In compare to last year where AMD presented Zen 2 EPYC performance and showed 8c Ryzen CPU w/o heatspreader....this year there was basically no info about Zen 3. The reason could be that Zen 3 is more about architecture change than the layout change (high core count with chiplet design was unveiled at CES 2019). And also if AMD unveil Zen 3 as 6xALU+SMT4 powerfull uarch they would hurt sales of Zen 2 (especially when ordered higher waffer delivery from TSMC).This is CES. The actual Zen 3 public announcement will be focused on the server market as always. Only after that we will get information specific to the desktop market.
