AMD is really working hard to retake some of its lost ground from Intel in the CPU game, and they’re not slowing down either.
This week, AMD have posted information and some details for several new SKUs within their Ryzen 2 product lines, as well as new Raven Ridge APUs, there’s even a new version of the Threadripper platform on the way.
The Ryzen 3 2100, 2300X, and Ryzen 5 2500X have been confirmed by AMD’s product portfolio. The two budget Ryzen 3 chips will join the already available Ryzen 3 2200G APU, and these new lines bring four core and four thread iterations to the product line, or at least that’s the hope. This would also bring more second-generation 12nm options to consumers.
Next up is a tease for a new line of Ryzen Mobile chips. Currently the only available mobile-focused CPUs in the line are the Ryzen 7 2700U and Ryzen 5 2500U. AMD could be looking to add the Ryzen 3 2200U, Ryzen 5 2600U, and Ryzen 7 2800U.
This new iteration of mobile-centric CPUs bring a new generation of graphical capabilities to mobile devices and ultrabooks. It’s possible that a Ryzen 7 2800U chip would feature a higher quantity of Vega CUs. These compute units when combined with a high number of GCN cores makes for the core graphical capability of the Ryzen mobile line. A new generation would certainly improve overall performance for devices with the new chips. Could we see a truly powerful and gaming-oriented ultrabook over the next couple of years?
And last, but probably most importantly, we have the new series 2000 Threadripper CPUs. Unsurprisingly, three SKUs have been leaked, the Threadripper 2950X, 2920X, and 2900X. These new offerings probably won’t have any new
No launch dates for all this PC hardware have been confirmed, but we might not have wait long to find out those kinds of details. Given the fact that Threadripper 2 chips should hit by the end of 2018, AMD might decide to release the next line of Ryzen chips around that time as well. We’ll just have to wait and see.
