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.December 10, 2015 at 9:42 am #89785lordofwarParticipant

It was time to change the old CPUs, were not good enoughNovember 29, 2016 at 9:04 pm #93442killjoyjimMember
I hear they will be around $300.November 30, 2016 at 3:10 pm #93450Sir-diealotParticipant

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