As we know, AMD is spent on the development of microprocessor architecture AMD Zen more than four years. And it seems that in the next few years, the company’s R & D-chip maker, the department will be primarily engaged in refining and optimizing this architecture. In an interview with the web edition of PCWorld said AMD CTO Mark Peypermaster (Mark Papermaster).
During the conversation with at CES 2017 show our American colleagues, Mr. Peypermaster confirmed that the life cycle of AMD Zen architecture in a particular form of it should be about four years. At the same time, Mark compared the succeeding stages of development of hybrid and central Zen processors with the Intel strategy “Tik-Tak-Tak”, however, as he said, in the case of AMD will be more correct to call it “So-So-So.” Thus, it is likely that after the official debut of the chips with the architecture of AMD Zen no serious jump processing power CPU «red” is not expected in the coming years.
In addition, reporters PCWorld also managed to communicate with the senior vice president of AMD Jim Anderson (Jim Anderson) on the debut Ryzen processors. According to him, the company does not intend to carry out the so-called “paper announcement” and will present the new CPU only when it will be ready for the world sales.
