The chip developer will conduct a publicized event in Uncle Sam's country, where we may finally get some answers to the variety of question marks we have
Make room for your schedule - On Tuesday, 13 in December (at 23: 00 Israel Time), we should get more and more familiar with the company's new Zen architecture AMD, Which is probably the most important product of the company in the current decade, and with its first commercial application of course:Summit Ridge, Or SR.
AMD's online event will be broadcast live online, For all those who will be registered in advance for access to it on the official company website, It seems - and the brief description that appears alongside the countdown timer and the title 'New Horizon' makes it clear that this will be the first time we will see Zen architecture in action in the context of gaming and gaming, after the previous technology demo focused on video performance based on software The Blender. After years when the Bulldozer architecture processors (and its derivatives) formed a bottleneck for graphics cards in quite a few of the titles on the market, we would certainly love to have proof thatAMD Move to a situation in which they compete as equals in its products Intel.
The launch of the first Zen processors is set to take place in the first quarter of 2017 as of now, and we sincerely hope the web event in question is just a small appetizer for the CES show in Las Vegas - where we can see the level of industry support and interest in the company's new products AMD, Which will largely determine their potential to succeed.
For dessert, we present to you this table that originates from one of the Chinese hardware sites on the network - where you can find alleged 'hints' about the prices and performance AMD prepares for us: four levels of models to be offered in the familySummit Ridge, From SR3 to the standard quadrature, via the SR5 already upgraded to six physical processing cores, SR7 to include eight physical processing cores, and 16 logical processing cores as well as more powerful and expensive SR7 models.
The same source declares official price levels between 150 and USD for the SR3 models for 500 for the most advanced SR7 models, which can offer a performance level to those of the Core i7-5960X and Core i7-6850K processors from the Extreme Families of Intel, Which are priced several hundred dollars above it. All of this data is not validated, and therefore it is recommended to treat it with a trace of spectacle - yet there is no argument that we are looking forward to a particularly interesting time in the desktop processor world, one that we have not seen in a good few years, and we will continue to monitor and update you in every detail.
