Leaked slides show AMD Zen desktop and mobile roadmaps

Posted on Wednesday, August 10 2016 @ 13:47:08 CEST by

A couple of new AMD Zen slides are making the round, the slides use the AMD PRO logos so this is not really the consumer lineup but the plan for business PCs. As usual with these leaked slides, we recommend taking them with a grain of salt, this time the source is an anonymous poster at the SemiAccurate forums.

Interestingly, the new roadmap puts the first Zen-based processors squarely in the 2017 timeframe. Maybe the consumer parts will arrive a bit earlier, but at recent events AMD suggested there would be no big volume of Zen chips until 2017.

The desktop roadmap shows there will be the Summit Ridge chip for the high-end, this model will be a 8-core, 16-threaded processor with a TDP range from 65W to 95W. Raven Ridge on the other hand is the APU, this part will feature four cores, 8 threads, "next-gen" integrated graphics and a 35W to 95W TDP range.

Both parts use the Socket AM4 and the new AMD "Promontory" chipset, which will offer features like USB 3.1, NVMe and SATA Express support. The first Socket AM4 motherboards are expected later this year, they will launch alongside the Bristol Ridge APUs with Socket AM4. Bristol Ridge features old 28nm Excavator cores so it's not really something to look forward to with Zen on the horizon.

Moving to the notebook (and All-in-One PC) slide, we see Raven Ridge with a TDP range from 4W to 35W. The mobile version uses the FP5 socket and the roadmap indicates it will have four cores, 8 threads, and 12 next-gen integrated graphics cores, resulting in up to 16 "compute cores".
