    AMD reportedly finished testing some of its first “Zen” micro-architecture CPU prototypes, and concluded that they “meet all expectations,” with “no significant bottlenecks found” in its design. This should mean that AMD’s “Zen” chips should be as competitive with Intel chips as it set them out to be. The company is planning to launch its first client CPUs based on the “Zen” micro-architecture in 2016, based on its swanky new AM4 socket, with DDR4 memory and integrated PCIe (a la APUs). Zen sees AMD revert to the large, monolithic core design, from its “Bulldozer” multi-core module design with a near doubling of number-crunching machinery per-core, compared to its preceding architecture.

    I had heard more like 400 but you have more of an inside track than I do.
