AMD’s new Zen CPU architecture will last until 2020 and beyond

While Intel has made some noise at CES 2017 with a host of PCs using its seventh-generation Core processors, AMD hasn’t been sitting still. With its introduction of its Ryzen CPU, AMD has countered Intel’s best with some excellent performance of its own.

Ryzen represents a more aggressive improvement over AMD’s previous architecture, Excavator, with the new Zen chips offering a full 40 percent improvement. That’s much more significant than Intel’s more conservative improvements with its latest generation of CPUs, which focused on smaller performance increases and better mobile battery life. This is an important accomplishment for AMD, because apparently, it’s going to have to last for at least four years, as PCWorld reports.
