Our Zen CPU will outperform Intel Broadwell-E: AMD

AMD has delayed the launch of its Zen CPU architecture until early 2017, Ars Technica reported.

However, the company promised its new CPUs will outperform Intel’s Broadwell-E class of i7 processors.

According to the report, AMD recently showed one of its 8-core (16 thread) Zen processors outperforming a similar Intel Broadwell-E CPU in a Blender rendering demo.

AMD’s new Zen architecture replaces clustered multithreading with the simultaneous multithreading technology Intel uses in its CPUs.

Desktop Zen processors will also have a new cache memory hierarchy with 8MB of L3 cache, including an improved pre-fetcher, a large unified L2 cache, and separate low-latency L1 instruction and data caches.
