Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) is still in the process of bringing more new and improved product innovations to the tech market. With the company's successful release of its high-end desktop CPUs, next to be released will be their high-end Radeon Vega graphics cards and code name Naples server CPUs. These upcoming products will put AMD back to the scene and fight head to head with its competitors.

AMD successfully launched its first three CPUs (Ryzen 7 1700, Ryzen 7 1700X, and Ryzen 7 1800X) based on the company's new Zen architecture. Ryzen 7 series CPUs made a very big impact on the enthusiast-level market due to the CPUs' wins in terms of performance and price compared to its Intel counterparts.

Ryzen also encountered some bumps along its release and failed to perform better in some games at 1080p. These problems arose and are believed to be related to some motherboard BIOS issues and software supports although AMD provides software support. Hopefully game developers would become more familiar with AMD's Zen architecture and provide optimizations specifically for the architecture.

AMD will continue to shake the market with their new line of graphics cards, the Radeon Vega GPUs, which will be released second quarter this year. The new AMD Vega 10 GPU will utilize the latest Next Compute Unit (NCU) 14nm GFX9 core architecture. The high-end graphics cards will have 64 compute units or 4096 stream processors, the clock speed of 1526 MHz, and with a TDP of 225W.

Another major leap for AMD will be its reentry to the data center market with Naples. Naples, not the official name for AMD's server CPUs, is still based on the Zen architecture but implemented on a much bigger scale. Naples can be used on both single and dual processor platforms. AMD also boasts of its performance which they believe will have a big impact on the data center community.
