The new and promising generation of AMD Is scheduled to receive the stage at the CES 2017 exhibition in January
B-AMD Just recently launched the Bristol Ridge generation, the seventh and latest APU processor generation to be based on a Bulldozer-derived architecture - and it's no surprise to find that media coverage for this event is minimal. After all, around the corner is already the dawn of a new era with Zen architecture, and also beyond production in a recent process of 14 nm With transistor FinFET.
We already know that the first Zen processors, which promise to deliver up to 40 percent of the capabilities and performance Core Single (efficient and improved operation as well) versus the E-bulldozer The most recent (V2 Excavator)Summit Ridge Which is branded under the name FX and targeted to the high performance market without any built-in graphics cores - and now we get an update that despite all the efforts, the official launch and first commercial models will be coming to us not this year, but early next year.
According to a report Of the well-known Taiwanese business site Digitimes,AMD Will take advantage of the CES 2017 exhibition in Las Vegas to launch its first Zen processors, along with the X370 chipset that will be the most advanced for its new AM4 chassis, which will be universal both for high-end models and for the APU models in the other segments of the market As opposed to the competitor's tactics Intel Which separates them, as is known) and has already been officially launched with the Bristol Ridge processors.
The report states thatAMD Has already started cutting further prices for its existing FX models, which were launched somewhere in 2014, in order to get rid of most of the existing inventory for a smooth transition to the new era, which should be a much more significant competition for the leading models of Intel. We will definitely hold on to that.
AM4-based motherboards and the X370 chipset are set to land on store shelves starting December 2016, while new FX processors (with four, six and eight physical processing cores) are expected to reach commercial volumes starting February 2017, assuming no last-minute delays - And in the middle of 2017 we are also set to receive the Raven Ridge family, which will be a new generation of integrated APU models Core Built - in graphics that will be based on Zen attitude And try to bring the gospel to the mainstream. Will be interesting - that's for sure.
