    ASUS Announces Support for AMD Ryzen Desktop Processors with Radeon Vega
    By btarunr Friday, February 9th 2018 02:00
    https://www.techpowerup.com/241386/...amd-ryzen-desktop-processors-with-radeon-vega

    "ASUS today announced that its complete lineup of AM4-socket-based motherboards now offer support for the first Zen architecture-based AMD Ryzen desktop processors with Radeon Vega graphics Accelerated Processing Units (APUs), via a BIOS update that's available immediately. These all-new AMD Ryzen 2000 Series APUs combine up to four Zen-based CPU cores with integrated Radeon Vega graphics. When used in combination with ASUS AMD AM4 Series motherboards, AMD Ryzen 2000 Series APUs offer great-value performance and deliver best-in-class gaming and graphics experiences.

    Existing owners of ASUS AM4-socket motherboards can update their systems quickly and easily with the intuitive ASUS USB BIOS Flashback or ASUS EZ Flash 3 tools. In addition, an updated graphics driver - available from the ASUS support website - pushes the integrated AMD Radeon graphics to new performance heights for best-ever visual and gaming experiences with AMD Ryzen 2000 Series APUs.

    Quick-and-easy BIOS update delivers instant compatibility with AMD Ryzen 2000 Series APUs
    Updating an ASUS AM4-socket-based motherboard for compatibility with the latest AMD Ryzen 2000 Series APUs takes just moments, via one of two simple methods.

    With the ASUS-exclusive USB BIOS Flashback feature built in to many ASUS motherboards, users only need to download the latest UEFI BIOS to a USB flash drive, connect the motherboard's power supply, insert a FAT32-formatted USB drive, and then press the motherboard's USB BIOS Flashback or Reset button. No AM4 processor or memory modules need to be in place, and the update will complete in a few moments.

    Alternatively, users may update via the EZ Flash 3 utility that's integrated with the ASUS UEFI BIOS. This tool allows the update to be applied via an inserted USB drive or downloaded directly from the internet.

    Users are also advised to update to the newest Radeon Vega drivers (V23.20.817.0 or later) to enjoy the best-possible graphics performance. These drivers are available for download from the ASUS microsite, at this page.

    This ASUS BIOS update is available immediately worldwide. Please contact your local ASUS representative for further information."

    AMD Ryzen "Raven Ridge" Comes with a Limited PCIe Interface-Techpowerup.com

    AMD today launched its first desktop Ryzen "Raven Ridge"
    APUs that combine quad-core "Zen" CPUs with "Vega" based integrated graphics solutions. One of its key specifications that caught our eye is its PCI-Express interface. Apparently, these chips feature just 8 PCI-Express gen 3.0 lanes for discrete graphics, besides 4 lanes dedicated as the chipset-bus, and 4 other lanes driving a 32 Gbps M.2 NVMe slot. What this means for the end-users, is that any discrete graphics cards plugged into the PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot will run at half the bandwidth - PCI-Express 3.0 x8.

    AMD responded to our story in advance with this statement:
    "The target market for Raven Ridge, PC builders or DIYers who value the presence of SoC graphics, will select B350 or A320 motherboards, which do not feature the ability to split PCIe lanes. X370 buyers are typically buying the high end Ryzen, such as Ryzen 5 6-core and Ryzen 7 8-core, to go with that class and price motherboard. For the majority of the market, upgrading from the class leading processor graphics inside the Ryzen 5 2400G or Ryzen 3 2200G to a single discrete GPU will be more than enough, given then performance on offer today from discrete graphics cards such as Radeon RX VEGA64 and Radeon RX 580."

    Yeah, there are a lot of unknowns, but it looks mighty impressive when you take into account the current gap or rather abyss in performance. Hopefully it scales well. After all it shows comparable performance at less power consumption, so I really hope that it would directly translate into overclockability

    What I really do not like is the fact that metal on the IHS has been abandoned.

    I'm pretty sure that it's only for these budget 1 CCX models.

