Computex 2018: 14-inch Huawei MateBook D Now Comes with AMD Ryzen

AMD Demos Beastly 32-Core 2nd Gen Threadripper, 7nm Vega With 32GB HBM2

AMD couldn't let Intel steal the Computex 2018 headlines with their powerful 28-core processor so it upped the ante with a 32-core Ryzen Threadripper.

On Monday, Intel, the dominant CPU maker in the worlds of desktop and server systems, touted an upcoming 28-core Core X-series aimed at workstations, gamers, and other high-end desktop gear.

When AMD first demoed Threadripper a year ago, keen-eyed enthusiasts soon realized the chip packed two "real" Zen die, with eight cores each, but also two "dummy" die that were simply meant to stabilize the overall package. Unfortunately for the enthusiasts among us, AMD designed the Instinct cards to capture some of the exploding AI and machine learning applications in the data center, but Su assured the crowd that the company plans to bring the new process to consumer GPUs in the future.

Fishermen attempted to rescue Docho, but they only managed to prevent the crocodile from taking his body with fishing nets . Crocodile attacks are common in Africa, the paper reported, with numerous victims being women washing clothes.


The Threadripper 2 will utilize AMD's proprietary Zeppelin 12nm dies, updated to meet the latest iteration of the Zen x86 architecture on display.

It will use AMD's 12nm process - so slightly larger than Intel's 10nm process for its latest chips - but will also boast multithreading. The company says second-gen Threadrippers will have up to 32 cores and 64 threads, and they'll drop into the existing TR4 socket on X399 motherboards. The world's first 7 nm GPU though, the Vega-based Radeon Instinct was also shown off to the crowd and it was announced it will be launched to server and workstation form factors 2H 2018.

"This is a heavy metal performance", said Jim Anderson, AMD's corporate vice president of the Computing and Graphics Business Group, summing up the performance of AMD's Threadripper 2, a year to the day after Anderson announced the first-generation Threadripper at Computex 2017. And AMD's just turned it up to 32. This card has been on show for nearly a year now, at various AMD press events, and has been a long time in the making - still, better late than never.

AMD also discussed where its graphics line is going in the future.

Luckily, Vega did appear briefly thanks to PowerColor, as the architecture received its first Nano variant.

AMD also announced a new 7nm EPYC processor codenamed "Rome" is in their labs and expected to start sampling to customers in the second half of this year.
