[WCCFTECH] AMD Roadmap Update for 2016-2017

post #1 of 82
Thread Starter 
Quote:
The first roadmap details AMD’s mobility and All-in-One efforts. Bristol Ridge and Stoney Ridge are both slated for this year on the 28nm process and have already started their life on the shelf. The Bristol Ridge platform features upto 4 Excavator cores and 8 GCN cores with a configurable TDP of 10W to 35W. Similarly Stoney Ridge, which is like a Bristol Ridge cut in half, will rock 2 Excavator Cores and 3 GCN cores with configurable TDP of 10W – 25W. Both of these products are expected to last till 2017 and come in FP4 packaging.
The FP5 based Raven Ridge will be based on the 14nm SoC and will feature 4 Zen cores (which considering the architecture has SMT, translates to 8 threads) as well as 12 Next Generation GCN cores. This is going to be a beast of an APU and will be coming in transfigurable TDP of 4 to 35Ws. The scheduled release for this platform is set firmly in 2017 according to the roadmap.



The second roadmap and the one more interesting – is about AMD’s Desktop side of things. First thing you will notice is that the Bristol Ridge roadmap is queued for the 2016-2017 time frame as well – yet we have not seen any of the APUs out in the open as of yet. Based on the promontory chipset, these APUs require the AM4 motherboard which have yet to debut.
Summit Ridge and Raven Ridge however, are both firmly slated for release in 2017. Summit Ridge is of course the mainstream Zen platform which will be rocking 8 Cores and 16 Threads. The socket in question is the new unified AMD4 socket which requires the promontory chipset and will have configurable TDPs of 65W to 95W (the standard). It is refreshing to see that AMD is not focusing on lowering power requirements and sacrificing performance for the high end desktop segment and is only focusing on low TDP envelopes where it is absolutely required.

AMD A10-7800 series APU did well for entry level 720p gaming without adding Graphics Card.
I am really looking forward to Bristol Ridge for this year and then Raven Ridge Next year.
Not expecting to beat entry level discreet GPU but at least should bring a reasonably nice performance for mainstream gaming.

So in the picture...2016-2017 means "Q4 two thousand sixteen paper launch, Q2 two thousand seventeen availability" and 2017 really means "Q4 two thousand seventeen availability" Intel will be what, on their 2-3rd gen CPU @ 14nm when AMD is launching their first 14nm CPU... Not trying to smash AMD, I believe the company still has some good life left in them but gosh they're moving at a snails pace...

I'd say A10 7800 unlocked the 1080p-medium tier for integrated graphics.[Source]

While we could always hope for a knockout punch, anything that can at least get AMD CPUs back into greater marketshare is a good win. Hopefully Zen is that.
post #5 of 82

So Zen will be out mid next year. Fortunately my CPU serves me well, otherwise I'd be unhappy.

Well, my plan to build a new PC, retaining only my current GPU, is in jeopardy since AMD pushes ZEN for Q1 2017 release.

Originally, i figured that since both Kaby Lake and ZEN will release in Q4, there will be plentiful reviews for both of them and i would pick the best value between unlocked i5 and ZEN counterpart.

Guess i will be going with Kaby Lake, unless some reviewers will get some ZEN chips in Q4 and it will be an INSANE value. Then i could wait till Q1 2017.

Agree but the kind of money they have for R&D, they are atleast moving. i doubt other 2 can do anything in amd's situation.

That you do have a point... Their R&D budget is like 1/50th of Intel's...

Wow, 3 billion vs 238 million, and AMD has to split that between GPU and CPU divisions.

This is a roadmap for PRO parts, Summit Ridge ZEN is still Q4 2017.


The hysteria that is enveloping the forum of industry could be quite out of place, as it is misunderstood roadmap that jumped out just yesterday, on some products based on AMD uArch "Zen".
Zen will be marketed in late 2016, in limited quantities, as AMD says from time, while for 2017 are expected variants PRO, ie those certified to be used in critical environments work (especially Workstation).

Because of the numerous and rigorous testing that is called to make for products of this type, it is natural to be marketed after the consumer variants. And 'what always happened (for Intel - Xeon - and NVIDIA - Quadro), and will remain so for products based on Zen.

Edit: On the other hand, AMD mentioned it demends on "consumer readiness" for Q4 16 relase .
Whatever.
