AMD Ryzen Threadripper Officially showcased, Will Utilize new X399 Platform

A lot of this news was from the OEMs that are putting Ryzen into their offerings, including Acer, ASUS, Dell, and Lenovo. Previously codenamed "Naples", the first EPYC processor-based servers are scheduled to launch June 20. Unfortunately, no details have been mentioned so far on pricing for the various Ryzen 3, 5, and 7 configuration options, though ASUS says the release window is planned for "later this summer". Officials said it would feature four cores alongside Radeon graphics in a single chip.

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.

We attended AMD's Press Conference event today in Taipei, Taiwan at Computex, where the company discussed its existing and new products for 2017. "We look forward to continuing our partnership with AMD to bring more exciting products to the market together". Among them there is the ASUS ROG Strix GL702ZC, the first gaming laptop on the market to pack an AMD Ryzen processor.

The highest-end of Ryzen Threadripper will have 40 MB of CPU Cache.

But information about high-end desktop processors is not the only news AMD had to share at this year's Computex. Most of what was known officially about Threadripper was confirmed, with the release of 16-core 32-thread CPUs being the headline chips, running on a new X399 chipset platform, using a new socket called TR4 rather than the AM4 for Ryzen.

Above: AMD's Ryzen Threadripper debuts this summer for high-end PCs and game machines. X399 motherboards from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and ASRock are already in development and will be ready for the launch. Ryzen Mobile laptops for consumers are expected to launch before the end of 2017, while models for corporate and enterprise customers will come out in the first half of 2018. And... well... let's just say that we weren't impressed by what AMD showcased (as there was tearing during that demo).

Last were the announcements of Ryzen CPUs and RX 500 GPUs being integrated into the mobile platform of laptops and notebooks.

Virtual reality demands the latest technologies for realistic VR experiences and AMD announced that all Ryzen™ desktop processors are Oculus approved.

After months of high speculation about the possible release date, AMD has finally announced the release date of the gaming focus graphic card, AMD Radeon RX Vega.
