On the data center front, in March we demonstrated that our upcoming Naples server CPU would offer more cores, I/O, and memory bandwidth when compared to the highest-end dual socket x86 server CPUs currently available, resulting in better performance across multiple workloads.Additionally, Su reiterated that the Ryzen 3 processors as well as the first Ryzen mobile APUs will follow in the second half of the year. The mobile Ryzen APUs are expected towards the holiday cycle, so basically the end of the year. It's not really major news as we already knew all of this, it's rather confirmation that everything is still on track.
Naples platform development work continued to accelerate in the quarter. We are in the final stages of preparation in advance of launch and are very pleased with the status of our silicon and customer engagements. We have now seated thousands of Naples processors across an extensive set of OEMs, end users and partners, and remain on track for our first Naples products to launch this quarter.
