AMD Boasts Rising Support For Ryzen Chips: Should It Worry Intel?

The new ROG Strix GL702ZC will be available with the octa-core Ryzen 7 1700 processor in the top-end configuration, while more affordable variants will get the hexa-core Ryzen 5 1600 and the unannounced quad-core Ryzen 3 1200 processor. It's still early days for the chip, as only a reference convertible built by AMD was shown, but it featured a 4-core 8-thread CPU with Vega GPU architecture (not Polaris), combined into a single APU.

AMD also announced the release date for the EPYC, its new high-performance processor for cloud-based and conventional on-premise data centers. More details on the Radeon RX Vega range will be revealed in July at Siggraph 2017.

Further, the executive said, "We were thrilled to be joined by customers and partners including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo to showcase their latest AMD Ryzen-powered PC". The Ryzen mobile processor is a step ahead in terms of CPU performance and is 40% better on graphics than AMD's current products.

But AMD still hasn't yet revealed clock speeds and, more importantly, prices for Threadripper or any of the other Ryzen 9 parts that are no doubt planned.

The Threadripper 16-core and 32-thread CPU was demod briefly, paired with two Radeon RX Vega GPUs running Prey at 4K. AMD's first promising product in the server space in almost half a decade will be launching on June 20.


AMD didn't offer any updated availability details for ThreadRipper, which is scheduled for release this summer. Major Taiwanese brands such as Asrock, Asus, Gigabyte and MSI will have motherboards ready when the chip ships. The Radeon RX Vega, which is more geared toward gaming workloads, is expected to launch at SIGGRAPH 2017 in Los Angeles later this year.

"The reception and response from both consumers and enthusiasts for Ryzen has been remarkable, and we're just getting started as we roll out a full line-up of Ryzen processors that deliver exceptional performance for premium and high-performance desktops and notebooks", said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, AMD Compute and Graphics business group.

Last were the announcements of Ryzen CPUs and RX 500 GPUs being integrated into the mobile platform of laptops and notebooks. AMD yesterday confirmed that the 32-core, 128-PCIe lane Epyc CPU will be launched on 20 June.

Asus has unveiled its new ROG Strix gaming laptop, which boasts an eight-core AMD Ryzen processor and Radeon RX 580 graphics card.
