AMD’s roadmap for 2016 has been released, including desktop and mobiles items portfolio based on the new superior Zen and K12 Cores. And additionally APUs that highlight AMD’s up and coming Next-Generation design Core next architecture. Likely alluding to what we now know at this point as the Arctic Islands Graphics cards highlighting 14nm and the second Generation of the HBM stacked memory.
AMD 2016 Desktop and Mobility Roadmap Leaked
In today’s leak we get the chance to take a gander at how AMD will be its future cores, the “crown jewels” as AMD likes to call them, to make a horde of superior and lower power CPUs and APUs.
So we should examine the 2015-2016 desktop lineup.
In 2015 the execution section will see a continuation of the Vishera FX series, which are in view of the Piledriver CPU Cores. In the standard portion we’re taking a gander at a Kaveri revive named Godavari. This refresh speaks to what Richland was to Trinity. The same bit of silicon plans yet with an improved assembling methodology and higher clock speeds. In the low power portion we see that the AM1 socket will likewise get an upgrade from current Kabini APUs to Beema APUs including Puma+ Cores and higher clock speeds.
However, what truly energizing is the thing that lies ahead in 2016. As AMD series to upgrade the whole product portfolio go with its fresh out of the box new Zen CPU Cores and its next Generation Arctic Islands graphics architecture. In the execution fragment we see AMD at last acquainting a successor with the Piledriver based Vishera elite chips.
“Summit Ridge”: High-performance eight-core AMD processors due next year
Code named “Summit Ridge” this item family will feature Eight Core CPUs with DDR4 support, an altogether new chipset and other FM3 Socket. An eight Cores Zen based CPU ought to be significantly quicker than a current eight Cores FX CPU. Actually, as indicated by the Zen block diagram, every Zen core ought be comparable to a dual core Excavator module in total throughput but significantly faster in single threaded performance. So an 8 core Zen CPU will be more in the league of AMD’s current 16 core Opteron CPUs. But since Zen packs a similar measure of execution into equal parts the quantity of Cores, the threaded / per core execution will be essentially up to contrast with the past era.
“Bristol Ridge”: AMD’s first high-performance SoC for desktops and laptops
This conveys us to “Bristol Ridge” which is a group of APUs including up to four Zen CPU Cores, DDR4 memory backing and a Next Generation GCN graphics architecture. Again on the same FM3 Socket as Summit Ridge. In the event that the proof we’ve so far holds, then this ought to additionally be the first APU to highlight stacked HBM. HBM will be important to keep future incorporated GPUs sufficiently transmission capacity bolstered. Which would permit incorporating GPUs to fundamentally scale up in execution and match their discrete GPU counterparts. For instance, despite the fact that the A10 7850K highlights 512 stream processors, the same sum found in the HD 7750/ R7 250X, it’s still observably slower. Basically because of absence of memory transfer speed, an issue that HBM is situated to address.
“Basilisk”: Small chip based on “big” architecture
At last, in the low power section AMD will present the “Basilisk” APU which is simply a smaller than usual rendition of Bristol Ridge. Highlighting up to 2 Zen Cores and a littler incorporated GPU all inside a lower power envelope.
Proceeding onward to the mobility roadmap, we see both Bristol Ridge and Basilisk APUs making a return on account of their exceedingly incorporated SOC plan. On the other hand, we additionally get a look into AMD’s first ARM Consumer SOC. Code named Amur, this APU will dispatch not long from now. Including four ARM A57 CPU centers, an incorporated GCN GPU and a security processor all inside a thrifty 2W SDP.
It’s very fascinating to see that AMD figured out how to get it GCN graphics architecture inside such a little power envelope. This is maybe an evidence of what we may see on the GPU front from the organization later on. Succeeding Amur will be “Styx” the first consumer item to highlight AMD’s custom ARM center code named K12. It’s additionally intriguing to note that the greater part of AMD’s forthcoming APUs in 2016 will be completely HSA 1.0 compliant. 2016 is turning out to be an extremely occupied and energizing year for PC in terms of computation also.
