AMD Reveals and Announces New Products Before CES 2018: APUs


In the second half of 2018, AMD will launch the second generations of Threadripper and Ryzen Pro CPUs.

Even as AMD seeks to put these new Ryzen and Vega chips in the laptops of consumers and corporate types, it also teased its next graphics architecture, called Navi, as well as second-generation Ryzen desktop and laptop chips. The existing X370 series motherboards is likely to support the 2nd generation Ryzen CPUs with BIOS updates from motherboard manufacturers but it is still not clear if there will be any performance benefits from the new 400-series chipsets. While the Ryzen CPUs were excellent at heavily-threaded workloads, they typically fell behind the competing Intel CPUs at single-threaded tasks. The desktop Ryzen APUs are to be available February 12. Many of these will be implemented in the second generation of Ryzen chips, which AMD is calling Ryzen Desktop 2000. It will run a base clock of 3.6GHz having a boost clock of 3.9GHz. Having that said AMD has introduced plenty of products in the CPU market that is very competitive as compared to what Intel has brought to the table lately.

The Ryzen 5 2400G is a four-core, eight-thread APU with a base clock of 3.6GHz and a boost clock of 3.9GHz; the Ryzen 3 2200G starts at 3.5GHz and boosts up to 3.7GHz, and has four cores and four threads.

That's all we have on 2nd-gen Ryzen right now, so clearly AMD will be releasing more information closer to its April 2018 launch date. Both APUs have a CTDP of 45-65 W. Among the many slides is one showing the 2400G surpassing the $199 Intel Core i5-8400 and matching the i5-8400 when combined with the $89 NVIDIA GT 1030 in 3DMark Time Spy. It sounds pretty odd that both these APUs are cheaper than existing Ryzen CPUs while offering more performance, but that's the situation.

Stepping up to the Ryzen 5 Pro, this is a quad-core (eight-thread) CPU clocked at up to 3.6GHz, with Vega Graphics offering eight graphics compute units and the same GPU clock speed as the Ryzen 3 Pro offering.

Apparently, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is looking to strike while the iron is hot, as the company is now taking advantage of the fact that Intel processors were recently under controversy and that the only fix reduces their advertised performance.

Here we are going to talk about all the reasons why you should seriously consider buying AMD over Intel the next time that you are in the market for a new CPU. From what we've heard, these new CPUs will be able to hit higher frequency clocks. However, the Vega Mobile GPUs, and machine learning-focused 7nm "Instinct Vega" GPUs certainly sound interesting.
