Intel starts sending Kaby Lake Processors to device makers and its rival AMD Zen architecture delayed until early 2017 due to serious problems in inventory. Lisa Su has confirmed that AMD Zen CPUs for consumer (regular desktop computers) will not arrive until early next year.

Lisa Su said:
“We have been very focused on the server launch for first half of 2017. Desktop should launch before that. In terms of true volume ability, I believe it will be in the first quarter of 2017. We may ship some limited volume towards the end of the fourth quarter, based on how bring up goes and the customer readiness”.
According to the latest news, We’re expecting a 40% improvement in IPC compared to the previous-Gen CPUs from AMD. High-end consumer grade AMD Zen processors will offer 8 cores @ 3.20 GHz with a TDP of 95W, the same TDP will also offer by the Intel Kaby Lake (shipping will begin in Q4 2016) high-end CPUs with 4 cores, but what really matters is to see the performance and price to draw a clear conclusion.
