Zen 2 – AMD’s new architecture should be 15% faster


Zen 2 will appear next year. It is possible that it will be a really significant improvement for Ryzen systems and for Threadripper.

As it became known, Zen 2 will not only be more energy efficient, but will also receive a significant, in fact 15 percent increase in IPC (Instructions Per Cycle).

The 7-nanometer Zen 2 should catch up to fellow Core Intel and even outpace the competition, taking advantage of the benefits of a greater number of better interacting cores.

If all the information concerning the innovations is confirmed, AMD can quickly overtake Intel again. All the more, next year AMD Ryzen has all chances to be much faster than the current, second generation.
