AMD Showcases its Ryzen CPUs Powering Their Upcoming Vega Architecture

At CES 2017, AMD set-up a demo room in which it showcased a PC powered by a Ryzen CPU and a Vega GPU playing Star Wars Battlefront at 60 FPS, reportedly at Ultra HD, with confirmed Ultra quality settings. Some sources do report that the frame rate at 4K Ultra settings occasionally dropped to 57 or 58 fps, but it still remains a strong showing from the company's upcoming Vega graphics architecture, as well as the prowess of its Ryzen CPUs.

demo schemo....

Unless/until it ships with performance and price that beats the crap outta Intel's chips, very few will even care, including me.

fingers crossed :twitch:

also seems rather silly to "showcase" their newest tech using a $5.00 keyboard & mouse combo :( but at least they used a decent monitor.

That's all the XBOX Project Scorpio money can buy after the T-Shirt were purchased and that $60 Corsair case.

I don't think the mouse or keyboard hampered performance that much.

No, but it certainly does not present an image of "latest & greatest" and definitely not one of an "Intel killer" imho

For not caring you sure seem to care about aesthetics. Just go with a Mac and you'll get all the shiny mice and keyboards you desire.

Absolutely comparable performance to Intel and nVidia there, so final prices and reviews are to give us a clear picture about the level of intense of the competition in CPU and GPU markets for 2017.

Yeah,....

I'm not going to judge them on their keyboard and mouse choices with respect to the demo setup.

The 4K ultra settings at quasi steady 60fps or above is what I am interested in hearing about. Well that and price. Still I'm not in the market for an upgrade so even if RyZen and Vega are good price / performance options I'm not ready to move on from my Intel / nVidia hardware.

There is hope that this is not a one-off. If it is representative of what either component can do, then AMD has two winners. I love seeing them competitive! Keeping my fingers crossed!

Looks like Xbox Scorpio will use Zen.

Can a 3.6Ghz CPU compete with a 4.5Ghz one? ;)

Even with different architectures.

Has anyome called Ryzen an Intel killer? That is how you get dissapointed.
