We don't know how VideoCardz keeps doing it but somehow the site always manages to get its hands on the hottest information about upcoming AMD and NVIDIA products. I can imagine PR teams are getting desperate to flush out the mole(s) responsible for these leaks, but for enthusiasts it's good news as you get the good stuff a lot earlier.
Today the website leaked a bunch of slides from the AMD Ryzen presentation. Earlier speculation about trademark filings from AMD turned out to be correct, the Zen-based desktop processors are indeed called Ryzen! The slides reveal the first AMD Ryzen CPUs will hit the market in Q1 2017, they will be 8-core parts with 16-threads, 20MB L2+L3 cache memory, and with clockspeeds in excess of 3.4GHz. The first slide also prominently features "AMD SenseMI technology", but we have no idea what that is.
Ryzen will introduce Extended Frequency Range (XFR), a more advanced clockspeed boost feature that will go beyond the ordinary Precision Boost limits. The slide explains performance will scale with your cooling solution, the lower your temperatures the higher XFR will push the boost.
Other slides detail the new Smart Prefetch system as well as Pure Power, a feature for enabling lower power consumption for the same performance.
More details are expected later today at the AMD New Horizon livestreaming event.
