    AMD Ryzen to be launched next month??

    Hmm:

    http://schedule.gdconf.com/session/o...esented-by-amd

    Join AMD Game Engineering team members for an introduction to the recently-launched AMD Ryzen CPU followed by advanced optimization topics. Learn about the Zen microarchitecture, power management, and CodeXL profiler. Gain insight into code optimization opportunities using hardware performance-monitoring counters. Examples may include assembly and C/C++.
    GDC starts in late February.

    Don't dissapoint us AMD!!

    Sadly I suspect that's just poor wording on the notice, and they mean "the recently announced Ryzen CPU". I'll keep my fingers crossed, but I'm not holding my breath

    The sooner AMD gets these out the better - Intel has Skylake X out at the end of the year,and there are other reasons(especially for UK based reviews) too.

    A50 is being triggered in March,and I expect it might lead to the value of the GBP and Euro to get worse against the USD. Now it might not happen,but it means there is a chance AMD will be competing in price with discounted Skylake and current Kaby Lake CPUs bought at the older exchange rates.

    Ryzen is already delayed from its late 2016 launch and AMD has a history of delays not helping their products at all,and sadly Europe is a big market for DIY computing products.

    Plus the longer they delay,the more chance it gives Intel a chance to pull Skylake X forward even for a paper launch.

    They need to launch at least one SKU next month to gain mindshare IMHO. Look at what Nvidia did with the GTX1070 and GTX1080,they released them even when they had not built up enough stock,especially when even the GDDR5X chips used had not even been listed on the site of the company which made them(!),but it gave them the PR victory of launching one month before AMD had anything out.

    Re: AMD Ryzen to be launched next month??

    I thought it was supposed to be this quarter ie 1st quarter 2017 or was that the new graphics card?
    there's a lot of stuff out of cex about them

    you don't have to worry about the GBP vs USD, the uk has all the aerospace like BAE Systems, lockheed, airbus, all the medical research centers, the biggest collection of chip makers outside of silicon valley, satellite factories that make all the EU satellite's and those are the home companies

    its not just all the banks and telecoms

    Re: AMD Ryzen to be launched next month??

    I don't really want to make this another Brexit thread,but the reason the £ is down is done to uncertainty of what is actually going to happen and even the Euro is also dipping too,due to the mixed signals from our politicians,and even if May says "hard Brexit" tomorrow,what is actually going to replace it,etc apart from some wishy-washy we will become a tax haven crap. We had a number of them say one thing before the referendum(EEC is great and we need it) to now changing their tune to say the opposite and that does not inspire confidence,and some of those largish companies like RR,etc really want proper clarification on whether they will be paying tariffs,etc when delivering engines to Airbus,etc.

    ATM,expect the £ and Euro value to fluctuate with every tidbit of info leaked during the negotiations and will only really stabilise once we know actually what the long- term plan is.

    I mean it is quite possible that Trump might do stuff which will tank the $ too,but unless the $ goes down in value,or maybe we will get some good news during the negotiations,but it is what it is.

    As usual AMD delaying Ryzen and Vega has meant its hit the worse time to actually release new hardware in Western Europe,which is not Christmas and is right about the time all of this actually starts getting serious. Unless AMD is super competitive in USD,both Intel and Nvidia will be kind of happy since all their older stock is going to have a slight advantage in £ and Euro pricing,and Europe is one of the biggest markets for PCs,especially the performance once overall IIRC.

    Unless Ryzen is a bit meh,I can't see AMD being massively lower in price - maybe against a Core i7 6900K,but I expect at the more sane level,but even if they price a 4C/8T CPU at £230 to £250 which is where K series 4C pricing is at,the problem is another 10% to 20% dip means Intel won't be much more expensive for its older stock.

    The other aspect is that there will be plenty of socket 1151 motherboards bought at better exchange rates too.

    The other issue is AM4 is not even out yet,which is pathetic - we should have AM4 out for retail by now with the lower end Bristol Ridge CPUs,so unless AMD has a Ryzen SKU for around £100,they have literally handed Intel the low end with the Pentium G4560 due to them delaying the platform.

    lockheed are british, martin is american, they merged, lockheed HQ is still in london, they are too american, that is why BAE Systems exist

    there are plenty of medical research centers, hundreds if you include universities, that do genetic's, DNA, stem cells, cancer drugs, and have all the global outbreak virus drugs like bird flu and ebola a few weeks after the outbreak happens

    chip makers like all the chip makers in bristol which make up the known uk's silicon valley

    there are a few space companies listed on http://spacecareers.uk/?p=search, there used to be a full list on http://www.ukspace.org/ which was around 40 companies
