$35 billion biggest to date
News that AMD might acquire Xilinx was quite a surprise after the Nvidia–ARM consolidation, but not surprising. Using current stock and market value increase, AMD decided to make a strategic decision to play better in the data center, 5G, automotive, and fight against the Intel–Altera alliance.
Data center strategy
It is impossible to get a comment from either AMD or Xilinx on this matter, but as far as we could ask around, AMD is going to attempt to buy Xilinx. The move will help the company’s data center strategy, and it is carefully targeted.
Launching later this year
In a message on her Twitter account, AMD's CEO Dr. Lisa Su confirmed once again that Zen 3 is on track and coming later this year.
Coming in 2020
AMD has confirmed that earlier rumors are not true and that Zen 3 is still on track for 2020.
Makes $58.5 million a year

Possible refresh as well
During the Q4 2019 earnings call, AMD's president and CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, confirmed that the 2nd generation RDNA GPU architecture will launch in 2020, as well as hinting at a possible refresh of the existing product lineup in the same year.
Ray tracing as well
In a Q&A session after AMD's keynote at CES 2020, members of the press got to ask some big questions, and luckily, AMD's CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, confirmed that we will indeed see a big, or high-end Navi-based graphics card, as well as tap into ray tracing with its discrete graphics cards.
Shall we stock up again?
The chief executive officer of Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has given a clear warning about the fragility of the semiconductor supply chain, prompted by the ever fiercer rattling of sabres between the United States of America and mainland China.
