Radeon Pro 5600M GPU
Apart from the three new additions, AMD also revealed its brand new Radeon Pro 5600M GPU. It is based on the RDNA Navi architecture and will replace older Vega models. Also, it comes with 40 compute units and 8GB of ultra-fast low-power High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) that delivers fast performance and power-efficiency in a single GPU.
A520 Chipset and StoreMI Storage Solution
Apart from the new CPUs and GPUs, AMD is also revealing a new motherboard platform, which is the A520 chipset for everyday PC gamers. It is an update to the previous A320 chipset. Now, it supports first and second-gen Ryzen processors.
As for the new storage solution, it is designed by a software company called Enmotus. It allows users to combine multiple SSDs and HDDs along with RAM to prioritize critical files. There is not much detail available about it right now, but according to AMD, this new algorithm will improve speed even more.
