AMD CEO Confirms Ryzen And Vega Release Dates
It seems like the gaming giant, AMD, is absolutely pumped up for 2017. Apparently, the company has just confirmed specific release dates for the highly anticipated Ryzen CPUs and Vega GPUs.
Lisa Su, the Chief Executive Officer of AMD, finally confirmed that the new Ryzen processor will be released in early March, as what was expected. AMD Ryzen is expected to be released on or before March 3, 2017. Reports were buzzing that the release date will coincide with AMD's session named Optimizing for Ryzen CPU for the Game Developers Conference. The confirmation of the dates happened during AMD's fourth quarter earnings call, Tuesday afternoon.
"There will be widespread system availability from day one," said Su. Previously, the company experienced a few sales bumps because of the limited availability. Channel vendors will be the ones to get their hands on the first Ryzen chips and the system integrators. More traditional hardware sellers like Dell or HP will just have to wait for a little while.
Ryzen will be the company's betting chip to climb higher in the great race to the CPU throne. Su says that Ryzen will be going head-to-head with Intel's highest-end Core i5 and Core i7 processors. In the previous year, the company heavily relied on its GPUs for 60 percent of its revenues. CPUs and console hardware comprise 40 percent of the revenue.
The CEO also revealed that the AMD Vega GPUs will be arriving in the second quarter of 2017. Vega, which is rumored to have a June launch, is anticipated to surpass the powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080. Code named Naples, the server product based on Zen Architecture with 32 cores and threads was also revealed to be released some time in the second quarter while Zen-based APU with the code name, Raven Ridge, will also be launched in the second half of 2017.
