AMD og Intel veikart for 2018 lekket



Bluechip computer, a German IT distribution company, has inadvertently spilled the beans on AMD and Intel's plans for the remainder of this year, shedding some more light on a number of products whose existence was still somewhat marred in fog. The information comes straight from a webinar Bluechip presented to its industry partners - a 30-minute presentation which made its way to YouTube.

Informasjonen som er innhentet er en bekreftelse, på en måte, for AMDs planlagte lansering av Z490-plattformen deres i juni; B450-brikkesettet kommer litt senere, i juli (et forventet produkt, på alle måter); og AMDs andre gen Threadripper, en kjent mengde allerede, som skal følge med en X399-plattformoppdatering. On Intel's side of the camp, some ill-kept secrets have apparently been confirmed: the launch of the company's Z390 chipset, for instance, is expected to happen in Q3 2018 - some time after Computex, which might mean a relatively sparse landscape when it comes to teases and new product announcements based on Intel's upcoming top of the line chipset. Oh, and that unicorn of an 8-core Coffee Lake part is apparently being prepped for 4Q 2018, with silicon being moved to partner hands as early as June.
