It appears that AMD has led us all down the garden path with its new Vega graphics card that the company first announced more than a year ago.
AMD's new ThreadRipper processor is absolutely massive.
At a press conference on the sidelines of the annual Computex trade show in Taipei, AMD made a number of announcements covering products across its portfolio, including the Epyc platform for servers, Ryzen desktop and mobile CPUs, Threadripper enthusiast CPUs, and Radeon Vega graphics processors. "Now it's a little bit bigger than the mobile version you'll notice, but a lot more compute power", AMD's Jim Anderson quipped.
Finally, not to be outdone, AMD's 32 core & 128 PCIe lane Epyc CPU for servers has also received some news of its own.
AMD's Ryzen Threadripper/X399 platform takes I/O to a level never seen before in a consumer desktop machine.
Prey ran on a Threadripper with four Vega graphics chips. However, Su did not say that Vega for consumers would be available on that date, only that the official announcement for it would occur.
"HP is focused on delivering bold innovation in the gaming space, including virtual reality and eSports, with a portfolio that offers extreme performance and the best possible experience for all gamers", said Kevin Frost, vice president and general manager of consumer personal systems, HP Inc.
There was no pricing suggested for Threadripper and no date more precise than "summer 2017". The X399 chipset, not to be confused with Intel's recently announced X299 chipset, will post motherboard availability at launch from ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI. And... well... let's just say that we weren't impressed by what AMD showcased (as there was tearing during that demo).
AMD also unveiled the Ryzen mobile accelerated processing unit in an ultra-portable laptop references design.
It looks like AMD has no plans to replace their mainstream Radeon RX 500 series cards with Vega based offerings anytime soon.
Virtual reality demands the latest technologies for realistic VR experiences and AMD announced that all Ryzen™ desktop processors are Oculus approved. The Radeon RX Vega, which is more geared toward gaming workloads, is expected to launch at SIGGRAPH 2017 in Los Angeles later this year.
