AMD teases third-gen Ryzen processor performance ahead of mid-2019 launch

Closing out its keynote at CES 2019, AMD has shown off a pre-production 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen CPU using the Zen 2 x86 architecture and built on 7nm, demonstrating its ability to outperform the Intel Core i9-9900K while using roughly 30 percent less power.

The new Radeon VII will start shipping on February 7 this year, with a sticker price of $699 - equivalent to a reference-clocked RTX 2080 - with that massive 16GB of high-bandwidth memory likely taking up a huge amount of the cost of the card.

But as his health declined previous year , Lutes chose to sell the coin, said Peter Karpenski, a friend and fellow coin collector. Those planchets went unnoticed when the bins were refilled with zinc-coated steel planchets in 1943, Heritage Auctions said.


NVIDIA had its own big CES 2019 press conference a few days ago where it made the GeForce RTX 2060 graphcis card official, while it was AMD's turn yesterday with their CES 2019 presser and the unveiling of the new Radeon VII graphics card. The GPU features 60 compute units and AMD claims that it offers a 25 percent uplift in performance compared to the Radeon Vega 64 at the same power level.

"It provides seamless, high-refresh gaming at 1080p, ultrawide 1440p, and 4K". Nvidia's Turing cores are also manufactured on a 12nm process, so when they do move to 7nm you can expect a performance increase along with better thermals.

North West Education MEC Sello Lehare says the school's explanation is that the children were separated on the basis of language. On Thursday, the department announced that the teacher had been suspended, pending the outcomes of the investigations.


Compared to the Radeon RX Vega 64, for instance, the double-width card will push Battlefield V's DX12 performance up by 35-percent. It also delivers up to 25 percent higher performance in the widely popular esports title, Fortnite.

AMD has won the race to get their first gaming-centric consumer GPU to market. That means AMD Radeon FreeSync, AMD FreeSync 2 HDR, along with a 4,096-bit memory interface. Its flagship GPU, the Radeon VII is designed for 4K gaming and virtual reality. Gamers can effortlessly capture, stream and share their memorable moments and clutch victories with Radeon ReLive; monitor performance and PC system info, and socialize with the AMD Link application; and fine-tune a range of settings to fit their needs with RadeonWattMan technology.
