According to the latest data, the first processor architecture AMD Zen will not until the fourth quarter of 2016. Market experts motherboards fear that such a late arrival of a new generation of chips will put AMD’s difficult situation.
The culprit of the delay of release, according to rumors, is a contract manufacturer of semiconductors Globalfoundries. AMD partner has problems with 14-nanometer process technology and FinFET is not yet able to provide the necessary production volumes of chips.
Recall that AMD Zen architecture will provide 40% of the increase in speed of processing cores and add technology support simultaneous processing of multiple threads (SMT). Processors will also have a new caching system with high bandwidth and low latency.
