AMD divulged that the ThreadRipper processors provide 64 lanes of PCIe 3.0, and we assume the company will dedicate four to the chipset. Also, you have to shell out $1,000 for the ten-core product to gain 44 lanes, while the rest of Intel's HEDT lineup is constrained to 16 and 28 lanes.

Chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) provided more details about its new high-end Ryzen desktop processor at Computex today, including demonstrations of some desktop systems from its OEM partners powered by the new chip. As we learned at the company's Financial Analyst Day recently, the Radeon RX Vega won't be the first Vega card to launch.

If mobile Ryzen performs as expected, ASUS will be responsible in part for catapulting AMD back into the mobile gaming spotlight with designs like the ROG Strix GL702ZC.

"HP is focused on delivering bold innovation in the gaming space, including virtual reality and eSports, with a portfolio that offers extreme performance and the best possible experience for all gamers", said Kevin Frost, vice president and general manager of consumer personal systems, HP Inc. AMD is now in the process of slowly releasing information about the chip to build up interest ahead of its launch - which, before you ask, hasn't been set yet and is still "this summer".

Wrapping up just a bit ago was AMD's annual Computex press conference. During the show, ASUS has unveiled the first AMD X399 motherboard which is compatible with the upcoming AMD Threadripper processors.

Virtual reality demands the latest technologies for realistic VR experiences and AMD announced that all Ryzen™ desktop processors are Oculus approved.

AMD officials also showed off the company's upcoming Ryzen-based mobile chip in what looked like a reference convertible laptop.

ASUS and AMD surprised the audience at Computex this week when they announced that the ROX Strix GL702ZC would not only include the choice of an 8-core Ryzen 7 1700, 6-core Ryzen 5 1600 or quad-core Ryzen 3 1200, but also bundles in the top-tier Radeon RX 580 based on 14nm Polaris.
