At the press event in Taipei, AMD President and CEO Lisa Su shared with the world the upcoming new line of products coming from AMD, featuring the new Ryzen processor family. Some of the new products includes datacentre-centric products as well as consumer Ryzen line.
“We celebrate 30 years of AMD in Taiwan at Computex this year with great momentum around our new high-performance computing and graphics products,” said Lisa. “At Computex we highlighted the next wave of AMD products that will come to market, including our upcoming EPYC family of processors for datacenters, high-end Radeon ‘Vega’-based graphics cards, and new AMD Ryzen Threadripper and Ryzen mobile processors. We were thrilled to be joined by customers and partners including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo to showcase their latest AMD Ryzen-powered PCs.”
The EPYC processor features new form factor, which combines two processors into a single die. EPYC will deliver the highly-successful “Zen” x86 processing engine, scaling up to 32 physical cores.With its high core count, superior memory bandwidth, and unparalleled support for high-speed input/output (I/O) channels in a single chip, EPYC aims to revolutionize the dual-socket server market while simultaneously reshaping expectations for single-socket servers.
Ryzen is also expanding, with the announcement of the Ryzen 3 family line. The new chip will be coming to the market sometime in Q3 of 2017, with major OEMS to produce Ryzen-based products coming out around the same time. OEMs such as Dell, Acer and ASUS was on stage sharing their Ryzen products with the media at the event.
For the high performance segment, AMD also showed the new Threadripper processor, with its 16 cores and 32 thread count CPU. It shares the same LGA socket as the EPYC processor, but this is designed for high performance consumer gaming. Read more about it here.
Mobile is also something that AMD was eager to show, as they shared information on the Ryzen Mobile processor family at the same event. More information is available, which can be read here.
Lastly, AMD also shared some news on the new Radeon Vega architecture-based graphics card that is set to be available sometime this year. No availability shared but AMD will be talking more about the new GPU this coming July at SIGGRAPH 2017, the world’s largest and most influential conference for computer graphics and interactive techniques, hosted in Los Angeles, California.
