The Ryzen processor chips will be launched by the middle of this year. Additionally, they will bolster Intel’s computer processors performance.
AMD can begin shipping its Radeon VII (seven) graphics chips, that contend with Nvidia’s gaming chips, from 7 February and therefore the next generation of EPYC server chips in mid-2019, Su said.
All the 3 chips support AMD’s new 7 nm producing technology . This technology packs additional transistors on smaller chips and boosts performance at lower power.
AMD last year mentioned that it might quit developing such advanced producing techniques. In turn they would join hands with suppliers like Taiwan Semiconductor manufacturing Co Ltd. It is an enterprise which analysts believe is creating 7nm chips for Apple.

AMD’s EPYC server chips and therefore the Ryzen processor chips support Zen a pair of design.
For Intel, which has featured production delays for its 10nm-based chips, this might mean a loss of market share to AMD, analysts have aforementioned.
Intel has aforesaid it expects to ship 10nm computer chips later this year and 10nm server chips early next year.
During the keynote, Su showed that Ryzen III consumed 30 % less power than Intel’s Core i9 processor chip.
Intel, the world’s biggest maker of computing chips for private computers and information centres, has been a frontrunner in manufacturing the tiniest chips up to now however recently lost its title to Taiwan Semiconductor.
Su also announced that Alphabet Inc’s Google was partnering to use AMD’s Radeon graphics chips on its recently declared game streaming service, Project Stream.
