AMD will not release new high-end CPU in 2014

AMD revealed new 2013-2014 processor roadmaps this week and one of the things the slides reveal is that the company isn't planning any major update for the performance segment. The slide below reveals the 32nm Vishera FX-series processor continues to be AMD's highest-end offering throughout 2014. There's no word whether Vishera's sucessors are cancelled but I wouldn't be surprised if this means the end of AMD's high-end lineup. Given the company's dire finances it has simply become impossible to compete against Intel on all fronts.
Perhaps, AMD will increase clock-speed of the chips, but micro-architecture- and design-wise they will continue to be the same products that were introduced a year ago. Given the fact that currently-available FX processors fit into AM3+ infrastructure, AMD’s high-end 2014 platform will feature the technologies from 2012 – 2013.

Traditionally, AMD’s high-end FX microprocessors relied on designs originally developed for servers. Enthusiast-class central processing units feature lower core-count but higher clock-rates compared to server units. In addition, they lack certain specific functionality. AMD’s server plans for 2014 include code-named Warsaw CPU with twelve or sixteen Piledriver cores, which should feature certain design changes compared to currently-available Opteron 4300-/6300-series products. Unfortunately, it does not look like there will be consumer-class derivative from Warsaw.
