AMD Releases New Information On Ryzen And Vega Launch In Quarterly Report
AMD recently released the results of its last fiscal quarter of 2016 along with some new details regarding their upcoming Ryzen and Vega products.
Ryzen and Vega:
Both of these products will play a key role in determining AMD’s future and represent a substantial technical leap. Ryzen, the upcoming desktop processor, is based on AMD’s new architecture. The company hasn’t released a product based on entirely new architecture in five years so this is a big launch. Ryzen will launch in March of this year and will first be made available to retailers before being sent to OEMs. The company has said that they hope to have plenty of product on the shelves so, if you’re looking for one, you’ll probably be able to find it.
They didn’t announce a launch month for Vega, but did say it would be coming in Q2 of this year. The upcoming GPU is, like Ryzen, based off of brand new architecture. Most of AMD’s current line of GPUs have been based off the GCN architecture which is also five years old. The company released no new details regarding pricing or shipping details, but hopefully, they’ll ship enough to meet demands.
Fiscal Quarter #4:
Overall, this appeared to be a strong year for AMD. The company saw an increase in profits and total revenue along with a decrease in operating costs. For more information, you can see the official numbers from the report, below:
