    This image was recently displayed to investors apparently showing the speed of the coming 14nm Zen processor.

    Orochi refers to the FX-8350 series and Summit relates to Zen.

    I find that scale a bit hard to believe but thanks for the heads up.

    Well they did go from 32nm to 14nm so maybe it isn't far off perhaps? What do you think?

    I don;t know, going from 32mn to 14nm and the difference of 4 years worth of RnD more likely means they'll get that performance. I think the original article does mention per watt, which makes sense with a die shrink. Add onto that new processes for how the cores work. May happen.

    Just the nanometer change alone could herald big changes but until we see those benchmarks it's all guesswork.. :)

    Looks like users will have to wait a bit longer before accessing Zen:
    Inventory issues as Intel and AMD delay CPU releases
