4096 Stream Processors and 8GB of HBM2 memory
An alleged SiSoft benchmark result leak that has been spotted recently has revealed a bit more information on what appears to be at least one version of the upcoming AMD Vega GPU.
Outspecing and outperforming $5000 CPU
AMD has given details of Naples and talked about its support at the Open Compute conference and it also shared a few performance numbers of a dual socket Naples with 64 core and 128 threes versus Intel’s latest dual socket Xeon E5-2699A.
As Fudzilla reported last year
This is one of these "we told you so" moments, as we've already written many details about AMD 32 core Naples server – a data center processor.
One to have for Ghost Recon: Wildlands
AMD has released its newest Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.3.1 driver which adds game day launch support for Ghost Recon: Wildlands as well as brings a couple of performance improvements and bug fixes.
But will it be too late?
Rumours are starting to come in that Nvidia’s coming Volta will give AMD's Radeon RX Vega a good kicking thanks to Taiwan Semiconductor’s 12 nm fabrication process over Vega's 14 nm.
In both the US, the UK and Europe
It seems that AMD's hard launch is paying off as the Ryzen 7 lineup has a "healthy availability" in major markets.
High end chipset in a small form-factor
Biostar has shown off what appears to be the first socket AM4 motherboard based on the mini-ITX form-factor and the high-end X370 chipset - the Biostar Racing X370-GTN.
The Flare X and Fortis series DDR4 memory
Following the launch of AMD's Zen-based Ryzen 7 CPUs, G.Skill has announced two new DDR4 memory series, designed and tested specifically for the AM4 socket platform, the G.Skill Flare X and Fortis DDR4 memory series.
Performance differences are more of a software issue
As the reviews of Ryzen came out, it is pretty clear that there are some test scenarios where Intel chips work slightly better, and AMD claims that is due to coding problems.
