Enterprise CPUs

Although COVID isn't over quite yet, things are close enough for this year's Computex event. Kicking things off once again is AMD, who is broadcasting a keynote address headed up by the one and only Dr. Lisa Su. According to AMD, the PC-focused keynote will cover both mobile and desktop, with AMD and its partners focusing on cutting edge hardware and "breakthrough performance." AMD's Computex keynotes rarely disappoint, and we don't expect this one too, either. So be sure to join us at 2am Eastern (06:00 UTC) to catch a glimpse of what AMD has planned for the rest of 2022 and beyond.
