AMD has officially confirmed its attendance at this year’s Computex technology show, promising to unveil “the latest products” for the second-half of 2017. The event, hosted by AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su, is on 31st May and may see the unveiling of Vega and Raven Ridge.
AMD’s Computex Press Conference
The event will take place on the second day of Computex 2017, which runs in Taipei from 30th May to 2nd June.
“Computex 2017 is fast approaching so we wanted to share a save-the-date for the AMD press conference, scheduled for May 31st from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m,” the company reveals (via VideoCardz). “Hosted by AMD CEO, Dr. Lisa Su and other key AMD executives, you will have the opportunity to hear more about the latest products and leading-edge technologies coming from AMD in 2017. The past year has seen AMD bringing innovation and competition back to the high-performance desktop market with the release of Ryzen™ processors and we look forward to providing new details on 2017 products and the ecosystems, both OEM and channel, that will support them.”
What to Expect from AMD at Computex
We know that Vega is set for a Q2 release, so its appearance at Computex is a no-brainer. Beyond that, we could see AMD’s 16-core Whitehaven CPUs, details of which leaked yesterday. It is possible that AMD’s Raven Ridge APUs, Zen 2, CPUs, and Navi GPUs could also make an appearance.
AMD has another event planned next week which may clue us into which products will make its Computex line-up. The Sunnyvale event – dubbed a “discussion” by AMD – will take place on 16th May.
