New Genera­ti­on of Ryzen CPUs, New Ryzen APUs, New Rade­on Vega Mobi­le GPUs Com­ing in 2018

Las Vegas – 2018 CES 1/7/2018

Buil­ding on the glo­bal enthu­si­asm gene­ra­ted in 2017 by Ryzen™ pro­ces­sors and Rade­on™ gra­phics tech­no­lo­gy, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today detail­ed its forth­co­m­ing roll-out plan for its new and next genera­ti­on of high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting and gra­phics pro­duc­ts during an event in Las Vegas just pri­or to the ope­ning of CES 2018. Along­si­de announ­cing the first desk­top Ryzen™ pro­ces­sors with built-in Rade­on™ Vega Gra­phics, AMD also detail­ed the full line up of Ryzen™ mobi­le APUs inclu­ding the new Ryzen™ PRO and Ryzen™ 3 models, and pro­vi­ded a first look at the per­for­mance of its upco­m­ing 12nm 2nd genera­ti­on Ryzen™ desk­top CPU expec­ted to launch in April. In gra­phics, AMD announ­ced the expan­si­on of the “Vega” fami­ly with Rade­on Vega Mobi­le and that its first 7nm pro­duct is plan­ned to be a Rade­on “Vega” GPU spe­ci­fi­cal­ly built for machi­ne lear­ning app­li­ca­ti­ons.

We suc­cess­ful­ly accom­plished the ambi­tious goals we set for our­sel­ves in 2017, ree­sta­b­li­shing AMD as a high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting lea­der with the intro­duc­tion and ramp of 10 dif­fe­rent pro­duct fami­lies,” said AMD Pre­si­dent and CEO Dr. Lisa Su. “We are buil­ding on this momen­tum in 2018 as we make our stron­gest pro­duct port­fo­lio of the last deca­de even stron­ger with new CPUs and GPUs that bring more fea­tures and more per­for­mance to a broad set of mar­kets.”  

Technology Updates

AMD CTO and SVP Mark Paper­mas­ter sha­red updates on AMD’s pro­cess tech­no­lo­gy road­maps for both x86 pro­ces­sors and gra­phics archi­tec­tures.

  • x86 Pro­ces­sors
    • The “Zen” core, cur­r­ent­ly ship­ping in Ryzen desk­top and mobi­le pro­ces­sors, is in pro­duc­tion at both 14nm and 12nm, with 12nm sam­ples now ship­ping.
    • The “Zen 2” design is com­ple­te and will impro­ve on the award-win­ning “Zen” design in mul­ti­ple dimen­si­ons.  
    • AMD is on track to deli­ver per­for­mance and per­for­mance-per-watt impro­ve­ments through 2020.
  • Gra­phics Pro­ces­sors
    • Expan­ding  the “Vega” pro­duct fami­ly in 2018 with the Rade­on Vega Mobi­le GPU for ultrat­h­in note­books.
    • The first 7nm AMD pro­duct,  a Rade­on “Vega” based GPU built spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for machi­ne lear­ning app­li­ca­ti­ons. 
    • A pro­duc­tion-level machi­ne lear­ning soft­ware envi­ron­ment with AMD’s MIO­pen libra­ries sup­por­ting com­mon machi­ne lear­ning frame­works like Ten­sor­Flow and Caf­fe on the ROCm Open eCo­sys­tem plat­form. The industry’s first ful­ly open hete­ro­ge­ne­ous soft­ware envi­ron­ment, which is making it easier to pro­gram using AMD GPUs for high per­for­mance com­pu­te and deep lear­ning envi­ron­ments.

Client Compute Updates

AMD SVP and Gene­ral Mana­ger, Com­pu­ting and Gra­phics Busi­ness Group Jim Ander­son detail­ed upco­m­ing AMD cli­ent com­pu­te pro­ces­sors inclu­ding:

  • The Ryzen™ desk­top pro­ces­sor with Rade­on™ gra­phics
    • Desk­top Ryzen™ APUs com­bi­ne the latest “Zen” core and AMD Rade­on™ gra­phics engi­ne based on the advan­ced “Vega” archi­tec­tu­re, brin­ging:
      • The hig­hest per­for­mance gra­phics engi­ne in a desk­top pro­ces­sor1
      • Advan­ced quad core per­for­mance with up to 8 pro­ces­sing threads
      • 1080p HD+ gaming per­for­mance wit­hout a dis­cre­te gra­phics card
      • Beau­ti­ful dis­play fea­tures with Rade­on™ Free­Sync tech­no­lo­gy2
      • Full bene­fit of Rade­on™ soft­ware dri­ver fea­tures inclu­ding Rade­on™ Chill, Enhan­ced Sync and Rade­on™ ReLi­ve
    • Plan­ned to be avail­ab­le star­ting Febru­a­ry 12, 2018.

Gra­phics & Gaming Updates

AMD dis­cus­sed its first mobi­le dis­cre­te gra­phics solu­ti­on based on the “Vega” archi­tec­tu­re. This razor-thin Rade­on Vega Mobi­le GPU is desi­gned to enab­le new, power­ful gaming note­books in 2018 with extra­or­di­na­ry per­for­mance and incredi­ble effi­ci­en­cy.

AMD also announ­ced that Rade­on™ Soft­ware will add sup­port for HDMI 2.1 Varia­ble Refresh Rate (VRR) tech­no­lo­gy on Rade­on™ RX pro­duc­ts in an upco­m­ing dri­ver release. This sup­port will come as an addi­ti­on to the Rade­on™ Free­Sync tech­no­lo­gy umbrel­la, as dis­plays with HDMI 2.1 VRR sup­port reach mar­ket.

Ubi­soft announ­ced that Far Cry 5 will sup­port Rade­on™ RX Vega spe­ci­fic fea­tures like Rapid Packed Math as well as Rade­on™ Free­Sync 2 tech­no­lo­gy. Rade­on RX Vega owners will be able to enjoy Far Cry 5 at excep­tio­nal fide­li­ty, with stun­ning frame rates and beau­ti­ful image qua­li­ty.
