AMD boasts of Ryzen-backed growth, still makes a loss

AMD has been busy this quarter and has launched server processors called EPYC, Ryzen CPUs and outlined its graphics chip plans.

You need a top GPU to go with your expensive new CPU, so check out our pick of the best graphics cards to buy today.

Su also noted that the graphics hardware business saw a boost from sales to crypto-currency miners, and that in some places the demand is leading to dwindling inventories.

AMD has released its earnings for the second quarter of its 2017 financial year, and while its revenue is on the up it is still struggling to turn interest in its Zen architecture into profits. Notably, the company has a positive track record of delivering earnings surprises, having surpassed earnings estimates in each of the preceding four quarters. AORUS is teasing their upcoming X399 GAMING 7 motherboard, something that was at Computex, now rocking M.2 heatspreaders. On a GAAP basis, the company predicted it would bring in $0.53 per share. MU, -5.59% have greatly outperformed the S&P 500 index SPX, +0.29% Nvidia is up 46% this year, with its chips powering the artificial intelligence functions in servers and self-driving cars, while Micron has surged 32%, along with memory prices. The power delivery system is cooled by two sets of aluminum based heatsinks. The Threadripper 1920X will feature 12 cores and 24 threads with a base clock of 3.5GHz. So, let's take a look at the company's own projections, to begin with. If you pre-order the motherboard, you will be applicable to the Xpedition Pack promotion which grants you either a Kingston HyperX Cloud headset or a Steam $50 US voucher code which is splendid. The beta factor of AMD is stands at 2.69. However, the Taichi will not offer the 10Gb/s Ethernet connectivity of the Fatal1ty Professional Gaming boards. A total of 64 PCIe lanes are available; 60 of which are allotted for graphics usage and PCIe NVMe.

Operating income of $25 million doesn't seems like a lot but compared to a $29 million loss in Q1 2017 it does look like an improvement. Of course, this Threadripper processor itself wouldn't be this huge as the packaging no doubt also contains a cooler for the chip. Both motherboards come with a very similar design scheme.

As the official AMD Ryzen account on Twitter unleashed the above imagery, simultaneously CEO Dr Lisa Su uploaded a picture to give us some scale and context.

I asked about Intel's (INTC) unveiling two weeks ago of its latest server chips, "Xeon Scalable", meant to continue Intel's dominance of the data center. The tail end of Q1 did include some Ryzen sales, but not nearly enough to offset the losses that they accumulated.

Client average selling price (ASP) increased significantly on year, as desktop processor ASP increased due to the first full quarter of Ryzen processor shipments, while GPU ASP increased on year.
