Total hardware control
Earlier this week, there were some rumors that Apple will use its graphics IP to build the discrete graphics processors, probably starting with a notebook first, and we can assure you that these plans are real.
Launching later this year
In a message on her Twitter account, AMD's CEO Dr. Lisa Su confirmed once again that Zen 3 is on track and coming later this year.
3.8GHz base clock and a 4.5GHz max boost clock
AMD has launched its new Ryzen 3000XT series, including the Ryzen 5 3600XT which is a 6 core/12-thread processor, with a 3.8GHz base clock and a 4.5GHz max boost clock. The new chip provides a 100MHz increase over the 3600X.
Cheaper and better
The Ryzen 5 4600U-powered Envy costs hundreds of dollars less than the Core i7-1065G7 Spectre but runs longer and faster while being just as thin and light, according to a comparison run by Notebook Check.
AMD EPYC next gen High Performance computing servers
Super Micro said that the German Center for Scientific Computing (CSC) has chosen Supermicro’s 4U 8 GPU A+ server with PCI-E Gen 4 and 200Gb/s networking (AS -4124GS-TNR) as the foundation for their next generation of High-Performance Computing (HPC) servers.
Analysis: Interesting marketing that works
I have been around to vividly remember 350 nm and the first Pentium and AMD K5/K6 processors, and since that time, I have tracked the microprocessors and GPU market. It went swiftly from 350 to 250nm and later to 180, 130, 90, 65, 45, 32nm, and 14nm. It took some ten significant geometry shrinking and power reductions to get to 10nm and even to get to 7nm. Apple, in collaboration with TSMC, is just months away from announcing 5nm chips, but the real question is, do nanometers matter?
Including the seventh fastest supercomputer
AMD has announced multiple new high-performance computing wins for AMD EPYC processors, including the seventh fastest supercomputer in the world and four of the 50 highest-performance systems on the bi-annual TOP500 list.
VxRail systems hit the streets
Tin box shifter Dell has released two new VxRail systems and introduced AMD EPYC processors.
Coming in 2020
AMD has confirmed that earlier rumors are not true and that Zen 3 is still on track for 2020.
Matisse gets a frequency boost, B550 available, and more coming
In addition to launching its B550 chipset, AMD has officially announced three new Ryzen 3000 XT series CPUs, the 6-core Ryzen 5 3600XT, 8-core Ryzen 3800XT, and the 12-core Ryzen 9 3900XT, all of which will be available on July 7th, at least in some regions.
