So in the previous post there are some quotes and highlights from Lisa Su, CEO of AMD. She mentions a couple of interesting things, including some info about Radeon RX Vega.
For the Financial report Q1 highlights she mentions the following:
AMD's "Vega" GPU architecture is on track to launch in Q2, and has been designed from scratch to address the most data- and visually-intensive next-generation workloads with key architecture advancements including: a differentiated memory subsystem, next-generation geometry pipeline, new compute engine, and a new pixel engine.
There is more stuff mentioned that is intersting including some info on Project Scorpio:
Q1 2017 Highlights
- AMD launched its first high-performance x86 Ryzen desktop processor based on the entirely new "Zen" core microarchitecture, bringing leadership multi-core performance to PC gamers, creators, and hardware enthusiasts worldwide.
- AMD Ryzen 7: These 8-core, 16-thread processors bring innovation and choice back to the enthusiast PC market and include the world's highest performing, and lowest powered 8-core desktop PC processors.
