AMD Exhibits PC Innovation Leadership at Computex 2017

AMD held its Computex 2017 keynote today in Taiwan, mainly talking about CPU and APU plans-all of which you already know if you've been following our coverage on Ryzen. At Computex apart from a few teasers of the vega graphics card AMD did not give out any new information on the new graphics card either.

Mobile Ryzen was capped off with ASUS' new Strix GL702ZC 8 core ROG gaming laptop.

AMD, which trails Intel and Nvidia in marketshare, announced ThreadRipper at its analyst day earlier this month as the chip it will aim at the high-end desktop market.

ThreadRipper has about twice the power of its Ryzen 7 CPUs, which are powering several new Windows desktops from Acer, Asus, Dell, and Lenovo.

Late yesterday AMD showcased the power of its upcoming Ryzen and Radeon products during its press conference at COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2017. That being said, AMD hasn't forgotten about PC gamers, and is working to bring Vega to consumers in the near future.

While I think we were all hoping for a much strong Radeon RX Vega video card reveal, all we got was demos of a 4 card Radeon Instinct look at rendering on a Threadripper machine, and look at Radeon RX Vega "CrossFire" running Prey at 4K.




Finally, AMD announced that its Epyc server CPUs will be available in single- and dual-socket configurations beginning from June 20. ASRock, Asus, Gigabyte, and MSi will have motherboards ready when the chip launches. Previous ROG gaming products based on AMD designs included Athlon 64 FX processors and were desktop models, until now.

AMD's revitalization of ultra-premium PCs for the high-end desktop (HEDT) market was recently cemented with the announcement of Ryzen™ Threadripper™, targeted at the world's fastest ultra-premium desktop systems, and scheduled for release in summer 2017.

The device also boasts an AMD Radeon RX 580 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 memory. Ryzen Mobile was also held up for everyone to see and used in a 2-in-1 convertible laptop. RX Vega will be launched at SIGGRAPH at the end of July.

As expected, AMD dished more details on the forthcoming ThreadRipper lineup, which tops out with 16 cores and 32 threads.

Last were the announcements of Ryzen CPUs and RX 500 GPUs being integrated into the mobile platform of laptops and notebooks. The company's previously-unveiled Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, meanwhile, has received an official launch date of June 27th.
