AMD also demonstrated the CPU running the new Bethesda game Prey on "ultra" settings at 4k resolution with twin Radeon RX Vega graphics cards, and revealed plans to launch that in late July.

Despite the earlier announcements, AMD still managed to break some news at Computex. With as many as 32 threads in action under Threadripper though, the demo took less than 10 seconds to complete, showing that the multithreaded support with the new AMD hardware is nearly unpararrelled.

Apart from doubling core number of the Ryzen 7, it has been learned that the Ryzen Threadripper will be supported by four slots of DDR4 random access memory (RAM) that will be evenly distributed across each of the units within the processor. The first EPYC processor-based servers are scheduled to launch on June 20 2017, with widespread support expected from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and channel partners, ushering in a new era for high-performance server processors and the datacenter.

For server customers, AMD promised that the first off-the-shelf machines featuring its Epyc processors in single- and dual-socket configurations would be hitting the market on June 20th. Talking about AMD Threadripper, the system comes in ranges of 10, 12, 14 and 16-core desktop processors.

In the same statement , he declared 35 Russian intelligence agents "persona non grata", forcing them to leave the U.S. The Trump administration may return two Russian compounds in NY and Maryland, according to a new report.

The Ryzen 9 1998X will form part of AMD's high-end desktop X399 platform, which the company also showed off today. There was one piece of information announced; Vega GPUs will be launched at the LA Siggraph event which runs across 30 July to 3 August. It would be an understatement to say that these CPUs have been getting a lot of attention and the AMD Ryzen CPU also managed to bag a couple of European Hardware Awards this year. That being said, AMD hasn't forgotten about PC gamers, and is working to bring Vega to consumers in the near future.

AMD's server segment was brief, reaffirming what we already knew about its EPYC product line of 32-core CPUs that we expect to launch in the coming months. At Computex 2017, AMD delivered several Ryzen Threadripper and Radeon Vega demonstrations.

As far as the pricing and processing frequencies of these processors are concerned, AMD didn't announce them. "Our message is that for the true enthusiast-class performance capability this combination will be an incredible combination", said Su. AMD showed demos of Ryzen-based desktops on stage.

AMD also took advantage of Computex to draw attention to its VR (virtual reality) bona fides. As we learned at the company's Financial Analyst Day recently, the Radeon RX Vega won't be the first Vega card to launch.
