AMD Redefines High-Performance Computing with New Processor and Graphics Products Preview at CES 2018


New Gene짯ra짯ti짯on of Ryzen CPUs, New Ryzen APUs, New Rade짯on Vega Mobi짯le GPUs Coming in 2018

Las Vegas 2018 CES 1/7/2018

Buil짯ding on the glo짯bal enthu짯si짯asm gene짯ra짯ted in 2017 by Ryzen꽓 pro짯ces짯sors and Rade짯on꽓 gra짯phics tech짯no짯lo짯gy, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today detail짯ed its forth짯co짯ming roll-out plan for its new and next gene짯ra짯ti짯on of high-per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting and gra짯phics pro짯ducts during an event in Las Vegas just pri짯or to the ope짯ning of CES 2018. Along짯side announ짯cing the first desk짯top Ryzen꽓 pro짯ces짯sors with built-in Rade짯on꽓 Vega Gra짯phics, AMD also detail짯ed the full line up of Ryzen꽓 mobi짯le APUs inclu짯ding the new Ryzen꽓 PRO and Ryzen꽓 3 models, and pro짯vi짯ded a first look at the per짯for짯mance of its upco짯ming 12nm 2nd gene짯ra짯ti짯on Ryzen꽓 desk짯top CPU expec짯ted to launch in April. In gra짯phics, AMD announ짯ced the expan짯si짯on of the 쏺ega fami짯ly with Rade짯on Vega Mobi짯le and that its first 7nm pro짯duct is plan짯ned to be a Rade짯on 쏺ega GPU spe짯ci짯fi짯cal짯ly built for machi짯ne lear짯ning applications.

We suc짯cessful짯ly accom짯plished the ambi짯tious goals we set for our짯sel짯ves in 2017, reestab짯li짯shing AMD as a high-per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting lea짯der with the intro짯duc짯tion and ramp of 10 dif짯fe짯rent pro짯duct fami짯lies, said AMD Pre짯si짯dent and CEO Dr. Lisa Su. 쏻e are buil짯ding on this momen짯tum in 2018 as we make our stron짯gest pro짯duct port짯fo짯lio of the last deca짯de even stron짯ger with new CPUs and GPUs that bring more fea짯tures and more per짯for짯mance to a broad set of markets. 

Technology Updates

AMD CTO and SVP Mark Paper짯mas짯ter shared updates on AMD셲 pro짯cess tech짯no짯lo짯gy road짯maps for both x86 pro짯ces짯sors and gra짯phics architectures.

  • x86 Pro짯ces짯sors
    • The 쏾en core, curr짯ent짯ly ship짯ping in Ryzen desk짯top and mobi짯le pro짯ces짯sors, is in pro짯duc짯tion at both 14nm and 12nm, with 12nm samples now shipping.
    • The 쏾en 2 design is com짯ple짯te and will impro짯ve on the award-win짯ning 쏾en design in mul짯ti짯ple dimensions. 
    • AMD is on track to deli짯ver per짯for짯mance and per짯for짯mance-per-watt impro짯ve짯ments through 2020.
  • Gra짯phics Processors 
    • Expan짯ding  the 쏺ega pro짯duct fami짯ly in 2018 with the Rade짯on Vega Mobi짯le GPU for ultrath짯in notebooks.
    • The first 7nm AMD pro짯duct,  a Rade짯on 쏺ega based GPU built spe짯ci짯fi짯cal짯ly for machi짯ne lear짯ning applications. 
    • A pro짯duc짯tion-level machi짯ne lear짯ning soft짯ware envi짯ron짯ment with AMD셲 MIO짯pen libra짯ri짯es sup짯port짯ing com짯mon machi짯ne lear짯ning frame짯works like Ten짯sor짯Flow and Caf짯fe on the ROCm Open eCo짯sys짯tem plat짯form. The industry셲 first ful짯ly open hete짯ro짯ge짯neous soft짯ware envi짯ron짯ment, which is making it easier to pro짯gram using AMD GPUs for high per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯te and deep lear짯ning environments.

Client Compute Updates

AMD SVP and Gene짯ral Mana짯ger, Com짯pu짯ting and Gra짯phics Busi짯ness Group Jim Ander짯son detail짯ed upco짯ming AMD cli짯ent com짯pu짯te pro짯ces짯sors including:

  • The Ryzen꽓 desk짯top pro짯ces짯sor with Rade짯on꽓 graphics 
    • Desk짯top Ryzen꽓 APUs com짯bi짯ne the latest 쏾en core and AMD Rade짯on꽓 gra짯phics engi짯ne based on the advan짯ced 쏺ega archi짯tec짯tu짯re, bringing: 
      • The hig짯hest per짯for짯mance gra짯phics engi짯ne in a desk짯top pro짯ces짯sor1
      • Advan짯ced quad core per짯for짯mance with up to 8 pro짯ces짯sing threads
      • 1080p HD+ gam짯ing per짯for짯mance wit짯hout a dis짯crete gra짯phics card
      • Beau짯tiful dis짯play fea짯tures with Rade짯on꽓 Free짯Sync tech짯no짯lo짯gy2
      • Full bene짯fit of Rade짯on꽓 soft짯ware dri짯ver fea짯tures inclu짯ding Rade짯on꽓 Chill, Enhan짯ced Sync and Rade짯on꽓 ReLive
    • Plan짯ned to be available start짯ing Febru짯ary 12, 2018.
