Peter Donnell / 10 months ago
Ryzen is big news right now. Not only has it been snapped up by consumers, it’s also of big interest to the OEM market and beyond. Intel has long dominated the system integrator market, but AMD is rapidly becoming a popular option. Here at Computex 2017, AMD revealed that they have all five of the biggest system integrator supporting Ryzen.
This is huge news for AMD, and great news for consumers. You can expect Ryzen CPUs to be featured in custom systems over the next few months and beyond.
30 Years of AMD in Taiwan
“We celebrate 30 years of AMD in Taiwan at Computex this year with great momentum around our new high-performance computing and graphics products,” said AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su. “At Computex we highlighted the next wave of AMD products that will come to market, including our upcoming EPYC family of processors for datacenters, high-end Radeon ‘Vega’-based graphics cards, and new AMD Ryzen Threadripper and Ryzen mobile processors. We were thrilled to be joined by customers and partners including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo to showcase their latest AMD Ryzen-powered PCs.”
Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, and Lenovo!
The new Dell Inspiron series looks great. With an all in one design, Infinite bezel design, Radeon RX580 graphics, Ryzen CPUs, and more; these are gorgeous and super sleek for the desktop.

What we Think
I’m excited to see such wide adoption of Ryzen. Sure, we don’t see our readers as the main market for this kind of pre-built system. However, it’s a big market, and we can see the appeal. This is great news for AMD, great news for consumers, as we now have more choice in that marker.
