The year 2017 will be the year at which we will finally discover whether the company Come back to our lives and in greatness, or whether it has failed again in a crushing way in its aspirations, in a manner that may endanger its continued existence as well.

Either way, it will surely be very interesting to find out what the situation will be, and it all depends primarily on one name - , The architecture that inherits the bulldozer and will try to restore confidence in the company's workers.

We already know that Summit Ridge's processors , Officially branded under the name of FX with eight processing cores and no built-in graphical cores that will try to bring Intel's Extreme Processors performance to a wider audience, are set to reach stores in the first quarter of next year - and now we're getting initial details on the -Raven Ridge, the first APU processors Which will integrate built-in graphics cores into the company's new generation architecture and general processing cores in the architecture of the company. The new.

According to details from bitsandchips, The Raven Ridge processors will offer a very interesting core suite with quad-core Zen (and support for virtualization technology that will create eight logical cores, similar to Intel's HyperThreading) and a built-in graphics core based on the new VEGA architecture with up to 16 processing clusters with 1,024 units Processing (assuming the underlying architecture will be similar to that of the Polaris architecture) and a dedicated 3D HBM memory for it plus memory To be used in both the graphical core and the processing cores - all in a thermal casing of between 35 watts and 95 watts, and chips with a relatively small maximum surface area of ​​only about 210 square millimeters.

It is highly recommended to treat these data with a healthy dose of skepticism

In addition to the fixed-market products, Will also offer Raven Ridge processors to the mobile market with up to four processing cores Zen, a built-in Vega core with up to 12 processing clusters and 768 processing units, memory (with no The built-in HBM) and thermocouples between 35 and watts to only 4 watts, in chips with a maximum surface area of ​​about 170 square millimeters.

Will next year finally see reasonable mainstream gaming based on processors with built-in graphics cores? We're holding fingers to And to all those involved in the work

We don't yet know when the Raven Ridge processors will become official and go to stores, or whether the details in the previous two paragraphs are accurate or true at all, but it all sounds very interesting and promising - and we're already eagerly watching Zen in action, So we can try to assess the potential that The "new".

  1. For those of you interested, what do you think? .. did you buy apu that only came with 4 cores plus a graphical kernel and add to it a high end crosse card or cpu 8 cores with a high end card? What will bring more performance?

    1. The graphics core in the APU currently in the store has R5 250 built in so if you want Crossfire you must R5 250 along with the CPU's graphics processing, if you add another graphics card then the processor will work like Athlon x4.
      And I don't think it's worth investing in existing AMD products. These are if you find R9 FURY for a good price (which is currently almost anywhere on the Internet [not in the country] costs less than 300 dollars) or RX480 which is weaker but a lower thermal casing.

      1. I meant the apu of the breed (Vega as a video card) when leaving or processing a normal strain (8 cores physically) both of course add a dedicated card also from the soon-to-bega Vega

  2. According to what I understand soon there will also be laptops for gaming with this APU, which will probably be very cheap. And cheaper for performance always brings a smile.

  3. Quote of 80EA

    You understand what you think? .. You bought an apu that came only with 4 cores plus Core Graphically and add to it a high end crash card or cpu 8 cores with a high end card? What will bring more performance?

    Buy i5 with a normal video card plus.

    The FX processor is obsolete and has not been updated for three years, the APU is currently only at the i3 level, and most games will prefer the best single core performance of the i3.

  4. Just interesting for me performance and price!
    I believe that humans, of any age or condition, and provided the conditions are right, can change! _ (With will + courage + willingness a person can do whatever he wants)
    Why am I dramatic?
    Because if AMD gives true and original Fayette and without any mystery to Intel (and better if you outdo it), I would be very happy!
    All the trust and hope that comes with owning technology will come back to me.
    I don't like AMD at all, but if it brings me something quality and uncompromising ... I'll be the first to say goodbye to Intel (and hopefully in the future from NGRIDIA)

  5. I think if AMD can deliver an APU processor that gives equivalent performance to a modern Core i5 processor with a good integrated graphics core (perhaps even at the level of RX 460, Built from 14 processing units / CUs and hopefully even a little more) and at a competitive price they will have a winning product simply because most people don't need it anymore. In fact, if that is the case and the price is lucrative I would definitely consider buying a trio like this (the last AMD processor I had was Athlon XP in the early 2000 that suffered from a terrible warming problem).

  6. seen. Just don't come back to the Series A fiasco that was weaker than the simple ATHLON.
