Multiple independent sources have confirmed that AMD has Zen x86 prototype chips ready for demonstration, and we might see them tomorrow during the Computex 2016 press conference in Taiwan.
AMD prepares for IPC race with Intel
In May 2015, we reported that AMD’s first Zen CPUs, launching in Q4 2016, would most likely be quad-core chips based on a presentation slide showing the company’s Zen core units scaling up to four cores with shared L3 cache. According to new information released one year later, this may not be the case and, the company could be preparing to launch eight and six-core variants in a tight efficiency race against Intel's 'Kaby Lake' CPUs.
Lisa Su, AMD's CEO confirms
Ever since AMD announced a Chinesejoint joint server venture, people have been asking around to get a bit more details. Now AMD's CEO has confirmed the technology involved is both x86 and ARM.
Opening the platform up helped
It appears that IBM’s Power system, which had been largely written off, is back from the dead and Biggish Blue’s attempt to resurrect it might have paid off.
Five sign up
More than five computer makers have announced that they are going to use servers with ARM processors.
Zen can reboot server business for AMD
Many have noticed that AMD had pushed the plans to introduce its Skylake processors in 2015. This was supposed to unify the ARM and X86 processors from AMD in the same socket.
Greenland APU gives it the necessary firepower
AMD mini cores and modular designs backed by HBM graphics and the upcoming Greenland GPU core might be a winning combination for AMD.
No APU, 16MB L2, 64MB L3 cache
We recently showed you a new 16 Zen core next generation processor with Greenland integrated graphics and DDR4 support.
Has integrated Greenland HBM GPU
We have mentioned both AMD's Zen core processors, as well as Greenland HBM memory powered graphics in the past, but now we have a few more details.
Products coming by the end of the year
