The AMD CES 2023 Keynote Dwell Weblog (6:30pm PT/02:30 UTC)

09:28PM EST – CES keynote season continues this week with the second main PC-centric keynote of the occasion, being held by AMD. Helmed as all the time by CEO Dr. Lisa Su, AMD is taking the middle stage this night to share their plans and merchandise for client electronics for 2023. AMD is within the midst of rolling out their Zen 4 CPU structure and RDNA 3 GPU structure throughout their product strains, so there’s ample area in each AMD’s desktop and cell product lineups to introduce some new components – and we do not anticipate to return away empty-handed

09:29PM EST – I am instructed that this can be a truely reside presentation – not a pre-recorded video – which can make it the primary reside AMD keynote since earlier than the pandemic

09:29PM EST – So no strain, AMD 😉

09:30PM EST – This could run for an hour. And judging from previous AMD CES keynotes it needs to be full of bulletins

09:30PM EST – Although the reside format will hopefully imply it runs at a bit extra reasonable tempo

09:31PM EST – It additionally means there’s an opportunity it may go a bit lengthy. Or begin a bit late, as would appear to be the case right here. However such is the character of reside displays

09:32PM EST – Talking broadly based mostly on bulletins and conferences for this yr’s present, the PC presence as CES 2023 seems to be to be solely light-to-modest

09:32PM EST – There are many laptops to indicate off, because of a number of corporations providing new components appropriate for cell techniques

09:33PM EST – However the remainder of the PC ecosystem has a lighter footprint. Partially as a result of AMD and Intel simply launched their present desktop platforms just a few months in the past

09:34PM EST – Even VESA is not in South Corridor this yr. These corporations which might be on the present are more and more doing non-public suites for smaller audiences

09:34PM EST – And right here we go

09:35PM EST – Beginning with an inspirational video

09:36PM EST – Seems to be like this can be a generic CES bumper, moderately than an AMD video

09:36PM EST – And talking of CES, first on the stage is the CTA chairman, Gary Shapiro

09:37PM EST – Gary is speaking briefly about AMD, and the way issues have modified because the pandemic

09:38PM EST – (The pandemic nonetheless weighs closely on CES; attendance remains to be round half it was at its peak in 2020)

09:38PM EST – And now speaking about Dr. Lisa Su and her many accomplishments

09:38PM EST – And here is Lisa

09:39PM EST – Or can be, after this video bumper

09:40PM EST – Okay, this can be a promo reel for AMD. Collectively we advance_

09:40PM EST – (It may use some glowsticks)

09:41PM EST – Lisa welcomes the gang and talks about how fantastic it’s to be right here in individual

09:41PM EST – That is THE official opening keynote for CES. The one Microsoft used to helm for a really very long time. It goes to indicate how issues have modified
