AMD (Advanced Micro Devices)  is a vast technology company that has been taking the technology world by storm. This year’s CES (Consumer Electronics Show)  unleashed a multitude of new products that have excited the consumers.

On January 5th, 2022, AMD unveiled their most recent Ryzen line of CPUs (Central Processing Units), along with the announcement of many additional technology products, such as the Ryzen 7000 series CPUs for mobile devices and their new 5 nanometer architecture for their CPUs. AMD’s CPUs are ideal for productivity and gaming. Their new 5 nanometer architecture is stunning when comparing price to performance.  The latest Ryzen 3D CPU cache aids in making the new Zen 4 architecture. The new architecture focused on making this year’s design smaller and more affordable by using less materials. 

AMD also has a new way of producing their graphics cards (The GPU or graphics card is the component that displays an output to the screen) to prevent scalping of the cards and reselling them for large profits. They  achieved this by limiting individual consumers to buying a few of the latest products (including new CPUs and GPUs) and only allowing big companies to obtain a substantial number of these devices. AMD also devised a deal with their distributors  to limit the number of products consumers could purchase.

Because of AMD’s limited policy, new technology and affordability of products, now is a good time to purchase them.  The improved quality over other competitors makes these CPUs and GPUs a good deal; although, waiting for the launch of the Ryzen 3D CPUs could result in getting even  more bang for the price.
