Intel has just launched its new high-end Haswell-E platform, but what is AMD doing? Well, according to a recent interview with Bloomberg, AMD won't be releasing a new micro-architecture until 2016, with any CPU or APU products released between now and then based on current architecture.

AMD CEO, Rory Read, talked with Bloomberg, but didn't reveal any information on future microarchitecture, but he did say that the hardware coming out next year will be based on existing architecture, and won't be much better than what AMD has on the market now. Read said: "AMD engineers are now proving they can deliver new designs on time, something that didn't happen in the past."

In 2015, we can expect AMD to release new APUS that will be based on the low-power Puma+ and high-performance Steamroller architecture. Both of these architectures aren't expected to deliver much additional performance, but we should expect lowered power consumption and heat output.
