Computex: AMD RX Vega Consumer Launch July 2017, Threadripper Summer 2017

More details on the Radeon RX Vega range will be revealed in July at Siggraph 2017.

Machines powered by Ryzen include the Acer Aspire GX-281 desktop, the Asus Republic of Games Strix GL702ZC desktop replacement, the Asus G11DF Desktop, the Dell Inspiron Gaming desktop, the Lenovo IdeaCenter 720, the Dell Inspiron 27 7000 Series AIO and the Lenovo IdeaCentre 510. Previously codenamed "Naples", the first EPYC processor-based servers are scheduled to launch June 20. It's about twice as fast as the 8-core Ryzen 7 desktop processor that AMD introduced three months ago.

Prey ran on a Threadripper with four Vega graphics chips.

We attended AMD's Press Conference event today in Taipei, Taiwan at Computex, where the company discussed its existing and new products for 2017.

Following the recent launches of seven AMD Ryzen desktop processors, including AMD Ryzen™ 7 and AMD Ryzen™ 5, created to bring innovation and competition back to the full spectrum of premium PC markets, AMD outlined continued momentum for Ryzen.

AMD demonstrated ThreadRipper's performance in a few scenarios, including the now-famous Blender rendering test of the Ryzen CPU and logo. AMD offered up a taste of what is in store for gamers. Previous ROG gaming products based on AMD designs included Athlon 64 FX processors and were desktop models, until now.

AMD stopped short of confirming important details about ThreadRipper, such as its clock speed, price or release date, beyond repeating it will be out "this summer". It will feature "up to" 16 cores and 32 threads, 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes, and quad channel DDR4 memory. In the second there's a fair bit of Ryzen CPU stuff, and then a bit of Vega (non-consumer type), with the July announcement right at the end (54:30 onward).

The launch chipset for ThreadRipper will be the X399 chipset (ed: at this point AMD and Intel are literally trying to one-up each other).

As for the Ryzen 7's high-end desktops, systems will begin rolling out in the USA by HP by the end of June. All desktop Ryzen processors, including the upcoming budget-oriented Ryzen 3 lineup, have been certified as Oculus VR ready.

AMD officials also showed off the company's upcoming Ryzen-based mobile chip in what looked like a reference convertible laptop.

Meanwhile, the company also provided a demonstration of its new Radeon RX Vega graphics card, also based on the Vega architecture.
