AMD Selling Semi-Custom SoC to China for New Gaming PC and Console

AMD has announced a semi-custom design win for a new gaming PC and console in China. The SoC will be a Ryzen CPU with 4c/8t and a Vega GPU running at 1.3ghz with 8GB of GDDR5 on the motherboard. Sounds like a nice chip. With that said, I'm not sure you'll be able to buy one of these chips because they are exclusive to Zhongshan Subor. However, even if it doesn't make it to the rest of the world I'm sure we'll find out how good it is or isn't and if successful something like it might appear for the rest of us. Thanks cageymaru.

The new gaming PC was demonstrated in the Subor booth at ChinaJoy, the largest gaming and digital entertainment exhibition in China and Asia. Subor plans to launch their new game PC in late-August. The SUBOR gaming console, featuring the same hardware as the gaming PC but with a customized operating system, is expected to launch by the end of 2018.
