The new generation top of the line Zen chipsets are reportedly being developed for HP and Lenovo devices
Sources claim AMD (Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.) is readying up to introduce a whole new line-up of chips. The new processor Zen chipsets will be presented at the upcoming CES 2017.
The source claims the recent discounts on the existing chipsets is to prepare for the arrival of new chip sets. Currently central processing units (CPU) chips by AMD include the FX 8300, FX 6300 and FX 4300.
The upgraded processor chips will be compatible with the Bristol Ridge-powered PCs. The new chips would also be inserted in PCs without changing the entire setup of the computer.
Previously the arrival of a new chip line-up was hinted at by the AMD Director of Commercial Business Development John Hampton. In an interview Hampton stated that their company wants to keep working with PCs as long as possible. So basically there will always be a need to upgrade their chips.
It seems AMD is most interested in doing business with computers made for the Bristol Ridge Pro chips. HP and Lenovo devices are specifically known for their compatibility with these chips.
Similarly there have been hints that the new seventh generation chips will feature faster performance without taking up too much of power. Let us assume if the new line up of chips is a 65-watt Pro chip which only takes up 30 percent of the power compared to the previous generation of chips.
The CPU performance of the new generation chips will increase by 14 percent and will be capable of running the 4K videos. AMD will also unveil its new class of AM4 motherboards at CES 2017.
The upcoming CES (Consumer Electronics Show) will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, with all the events taking place between 3rd till 8th of January, 2017.
