AMD announces Ryzen desktop CPU with Radeon Vega graphics

AMD announces Ryzen desktop CPU with Radeon Vega graphics

In the second quarter, Ryzen Pro Mobile parts-more or less identical to the regular Ryzen Mobile parts but with the lifecycle guarantees that enterprise buyers often demand for their fleets-will be released. Ryzen Desktop 2000 CPUs will also use a 12nm production process instead of the 14nm process used when Ryzen first launched past year. The APU also comes outfitted with full-on Radeon RX Vega graphics powered by six compute units.

Jim Anderson, head of the computing and graphics business group, said at the briefing that desktop Ryzen APUs combine Zen cores with advanced Vega GPUs.

It's not just about Zen+, however, as Zen 2 and Zen 3 (using 7nm process technology) are looking like solid products for next year and 2020.

AMD Introduces New Processors at CES

AMD roared back in 2017, first on the desktop, with its new line of Ryzen processors based on its Zen microarchitecture, and then toward the end of the year on mobile, when the first notebooks appeared using Ryzen Mobile chips. The Ryzen 3 2200G with Radeon Vega Graphics, on the other hand, packs 4 CPU cores and 4 threads, with a max boost clock of 3.7GHz. All newly announced desktop CPUs will use the same socket AM4 as the first-generation Ryzen models, but specific motherboard compatibility will depend on the presence of video outputs for the onboard graphics. The company says the Ryzen 5 2400G will play games at full HD resolution at frame rates much better than you'd see from the Intel Core i5-8400, and the Ryzen 3 2200G will similarly tower over the Core i3-8100. Let's start with the stuff we were expecting first.

What security features may be found in Ryzen Pro Mobile?

AMD launched a pair of high-end mobile Ryzen processors last fall and now at CES 2018, it's filling out its laptop APU family with a new pair of chips designed for affordable laptops and Chromebooks.

Man arrested for stalking Sachin Tendulkar's daughter Sara
Admitting that he had made several calls, Debkumar argued that there was nothing wrong in his desire to marry Sara. He was produced before a district court and on Monday he will be taken to Mumbai for further investigation.

The Ryzen 3 APUs officially launch on January 9th, although it may take a few weeks or months for partner models to hit the market.

The Sunnyvale, California company made the announcement at CES 2018, the big tech trade show in Las Vegas this week, and it will put pressure on Intel to respond. The Ryzen 7 1800X debuted at $499, but now it's only $349. There's a catch, however, as AMD says the 7nm Vega parts will initially be destined for machine learning Radeon Instinct products, presumably with consumer variants coming later. With some industrious GPU, memory, and memory timing tweaks AMD's resident overclocker, Sami Makinen, was able to deliver a 39% improvement on the 3DMark FireStrike score. The desktop Vega offering, for example, features a z-height more in the 3mm range.

Because these new desktop APUs use a lot of the new features of the Pinnacle Ridge chips they require a new BIOS to work too. Again, this is something AMD will have to detail at a future date.

Amit Shah lashes out at Left Front government in poll-bound Tripura
Shah warned the ruling CPI (M) that any attempt by them to trigger violence in the run-up to the polls would not be spared. The rate of crimes against women is very high, the rule of law does not exist.

So anyway that's basically everything AMD was ready to announce at this stage, the Ryzen desktop APUs in particular sound quite interesting, particularly for those looking at building a budget system. Without knowing the system specs and detail settings used, this is hard to validate, but AMD's long-running graphics experience should provide a marked improvement in gaming on lower-cost machines.
