AMD: watch DOOM using on a Summit Ridge Zen processor

June 17, 2016 - running watch

AMD has published a video display id Software’s DOOM (2016) video diversion using on one of a arriving Summit Ridge chips. These Summit Ridge CPUs are of sold seductiveness to PC enthusiasts as they are a initial to underline AMD’s Zen architecture. From what we know of a ‘totally new’ CPU design so far, from AMD display slides and son on, a organisation looks set to yield a 40 per cent IPC benefit over prior gen Excavator core formed chip designs.

DOOM, a iconic gaming reboot, was expelled a small over a month ago and comes with a endorsed complement spec that includes an Intel Core i7-3770/AMD FX-8350 or better, 8GB of RAM, and an Nvidia GTX 970 4GB/AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB or better. HEXUS looked some-more closely into what kind of selection would yield PC users beguiling gameplay, and best crash for sire during several shade resolutions, in a special dedicated article following a recover of a game.

AMD’s behind a scenes E3 2v016 video is hosted by Louis Castro, one of a firm’s Lead System Engineers. Castro informs us that Zen core formed chips have been undergoing endless contrast in a labs for; complement integration, underline enabling, and personification DOOM. Panning around a AMD contrast trickery we find an AMD tech man blustering DOOM monsters, while sat behind a operation of shelves built with tech equipment. The diversion appears to play really uniformly though there’s not most else we can hoard from such a YouTube video – even when played behind during a limit resolution/quality in ull screen. Importantly, we have no information about what GPU was powering a DOOM player’s machine.

So a new AMD video doesn’t give us a lot of information though it’s good to see Zen being entirely tested on camera – and in DOOM. A new Cinebench discriminate exam revealed some-more earnest Zen opening indications as it was shown in a draft to offer twice a opening of a FX-8350 CPU (Orochi) that is partial of a central DOOM endorsed complement spec list. In associated news progressing this week HEXUS news lonesome speak of AMD readying a 32-core, 64-thread Zen-based Opteron chip.

We wish to see AMD launch and start to sell Zen processors by a finish of 2016.
