AMD has 'next-generation' gaming announcements in store for E3

What you need to know

  • AMD will livestream its "Next Horizon Gaming" event at E3.
  • AMD president and CEO Dr. Lisa Su will hit the stage on June 10, 2019, at 3 p.m. PT.
  • The company is promising a look at products that "will power gaming from PC to console to cloud for years to come."

AMD announced today that it will host a livestream at E3 2019, giving fans a look at its "next-generation" gaming products. The chipmaker hasn't revealed what, exactly, we can expect, but it promises a look at the tech that "will power gaming from PC to console to cloud for years to come."

Given that we're expecting to hear more about Microsoft's next-generation Xbox, codenamed Scarlett, at E3, AMD could be planning to showcase some of the advancements we'll see in the upcoming console generation. PC gamers may also have something to feast on if AMD has some new graphics cards to deploy, but, as PC Gamer notes, it's likely we'll see the company talk about its upcoming Navi GPU architecture at Computex later in May.

One thing seems almost certain about the event, however. In the teaser logo, AMD chose to add a not-so-subtle highlight to the "Z" in "Horizon." That's likely a clue that we'll get to take a look at the company's Ryzen 3000 series chips.
