New CPU from AMD, Ryzen
AMD just showed their new high end desktop CPUs based on the new Zen core architecture. Named as “Ryzen” by the name of the cores and the fact that AMD is moving towards to high performance CPUs, these processors are getting ready to be used in Zen-based processor product families. AMD also announced SenseMI technology, a set of sensing, adaptation and learning technologies embedded within the AMD Ryzen processor. SenseMI technology combines architectural, platform, productivity and computing advancements to meet the compelling needs of gamers and computer enthusiasts.
AMD SenseMI technology, which is one of the main factors in achieving more than 40 percent performance increase per hour of AMD, consists of 5 components: • Pure Power – 100 integrated sensors that provide accuracy up to millivolts, a single operating temperature range providing an optimum voltage and frequency, and minimum energy consumption. • Precision Boost – Built-in sensors that monitor intelligent logic clock speed up to a thousand times a second with 25 MHz stages to optimize the stage. Extended Frequency Range (XFR) – Increases the Precision Boost frequency to increase XFR performance when the system experiences an increase in cooling capacity. • Neural Net Prediction – An artificial intelligence neural network that predicts the future path of an application based on past movements. • Smart Prefetch – A complex learning algorithm that understands the needs of an application and follows the behavior of the software in advance that prepares the data. AMD, during the “New Horizon” event, introduced the Ryzen desktop processor with 8-core, 16-track 3.4 GHz performance by showing unprecedented demos. Here are some of the demos AMD has shown for digital content producers, VR pioneers, gaming and technology enthusiasts: • The first demo of the Vega GPU to be presented in the near future will be played with Ryzen and Star Wars Battlefront – Rogue One with 4K resolution, fluently and high FPS values. • Blender and Handbrake based image processing and video codec demo showed that the new CPU has reached or passed on to the Intel Core i7 6900K processor in many complex and creative tasks. While Core i7 6900K with 140 watts of TDP value run at stock speed and boost of 95 watt TDP-worthy, Ryzen processor was running at 3.4 Ghz without boost to draw performance efficiency per watt of the processor. • Ryzen with a frequency of 3.4 GHz is able to run Battlefield 1 at 4k with the help of two Nvidia Titan X GPUs. The Ryzen comparison with i7 6900K is based on FPS rates. AMD Ryzen desktop processors are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2017, and laptop computer processors are expected to be available globally in the second half of 2017.
