AMD's Radeon RX Vega graphics cards likely won't launch until August

In a demo at the Computex trade show in Taiwan, AMD executive Jim Anderson showed off the new flagship central processing unit (CPU), the Ryzen Threadripper. We have been told by AMD that the Threadripper CPUs will have a release date in Summer of this year with a more specific date following Computex.

In case you are wondering, this means that the AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics card will be released at the end of July.

Mobile Ryzen was capped off with ASUS' new Strix GL702ZC 8 core ROG gaming laptop.

Following the recent launches of seven AMD Ryzen desktop processors, including AMD Ryzen™ 7 and AMD Ryzen™ 5, created to bring innovation and competition back to the full spectrum of premium PC markets, AMD outlined continued momentum for Ryzen.

As expected, AMD dished more details on the forthcoming ThreadRipper lineup, which tops out with 16 cores and 32 threads.

AMD brought along its big guns to the Computex convention in Taipei with demonstrations of both its mighty 16-core Threadripper CPU, and no less than four Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics cards running in tandem.

Ryzen Mobile was also held up for everyone to see and used in a 2-in-1 convertible laptop. The company's previously-unveiled Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, meanwhile, has received an official launch date of June 27th.
