Among the items touched upon by AMD in today’s earnings release, CEO Dr. Lisa Su’s prepared remarks included a brief update on AMD’s GPU product roadmap.

For those of you wondering where AMD’s mobile Radeon RX 6000 (Navi 2x) parts are, you shouldn’t be waiting too much longer. At the start of this year AMD announced that RDNA2 mobile products would be launching in the first half of the year, and on today’s call, Dr. Su has confirmed that this is still the case. At this point the company is expecting the first notebooks using its mobile-suitable GPUs to launch later in the quarter – which means that the hardware itself should be shipping to OEMs and ODMs soon.

Overall, AMD is continuing to ramp production of GPUs in what continues to be a tight environment for 7nm production capacity at TSMC, as well as the packaging AMD’s advanced chips require. Today’s financial release didn’t include any further information on when additional (mid-range) desktop video cards would launch, but those are expected on a similar time scale as AMD’s mobile parts.

    Your comment translated to non woke - "I dislike how you are speaking the truth about a country I classify as full of minorities so I will throw labels at you in a vain attempt to sound better then you".

    Take your phobias and shove them.

    No, it's 'freedom coal'.

    Mercury-induced small infant brain syndrome is, somehow, a human right and family value.

    "Makes me happy" is really only a good justification if nobody gets hurt in the process. Otherwise Jack the Ripper could use it to claim "justified murder". Gaming probably uses *a lot* less electricity than cryptomining and "distributes" the happiness more evenly. So it's fair to say that for the society and the world in general crypto brought nothing of value and worse, it brought a massive net loss. For a few individuals who got rich off of that general loss it was a win. Still an overall massive net loss for humanity.

    And for those who insist on the hypothetical benefits of crypto, they stay solidly hypothetical. To this point crypto has seen massive usage as a speculative "get rich" tool, or for illegal activity. The legitimate uses are still on paper. The practical benefits of leisurely activities like gaming far outweigh the practical benefits of BTC.

    Making money off of mining GPUs being humans happiness as well. Do you have a qualifier for how people should be allowed to enjoy their hardware, or a way to easure the amount of happiness?

    I also feel very happy when I use my crypto coins to support websites and creators I enjoy. How does that factor into your happiness equation?

    Gaming has almost nothing to do with my dislike of miners - it's very much about the waste of power. It's a massive false equivalence (and a slippery slope of its own) to equate that with video gaming; I'll admit that don't actually know what the global power usage of video gaming is, but nobody does it literally 24/7, let alone running dozens of GPUs at the same time. People using power for their leisure time is also both morally and materially different from people burning power on pointless algorithms for the singular goal of enriching themselves at the expense of others.

    Crypto is inherently unsustainable, and the kind of people who do it can't be appealed to by any kind of rational argument about the common good, because what they're doing is already inherently irrational. There's no good solution to the problem they're causing.

    I do enjoy the idea that we could "encourage" the Chinese government (or any other government) to engage in authoritarian behaviour, though. That's cute. Reply

    So you admit you cant back up your argument yet call it a false equivalence anyway. Sounds like someone is a little fact-phobic.

    If crypto is someone's hobby or interest, it means the same to them as games do to a gamer. No false equivelance there.

    Generally, trying to discuss things with folks who are concerned about the "common good" instead of what is just "good" is a waste of time... Reply

    Video gaming is a waste of power.
    Drag racing is a waste of power.
    Television is a waste of power.
    Movies are a waste of power.
    Driving to visit relatives is a waste of power.
