In a few days, specifically on May 16, AMD will reveal more information about their new architectures. According to rumors, the company will unveil a new roadmap this year, and will announce its future plans.
AMD Zen + and Navi
It is the case of Navi, the architecture that will succeed VEGA. At the moment it is only known that it will arrive in the 2018, to offer greater scalability along with the use of a new generation memory.
We will also know the details of the first revision of the architecture of the processor family AMD Ryzen. Named AMD Zen +. An improved architecture planned for the year 2019 and manufactured by GlobalFoundries. Gray hawk, is its code name, and it makes the leap to 7nm.
What we do know, outside of speculation or hearsay, is that Vega will have a structure similar to Fiji. This has been uncovered by a patch for the graphics drivers of AMD, in the operating system Linux. I remind you that Fiji, is the silicon of the series Radeon R9 Fury. Thanks to this patch it is known that VEGA 10 It has four shading engines. And that 16 will be the number of calculation units GCN (CUs) by shading motor. With these data, waiting to confirm other changes, the 4096 Stream Processors. Which, positions VEGA 10 two generations ahead of those of Fiji. Added to manufacturing improvements under a lithograph of 14 nm, could make the GPU with much higher clock frequencies.
AMD Ryzen, new BIOS update
Finally, the AMD Ryzen, get a new enhancement when new code is released for memory support DDR4 RAM. The new micro-code AGESA 220.127.116.11, Add twenty new registers on the memory controller integrated in the platform Summit Ridge, to improve performance in memory kits Ddr4 platform-friendly Intel. With the new update AGESA will allow processors AMD Ryzen take advantage of increased memory frequencies RAM along with the tightest latencies. An advance to stabilize the platform, which adds more performance, aims to solve the problems linked to overclocking of the memory.
