AMD to unify its lineup around Socket AM4

Posted on Monday, January 11 2016 @ 13:59:36 CET by

AMD clarified at CES that it will unify its Zen-based CPUs and APUs around the new Socket AM4 platform, making an end to the current, fragmented motherboard socket landscape. This will start with the introduction of the Excavator-based Bristol Ridge and the Zen-based Summit Ridge series.
After years of shipping a legion of CPUs and APUs for a multitude of different motherboard sockets, AMD is streamlining matters with the launch of its forthcoming processors. AMD’s Zen-based CPUs and APUs—codenamed “Summit Ridge” and “Bristol Ridge,” respectively—will both feature a fully integrated system-on-a-chip design and share the same socket, dubbed AM4.
The first Socket AM4 motherboards are expected to hit the market next quarter, while the first Zen chips aren't expected until the end of the year.
