WebsiteDuring the COMPUTEX CEO Keynote from the 23rd to the 25th, the CEOs or CSOs of AMD, NXP, Micron and Supermicro were present. The CEOs or CSOs of AMD, NXP, Micron, and Supermicro all made appearances during the COMPUTEX CEO Keynote from the 23rd to the 25th, giving their outlook on the future of the industry and information technology, as well as introducing some company trends and new products. Microsoft and NVIDIA participated by way of live online Keynotes, but the much-anticipated Huang did not appear, nor did he release any more information about the 40-series graphics cards. Intel did not participate in COMPUTEX this year due to the epidemic, so we won't be able to see the red, green and blue together last year.

This year's COMPUTEX offline show officially ended on May 27th, while the online show COMPUTEX DigitalGo will be held until June 6th, so if you're interested, you can take a "cloud walk" through the link above. In addition, we've compiled a list of information and products that may be of interest to you.


A new line of APUs codenamed Mendocino

A Zen 2 architecture APU using TSMC's 6nm process with RNDA 2 cores, up to 4 cores and 8 threads, LPDDR 5 memory and the latest video encoding. The Mendocino series APUs aim to provide a power-efficient solution for the Windows laptop and Chromebook market in the $400-$700 price range, and are specifically optimized for video office software such as Teams, Zoom and Google Meet, and are expected to deliver "no less than 10 hours of endurance under mixed loads," the company announced at launch. The launch announced that it expects to achieve "no less than 10 hours of battery life under mixed loads," with a planned launch date of the fourth quarter of this year.


CEO Keynote Considering the Zen 2 architecture's performance so far, this year The second half of the year may see Mendocino competing back and forth with Celeron and even i3 in the entry-level notebook market. The APU also has a lot to do with the processor codenamed "Van Gogh" from Steam Deck earlier this year, and there may even be more Mendocino-based handhelds to follow.
