AMD Bristol Ridge tech specs published online

AMD’s upcoming Zen processors will be the most interesting chips that will come out of the US company but until they appear we will have to do with the so-called Bristol Ridge APUs. The chips are expected this spring and little by little we get to know things about them – the preliminary specs of the chips have been published online. Take a look here:

The Bristol Ridge APUs will combine old and new technology in one chip – they will be based on AMD’s current Excavator architecture and will feature integrated GCN 1.2 graphics processing cores but will feature the new desktop AM4 and mobile FP4 sockets as well as support for the latest DDR4 memory. The creation of AM4 infrastructure will ease both AMD and AMD users since the upcoming high-end Zen chips will use the same socket so if you purchase an AM4 desktop motherboard with a Bristol Ridge APU today you will be able to upgrade to Zen tomorrow. In addition to all this Bristol Ridge will be made on the more advanced 28 nm production process instead of on 32 nm.

The Bristol Ridge story is in development so we will update you when we have more information.
