3rd gen Ryzen coming mid-year
During its March 2019 investors call, AMD has released a fresh 2019 CPU roadmap confirming both that 3rd gen Ryzen desktop CPUs are scheduled for mid-year, as well as confirming that 3rd gen Ryzen Threadripper CPUs are coming.
Most without iGPU
During its CES 2019 keynote, Intel unveiled a total of seven new Coffee Lake CPUs, mostly which are a part of the new F-series, lacking iGPU.
Unlocked and ready for workstations
In addition to the 9th generation Core CPUs and the new 9th generation Core X-series CPUs, Intel has unveiled a rather interesting Xeon CPU, the Xeon W-3175X.
One to have for Threadripper 2 CPUs
Following the launch of AMD's 2nd generation Ryzen Threadripper CPUs, Cooler Master has announced its special edition Wraith Ripper tower CPU cooler, which can handle up to 250W of TDP.
Coming in the Q4 2018
Intel has pulled quite a rabbit out of its hat at the Computex 2018 press conference by unveiling and showing a running 28-core consumer CPU which should be available by the end of the year.
Fix will slow you down even more
Microsoft and Google are jointly disclosing a new CPU security vulnerability that's similar to the Meltdown and Spectre flaws that were revealed earlier this year.
Zen 3, Navi, and next-gen on track
In addition to revealing that Ryzen Threadripper 2000 series is now sampling, AMD has given a bit more information on its future CPU and GPU plans with fresh two new slides, confirming that both Vega and Zen 2 7nm designs are complete as well as that its future designs are on track.
Number of products in 2019
AMD was asked about its 7nm products and, as we reported last week, the 7nm GPU for AI has been taped out and apparently so is the 7nm server CPU.
Updated: Leaves Tesla to kick-start Chipzilla
Jim Keller, the former AMD chip executive behind the Zen roadmap, has left Tesla for Intel and joining fellow AMD refugee Raja Koduri to help Chipzilla sort out of its manufacturing stall of the last few years.
Not worth doing
One of AMD's recently released Ryzen 2000 series CPUs, codename Pinnacle Ridge, has had its top taken off by Der8auer showing that these are still soldered to the IHS and that such a process is simply not worth doing due to small temperature differences.
