AMD Boasts Rising Support For Ryzen Chips: Should It Worry Intel?
AMD Radeon RX Vega will be launched during SIGGRAPH 2017, at the end of July
02 June, 2017, 02:03
On the graphics side, AMD'sRadeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card for AI and deep learning applications will be made available on June 27, while consumer gaming graphics cards based on the same Vega architecture will be launched at the Siggraph conference near the end of July.
So, the earliest we'll see these graphics cards is the very end of July, and that might just be an initial reveal of the hardware, as opposed to an actual launch - the RX Vega cards may not hit the shelves until several weeks after. All chips in the Ryzen 9 range will support quad-channel DDR4 memory.
'We celebrate 30 years of AMD in Taiwan at Computex this year with great momentum around our new high-performance computing and graphics products, ' enthused AMD president and chief executive Lisa Su following the company's keynote speech at the Computex tradeshow this week.
Threadripper stepped out in public for the first time at Computex in Taipei, where AMD ran its 16-core Ryzen-based desktop chip through various benchmarks and games.

As far as the pricing and processing frequencies of these processors are concerned, AMD didn't announce them. The ASUS Republic of Gamers Strix GL7027C laptop will actually use a Ryzen 7 CPU, making it the world's first 8-core gaming laptop. For example, Intel's new 6C/12T right up to the 10C/20T have 140W TDPs, while AMD sips 125W.
At Computex, AMD showed off Ryzen Threadripper running Blender alongside its upcoming Radeon Frontier Edition. "Our message is that for the true enthusiast-class performance capability this combination will be an incredible combination", said Su.
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.
