AMD Announces Computex 2018 Conference

AMD today started the formal invitation procedure for the company’s Computex 2018 presence, which should result in an updated state of affairs for the company as it aims to deliver its 2018 roadmap. You’d be forgiven to think AMD had exhausted its product portfolio for the year with its 12 nm Ryzen 2000 series, but the 2018 release schedule for AMD still counts some notable products.

Chief among these (for enthusiasts, at least) is the company’s second generation Threadripper lineup, which will update the company’s premium, many-core HEDT products to the current 12 nm process. However, the impact of AMD’s Pro products shouldn’t be underestimated – as tamer (in consumers’ eyes – as they are compared to the screaming wildcat that is a 16-core CPU, these products usually carry higher margins for AMD – the company just also has to count on proper volume being there, which, if AMD’s Zen architecture strength is anything to go by, really should keep gaining momentum. Of course, the real question on anyone’s minds now regards AMD’s RTG, and more precisely, what graphics technology advancements – and especially products – can be expected from the company. The 500 series (well, 400 series on steroids) is old in the tooth by now, and Vega is what it is. Here’s hoping the Computex conference will bring some light to these matters. The Press Release follows.

“Please join us at the AMD COMPUTEX 2018 press conference on June 6th starting at 10 a.m. at The Westin Taipei. We look forward to sharing updates on AMD products and technologies, presented by AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su, alongside other senior AMD executives and our partners.

Already in 2018, AMD delivered multiple new leadership products including 2nd generation AMD Ryzen desktop processors, generating significant customer and market enthusiasm. Ryzen and Radeon are again the brands to watch at COMPUTEX 2018, and we look forward to sharing new details with you at our press conference, showcasing AMD high performance leadership and innovation.” https://www.techpowerup.com/rss/news
