AMD Zen “Summit Ridge” Desktop CPUs to Arrive in January 2017

Early this month, AMD is officially shipping the new AM4 socket to accommodate the latest 7th Generation “Bristol Ridge” APUs which support DDR4 memory and next-gen I/O and standards.

However, the more anticipated AMD’s product that will steal the limelight would be no other than the higher-end Summit Ridge “Zen” desktop processors. The Zen CPUs will be based on the 14-nm manufacturing node and will be available up to 8 cores and 16 threads. This chip will support the new AM4 socket, X370, B350, and A320 chipsets, PCI-Express 3.0 as well as DDR4 memory.

AMD claimed that the 8-core, 16-thread Zen desktop processor will not only faster than the previous Excavator series by 40%, in fact it will also outperform a similarly configured 8-core, 16-thread Intel “Broadwell-E” CPU.

According to the information that you can find on the internet, AMD is expected to release the Zen processors during the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) tradeshow that will be held in Las Vegas in January 2017. Coincidentally, Intel is also expected to unveil their 7th Gen Core “Kaby Lake” desktop processors including the flagship Core i7-7700K and i5-7600K during the same event so it’s going to be an interesting party for both camps.
