Sounds reassuring

AMD
According to latest rumors the yields manufacturing AMD Ryzen processors is reaching strong values and therefore good quality. As we already know, Ryzen is manufactured using the 14nm FinFet process. This technology has been used and refined for over a year now.

But just a soft-launch

AMD
During AMD's official Vega AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit, Raja Koduri has confirmed that RX Vega will be showcased at Computex. AMD has also confirmed that RX Vega will not be hitting the shelves during Computex time frame with the gaming oriented RX Vega still not having an official launch date.

Game optimizations

AMD
Following the launch of AMD’s ReLive 17.5.1 drivers there is already another update available. This release offers a 4.5% performance improvement in Prey with in combination with the Radeon RX 580. On top of that AMD has also fixed some issues related to Forza Horizon 3 and NieR Automata.

Together with TSMC and Globalfoundries

AMD
Judging by slides AMD’s CEO, Lisa Su, presented during their 2017 Financial Analyst Day, the company has aggressive plans advancing to 7nm manufacturing process technology. In this context it’s interesting to see that consumer and server CPUs as well as the graphics parts are to adopt the new process within the same time frame.

That was kind of expected

AMD
As we reported yesterday AMD is going to launch their first Vega based cards by the end of June for professional customers and the gaming are cards are to follow in the third quarter - hopefully. What’s not been covered so far is, that it looks like AMD is going to launch a water cooled version of their Vega cards for professionals.

New name for Naples based chips

AMD
During their Financial Analysts Day AMD gave insight on quite a few interesting things, such as revealing their new mobile chips as well as the Vega accelerator for professional users. Apart from that CEO Lisa Su has also revealed that AMD is getting rid of the Opteron brand and replaces it with Epyc.

By the end of June

AMD
Framed by AMD’s Financial Analysts Day, Raja Koduri has been talking about a future Vega card, which is slated for launch by the end of June. Unfortunately gamers will still have to wait until the third quarter, since the first card is going to address professional users.

During Financial Analyst Day 2017

AMD
During their Financial Analyst Day 2017, AMD announced the new Ryzen Mobile CPUs with an integrated Vega graphics unit. The combination of the two new architectures will make these APUs perform much better than the previous chips, while also energy efficiency is supposed to be better.

With a new HEDT platform

AMD
AMD has officially announced their new Ryzen Threadripper series of processors. This new series of CPUs will come with more cores than their Ryzen 7 lineup and will be based on a new AMD HEDT platform. Nevertheless, as for now it remains unknown when AMD is going to release these new processors.

By June 5th

AMD
Rumors, rumors and even more rumors; AMD could be working on three models on which there are basically no reliable information available so far. For starters AMD might introduce a standard Vega card, then a high-end air cooled model and also a watercooled one. In other words we might see something similar to the old AMD Fury series.

Up to 16GB of HBM2 memory

AMD
AMD’s RX Vega GPU has been spotted again. This time it’s been in the CompuBench database, showcasing new details like clock speeds and amount of memory. According to this latest rumor, AMD Vega will come with more VRAM than expected and some very high clock speeds. This new leak matches what was recently revealed in Linux DRM patches.

Up to 16 cores

AMD
The guys over at Wccftech have leaked the lineup of upcoming Ryzen 9 CPUs featuring models names and specifications including core/thread count, base frequency and even TDP. Nevertheless, as for now it remains unknown when AMD is going to release these new processors.

Even better than Sandy Bridge

AMD
We all know that AMD's mid-range Ryzen 5 CPU family is currently one of the best things you can buy if you’re on a tight budget. According to a news from 3DCenter, AMD's Ryzen 5 processors received some of the best user ratings since 2010.

Based on Zen architecture

AMD
According to another rumor which has its roots in the the SiSoft Sandra database yet again, AMD is busy working on the new generation of APUs with the codename "Raven Ridge". As detailed and rumored earlier, AMD's Raven Ridge APUs are expected to use Zen-based CPU architecture paired up with Vega-based GPU architecture.

Codename Whitehaven

AMD
There's not a day that we’re not talking about AMD Ryzen. According to a rumor that originated from the SiSoft Sandra database, AMD is already working on a new high-end Ryzen CPU with codename "Whitehaven". The new processor will come in variations with up to 16 cores and 32 threads and will support quad-channel DDR4 memory.

Shortage already?

AMD
According to a rumor from Tweaktown, AMD is fighting with shortage issues related to their RX Vega graphics cards already before launch. As claimed by an exclusive industry source, AMD might have only 16'000 RX Vega GPUs available at launch, suggesting that there will be a shortage of Vega graphics cards upon release.

As fast as AMD R9 Fury X

AMD
AMD’s RX Vega GPU has been spotted in the Futuremark database, showcasing performance that is similar to AMD's R9 Fury X, which would mean that the upcoming AMD flagship graphics card won’t be capable of competing with NVIDIA’s high-end models. However, the results posted in the Futuremark database shows that AMD could introduce three new models based on Vega architecture. All the scores have been gathered using a Ryzen 7 1800X processor.

With 1800R curvature

AMD
Acer has expanded its monitor lineup with another ultra wide model, featuring a 35-inch VA panel with 3440 x 1440 resolution. The grey-to-grey response time is set to 4ms and the refresh rate is up to 100Hz. Apart from that this monitor supports G-Sync.

Improves memory compatibility

AMD
AMD has released new AGESA Microcode for their Ryzen CPUs which should further improve memory compatibility on their AM4 platform. According to a Gigabyte employee, the new microcode should enhance memory compatibility in combination with high clocked memory, adding support to 20 different high-end memory kits.

Performance improvements for Prey

AMD
Following the launch of AMD’s ReLive 17.4.3 drivers there is already a new update available. This release offers a 4.7% performance improvement in Prey and a multi-GPU profile for the game. On top of that AMD has also fixed some issues related to Forza Horizon 3 and Civilization VI.
