AMD: Hey Intel, we have lots of CPU cores too

The Vega Frontier Edition will be available for professionals at the end of June, but consumers will have to wait at least two more months to get their hands on some new AMD hardware. "Immediately it peaks all 32 threads and just an incredible amount of horsepower", said Kevin Lensing, general manager of the Client Business Unit at AMD. AMD also announced that several major OEMs are releasing new Ryzen-based systems, along with a new Ryzen-based laptop.

Threadripper stepped out in public for the first time at Computex in Taipei, where AMD ran its 16-core Ryzen-based desktop chip through various benchmarks and games. We were thrilled to be joined by customers and partners including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, and Lenovo to showcase their latest AMD Ryzen-powered PCs.

If mobile Ryzen performs as expected, ASUS will be responsible in part for catapulting AMD back into the mobile gaming spotlight with designs like the ROG Strix GL702ZC.

AMD demonstrated ThreadRipper's performance in a few scenarios, including the now-famous Blender rendering test of the Ryzen CPU and logo. It was widely speculated that AMD would release the GPU at this years Computex event but at the event AMD has chosen to not release the card... 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. AMD offered up a taste of what is in store for gamers.

Ford appoints 'true visionary' Jim Hackett as president and CEO
Technology industry executives, whose offices had been designed and furnished by Steelcase , treated Hackett like a star. But naming a 62-year-old from the furniture trade to replace him hints at how unprepared the family was for a revolt.

But information about high-end desktop processors is not the only news AMD had to share at this year's Computex.

AMD's revitalization of ultra-premium PCs for the high-end desktop (HEDT) market was recently cemented with the announcement of Ryzen™ Threadripper™, targeted at the world's fastest ultra-premium desktop systems, and scheduled for release in summer 2017.

SIGGRAPH 2017 begins on July 30th and ends on August 3rd. We noticed visible tearing during the session, which is likely due to the projector that AMD used for the presentation. A working sample of a sub-15mm thin 2-in-1 with a Ryzen Mobile processor was shown on stage. All desktop Ryzen processors, including the upcoming budget-oriented Ryzen 3 lineup, have been certified as Oculus VR ready.

At Computex, she showcased AMD's new line of products, including the EPYC family of processors for datacenters, Ryzen mobile processors, high-end Radeon Vega-based graphics cards and the AMD Ryzen Threadripper.
