AMD CEO Lisa Su talked about how AMD Zen is a multi-generational architecture and that it will be relevant in the future. She also talked about how AMD Zen is scalable and we wondered what the next thing would be. After Summit Ridge we will be getting AMD Pinnacle Ridge.
AMD Ryzen 7 series CPU are already out and later on we will be getting the AMD Ryzen 5 CPUs for budget users and after that AMD will be releasing entry level AMD Ryzen 3 CPUs.
It will be interesting to see what kind of performance these upcoming CPUs will give as compared to Intel counterparts.
AMD Pinnacle Ridge is the code name so we do not know what the actual name will be but looking at the performance of AMD Ryzen CPUs it is safe to say that AMD Pinnacle Ridge will not offer too much of an improvement over current generation CPUs.
It is safe to say that the performance increase will be something between 10-15%. This is speculation and I could turn out to be wrong, so take this with a grain of salt.
Keeping all these things in mind, it could be possible that the upcoming AMD Pinnacle Ridge will be a better-optimized version of what we currently have.
There are rumors that we could be seeing these CPUs hit the market early 2018. It is interesting to see that AMD is taking this very seriously and it is good news for people that have bought an AM4 motherboard, knowing that they will have an upgrade path down the road.
Let us know what you think about the performance increase of AMD Pinnacle Ridge as compared to AMD’s current Ryzen CPUs.
