AMD announces first Ryzen desktop chips with Vega graphics, teases future roadmap

AMD Introduces New Processors at CES

The design tweak also means that there might not be any major IPC or architecture modifications to expect on the new AMD Ryzen 2, but an updated SenseMI tech might be part of the upgrade. AMD is introducing the Ryzen 3 2200U and the Ryzen 3 2300U, which should appear in less expensive systems.

At CES 2018 in Las Vegas, AMD announced that it has lowered the recommended retail price for its higher-end processor range. Second-generation Ryzen CPUs on the 12nm production process will hit sometime around April.

Just as a fun fact, if you're trying to picture how tiny 12nm is, a typical human hair is around 7000nm thick.

AMD's new Ryzen 3 Mobile APUs launch on January 9th and we've already seen plenty of affordable laptops powered by these new chips at CES, stay tuned for our hands-on experiences with some of them. AMD has confirmed that this design is complete and says that it improves on Zen in "multiple dimensions".

The first big revision will be Zen 2 in 2019. Unlike Intel's Core i3, Ryzen 3 has no integrated GPU. Zen+ is built on 12nm and launches on April 18 alongside a new X470 chipset.

The new B450 and X470 are just part of a new breed of compatible chipsets that come with the added support for PCI-Express 3.0 for general goal lanes.

The beastly APUs are dubbed as the Ryzen Pro Mobile; this new APU is geared towards the progression of notebooks; according to AMD, they are looking give the traditional notebooks an enterprise-class feature and extends their reliability. Considering some of the early growing pains with the AM4 platform, the new chipset may help to further improve performance, stability, and features. Savings of up to 30% will be applied to the Ryzen 3, 5, 7, and Threadripper models, which should heat up the already-quite-hot CPU market. These primarily target ultraportable laptops with 15W TDP, packing up to 4-cores/8-threads and 10 Vega CUs. The Ryzen + Vega processor (single die implementation, to be clear) for desktop solutions will begin shipping February 12 and will bring high-performance integrated graphics to low cost PCs.

Next up is the Ryzen 5 2400G which is another quad-core chip with a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz and peaks out at 3.9 GHz under boost mode. AMD boasts that Ryzen Pro models with Vega integrated graphics cards will have more than twice the graphics power of eighth-generation Intel Core i7 mobile chips with integrated GPUs.

Finally, AMD hasn't forgot about corporate users. Plus there is going to advanced 7nm and 7nm+ based chips as well. A new Radeon Instinct MI25 accelerator for machine learning applications will be AMD's first 7nm chip.

AMD mentions new deep learning operations support for 7nm Vega, which could be something similar to Nvidia's Tensor Cores in GV100.

Meanwhile, Navi, the follow-on graphics architecture to Vega, will be produced with 7-nanometer circuitry, and AMD's follow-on "Next-Gen" graphics architecture is expected to go into production with a 7-nanometer-plus process. However, we may see a few new custom-cooled variants of Vega throughout the year. AMD intends to take its momentum from 2017 and carry that through 2018, with aggressive roadmaps and some interesting products. Either way the yearly cadence of releases means 15 months or so, something that looks very viable at this point.
