At the AMD presentation, the company revealed the coming of AMD Vega this June. Likewise, the roadmap unveiled a monster CPU, the Ryzen Threadripper.

CNET reported the latest presentation of AMD revealing its roadmap for its upcoming products. The presentation highlights the availability of the AMD Radeon Vega graphics card in late June.

The presentation was revealed through the effort of EPYC server architecture showing the datacenter technology. However, according to AMD's financial analyst, the Vega will not be released for everyone. Rumors claimed that the AMD Vega will follow Polaris' graphics processing architecture for it will be ship in late June.

Consequently, only high-profile product designers, immersion engineer and data scientist are those who will get the AMD Vega on its first release. But this statement is not yet confirmed, besides, AMD will just provide more details over the next few weeks before the company releases the AMD Vega totally.

Meanwhile, according to Ars Technica, aside from the AMD Vega, the company also unveiled the coming of a monster CPU, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper. The codenamed Threadripper has 16 cores and 32 threads.

Though the codename Threadripper is a weird name for an AMD Ryzen CPU, its name directly refers to its capability as a multicore processor monster. The good thing is, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper will be released this summer, while the company will reveal more details at Computex at the end of May.

Not only the AMD Vega and the AMD Ryzen Threadripper, reports claim that AMD will also unveil the company's first Ryzen APU (Accelerated Processing Unit). The Ryzen APU is based on Zen architecture with a pair four cores and eight threads along with the Vega-based GPU.

"50 percent increase in CPU performance, and more than 40 percent better graphics," AMD claims. All pertinent details on the AMD Vega, AMD Ryzen Threadripper and AMD Ryzen APU will be further noted at the Computex event in the second half of 2017.
