AMD celebrates Ryzen anniversary – future plans and increased OEM usage

AMD's Ryzen series of CPUs are celebrating their 1st anniversary, marking a year since the company revolutionised the CPU market with their highly competitive Zen CPU architecture. To commemorate this occasion AMD hosted a webinar, highlighting their achievements while also looking forward into 2018.
In 2018 AMD says that there will be more than 60 new Ryzen OEM platforms, highlighting how Ryzen has been able to capture the trust of OEMs, many of which already sell Ryzen-powered desktop and mobile systems. The company also stated that they plan to refresh their Ryzen desktop lineup over the coming months, with their Ryzen 2nd Generation series of processors.
Ryzen continues to gain market share in 2018, especially since the introduction of EPYC and Ryzen Mobile to cover the enterprise and mobile markets, areas where AMD has not had a significant market share for quite some time. With their Ryzen core design, AMD can now create processors that range from $100-$1000 in the consumer market, tapping both the high-end and low-end of the CPU market.

In April AMD plans to release their 12nm Ryzen 2nd Generation of CPUs, with Ryzen Pro Second Generation and Ryzen Threadripper Second Generation coming later in the year.
AMD's Ryzen 2nd Generation products will feature enhanced clock speeds, support for XFR 2 and support for Precision Boost 2.0, all of which will allow AMD to deliver higher levels of performance in single-threaded and multi-threaded workloads than their current generation counterparts. These new processors are also expected to offer lower latencies in their cache structure, though other latency improvements could be possible.

In 2018 AMD needs to capitalise on their existing gains with Ryzen, cementing for themselves a place within the high-end CPU market. If AMD can continue to gain market share, they will give themselves a lot more freedom in the future financially, if AMD can earn more they can invest more in R&D, which can only be a good thing for the industry.
You can join the discussion on AMD's Ryzen anniversary on the OC3D Forums.
