AMD Ryzen 2000 CPUs and APUs are already in the market with a great critical reception, however, it seems that AMD is looking to introduce new packaging for AMD Ryzen 7 2700X to match the performance in the presentation.
However, this is not confirmed and a Reddit user has posted an image of the alleged new packaging for AMD Ryzen 7 2700X. As you can see in the image below, the packaging has been changed from Red to black and it looks great.
However, AMD has not officially confirmed that this is indeed the new packaging for the Ryzen CPUs so, take it with a grain of salt.
Speaking of AMD, former AMD Senior Director for global product marketing, Chris Hook, has joined Intel. Hook will be “driving the marketing strategy for visual technologies and upcoming discrete graphics products.”
Furthermore, AMD revealed that AMD Ryzen makes up 60% of the total revenue for the first quarter of its current fiscal year.
Also, AMD And Nvidia AIB partners expect that the GPU shipments will plunge by 40% due to lowering values of crypto-currencies which will probably case a flood of second-hand GPUs in the market.
However, AMD doesn’t see these mining GPUs as a significant risk. This is according to AMD CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, who noted during the company’s earnings call that second-hand mining GPUs won’t be much of a problem as they flood in the market.
