WCCF Tech created a roundup article of all the rumors they've heard and spotted about Zen 2. The site says we can expect significant IPC improvement, perhaps even more than the 15 percent jump that's been rumored for some time now. The new 7nm process from TSMC should also allow much higher clockspeeds, as well as enhanced energy efficiency.
Another area that will be improved is the memory controller:
Zen 2 is also aiming to fix and improve upon the memory controller by reducing the memory delay and allowing better support for higher frequency, lower latency memory. This is great considering the consumer PCs already have access to fast memory but it is also crucial for the server market, which currently relies on higher bandwidth access directly from the system memory. EPYC ‘Napes’ disrupted the performance charts with stellar bandwidth increases and reducing delay could get it up to speed with competitive Xeon platforms too.Furthermore, there's talk about improved AVX performance, but no AVX-512 support.
