AMD Raven Ridge APUs will use Ryzen branding and more highlights from the AMA

There was a big Ryzen-themed Ask me Anything (AMA) at Reddit with AMD's Lisa Su, Robert Hallock and James Prior, you can check all the questions and answers over here.

Lets take a look at some of the highlights:
  • AMD confident gaming performance will improve over time by working with the game developers, promises 1080p performance will improve. Su said 300+ developers are working with Zen, and several developers of Ashes of Singularity and Total Warhammer are actively optimizing now.

  • Large team is working on Zen 2. Zen 3 name also mentioned in passing.

  • Ryzen supports ECC memory, but no ECC-REG. It's up to the motherboard maker to support ECC via the BIOS.

  • The upcoming Raven Ridge APUs will use the Ryzen brandname.

  • AMD's Infinity Fabric is used within Ryzen and Vega to connect the IPs together.

  • Laptops and 2-in-1s with Ryzen are expected in second half of 2017.

  • Ryzen has no support for 2P configurations. Zen for workstations will be revealed in the coming months.

  • After seeing interest on Twitter, AMD is looking into a way to get Ryzen hoodies to its fans.

  • AMD is looking into per-core overclocking in BIOS

  • Socket AM4 to be around for a long time, commitment to long-term use and compatibility.

  • Confirmation that Ryzen uses liquid indium solder between die and heatspreader.

  • Support for faster DDR4 speeds expected through BIOS updates, some vendors are already hitting DDR4-3400 reliably. Best results so far with Samsung B-Die DIMMs.

  • Broad availability of Mini-ITX motherboards comes later. It takes the motherboard makers longer to engineer, and there's a smaller market for these boards so it's basic economics.

  • No plans to move to quad-channel memory on Ryzen.
