AMD Introduces Threadripper at Computex


AMD also hit back at Intel after Tuesday's revelation of the Core i9. 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".

AMD has taken to the stage at Computex 2017 with promises of a full Vega graphics processor unveiling at the SIGGRAPH conference, partnerships with major OEMs on Ryzen-powered desktops, and a launch date for the first servers powered by the company's Epyc - formerly Naples - processors. This is an exclusive deal between AMD and Asus and there is little that we know about this partnership at the moment.

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

Although AMD's Epyc CPU is aimed at servers and workstations, there's a good chance Threadripper will resemble Epyc a lot more than previous Ryzen CPUs. AMD's first promising product in the server space in almost half a decade will be launching on June 20. Most of what was known officially about Threadripper was confirmed, with the release of 16-core 32-thread CPUs being the headline chips, running on a new X399 chipset platform, using a new socket called TR4 rather than the AM4 for Ryzen. Previous ROG gaming products based on AMD designs included Athlon 64 FX processors and were desktop models, until now.

AMD didn't offer any updated availability details for ThreadRipper, which is scheduled for release this summer. 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. During the show, ASUS has unveiled the first AMD X399 motherboard which is compatible with the upcoming AMD Threadripper processors. And... well... let's just say that we weren't impressed by what AMD showcased (as there was tearing during that demo).

As for the Ryzen 7's high-end desktops, systems will begin rolling out in the U.S. by HP by the end of June. Ryzen Mobile was also held up for everyone to see and used in a 2-in-1 convertible laptop. All desktop Ryzen processors, including the upcoming budget-oriented Ryzen 3 lineup, have been certified as Oculus VR ready.

Speaking of Vega, AMD announced that it would launch the new graphics cards at the end of July at Siggraph 2017.
