AMD reveals full line-up of Ryzen chips with integrated graphics

AMD reveals full line-up of Ryzen chips with integrated graphics

They also hinted at double digit performance gains, though they weren't exactly specific on any claims. According to AMD, these APUs will become available next month and is fully compatible with existing 3-series motherboards - after a BIOS update. Most of the improvements to the 400-series chipsets involve better memory support and greater scope for overclocking, at least from what AMD has said so far.

Advanced Micro Devices had a big comeback year in 2017 with the launch of its Ryzen processors and Vega graphics chips. Nevertheless, there are still many details regarding the Ryzen Desktop 2000 series are still under wraps at the moment which will only be revealed once we get closer to their launch this coming April.

The product line AMD was more willing to talk about is desktop Ryzen APUs, codenamed Raven Ridge.

Jim Anderson, head of the computing and graphics business group, said at the briefing that desktop Ryzen APUs combine Zen cores with advanced Vega GPUs. They do this while adding Vega graphics capability and matching or lower prices. The chip comes for $169 and is inclusive of 11 Vega compute units as well. Almost all of Intel's processors have integrated graphics, and though we might complain about the performance it provides in games, the truth is that the value of not needing another component is crucial for reducing costs.

The petitioners also argued that most nations have decriminalised homosexuality and India should not lag behind on the issue. A notice was issued to Union of India in 2002 and the Attorney General was asked to appear.

The Ryzen 3 2200G is better still value.

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. That is cheaper than the Ryzen 3 1200, but packs a faster CPU and integrated graphics as well. Ryzen 7 takes on Intel Core i7 and Ryzen 5 competes against Core i5, but what about the lower end of the CPU market?

AMD says it is reassuring its customers about Ryzen Pro reliability through several methods. And that's not to mention the Ryzen 5 2400G's lower total TDP of just 65W.

Intel finally released Coffee Lake, which brought more cores to its mainstream processor lineup for the first time in a decade.

In the days after, four more computers sporting different hardware and software were set the task of verifying the discovery. You can download a program to help you search for the next prime and there is even a small reward if you are the lucky one.

On top of this, AMD has announced a new box cooler, the Wraith Prism, which features a better fin profile for compact systems, direct copper heatpipe contact with the CPU, and a ton more RGB.

The pricing configuration gives AMD some impressive placement. The chips in the second-generation Ryzen, Ryzen Pro, and Threadripper lines to be released later this year will probably be priced comparably to the models they're replacing, but we don't have numbers yet. If these cuts haven't pushed through to retail just yet, they should be hopefully very soon.

Some Apple fans, like the good folks at iMore, would love to see AMD used in future Macs and yesterday AMD laid out their x86 roadmap and it was rather surprising. Both have 3.4GHz base speeds but the former can boost up to 2GHz while the latter can manage 2.5GHz under load. It also features a cut-down GPU, moving to six compute units from eight in the Ryzen 5 model.

In addition to the Acer, HP and Lenovo models announced previous year, AMD also released sneak peeks at upcoming Acer Nitro 5 variants with Ryzen CPUs and Radeon RX580 graphics, and Dell Inspiron 5000 series laptops with an optional discrete Radeon 530 discrete GPU.
