New information about future processors AMD, Called "Zen", may reveal to us the company's answer to the processor market for 2016
Intel, behind you. A new information leak exposes Microsoft 's programs AMD At 2016, with some nice surprises. According to the information, AMD Plans to jump straight into the production process of FinCom's 14 nanometers, a serious leap from the current production process of its current FX processors, produced in 32 nanometer lithography. In addition, the information says that AMD It will probably use GlobalFoundries' plants for the production of these new processors,AMD Its factories. Remember that already today Intel Provides Processors Which are available to all in the production process of 14 nanometers with the C-Broadwell.
Except for a new manufacturing process, AMD Plans to support DDR4 memories with a chipset that is expected to come with the new processors. This piece of information is not so surprising when we talk about processors that are going to go out on 2016, until then it's almost safe to say that DDR4 memories will be cheaper and more available on the market. However, according to the well-known behavior of AMD, It is also possible to estimate that the company will support DDR4 memories alongside type memories DDR3, As she did during the market's transition to memories DDR3 M-DDR2 With the AM3 chassis several years ago.
Additional details on AMD's Zen processors include a maximum TDP of 95W, which gives the new processors enough space to deliver high performance without overheating, in addition to support Simultaneous Multithreading, A technology that allows a processor that supports it to process multiple tasks / processes in the same clock cycle, unlike the technologyCluster Multithreading That-AMD Used it in the Bulldozer processors she makes. Use of Simultaneous Multithreading technology (which Intel brands as "Hyper-Threading" in its processors) is expected to improve the company's processor performance (a typical 15-20 percent improvement), but rumors about using this technology by AMD Have been floating since the use of my work Intel, So the reliability of the information is not safe.
The Zen Processors AMD Not expected to appear until the second half of 2016, when as with the Deneb and Bulldozer cores that followed, the company showed great potential to compare and even overtake Intel in terms of the performance of its processors, something that has not happened since the first launch of dual-core Athlon processors The first of AMD (And in the market), which subdued everything Intel had to offer (until it introduced the first Core processors, of course). Until then we will have to wait and see whether to -AMD There really is a chance to catch up to the gap in front Intel And re-conquer the market.
