AMD Zen benchmarks leak, point to potent performance against Intel, huge gains over Piledriver

AMD Zen benchmarks leak, point to potent performance against Intel, huge gains over Piledriver Now, thanks to some leaked benchmarks and sleuthing at WCCFTech, we’ve got our first glance at how AMD’s Zen engineering samples perform against other hardware in Ashes of the Singularity.This last point is extremely significant, because it’s common for prototype chips and engineering samples to offer less performance than the final version.

What to expect when you’re expecting AMD Zen

What to expect when you’re expecting AMD Zen While the leaks haven’t been confirmed as genuine, it was interesting to see the conversation around Zen and AMD’s expected performance level.Then, at an event on Wednesday, AMD showed some demos of Zen running clock-for-clock against Intel’s 5960X.

A state of Zen: AMD unveils new architectural details on its latest CPU core

A state of Zen: AMD unveils new architectural details on its latest CPU core One CPU complex (CCX) contains four cores, 2MB of L2 cache (512KB per core), and 8MB of L3 cache.That means AMD’s highest-end consumer Zen contains eight cores and 16MB of L3 cache in total, split into 2x8MB chunks.
