AMD hasn't been competing with Intel on the CPU field for quite a while, but its upcoming Zen architecture might be a big change. According to industry insiders, AMD's internal tests on Zen CPUs have met their own expectations, with no significant bottlenecks.

The news came from a user on the RealWorldTech forums by the name of 'Lurker', who claims that he knows someone at AMD who helped design the L2 cache for the Zen chip. The sole purpose behind the Zen architecture is to competitively compete against Intel, which is something AMD hasn't done for quite sometime.

 

AMD has reportedly not finalized the specifications of its clock speeds and TDP of the Zen chips, but we should expect a large 40% jump on instructions per clock over the previous Bulldozer architecture.
