Multiple independent sources confided to FUD Zilla that AMD has working prototypes of its Zen processor and that the company might demonstrate them at the Computex press event it has planned for today:
We have heard that Zen performance should be competitive with Intel's high-end desktop (HEDT) Broadwell-E lineup, but it is not clear how good the processors are going to be. AMD won’t share much about the performance of these parts, since it still has Bristol Ridge, a mainstream part that is already live at the company’s website and marketed as a 7th generation APU series.
Follow the liveast at 10pm EST:
The livecast starts later today at 10pm EST, you can watch it by following the instructions at this link.

I'm not sure what to expect, the company will probably talk about its new Bristol Ridge APUs and share some details about Polaris, but we already know most of the Polaris details and the reviews are under NDA until June 29th so it may be yet another teaser event.
