The latest generation of APU processors based on architecture Family ofbulldozer May come in a few months, with a new motherboards bracket that will also fit the architecture of the E-Zen attitude The future
AMD's Zen era is approaching, but by the time it's over, there's time - and space is bound to fill The Excavator architecture, The fourth and last of the E-bulldozer Which began as a tremendous promise, ending with a very feeble response.
Recent reports from benchlife.info Confirm that AMD Plans to launch a new intermediate generation of processors with integrated graphics core (what -AMD Calls it APU) in the first half of 2016, under the name Bristol Risdge, and with a number of requested changes: Official Memories Support DDR4, chip Northbridge built into the processor chip itself, a built-in graphics core in an updated GCN architecture and upgraded processing cores that promise to offer improvement Performence Up to 25 in terms of instructions for each clock pulse compared to the current Steamroller architecture, which can be found in the Kaveri processors.
Due to the transition to DDR4 standard memory and a built-in northern bridge, Bristol Ridge processors will need to transition to updated motherboards with a new resident called AM4 - where what's interesting here, and fundamentally different from Intel's approach, is that this residence and motherboards based on it will also support In the future Zen architecture של AMD, Even those multi-core processing that will arrive without Core (At the end of 2016, as has already been officially verified), as well as the 2017 APU processors, which will already integrate the processing core of the X-Zen attitude Along with built-in graphics cores.
Detail of the Bristol Ridge stationary and mobile models - with no official names for now
This is a perception that may have a very positive effect on the AMD, As consumers will be able to assemble a relatively low-cost computer system based on the AM4 board and Bristol Ridge processor, knowing that they can upgrade relatively easily and in the future to Zen-era processors - in the hope that they will meet expectations and make a leap. Performence Which will restore competitiveness to the Sunnyvale chip developer.
We will continue to follow the Bristol Ridge generation which should come in both stationary and mobile versions - and hopefully this is definitely the last time we will have to encounter the particularly old 28 nm architecture.
