A new media event will be held at 6 in November AMD, Similar to the one at the end of 2016, where we will receive new information about the company's future 7 nm products for the world of servers and information centers - this includes a possible announcement of the availability of accelerators Radeon Pro-based Vega 20 cores, but what might be even more intriguing is information about the expected performance of the processing cores in the architecture Zen attitude 2, to confirm (or not) the very promising rumors that are going on the net right now.
A few weeks ago, we received a report claiming that the transition from a 12 nm manufacturing process today, in the Zen Plus cores, to the 7 nm manufacturing process in the approaching Zen 2 era, will give us a 13 surge in the number of operations per clock pulse (IPC, R Instructions Per Clock), the measure that is considered to be most effective in describing the relative improvement in performance in neglecting changing work frequencies. In other words, every kernel in the next Ryzen and Threadripper processor generation can provide Performence 13 percent higher than its equivalent in the current generation at the same work frequency - when the improvement should even grow to a level of 16 percent in the EPYC server world, where it was decided to skip toZen attitude Plus a jump between Zen attitude Directly toZen attitude 2.
This is a far greater improvement than we have been accustomed to in the transition between architectures in recent years, even at Intel (where we saw an improvement of approximately 10% 5 in IPC in the transition between different cores architecture, along with a slight frequency addition that supported performance tests) Bulldozer's architecture AMD - And considering the more efficient manufacturing process that will allow next-generation products to operate at higher frequencies at any given time, we may even see a practical 20 percent improvement in performance when compared to one product and its intended successor.
In this situation, it may seem that for the first time, AMD About Intel Even in comparison of single core performance, rather than just comparing Performence In the many cores there, the red chip developer has had a numerical advantage over the past two years - something we only saw last time somewhere in theAthlon 64 in the middle of the previous decade.
It should be noted that as of now, this is only a rumor (which talks about computational tasks rather than gaming) and should be treated with skepticism, but we certainly hope thatAMD You will choose to relate directly or at least indirectly to this interesting figure within the framework of the planned event next week, thereby slightly improving our uncertainty and providing some of the great curiosity.
