Now the FX processor has been AMD, everything must be a new generation of Zen architecture come out again, the latter has no need to say that the AMD is more important, as a strategic project for many years, the Zen processor this time can not be defeated. Zen processor is the only way to make people suffering from a little late, to wait until the 2016 Q4 quarter to come out. But now there is a good news, Zen processors may have to wait a year, but AMD next year is likely to launch a new AM4 platform APU, using the APU Excavator Carrizo architecture, increase DDR4 memory support, and the AM4 interface is compatible with the future of the Zen processor.
AMD new generation APU exposure! The new interface is coming.
OC3D broke the news that in March 2016 AMD may launch AM4 slot of the new motherboard and APU, prior to the release of the Zen processor. However, they say that the AM4 processor may still be Steamroller architecture, which is not possible, AMD really want to launch AM4 platform, CPU should upgrade to the Cariizo level of Excavator excavator architecture, GPU should be the core of the GCN, it will not exceed the size of the current APU Kaveri 512 stream processor unit.
Of course, the new platform will also support DDR4 memory, after all, Carrizo is now the APU AMD derivative version has supported DDR4 memory, this is not a problem.
Originally referred to the original AM4 slot is called FM3, which was launched for APU, but now the AM4 slot will be unified FX and APU processor, next year AMD new products will be the transition to AM4 platform, which means that if you are ready to enter a AM4 slot APU first play, the last year, the end of the Zen processor can also be seamless upgrade.
Taking into account the high end of the AMD chip group for many years did not upgrade, we can also have more expectations on the motherboard AM4 platform, such as the original USB 3 or even USB 3.1 (AMD access to the of the USB 3.1 license), supports more PCI-E channel, enhance the PCI-E hard drive, etc..
