HWM (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

Be­sides the fact that the Sun­ny­vale com­pany fell short of ac­tu­ally an­nounc­ing the new Radeon RX Vega, AMD still had a fair bit to share in re­gards to its new CPUs. To kick things off, Dr. Lisa Su, Pres­i­dent and CEO of AMD, first un­veiled EPYC, its all-new work­sta­tion CPU that’s de­signed to go head to head with In­tel’s Xeon CPU.

Then came the an­nounce­ment of the Ryzen Thread­rip­per, AMD’s new en­thu­si­ast-level CPU for the X399 chipset. AMD said that Thread­rip­per will launch with sev­eral SKUs, with its top-of-the-line model pos­sess­ing up to 16-cores, 32-threads, and a whop­ping 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes, all of which can be uti­lized by all Thread­rip­per SKUs.

Lastly, AMD also an­nounced its new Ryzen Mo­bile APU. As its first Zen-based APU, the com­pany stated that the CPU in Ryzen Mo­bile would be 40-per­cent faster than the older 7th gen­er­a­tion APU, and its on-die Vega GPU would drive 40 per­cent more per­for­mance, com­pared to its pre­de­ces­sor. All this, and it would still con­sume half the power than last year’s Bris­tol Ridge, AMD con­firmed.
