AMD's Ryzen Threadripper with 4 Radeon Vega GPUs runs Prey at 4K

Unfortunately, no details have been mentioned so far on pricing for the various Ryzen 3, 5, and 7 configuration options, though ASUS says the release window is planned for "later this summer".

'We celebrate 30 years of AMD in Taiwan at Computex this year with great momentum around our new high-performance computing and graphics products, ' enthused AMD president and chief executive Lisa Su following the company's keynote speech at the Computex tradeshow this week. Among them there is the ASUS ROG Strix GL702ZC, the first gaming laptop on the market to pack an AMD Ryzen processor. It's clear that the industry and consumers were hungry for the innovation Ryzen has brought back to the PC market.

Last night AMD held its conference at Computex, where it shared some of what we saw at the Financial Analyst Day earlier this month, but also some new information.

Angela Merkel says Europeans can't rely on the USA anymore
Merkel had described the climate change talks at the G7 meeting as "very hard , if not to say very dissatisfying". It's a vital alliance, and one with which Trump has decidedly cooler relations than many of his predecessors.

To demonstrate this connectivity, a quick demo was shown with a Threadripper system using not just two RX Vega GPUs to play Prey, but also show four Radeon Vega Frontier Edition GPUs being put to work in Blender with the Radeon ProRender plugin (similar in principle to NVIDIA's Iray system of iterative ray tracing). The first EPYC processor-based servers are scheduled to launch on June 20 2017, with widespread support expected from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and channel partners, ushering in a new era for high-performance server processors and the datacenter. Previous ROG gaming products based on AMD designs included Athlon 64 FX processors and were desktop models, until now. Siggraph runs through August 3rd, so I am not sure we are going to see that as a hard launch, but we can be hopeful. It will feature "up to" 16 cores and 32 threads, 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes, and quad channel DDR4 memory. Su's keynote didn't reveal any new details about the Radeon Vega line of GPUs, but did announce when PC gamers can look forward to AMD's official announcement of consumer-level Vega cards. For our audience, the main focuses would be on the Threadripper 16C/32T CPU and Radeon RX Vega GPUs, both of which were highlighted at the event. During the show, ASUS has unveiled the first AMD X399 motherboard which is compatible with the upcoming AMD Threadripper processors. The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics chip debuts on June 27.

Speaking of Vega, AMD announced that it would launch the new graphics cards at the end of July at Siggraph 2017.
