With AMD teasing two big events coming in October, with the first being the debut of a new series of Ryzen desktop processors built on 'Zen 3' architecture. That event is scheduled to take place October 8 (which will be October 9 at 3:00 AM AEST). The second is perhaps the most interesting, as it covers AMD's answer to the recent NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series reveal.

With Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards set to be unveiled during a special October 28 event -- which will happen Thursday, October 29 at 3:00 AM AEST for us locals. With RDNA 2 architecture powering both the Xbox Series S|X and PlayStation 5 consoles -- so far we've seen glimpses at what it can do in terms of beautiful looking games like Ratchet & Clank and Horizon Forbidden West, which feature cutting-edge effects like real-time ray-tracing.

As per this recent Ubisoft announcement, Assassin's Creed Valhalla will run at 4K 60-fps on the Series X on launch day. So yeah, RDNA 2 will be powerful. AMD has in the past hinted that compared to the RX 5000 series it will offer up a 50% performance-per-watt improvement. With NVIDIA's flagship RTX 3080 effectively and impressively doubling the performance of its own RTX 2080, Big Green has held the top spot in terms of PC performance and advanced features like real-time ray-tracing for some time.

How the Radeon RX 6000 fairs against the RTX 3080 and the rest of the RTX 30 series line-up will be interesting to see -- in terms of both performance and pricing.

The first wave of RTX 30 series cards will be out by the time of the Radeon event, so direct comparisons will probably feature at some point during AMD's presentation. With the PS5 and Xbox Series X presumably out in November (the latter is confirmed), odds are the Radeon RX 6000 will come to PC around the same time -- and present similar and beefed-up versions of that hardware.

Like the console wars AMD's line-up will offer NVIDIA some competition as it has done in the CPU space.

If Radeon can do what Ryzen has done in the desktop processor space, well, that would be something to see. The Ryzen event scheduled for earlier in the month, which will showcase the new Zen 3 architecture, is less of a mystery than it is something we expect to be 'blow your digital socks off' impressive. As per our review of the AMD Ryzen 3800X, AMD is killing it in the CPU space.
