It's nice that VR is getting competition, so it wont be Oculus and Valve only.

Yup, waiting for the next generation of VR gear to. Too many failings atm...

For me perhaps I will enjoy it in racing games and am also looking forward to seeing how well Star Citizen ends up implementing it. Perhaps around the time the Persistent Universe goes live the next gen VR units will also start being produced

I am glad so many businesses are still pushing VR and did not give up on it easily as some thought they would. It will be Good at some point Soon™

Unless there is one VR SDK, VR will never even leave the gimmick stage.

Microsoft is getting ready to make their mark in VR history, it is 2 months since they shipped their "VR" thing to some chosen people around globe.

And I guess they are working on DirectX SDK for VR.

E3 in a few weeks. We already know pretty much everything about Scorpio so there's got to be something to energize the "fanbase".

I thought Scorpio was based on a polaris derivative and not Vega.

AMD/ATI Mystery Code Names:
Kyzen, Aragon, Pharos, Promethean & CoreAmp

AMD has recently filed for several fascinating trademarks for upcoming products. This filing is particularly interesting because we’ve already seen two of AMD’s several new trademarked product names actually get announced last week during the Financial Analyst Day event.

The newly acquired trademarks include RX Vega, Threadripper, Epyc, Kyzen, Aragon, Pharos, Promethean, Zenso & CoreAmp. Interestingly all of these trademarks were filed around the same time in March and at least three of them have been announced as products in May.
AMD also filed for the Ryzen trademark just a couple of months before it announced the Ryzen brand. So we’re looking at a fairly consistent pattern here which could mean that we’ll see even more of these trademarks announced as products over the next couple of months.

Let’s start with the products that were actually announced, Threadripper & EPYC. Both of these product names were trademarked in March and we now know they’re AMD’s new high end desktop and server processor brands.
Moving on to the mystery code names, we have Kyzen, a name that sounds eerily similar to Ryzen. It appears to be a brand for an upcoming processor as it was filed under the same categories as Ryzen.

CoreAmp sounds like a name AMD would give to an overclocking feature or utility. We might learn more about CoreAmp after Threadripper and Vega are released. Now, Promethean sounds like the code name that AMD might have given to its upcoming high-end chipset for Threadripper processors.
We know AMD loves code names derived from Greek mythology, Ryzen’s chipset was code named Promontory. Which makes Promethean a likely candidate for the company’s upcoming chipset.
Pharos and Aragon do not give off the impression that they’re brands, rather internal code names for AMD technologies. These could be code names for on-chip technologies that AMD is working on for upcoming products.
Finally we have Zenso, which is actually the name of the circular Zen logo that AMD has used for Ryzen. Anyway you slice it these new code names sound fascinating and we can’t wait to know what they could end up as.

Kaizen , is the Japanese word for "continuous improvement ". In business, kaizen refers to activities that continuously improve all functions and involve all employees from the CEO to the assembly line workers. It also applies to processes, such as purchasing and logistics, that cross organizational boundaries into the supply chain.[1] It has been applied in healthcare,[2] psychotherapy,[3] life-coaching, government, banking, and other industries.
