    AMD EPYC server CPUs to arrive from 20th June

    And we see the first demos of a Ryzen Mobile APU in an ultraportable design.
    Read more.

    AMD finally admitting instead of covering up that Ryzen still trails Intel slightly in gaming? :-o

    AMD have never, to my knowledge, claimed that Ryzen is faster than Kaby Lake in gaming. They've not made a big deal of the fact, but then you wouldn't expect them to. They've emphasised instead how close to parity they are when the resolution and IQ are turned up (in other words, when the GPU is the limiting factor).

    That's pretty much a direct personal attack. Knock it off if you want to keep using these forums.

    If you have a point to make do it without using offensive language and without attacking other members.

    Apparently AMD forgot how to spell "EPIC".

    To be honest, it sounds more like a badly named gaming brand rather than a good name for server CPUs. I think they should have just continued to call it Naples.

    The guy holding "Threadripper" (and please tell me they're not going to sell it under that name) either has seriously small hands or is holding an equally seriously large chip.

    FWIW I more and more can see an AMD solution as my next build. Thank you, AMD, for finally picking up the gauntlet and slapping Intel's face with it.

    While they've never directly claimed as much, they were trying very hard to imply it in pre-release demos. Often they would compare Broadwell 6/8 core machines vs. Ryzen in a game with no numbers or benchmarks on screen immediately followed by some multithreaded benchmark where Zen beats Broadwell by a mile.

    This is the first time they've actually shown hard numbers on gaming performance.
