Computex: AMD unveils 16-core Ryzen 9 1998X 'Threadripper' and X399 platform

Due for launch in Summer 2017, AMD showed off its 16 core, 32 thread Threadripper CPU powering through a Blender workload as well as running demanding workloads alongside four Vega GPUs. That being said, AMD hasn't forgotten about PC gamers, and is working to bring Vega to consumers in the near future.

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

This future laptop will feature AMD's quad-core mobile Ryzen with Radeon graphics. The tech company stated that the first EPYC processor-based servers will launch on June 20 and will get huge support from original equipment manufacturers and channel partners.

"Dell is excited to implement AMD Ryzen™ solutions in our new Dell Inspiron Gaming Desktop and Computex d&i award victor, the Inspiron 27 7000 AIO", said Ray Wah, senior vice president and general manager, Dell Consumer and Small Business Product Group.

But information about high-end desktop processors is not the only news AMD had to share at this year's Computex. The Ryzen mobile processor is a step ahead in terms of CPU performance and is 40% better on graphics than AMD's current products.

Above: AMD's Ryzen Threadripper debuts this summer for high-end PCs and game machines. Siggraph runs through August 3rd, so I am not sure we are going to see that as a hard launch, but we can be hopeful.

At its press conference this morning in Taipei, AMD gave us a look at a broad range of upcoming products. X399 motherboards from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and ASRock are already in development and will be ready for the launch.

In case you are wondering, this means that the AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics card will be released at the end of July. Ryzen Mobile was also held up for everyone to see and used in a 2-in-1 convertible laptop.

Last were the announcements of Ryzen CPUs and RX 500 GPUs being integrated into the mobile platform of laptops and notebooks. All desktop Ryzen processors, including the upcoming budget-oriented Ryzen 3 lineup, have been certified as Oculus VR ready.

On the graphics side, AMD's Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card for AI and deep learning applications will be made available on June 27, while consumer gaming graphics cards based on the same Vega architecture will be launched at the Siggraph conference near the end of July.
