2017 was, until now, the year of AMDs Ryzen processors and it looks like this is not going to change in the forseeable future. It just recently came to light that the current consumer lineup isn’t finished yet and will be completed with “Threadripper” models sporting up to 16 cores (32 threads) which will compete against Intels x299 CPUs with up to 12 cores.
The new server CPUs, recently renamed from Naples to Epyx, are expected to appear this year too. As are the Ryzen models with integrated graphics.
But it looks like AMD is aiming to start the fight for market share on all fronts. The latest announcement came from ASUS and was surprising. Under the banner of their well know “Republic of Gamers” brand they announced a Ryzen powered gaming laptop. This alone is small sensation , seeing that all ROG laptops currently available exclusively use Intel CPUs..
More should be reveiled at Computex. It will be exciting to see what exactly has awakened.
