AMD’s 2017 Product Roadmap Threatens Intel, Nvidia

17-part article, 100% details:

http://marketrealist.com/2017/04/wha...yzen-7-series/

AMD is launching three series of Ryzen CPUs for high-end, mid-end, and low-end desktops and notebooks:

High-end Ryzen 7 desktop processors built on AM4 X370 motherboards were launched on March 2, 2017. This series includes three processors priced between $329–$499 that compete with Intel’s i7 Broadwell processors priced between $349–$1,050.
Mid-end Ryzen 5 desktop processors built on AM4 B350 motherboards were launched on April 11, 2017. This series includes four processors priced between $169–$249 that compete with Intel’s i5 Kaby Lake processors priced between $168–$242.
Low-end Ryzen 3 desktop processors built on AM4 A320 motherboards would be launched later in 2017. The series is expected to be priced below $169 and would compete with Intel’s budget offerings.


Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) expects to launch the notebook versions of these three CPUs in 2H17.


Advanced Micro Devices is set to compete with Nvidia with its new Vega GPU, which is due to launch by the end of 2Q17. The Vega architecture would be more powerful than AMD’s Polaris architecture, coupled with its LiquidVR (virtual reality) technology, and Nvidia’s Pascal architecture.

Regardless of how many Vega versions AMD launches, we believe that one thing is certain—this GPU would put the company ahead of its rival Nvidia and help it regain its platform leadership. We’ll explore this in the next article.

Threatened by the Vega GPU, Nvidia recently launched an upgrade to its GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. The Pascal-based Titan XP has higher clock speeds and memory and is priced at $1,200. This new GPU has changed Nvidia’s GPU roadmap. Nvidia has already launched GeForce GTX Titan X (Maxwell) and Titan X (Pascal). The Titan XP (Pascal) is the second Titan GPU based on Pascal architecture.
This new GPU at such a high price point would not be able to compete with AMD’s Vega GPU, which would be launched at a slightly lower price point.

AMD is expected to first launch Raven Ridge APUs for laptops and notebooks in 2H17 for ~$250. This would be followed by Raven Ridge APUs for desktops in 2018.
Apple (AAPL) currently sources all its CPUs for iMacs and MacBooks from Intel (INTC). There are rumors that Apple may switch or second-source the processors for its MacBook from AMD. Many analysts believe that Raven Ridge is an ideal APU for Apple’s lightweight MacAir notebooks.

AMD needs to start selling their own AMD brand notebooks with their own CPUs, GPUs, APUs, RAM, SSDs, etc. They have all the infrastructure and capabilities for this new business for them.

In this way they will directly hit Intel and Nvidia, and once and for all will solve the problem with the reliability of "partners" in the likes of Acer, Toshiba, HP, Dell, Asus...

I will be happy to buy such a laptop with a 17" display, 4K, Ryzen 5/7, 8/12/16GB RAM, Polaris/Vega, etc...

Partly, they are in red exactly because of the lack of proactive solutions on the "partners problem".

They can always begin the business as a start-up, there are many sources from where they can get the money, if they don't have. But I think AMD right now has quite a satisfactory amount of available cash to do this.

I'd think it wouldn't be too hard to go to Clevo and ask for a barebone design that can be customized with a few components: CPU, GPU, RAM, SSD. It would be like a Sager or a Schenker with custom AMD and Radeon branding.

Aye.

AMD needs to partner hard with one boutique to start.

Offer an all-AMD laptop. Sell parts at cost to this one Boutique (either directly, or with paying for marketing for those notebooks) for the first generation or two.

Sales will certainly be large enough to catch the attention of at least 1-2 other boutique.

It might be easier to just have a "white line reference" all developed in house laptop that could be branded for distribution, like the ALDI's Medion
