AMD Zen may feature up to 32 cores

AMD’s Zen processor continues to be a hot topic among hardware enthusiasts – the chip, which is expected to arrive by the end of this year, comes loaded with tons of hope for much higher performance levels than these of the current AMD FX generation, levels that may even make it competitive with Intel’s newest chips. Apart from performance, though, AMD will also bet on the number of cores Zen will come with so there will be surprises for sure.

It turns out that the future Zen processors may offer up to 32 processing cores on a single die, which is much more than what Intel has. Of course we are talking about server processors here but even there AMD seems to have a chance at winning in the numbers game – Intel has 18-core processors in the server segment as of now and Intel’s next generation will bring no more than 28 cores. Add the promised 40 per cent performance boost compared to the current Bulldozer generation and AMD may have a winner at hand. By the way the rumored 32-core processor is codenamed Zeppelin.

AMD Zen will be made on 14 nm technology by Samsung and likely TSMC and will work with DDR4 memory that can reach 256 GB per channel. All in all Zen looks very promising – let’s hope that AMD won’t disappoint us again this time.
