Computex 2017: AMD Demos Ryzen Mobile SoC with Vega Graphics

We also got our first look at Threadripper, a physically large processor with 16 cores and 32 threads with support for quad-channel DDR4 memory and a whopping 64 PCI Express lanes. "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. Unfortunately, no details have been mentioned so far on pricing for the various Ryzen 3, 5, and 7 configuration options, though ASUS says the release window is planned for "later this summer".

At Computex on Tuesday AMD showed off Ryzen ThreadRipper and its new Naples EPYC CPU for datacenter equipment, which is launching on June 20. 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.

As promised Asus revealed ROG Strix GL702ZC, the world's first Ryzen laptop, at Computex in Taipei.

AMD demonstrated ThreadRipper's performance in a few scenarios, including the now-famous Blender rendering test of the Ryzen CPU and logo.

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has stated that nearly all top-notch PC makers are making computers based on its Ryzen desktop processors. Even better for AMD fans: The company showed off the highly anticipated monster CPU running two of the company's Radeon RX Vega in CrossFire mode.

But information about high-end desktop processors is not the only news AMD had to share at this year's Computex. Asus will use the new socket in its first Ryzen Threadripper motherboard, called the Zenith Extreme. X399 motherboards from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and ASRock are already in development and will be ready for the launch.

Above: AMD's Ryzen Threadripper debuts this summer for high-end PCs and game machines. At Computex 2017, AMD delivered several Ryzen Threadripper and Radeon "Vega" demonstrations, including Ryzen Threadripper and dual Radeon "Vega" based-GPUs seamlessly running Bethesda's new Prey® title at 4K resolution.

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.

Meanwhile, the company also provided a demonstration of its new Radeon RX Vega graphics card, also based on the Vega architecture. The card will be hitting the market after the release of AMD Vega Frontier edition.
