So Carrizo will improve everything.. FPU, memory controller and effiency... HBM? still 28nm? ...
Carrizo will have a new FPU design to support AVX2. Carrizo will most likely have frame compression as found in Tonga which will leviate the current bandwidth problems the igpu has. Carrizo will most likely feature 30% higher performance at the same power at 15W. Carrizo will be made on 28nm. Carrizo will have DDR3 and most likely the server versions will have DDR4.
Carrizo is very very unlikely to have HBM. But they may do a Iris pro like APU for notebooks who knows.

Hence why AMD is not even trying to hype Carrizo up and is trying to put all focus on the next gen processors as much as possible.
Carrizo is indeed a stop gap that is very clear but it will be a major boost most likely even better than Piledriver was over Bulldozer. Considering this is rumoured to replace Beema which is very efficient I think efficiency is exceptional. Which means that my wallet will be depleted for the next couple of months due to the new core M notebooks and Carrizo.Edited by maarten12100 - 10/20/14 at 12:45pm
