AMD Vega to be released in August!

AMD also announced the release date for the EPYC, its new high-performance processor for cloud-based and conventional on-premise data centers.

If the build quality matches the internal hardware-and it usually does in ROG products-the Strix GL702ZC is shaping up to be gear that AMD can show as proof of "This is what we can do in laptops", taking a place beside the first-ever Ryzen all-in-one announced earlier today.

The company's announcement comes a day after Intel wowed audiences at the Computex IT trade show in Taipei, with its new i9 processors, which pack in up to 18 processing cores and 36 threads. The render required a mere 13.04 seconds, which is much faster than the 36 seconds AMD demonstrated with the Ryzen 7 1800X prior to its launch. AMD brings their A-game to Computex, and for a good reason: as a PC focused show, it gives them great exposure, but it also allows them to promote their OEM relationships, the latter of which are crucial to AMD's survival as the CPU underdog.

In a little bit another context, we're really hoping that AMD is going to shed some more light on the upcoming Threadripper chips such as pricing and maybe even release date. Previous ROG gaming products based on AMD designs included Athlon 64 FX processors and were desktop models, until now.

Hamilton: I sensed Vettel was angry
Daniel Ricciardo brought his Red Bull across in a distant third place to complete the podium, his best result of the season. Pulling out a small lead, Hamilton eventually began chipping away at the Ferrari's advantage.

Threadripper CPUs were outlined to have "up to" 16-C/32T, 64 lanes of PCIe 3.0 IO, Quad Channel DDR, and of course use the X399 chipset platform. '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. The tech company stated that the first EPYC processor-based servers will launch on June 20 and will get vast support from original equipment manufacturers and channel partners.

Regarding information on PCIe lanes, AMD said that whether you go for high-end or low-end Threadripper, you will always get 48 PCIe lanes dedicated to multiple graphics cards functionality. ASRock, Asus, Gigabyte, and MSi will have motherboards ready when the chip launches. The demo featured the Ryzen mobile-powered notebook playing HD video content.

Speaking of Vega, AMD announced that it would launch the new graphics cards at the end of July at Siggraph 2017. Not long ago, AMD said that the first Vega-based GPU coming to the market will be the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, or Vega FE from now on.
