AMD has unleashed so much this year: Ryzen, Ryzen Threadripper, Radeon RX 500 series and Radeon RX Vega series graphics cards, as well as a slew of Vega-based workstation/AI/datacenter level cards like Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, Radeon Instinct, and more.
Looking into 2018, we have Raven Ridge: AMD's new APU that should be an impressive release thanks to its 8 x Zen CPU cores and 11 x Vega CUs. Raven Ridge was initially promised for late 2017, but with AMD having issues getting enough Vega GPUs into graphics cards, I'm sure there has been a good reason for the delay into the New Year.
AMD will be launching Raven Ridge on the AM4 socket for the desktop, while notebook designs will feature the FP5 notebook socket. Inside, they'll both feature Zen CPU cores and Vega CUs. We don't know about performance, but I'd expect 1080p 60FPS with great power efficiency... anything less would be disappointing.
