AMD Confirms x86 Zen Based Enthusiast FX CPUs and 7th Generation APUs in 2016 – Compatible With AM4 Socket AMD has officially confirmed their x86 Zen core architecture at the financial analyst day but that isn’t the only thing they confirmed. Along with the announcement, AMD also confirmed the products which x86 Zen would be fused inside and they all point to faster enthusiast based FX CPUs and next generation APUs which will be featured across one scalable platform on a new socket known as AM4. AMD x86 Zen Based FX CPUs and 7th Generation APUs Arriving in 2016 For Enthusiasts and Mainstream Users To be honest, this was one of the most juicy presentations done by AMD in a while and it has all of us excited. Not only did AMD confirm several new processor and graphics cores but they also confirmed products which will make use of the new cores. We have already covered AMD’s graphics roadmap and the features adopted by their next generation GCN core architecture but something that enthusiast and mainstream users were waiting to see for a while was a proper update on the processor front for consumers. AMD has delivered on that promise by showcasing lineups based around the Zen core architecture as detailed below: AMD x86 Zen High-Performance Enthusiast Processors Arriving in 2016 AMD has confirmed that they are developing a new lineup of modern FX CPUs which will replace the age old Vishera APUs based on the Piledriver core architecture and available on the AM3+ platforms. The next update to the FX CPUs will be based around the Zen core architecture and will be feature on the AM4 platform which being a totally revised design, will adopt several key technologies such as DDR4 memory support and a decent feature set that reflects a true update on AMD’s product portfolio. Some details regarding the new FX CPUs will include high core count with full multi-threading support which confirms AMD is approaching Intel in design scheme and SMT has been rumored for some time now but now it can be officially confirmed. In addition to SMT, Zen also features a new high-bandwidth low latency cache system. A vital improvement over the previous generation of cores. Since subpar cache performance was one of the primary pitfalls of AMD’s Bulldozer CPU microarchitecture. AMD announced that Zen will be available starting next year. The new CPU core will be fabricated on FinFET, however the company doesn’t specify whether it will be 14nm or 16nm FinFET however. But we think it’s a pretty safe bet that it will be Globalfoundries 14nm. Now let’s talk about performance.
AMD Athlon X4 860K kick ass almost all FX CPUs... better than any quad,hexa i almost all Octa cores CPUs FX series!!!! Why???? Simple... 860K have three times powerful cores than FX CPUs... FX have old arhitecture,32nm... 860K is new arhitecture,28nm,Steamroller! and have BRUTAL OVERCLOCK!!! UP TO 6.3Ghz!!!!! Bye,Bye FX and AM3+ socket... Now comes "Intel Killer" ZEN CPUs with new AM4 socket,with Hyperthreading,16 CORES and 32 THREADS!!!!! DDR4!!! 14nm.... AMD REALESE BEAST!!!!!!! Intel si very god,but I dont know if have something stronger than that....
