During the meeting the day with analysts, AMD has also revealed plans to release new processors for the coming year.
So, AMD RYZEN Threadripper high-end processors with 16 cores and 32 threads, which we already know a lot, have to go out this summer. They will receive a new platform that will bring support 4-channel memory controller and 44 lines PCIe. More details about AMD RYZEN Threadripper processors bring the exhibition Computex 2017, which starts at the end of this month.
Leaving server market and upper segment table to move the mass segment. As you know, here we offer AMD desktop processors AMD Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 – ready PCs based on these processors from five leading OEM-manufacturers will come out later this quarter. Soon processors Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 will join smaller brothers Ryzen 3. Data about models and their characteristics slowly seep into the network. Ryzen 3 is scheduled for the third quarter of this year.
As seen in AMD road map, in the second half of the year we can expect out of “commercial” processors Ryzen Pro in desktop segment and in the segment of mobile processors – APU Raven Ridge.
Recent receive up to four processor cores with the architecture of Zen (eight threads) and integrated graphics Vega generation. APU plans to release three classes: the hybrid processor “2-in-1” category of ultrathin laptops, previously called Ultrabooks (Intel term that never caught on), and gaming notebooks.
AMD claims that the new mobile APU Raven Ridge surpass Carrizo and Bristol Ridge on the performance of the processor by 50% and 40% on the schedule with a reduced energy consumption by 50%. In the desktop segment processors Raven Ridge will debut later this year, while mobile APU Ryzen Pro based on them, focusing on the corporate segment, will be released in the first half of next year. What exactly will be pleased with “professional» Ryzen not yet been reported, but for sure it will be possible, related to security, virtualization and remote administration, which are particularly appreciated in this segment.
As can be seen, the architecture of Zen to 2020 survive a few updates: debut will take place this year. Zen processors manufactured on 14nm advanced technology (“14nm +”), to be followed by processors Zen 2 architecture, which are already produced on the thinner 7-nm technology. Close to 2020 godu come processor architecture Zen 3, which is used for the production of an improved version of the 7-nm technology.
