AMD Gives Ryzen and Vega Details
Today at CES 2017, here in Las Vegas, we had the pleasure to stop by and talk with AMD. Stay tuned for some details regarding both Ryzen CPU’s and Vega GPU’s.
A few quick details we’ve been fortunate enough to learn about Ryzen. At launch there will be at least 50 motherboards available with a variety of chipsets. The highest chipset is the X370. It will be the only chipset supporting SLI and CrossFire X. For Ryzen, every CPU SKU will be unlocked but only only three chipsets will we be able to overclock. This is to limit issues with overclocking we saw on FX. There will also be a chipset, recently announced, targeted toward SFF motherboard. Expect to see mITX for Ryzen.
The AM4 platform has been designed to support both the Ryzen CPU and the upcoming next-gen APU. This is why you see display outputs on these motherboards. The top Ryzen CPU will be an 8 core and 16 thread processor with a minimum clockspeed of 3.4 GHz. The chipset has been designed to work very closely with the CPU itself, reducing traces and computational delays.
AMD has been working with 15 of the top cooler manufacturers to have adequate cooling options available for the enthusiast market at launch day. Their target is to stay on the AM4 socket through a minimum of year 2020 for people to be able to maximize their dollar.
