New AMD Ryzen PRO and AMD Athlon PRO powered commercial notebooks.
AMD today highlighted historic leaps in computing, gaming and visualization technologies expected in 2019 based on a combination of leading-edge 7nm technology and the most advanced computing and graphics designs the company has ever created. During her CES 2019 keynote presentation, AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su announced the world's first 7nm gaming graphics processing unit (GPU), AMD Radeon VII; detailed the world's fastest processor for ultrathin laptops, 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen Mobile processors and 3rd Gen Ryzne processors
Begun, the graphics card wars have.
Amazon Web Services will begin using AMD's processors
The process of AMD ramping up its EPYC efforts involves a lot of ?˜first-step' vendor interaction. Having been a very minor player for so long, all the big guns are taking it slowly with AMD's newest hardware in verifying whether it is suitable for their workloads and customers. The next company to tick that box is Oracle, who is announcing today that they will be putting bare metal EPYC instances available in its cloud offering.
AMD's steady climb in CPU market share thanks to its second-generation Ryzen processors is becoming even more apparent as we head into the closing months of 2018. We've been following this trend via sales data from Mindfactory (as compiled by Redditor Ingebor), which showed AMD with a 45 percent share in June, at parity with Intel in July, and slightly overtaking the company in August with a 51 percent share.
With the reveal of AMD's next-generation Zen 2 CPU core soon approaching, the latest rumors have revealed that Radeon Technologies Group already received one sample for optimizations. The rumor comes from a forum member at HardOCP who's known to have some reputation on the forums when it comes to AMD related leaks.

The 7th amendment to the WSA (Wafer Supply Agreement) could give AMD even more freedom to tap TSMC and Samsung for fabrication
This is the latest report from Jon Peddie Research on the GPUs used in PCs. It is reporting on the results of Q2'18 GPU shipments worldwide. Overall GPU shipments decreased -1.5% from last quarter, AMD decreased -12.3%, Nvidia decreased -7% and Intel, increased 3%.

AMD is expected to release its next-generation of high-end desktop (HEDT) Threadripper processors sometime between now and September, though nothing official has been announced. We must be getting close to a launch, however, as AMD's existing Threadripper CPUs are selling well below their launch MSRPs.
Intel's market leadership in the semiconductor industry may be at risk, according to Evercore ISI. The firm lowered its rating to in line from outperform for Intel shares, saying the search for the company's next CEO will add to investor uncertainty.
Thanks to a licensing deal with AMD and a complex joint-venture arrangement, the Chinese chip producer Chengdu Haiguang IC Design (Hygon) is now producing x86-based server processors that are largely indistinguishable from AMD's EPYC processors - so close in design that Linux kernel developers had to do little in the way of patching to support the new processor family, called "Dhyana." The server chips are being manufactured for domestic use only - part of an effort to break China's dependence on foreign technology companies.
Samsung reportedly sniffed around AMD and Nvidia as potential GPU suppliers, but nothing came of it. Now it may follow in the footsteps of Apple and have design the second major component of a chipset in-house.
Intel wants to compete with AMD's Radeon and Nvidia's GeForce products
Nvidia may not be talking about its GeForce Partner Program, but AMD has gone from silent to proactive in less than 24 hours. Hours ago Scott Herkelman, Corporate VP and General Manager of AMD Radeon Gaming, addressed AMD resellers via Twitter, not only acknowledging the anti-competitive tactics Nvidia has leveraged against them, but inviting others to share their stories.
These new laptops combine the processing power of Intel's Core processors with AMD's Vega graphics.
You may recall that Susquehanna chip analyst Christopher Rolland yesterday downgraded shares of Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) to "Negative" from Neutral, after concluding the stock is at risk from its reliance on blockchain and crypto-currencies for some large portion of its revenue. AMD today is refuting that contention.
Advanced Micro Devices, Intel's main rival in computer microprocessors, said a report earlier this month alleging that its chips have widespread, fundamental vulnerabilities greatly exaggerated the severity of the threat.
Just months after Meltdown and Spectre were disclosed to the public, security researchers have uncovered another set of critical processor vulnerabilities. This time Intel owners can breathe easy, these exploits are unique to AMD's processors, including its latest Ryzen chips.
Microsoft is adding support for AMD's FreeSync displays to its Xbox One X and Xbox One S consoles soon. The upcoming Xbox spring update already includes 1440p support on the Xbox One S and Xbox One X for monitors, but the addition of FreeSync will allow compatible displays to sync refresh rates with Microsoft's consoles.
HP let the cat out of its own bag with an update to its Warranty Support web pages, where it detailed 68 new AMD Ryzen/Vega-powered laptops. The leak comes shortly after Dell's announcement of new Ryzen/Vega laptops, and it almost makes one wonder if HP added the warranty support entries as a way to stoke the mobile AMD hype train. However, the company has yet to make any formal product announcements.

SK Hynix has just made their next generation GDDR6 memory available to customers which can include graphics card manufacturers such as Nvidia and AMD.
Christopher Rolland of Susquehanna today writes that chip makers Nvidia and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) probably had much better sales of graphics chips, or GPUs, than the companies predicted, last quarter, driven by their use in mining the Ethereum blockchain.
When Intel and AMD announced they'd be cooperating on a new CPU with an Intel processor paired with an AMD GPU, it was easy to see who the loser was going to be. Nvidia has a dominant overall position in the GPU market, including the types of all-in-one and small form factor systems that might opt for one of Intel's new CPUs with Radeon RX Vega graphics rather than an Intel CPU with Nvidia GPU. Now, there's hints that Nvidia is planning to respond with a new GPU iteration of its own: The GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q.
Microsoft has paused distributing its Meltdown and Spectre security updates for AMD machines after reports of PCs not booting. Microsoft's support forums have been full of complaints from PC owners with AMD processors, and the software giant has acknowledged the issues today. Microsoft is blaming AMD's documentation for the unexpected problems.
Intel and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) continue to respond to reports today of a chip flaw in Intel's parts that could pose security risks. To recap, an article overnight by The Register said the company has a flaw in its chips that it is working to address. The report pressured Intel shares today, even though Intel refuted what it called "inaccurate media reports."
AMD has had a fantastic past year. Its desktop-grade Ryzen microprocessors were successful in grabbing some x86 PC market share from Intel, which, in turn, nudged AMD back into profitability. And this might just be the start of the smaller chip-maker's newfound sales momentum. Advanced Micro Devices is readying up to launch a Ryzen Refresh line-up in the first quarter of 2018 on a slightly improved 12nm node.
AMD's Navi has been of interest to AMD fans since it first popped up on roadmaps, with hints of a next-generation memory subsystem and a "scalability" option that might be similar to the modular GPU designs that Nvidia is supposedly considering for its own products.
AMD announced it has landed Baidu as a customer and partner. It's a significant win for AMD; Baidu doesn't really have a US presence, but it controls 76% of the PC search market in China and 82% of the mobile and tablet markets.
Atari was set to kick off a crowdfunding campaign today on Indiegogo for its Ataribox, a PC tech-based game console powered by a custom AMD processor with Radeon graphics, running Linux. The company even sent out a reminder this past Monday, saying it will offer a limited number of discounted units when preorders go live. But then this morning Atari put the word out that it's delaying the launch. Why? That's a good question.
The SiSoftware database is revealing an entry of an AMD processor for which the GPU has 28 compute units and 2 GB of memory. The processor could be the desktop equivalent of Raven Ridge.
