вЂ‹AMD Ryzenв„ў processors win вЂњBest Tech 2017 PC Component of the YearвЂќ Award
вЂ‹AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) has won twice at the prestigious Trusted Reviews Awards 2017, including the readerвЂ™s choice of вЂњBest Tech 2017 Brand of the YearвЂќ and вЂњPC Component of the YearвЂќ for AMD and for the AMD Ryzenв„ў processors, respectively.
Trusted Reviews, a highly respected news and media website in London, UK, is a comprehensive source of independent expert reviews, user reviews and news about consumer electronics, and holds their annual awards celebrating the very best products launched in the tech world each year.
вЂњAMD redefined what gamers could expect from their PCs this year, which is a major factor in winning the reader-voted award. In doing so, it beat Samsung, Apple, and Intel,вЂќ said Evan Kypreos, Editor of Trusted Reviews, at its 10th annual Trusted Reviews Awards. вЂњThe award tops off a sterling year for the company, which boasted a 300% profits increase in its most recent earnings report thanks to huge sales of its new Ryzen processors.вЂќ
While the winner of the вЂ?Brand of the YearвЂ™ category is decided by the public, the вЂ?PC Component of the YearвЂ™ award is selected by a panel of Trusted Reviews experts, choosing AMD Ryzen processors from a full range of products launched in the last 12 months and reviewed by Trusted Reviews experts.
In its coverage of the PC component of the year award, Trusted Reviews wrote: вЂњAMDвЂ™s Ryzen chips were first launched in March this year. In the intervening months theyвЂ™ve changed the landscape of the processor market, bringing huge and relatively affordable multi-core power to PC gamers worldwide. The Ryzen 3, 5 and 7 chips all received Recommended awards in their Trusted Reviews reviews, which is no mean feat in such a competitive market.вЂќ
вЂњ2017 has been an incredible year for AMD in delivering both AMD Ryzen processors and Radeonв„ў RX Vega Graphics to a passionate response from enthusiasts, whom appreciate the industry-leading innovation AMD brings to the PC market,вЂќ said AMD Chief Marketing Officer John Taylor. вЂњWeвЂ™re thrilled and grateful to the Trusted Reviews audience for their recognition of continued AMD efforts to push the boundaries of what is possible for developers, enthusiasts, creators, consumers and gamers.вЂќ
