AsRock H110 Pro BTC Plus

After Intel's pretty impressive performance at the first day of Computex 2017, the second-day show was mainly stolen by AMD for it revealed its potential rival against Intel's Core i9.

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

Apart from doubling core number of the Ryzen 7, it has been learned that the Ryzen Threadripper will be supported by four slots of DDR4 random access memory (RAM) that will be evenly distributed across each of the units within the processor. It's only 15W, but traditionally it has been Intel that has superior TDP numbers. So if you have air cooling, you'll hit a certain frequency, but AIO water cooling and LN2 setups will benefit more with XFR. The first EPYC processor-based servers are scheduled to launch on June 20, 2017, with widespread support expected from OEMs and channel partners, ushering in a new era for high-performance server processors and the datacenter. AMD is now in the process of slowly releasing information about the chip to build up interest ahead of its launch - which, before you ask, hasn't been set yet and is still "this summer". To cap things off, it paired a Threadripper CPU with dual Radeon RX Vega graphics cards for consumers. Several of these new systems are generating a lot of buzz at Computex including Dell's $600 VR-ready Inspiron Gaming Desktop; the $1,000 Inspiron 27 7000 all-in-one; and an Asus ROG gaming laptop with an eight-core Ryzen 7 CPU, Radeon RX 580 graphics and a 17-inch FreeSync display. Ryzen Threadripper will feature 16-cores and 32-threads and it will utilize the new X399 platform and LGA socket.

Trump likely to withdraw from Paris climate deal
Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt and White House strategist Steve Bannon want Trump to withdraw. Guterres said in that speech that "it would be very important for the US not to leave the Paris agreement".

Last were the announcements of Ryzen CPUs and RX 500 GPUs being integrated into the mobile platform of laptops and notebooks. The company's pitch for Epyc, with up to 32 cores and 64 threads, is simple-more cores, more memory bandwidth and greater I/O than Xeon E5 processors at the same price. Su's keynote didn't reveal any new details about the Radeon Vega line of GPUs, but did announce when PC gamers can look forward to AMD's official announcement of consumer-level Vega cards.

Virtual reality demands the latest technologies for realistic VR experiences and AMD announced that all Ryzen™ desktop processors are Oculus approved. 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.
