AMD Launches for Threadripper and Radeon RX Vega

Adjust Comment Print

This years AMD's stock price have been climbing rapidly after successfully releasing its ryzen cpu but AMD's stock prices have tumbled after announcing poor earnings and after misleading people on contract with intel. At Computex apart from a few teasers of the vega graphics card AMD did not give out any new information on the new graphics card either. AMD showed off its massive 32-core Epyc CPU during the company's eventful Financial Analysts Day and it looks like Threadripper will be similar to AMD's server processors. This is an exclusive deal between AMD and Asus and there is little that we know about this partnership at the moment.

Earlier today at Computex 2017 AMD officially showcased Ryzen Threadipper.

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. A working sample of a sub-15mm thin 2-in-1 with a Ryzen Mobile processor was shown on stage. Asus will use the new socket in its first Ryzen Threadripper motherboard, called the Zenith Extreme. 'At Computex we highlighted the next wave of AMD products that will come to market, including our upcoming Epyc family of processors for datacentres, high-end Radeon Vega-based graphics cards, and new AMD Ryzen Threadripper and Ryzen mobile processors. Previous ROG gaming products based on AMD designs included Athlon 64 FX processors and were desktop models, until now.

The Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC pairs Ryzen with the Radeon RX 580, AMD's recently released Radeon graphics champion (at least until the wait for Vega ends). Also confirmed was the summer 2017 launch date for Threadripper and the X399 high-end platform, with further details being given.


When it does launch, there will be X399 chipset motherboards from ASRock, Asus, Gigabyte and MSI available.

For a product not slated to be released until the end of this year, seeing a low profile, high performance demo of the platform is a good sign for AMD and a welcome indicator that the company could finally fight back in the mobile notebook space.

AMD took the stage at Computex 2017 to announce that Radeon RX Vega will launch at Siggraph 2017, which takes place July 30 to August 3. The company's previously-unveiled Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, meanwhile, has received an official launch date of June 27th.
