A new media event will be held at 6 in November AMD, Similar to the one it conducted at the end of 2016, in which 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 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 which claimed that the transition from a production process at 12 nm today, in the Zen Plus cores, to the production process at 7 nm in the approaching Zen 2 era, will give us a 13 percent jump in the number of operations performed at each clock pulse (IPC, R Instructions Per Clock), the measure considered to be most effective in describing the relative improvement in performance in neglecting changing work frequencies. In other words, all Core In the next generation of Ryzen and Threadripper processors you will be able to deliver about 13 percent higher performance than its current generation at the same working frequency - with the improvement expected to grow to 16 percent in EPYC processors to the server world, where it was decided to skipZen Plus a jump between Zen Directly toZen 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 taking into account the more efficient manufacturing process that will allow next-generation products to also operate at higher frequencies at any given time, we may even see a 20 percent practical improvement in performance compared to one product and its intended successor.
In this situation, it may seem that for the first time, AMD About Intel Also in comparison of performance Core Single, and not just when comparing multi-core performance where the red chip developer has a numerical advantage in the last two years - something we last saw only somewhere in the days of 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.
