AMD has some awesome stuff coming up in 2017. I got to talk with Jason Megit of AMD about their use of Thunderbolt 3 in their systems, but we also talked about Linux use and their newest line of video graphics cards in AMD Vega.
AMD and Thunderbolt 3
Even though Thunderbolt is an Intel technology, it’s also a standard for all to use. That is why you will see Thunderbolt 3 in AMD laptops as well. After all, everyone needs the 40 GB data transfer, ability to connect dual 4K monitors and even a way to power the laptop.

A lot of Linux systems and STEAM game systems also will benefit from the use of Thunderbolt 3. With the use of AMD’s Crimson drivers, you will be able to utilize your machine and the full functionality of the protocol.
Jason also talked about their newest video card in Vega. This is a high-end graphics card that will start shipping by summer 2017. No price points just yet.
