AMD’s Ryzen chips are off to a strong start in desktops, and more chips are coming in the second half of this year.
New chips for desktops, called Ryzen 3, will come in the earlier part of the second half, while Ryzen mobile chips—code-named Raven Ridge—will come out around the end-of-year holiday season.
AMD CEO Lisa Su shared the release schedule during a first-quarter earnings call on Monday. She also said top PC makers will launch desktops with the already shipping Ryzen 5 and 7 chips later this quarter.
The Ryzen 3 is expected to be for low-end desktops, while the Ryzen 5 and 7 chips are faster. Late last week, Acer announced its Aspire GX desktop with Ryzen chip options.
