AMD unveils Ryzen Threadripper 2, RX Vega 56, Radeon Instinct roadmap

Intel pulls a surprise with 28-core CPU at Computex

According to CEO Lisa Su, AMD's second generation Ryzen Threadripper CPUs are "on track" for launch in Q3 2018.

AMD's Threadripper series with 12 cores starts at around $760, and goes up to nearly $1,000 for a 16-core model.

That was AMD which announced a new Threadripper processor that will house 32 cores.

Threadripper 2 doubles the original chip's 16 cores and 32 threads and is based on the same 12nm ZEN+ architecture as AMD's latest Ryzen desktop CPUs.

The other chip series AMD unveiled today is the Threadripper 2, the second generation of its central processing units for personal computers.

AMD has a new wave of X399 refresh motherboards coming to market now, but the Threadripper 2 processors are also backwards compatible with existing X399 motherboards. It will launch in both server and workstation form factors for key compute use cases in 2H 2018. But given that Threadripper is a modular design, there was never a reason why AMD couldn't simply slap down real die and activate a 32-core CPU analogous to what they've used for Epyc.

On the server front, the company provided a glimpse of its upcoming 7-nanometre Epyc processor that is set to be sampled by partners in the second half of the year.

It'll likely cost more than the AMD's current 16-core Threadripper CPU, which costs nearly $1,000 when they're released later this year. This card has been on show for nearly a year now, at various AMD press events, and has been a long time in the making - still, better late than never.

The event also saw AMD demonstrate the capabilities of its next-generation 7nm Vega GPU architecture through a demo for Radeon Instinct, a GPU squarely-aimed at data center and blockchain-focused users.

AMD also discussed where its graphics line is going in the future.

AMD also announced that Samsung's QLED TVs now support Radeon FreeSync experiences when hooked up to a PC equipped with a Radeon RX graphics card or Microsoft's Xbox One S and Xbox One X. Bring it on, AMD. It will be complemented with an open software ecosystem for machine learning, Wang said. Obviously, the GPU is based on the 14 nm process and has 8 GB of HBM2 video memory at its disposal, if the name mentioned above was too cryptic for you.
