Now that the big news in the CPU community is growing, AMD should be grateful. AMD released its new Zen processor architecture to the PC Master Race community and achieved great success. Based on Zen's
, AMD provides us with Ryzen series desktop processors. Designed for all kinds of users, from budget gamers to high-performance frame pushers, it is very popular.
On this basis, AMD also released Threadripper. Ryzen uses dual CPU sockets and uses two processors on a chip on a single motherboard, giving enthusiastic users a large number of threads and cores.
If this isn't enough, AMD released a quick processor update called Zen +.
This leads us to release the next Zen update soon: Zen 2.
When AMD released Ryzen, it was a critical moment in the market. It has dominated the CPU market for almost the last ten years, and Intel has market control over the improved frequency and launch cost of the processor.
AMD has always had a more affordable processor choice than Intel, but their performance and speed can't keep up with Intel in terms of gaming, and they are also lagging behind in terms of market share.
Before the release of Ryzen in 2017, AMD’s previous processors were based on the Excavator architecture and used 28nm transistors that are now considered large. Now we have Ryzen, which is manufactured on an architecture using 14nm transistors.
Smaller transistors are always a good thing, as they will cause multiple upgrades. On the one hand, it will require less current to power it, which means it is more energy efficient. The
transistor switches faster, enabling faster and more efficient current and power transfer. It also allows the CPU to be manufactured with fewer materials, resulting in cheaper and more sustainable processors.
When AMD released Zen+, they provided us with four updates to the original Zen and based on a smaller 12nm architecture. So far, this has given us 2600 (X) and 2700 (X).
Let's compare Zen to Zen+ and see what magnification we get so that we can use it to measure what we want to see in Zen 2.
Looking at the chart, we can see that the speed of Zen + has been greatly improved over the first generation. Three of the four Zen + processors reach speeds above 4.0 GHz
. The biggest performance improvement we see is Ryzen 7 2700X, which has a higher base and increased clock speed. We also purchased Ryzen at a better price at launch. In addition, AMD fulfilled its promise because the Zen+ series still uses the AM4 socket, allowing forward and backward compatibility. This allows you to update the processor or motherboard independently instead of updating both at the same time to match the socket as in the past.
This brings consumers three wins: higher clock speed, better price, and compatibility.

Zen 2 will be based on AMD's new 7nm architecture. This is almost half the size of the current Zen + and provides us with the smallest architecture desktop processor on the market.
This means that compared to Intel, AMD will have a series of processors with a higher number of cores and threads, comparable speeds and smaller architecture sizes.
This is good news for many reasons. So far, AMD has delivered on its promise of a series of processors that are easier to upgrade and more affordable. Their success ensures that they are also a legitimate threat to Intel, which means that Intel will respond with its own high-quality progress.
provides greater flexibility when designing game systems. Not only can you see better performance while gaming, but those of us who use our gaming system for media creation (such as streaming) will also reduce the load.
higher threads and cores, faster speeds, and a smaller architecture to help deal with all of this, I hope this means playing these videos faster.
Personally, I would like to see more Ryzen processors clocked over 4Ghz and more power efficient.
I would also like AMD to talk more about updating their APU product line. They have earned a reputation for being affordable and easy to use, so it's great to see them continue to use the new APU.
Looking at AMD's approach so far, I'm sure it won't disappoint.
Intel and AMD are ushering in a new era of processor and system flexibility, and this will only benefit users (of course, unless they create intelligent AI, but this is like an entirely different department, in reality).
So how would you choose? Will you upgrade to Zen 2 or will you insist and wait for Intel to release its 7nm processors in time? Let us know your decision!
