AMD Ryzen 4000 & Radeon RX 6000 Release Dates Announced - Big Navi Performance & AIB Cards Availability Information

More than a year ago AMD announced their Ryzen 3000 CPUs based on the Zen 2 architecture along side "their high-end" Radeon RX 5700XT on July 7th of 2019. After 16 months it is time again for AMD to come out with their new CPU and GPU line ups to compete against Intel and NVIDIA in the respective fields. AMD 20-hours ago in a tweet announced that they are going to release their Zen 3 architecture based CPUs on October 10th and their Radeon RX 6000 Series GPUs on October 28th just as we predicted in our recent post.
It all started with Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions and Marketing at AMD, Frank Azor tweeting a tweet with what looked like a song lyrics, these lyrics were emphasizing "Tomorrow" - indicating a big reveal was about to happen the next day.

Yesterday AMD on their official twitter account tweeted the following:

This confirms that AMD will release their Zen 3 based Ryzen 4000 CPUs on 10th of October which is exactly a month away from now. Though we do not have any official information regarding these CPUs early rumours have indicated that these CPUs will have some where are 15-20% IPC (Instructions per clock) compared to their Zen 2 based counter-parts. 
There was also a rumour that AMD will name these Zen 3 based CPUs Ryzen 5000 series so that their APUs from the same architecture will be named in the same 5000 series instead of what has been happening for the last 3 years since the launch of first generation of Ryzen.
AMD also revealed that the Radeon RX 6000 GPUs aka "Big Navi" based on their RDNA2 GPU architecture will be released on 28th of October. Though there are still rumours regarding the naming scheme of the Ryzen Zen 3 CPUs, AMD have confirmed that the RDNA 2 will named Radeon RX 6000 series as they have mentioned the same in the tweet from their official Radeon RX twitter handle.

In more news we have some information regarding the next generation RDNA2 GPU performance. It comes from Igor's Lab, in a recent video which is in German language but translated by a reddit user as put out in this reddit post. According to this post, Igor's lab, he is not sure what the wattage of Big Navi will be, but from what he has been hearing - Big Navi consuming at around 275 watts power performs somewhere between the RTX 3070 and the 3080 and with more power consumption, at around 300W+, the performance of Big Navi comes around to about the performance of the RTX 3080. He also claimed that AMD, for now, does not have any card that can compete with the RTX 3090.
Lastly, Igor's Lab has also confirmed that AMD's AIB partners have still not gotten a bill of material and it takes roughly 3 months from getting that to release, so you can expect that at least till the end of this year we will only have AMD's Reference design cards and AIB cards will start shipping at the end of this year or early next year. Only time will tell.
