For more than a year, information on AMD’s next-generation CPU architecture, codenamed Zen, has tantalized the company’s fans — and those who simply want a more effective competitor against Intel. Now, the first concrete details have begun to appear. And if they’re accurate, the next-generation chip could pack a wallop.

Zen is the same designer who did the original FX so it should smell of win.

I bet the 16 core one will be £800 or more though, but will wait to see what happens. Do want, though.

I hope this is a beast. As much as I use Intel and nVidia, I can't help but feel bad for AMD but a decent CPU would see me give it a try.

I'd love to go back to AMD cps.

Loved my old Athlons and tbh, although clock for clock my 4.8GHz 8320 couldn't match my 4690k, I had much more fun tweaking and messing around with that than this intel stuff.

Do we know whether DX12 will improve things for the older AMD stuff like the 8320?

Only problem is, is that's a Server grade CPU. This is apparently what the Enthusiast/APU Market is going to get and if it's true, AMD are screwed:
