AMD Zen And K12 Designs Completed And Taped Out – On Track For 2016 And 2017 Availability

AMD’s next generation x86 and ARM high performance cores code named “Zen” and “K12” have reportedly taped out according to the linkedin profile of an AMD design engineer. Coincidentally AMD’s President and CEO Lisa Su had also announced at the company’s Q3 earnings call that the company’s design teams have successfully taped out several FinFET designs at multiple foundries in Q3 2015.

According to the profile of an AMD design engineer spotted by Matthias Waldhauer AKA Dresdenboy on Linkedin, both Zen and K12 have already taped out. You’ll find a screengrab of the relative information below.

16/14 FinFet? If Zen is really on the GloFo 14nm what should be that 16nm one?

Could be arctic islands GPUs, the SoC for the new nintendo console or Zen even (in case AMD wants to test both nodes).

In one way or another (based on recent rumors) either Zen or Arctic Islands will either be on 14nm or 16nm. Seems rumors have swayed in both directions, with either CPUs or GPUs (meaning both have been purported to be on 14nm or 16nm at one time). The question really is which one is which exactly, however, you can bet based on this engineer's linked in profile that at least one of them will be on 14nm or 16nm (one being one and another being another).

Since it seems he deals with CPUs I doubt his talking about GPUs? Or maybe he actually does. This just creates confusion biggrin.gif

It could be that K12 is 16nm and Zen is 14nm. Or vise versa.
post #7 of 44
AMD's final shot at the CPU market. If Zen fails, its the end of them
post #8 of 44
i think zen is 16 and the k12 will be an energy effecient 1 at 14

Dresdenboy lol, i like those Jim Butcher books too but that name... I think im going to upgrade to Zen once it comes out as long as its faster than my 4.5 GHZ 2500k.

The k12 is probably 14nm where as zen is probably 16nm reason being is that the ARMv8 cores are already being produced at 14nm for others and soon 10nm so k12 at 14nm should be pretty easy to make.
