"Zen" Core Architecture
High Performance and Efficiency
AMD's high-performance x86 Core "Zen" architecture helps delivers >52%
improvement in instructions per clock cycle over the previous generation AMD
core, without increasing power.
The "Zen" core is an all-new "clean sheet" x86 processor design that combines
high-throughput and low-power design methodologies to create a balanced and
versatile architecture right at home in the desktop, laptop, datacenter, and
Performance and Efficiency for Next-Gen Applications
Cloud computing, enterprise productivity, immersive visual experiences,
gaming, and data security open up new frontiers - and demand more computing
performance with improved energy efficiency. AMD engineers designed the "Zen"
core to meet those demands with a high-performance execution engine, large
caches, and powerful multi-threading capabilities.
"Zen" Microarchitecture Details
"Zen" cores are designed to efficiently use available micro-architectural
resources for improved compute performance. Compared to AMD's previous
architecture, three-tier cache system and pre-fetch algorithms enable higher
throughput in the cache and execution engines.
