AMD President And CEO Dr. Lisa Su AMD has been slowly releasing information about its next-generation Zen processor core architecture since mid-last year. Complete specifications haven’t been officially released, but we do know that initial Zen-based processors will be manufactured using a 14nm FinFET process, and that a Zen core-based family of products will eventually scale all the way from mobile devices on up to big-iron, enterprise servers. News of a 32-core / 64-thread Zen-based server processor codenamed “Naples” broke a few months back, and AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su recently showed off an... Read more...
AMD CEO Lisa Su On Stage At The PC Gaming Show With The Radeon RX 470 And RX 460 The first member of the Radeon RX series, the Radeon RX 480, isn’t due to arrive for another few weeks, but that didn’t stop AMD CEO Lisa Su from showing off a couple of additional graphics cards featuring Polaris-based GPUs at the company’s PC Gaming Show, which is currently underway at E3. AMD claims the $199 Radeon RX 480 will offer uncompromising performance at 1440P and enable premium VR experiences, despite its relatively low price point. Joining the Radeon RX 480 is a slightly scaled down Radeon RX 470 and the... Read more...
AMD brought a bag of goodies and a few surprises up its sleeve to Computex, including an affordably priced Polaris part, the $199 Radeon RX 480, and some 7th generation APUs, Bristol Ridge and Stoney Ridge. The Sunnyvale chip designer could have stopped there and nobody would have complained, but before calling it a night, AMD gave the first public demonstration of a desktop CPU based on its high performance Zen architecture. It started with a short video, which AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su said was "created, edited, rendered, and played back on our new desktop processor with Zen." She then held up the... Read more...
Holy 14nm, Batman! If the slides that have been appearing online are real, it looks like AMD will soon announce a new lineup of CPUs based on 14nm technology. The leaked roadmap slides appear to show AMD’s plans for both mobile and desktop processors in 2016.On the mobility side of things, AMD appears to have three new 14nm SoCs planned: Bristol Ridge, Basilisk, and Styx. The Bristol Ridge line will feature as many as four Zen CPU cores and will be the go-to for mainstream/performance devices. Basilisk and Styx, on the other hand, will be low- and ultra-low power units, respectively. Styx will... Read more...
