Did you think that the future chip processor's Naples processor is crazy? A company road map reveals even more surprising plans for 2018
After proving to us the closing of significant gaps in the processing of the single core, and demonstrating to us the potential of its modular approach, AMD You will have to show that it has the technology required to increase this basic design more and more, for dozens of processing cores in one bracket - and from there the sky is the limit.
The first practical proof of this leap of CCX is expected to come this year, with the launch of the Naples processors to the world of servers that will deliver up to 32 physical processing cores and 64 logical processing cores for a particularly tough war with new Xeon families Intel - But now it turns out that 2018 might give us an even crazier product from the developer of Sunnyvale.
According to a roadmap to the business-professional market that was exposed on videocardz.com, AMD Aims to make another major technological leap for FinFET chips in 7 nanometer lithography only, in line with the plans of its upcoming partner GlobalFoundries, in 2018 - enabling it to provide us with a new flagship server market product that fits Starship and includes 48 processing cores Zen attitude (!!), along with SMT technology that will turn them into 96 logical processing cores. All in a single MCM unit, of course, that can be integrated into a single pair and perhaps even a quartet on a single motherboard, for processing capabilities that may be revolutionary in a field that requires complex integer calculations and access to a particularly high-volume cache.
The leaked road maps (which originate from 2016, and hence the data, especially the stated times, with some degree of skepticism) also reveal the company's plans to go in the opposite direction and offer minimalist products with a pair of physical processing cores Core In a tiny power envelope of 4 watts to 15 watts, somewhere in 2019 and based on the spoken 7 nanometer, plus quad-core processors with a power envelope starting from just 10 watts.
It is worth noting that all the programs and products mentioned in the previous paragraphs are for the professional market only, servers and supercomputers on one hand and programmed production lines, advertising systems and computer kiosks on the other - but the fulfillment of these programs is likely to come to the launch of parallel marketed products Which is more relevant to us. As part of this roadmap, there seems to be a good reason to fantasize about a future Ryzen processor generation where 16 looks like physical processing cores on home computers, alongside jumping into the mobile market with products that will compete head-to-head with the Y, U and HQ models of Intel, After years of almost total monopoly category.
The future of the CPU market is undoubtedly based on many more processing cores available everywhere and any device, and we have nothing but hope that the developers will also be convinced - and begin to adapt themselves and their products to this new age from now on, to optimize it from day one.
