source shared slides that, apparently, will be shown during the online broadcast of the New Horizon, which AMD will hold today at midnight. Therefore, some information about the new company’s processors we know now.
firstly, the assumptions about naming proved to be correct. Processors will actually be called Ryzen. Secondly, the information is limited to only one CPU models. It contains eight cores (16 threads) that operates at a frequency of 3.4 Ghz. Technology of XFR (Extended Frequency Range) can dynamically change frequency cores, but details about the specifics of its work yet. In addition, the slide indicates that there is a 20 MB memory cache of the second and third levels (total). Speaking separately on the L3 cache processor, 16 MB.
Technology XFR will complement two other: Pure Power and Precision Boost. The first is responsible for ensuring that each time the processor core worked with the least possible tension, keeping a certain frequency. The second works “reverse” manner. Boost precision ensures that when a certain voltage frequency was highest. All this should give processors Ryzen good energy efficiency and performance per watt ratio. Step frequency is 25 Mhz.
hopefully AMD tonight will reveal more details about the updates.
