AMD has announced that its latest Ryzen Pro with Radeon Graphics processors are now available for the world's largest OEMs like Dell, HP and Lenovo.

Compatible with Windows 10 April 2018

The Windows update is official out and it doesn't bring huge changes from the previous version, so your old Radeon driver might still work. However with the Radeon Software 18.4.1, AMD improves performance once again.

As fast as GTX 1080

AMD's RX Vega 20 GPU has been spotted in the Futuremark database, showcasing performance that is similar to NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080, which would mean that the upcoming AMD flagship graphics card won't be capable of competing with NVIDIA's absolute high-end models. The card is clearly an engineering sample running on early drivers and we expect to see more performance soon.

Three Threadripper processors as well

Videocardz has come across an interesting document on the AMD official site. The document, that is still online, unveils several SKU codes for all active and pending processors. According to the table, we might see soon more Zen+ Ryzen processors as well as more Threadripper CPUs.

New record from der8auer

We have covered der8auer breaking records in the past and apparently the German overclocker Roman Hartung did it again. This time he has pushed a new AMD Ryzen 7 2700X CPU to 6 GHz using an ASUS Crosshair VII Hero motherboard and liquid nitrogen cooling. This overclock was achieved with a bus speed of 100.16 MHz and a multiplier of 59.75.

Ultra high-end AM4 chip?

As you might know, Intel aims to create high-end motherboards using their planned Z390 chipset. This upgraded version of the current Z370-offering expands the chipset by integrated AC-WLAN, USB 3.1 ports and several other features. It looks like, that like with the previous generation of chipsets, AMD will add a chipset with a name rather close to Intel's series.

Four models available

During the weekend, AMD has announced four Ryzen processors aimed for mainstream and performance PCs. The lineup includes the Ryzen 7 2700X, Ryzen 7 2700, Ryzen 5 2600X and Ryzen 5 2600. All the four CPUs will be available next April 19. During the next weeks, we will test them as well.

Ryzen 7 2600X spotted too

Videocardz has spotted a couple of overclocking scores published on the CPU-Z database of two upcoming Ryzen 2000 CPU series. Although the frequency is rather high on both CPUs, the scores aren't close enough to the current world record. At the moment the highest clock achieved and verified by HWBot is 5.9GHz on Ryzen 5 1600X from der8auer.

GTX 1080 performance for $250

AMD's next generation mainstream Navi GPU might hit NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 and AMD RX Vega 64 class performance and replace the company's current RX 580. AMD is going to release this card during next year with a price around 250 Dollar.
