AMD has been targeting the established Intel and Nvidia combination for high-end gaming PCs. The Threadripper 16 Core processor (which will be available on August 10) , pushed intel to anounce its 18 core Core i9 processors . If AMD can compete well with Nvidia’s GTX 1080 or 1080 then maybe we will not have to wait for a new product anouncement from Nvidia .
However Nvidia is expected to launch Volta line GPUs in first month of 2018.
The Ryzen Threadripper processors will also be available with a 12 core version.
Its been almost few years that AMD has toped the competition. But the company expected to top the competition with their newly unveiled products. But they also have to wait along with us for the release date , to find out whether they outstands the market or finds a place in the rabbit hole.
