AMD's 'TR4' Threadripper CPU socket is huge

AMD's 'TR4' Threadripper CPU socket is huge

The top-of-the-range ROG Strix GL702ZC is powered by a Ryzen 7 1700 CPU, while model variants with smaller Ryzen processors will also be available.

Mobile Ryzen was capped off with ASUS' new Strix GL702ZC 8 core ROG gaming laptop. AMD showed off its massive 32-core Epyc CPU during the company's eventful Financial Analysts Day and it looks like Threadripper will be similar to AMD's server processors.

A frustrating evening for those hoping AMD would provide substantive details about the consumer versions of the "Vega" GPU at Computex. "At Computex we highlighted the next wave of AMD products that will come to market, including our upcoming EPYC family of processors for datacenters, high-end Radeon "Vega"-based graphics cards, and new AMD Ryzen Threadripper and Ryzen mobile processors".

India move into Sudirman Cup badminton quarters
Sindhu plays against China's Li Xuerui in the women's singles final match of the Denmark Open in Odense October 18, 2015. India have not been able to make a mark in the mixed team tournament, with group stage exits in 2013 and 2015.

But information about high-end desktop processors is not the only news AMD had to share at this year's Computex.

While lacking any real hard numbers, the Ryzen Mobile segment confirmed expectation and rumors about its APU range, namely that we should start to see ultra-portable reference designs coming out soon.

For server customers, AMD promised that the first off-the-shelf machines featuring its Epyc processors in single- and dual-socket configurations would be hitting the market on June 20th. The X399 chipset motherboards for the new socketTR4 platform are designed for the highest tier of PC enthusiast society, who demand cutting-edge features such as 16 core/32 thread processors, quad channel memory with support up to 2TB of RAM, superior IO, and who choose the ultimate processor and motherboards as an extension of their personal brand. If you're a fan of announcements for announcements, we now know that the hardware chip maker will officially announce the Radeon Vega line of GPUs at some point during SIGGRAPH this year. During the show, ASUS has unveiled the first AMD X399 motherboard which is compatible with the upcoming AMD Threadripper processors. RX Vega will be launched at SIGGRAPH at the end of July.

Honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice
Numerous young men and women not lived their life enough and sacrifice their lives in battle to preserve our freedom. The date was chosen, at least in part, because it wasn't the anniversary of any particular battle in the Civil War .

At Computex on Tuesday AMD showed off Ryzen ThreadRipper and its new Naples EPYC CPU for datacenter equipment, which is launching on June 20.

Last were the announcements of Ryzen CPUs and RX 500 GPUs being integrated into the mobile platform of laptops and notebooks.

After months of high speculation about the possible release date, AMD has finally announced the release date of the gaming focus graphic card, AMD Radeon RX Vega. Unfortunately, AMD's CEO Lisa Su didn't divulge anymore details than what we covered already for Vega Frontier Edition, except that it would be faster.
