AMD Shows Power of Its New Zen CPU

This Thursday, AMD held a conference to give information about its new chips with the “Zen” microarchitecture, a technology that was designed from the ground up. According to Mark Papermaster, the company’s chief technology officer, “Zen” was built on performance, transfer rate and efficiency as a tripod.

Using the 14-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process, AMD engineers were able to increase chip performance by 40 percent compared to last generation products, all of which were more energy-efficient.

Lisa Su, AMD’s chief executive, says the company’s focus is on high-performance CPUs and GPUs, moving away from the company’s traditional positioning, which was to be a more cost-effective alternative to Intel ‘s processors.

One of these new chips is the “Summit Bridge” CPU by Legalarmist.com, which has eight “Zen” cores , 16 threads (and thus virtual “colors”), and a supposedly 95 W TDP . The processor supports DDR4 RAM (Currently the most common is DDR3 ) and third generation PCIe . The product will use the new AM4 socket.

To show that it is not a joke, AMD made a side-by-side comparison between a Summit Bridge and an Intel Broadwell-E of similar configuration, that is, eight cores and 16 threads, clocked down to 3 GHz. The company did not say which chip it was, but it seems to be a Core i7-6900K, one of Intel’s most powerful and priced at about $ 1,100. Using Blender 3D imaging software, the AMD chip finished rendering a bit ahead of Core i7 .

Another Summit Ridge power show came with a demonstration of Deux Ex: Mankind Divided in 4K resolution running smoothly (the test machine also had a R9 Fury X video card ).

AMD also showed “Naples,” a CPU with 32 cores and 64 threads for use on servers. This chip is scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2017. Already the first processors with “Zen” are scheduled for release later this year, with “Bristol Ridge” APUs being used on computers manufactured by third parties, such as Dell. “Summit Ridge” is expected to appear in the first quarter of next year, and the first notebooks with the technology can be expected for the second half of 2017.