    Introducing AMD Ryzen™ Desktop Processors with Radeon™ Vega Graphics: The Next Step in Computing
    https://www.amd.com/en/partner/amd-ryzen-with-radeon-vega

    "2018 is shaping up to be a great year for AMD. At CES, exciting announcements were made about AMD’s next twelve months, and the first release of the year is here: AMD Ryzen desktop processors with built-in Radeon Vega graphics.
    Combining the power of the advanced AMD Ryzen™ processor with powerful Radeon™ graphics technology, AMD is unleashing a new product that delivers advanced, high performance processing featuring the most powerful graphics you can get on a desktop processor.*1

    AMD Ryzen with Radeon Vega Graphics: An Evolution of Ryzen™
    The new Ryzen™ processor with Radeon™ graphics improves on recent technologies to deliver increased base and boost frequencies, enhanced memory and cache latencies and faster memory support over the previous generation. There are also on-board advancements such as Precision Boost 2 for an improved multi-core boost.

    The first desktop processor with 2 teraFLOPS of combined graphics and CPU power, this latest Ryzen™ processor offers an incredible platform for CPU dependent-tasks as well as enabling responsive, smooth gaming at full HD 1080p, in eSports and beyond.

    Ryzen desktop processors with Radeon Vega graphics fit perfectly into existing socket AM4 motherboards, but may require a simple BIOS upgrade.. If you’re buying a new motherboard, simply look for the “AMD Ryzen Desktop 2000 Ready” sticker on packaging for drop-in support.

    The ecosystem that AMD and its motherboard partners have built is perfect for both new and current customers who want a best-in-class graphics solution built-in to a powerful, advanced desktop processor.1

    Ryzen™ processors with Radeon™ Vega graphics also offer new 33MHz dividers for true DDR4-3000 support, delivering more precise memory tunability for customers who need to squeeze as much performance out of their system as possible.2

    AMD Ryzen™ Desktop Processors with Radeon™ Vega Graphics: For the Most Powerful Graphics Performance you can get on a Desktop Processor
    Ryzen™ desktop processors with Radeon™ Vega graphics offers an all-in-one solution that delivers incredible power from one chip, which means customers don’t need separate processors and graphics cards; perfect for customers who appreciate high performance, and for those who use small form-factor desktops.

    With 4 cores and up to 8 processing threads, Ryzen™ processors with Radeon™ Vega graphics deliver powerful multiprocessing out-of-the-box. But in applications that take advantage of GPU acceleration, Ryzen™ processors with Radeon™ Vega graphics can provide even higher levels of responsiveness.

    Combining these two powerful AMD technologies in a single, convenient processor makes Ryzen™ processors with Radeon™ Vega graphics perfect for partners to offer to customers who are looking for ease, upgradability, performance, and convenience in one package."

    Footnotes:
    1. Testing by AMD Performance labs as of 12/08/2017 for the Ryzen 5 2400G, and 09/04/2015 for the Core i7-5775c on the following systems. PC manufacturers may vary configurations yielding different results. Results may vary based on driver versions used. System Configs: All systems equipped with Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD, Windows 10 RS2 operating system. Socket AM4 System: Ryzen 52400G processor, 16B (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2667 RAM, Graphics Driver 1710181048-17.40-171018a-319170E 23.20.768.0 :: 12/08/2017. Socket LGA1150 System: Core i7-5775c processor, 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1867 MHz RAM, graphics driver 10.18.15.4256:: 09/04/2015. 3DMark 11 Performance benchmark used to represent graphics power. The following processors achieved the following scores in 3DMark 11 ‘performance’ benchmark v1.0.132.0: The Ryzen 5 2400G: 5042. Also in v1.0.132.0, .The Core i7-5775c, the Intel desktop processor with the highest Intel desktop graphics performance, achieved 3094. RZG-01
    2. Overclocking memory will void any applicable AMD product warranty, even if such overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware and/or software. This may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer or motherboard vendor. Users assume all risks and liabilities that may arise out of overclocking memory, including, without limitation, failure of or damage to RAM/hardware, reduced system performance and/or data loss, corruption or vulnerability.

    I wonder what the X470 chipset will bring to the table? I'm sure I will upgrade to Zen+, but not sure about upgrading the MB, unless the chipset offers something new.
