New Horizon will be an exclusive preview of the enthusiast/high-end Zen, which is reportedly priced at $499 and combats against Intel's Core i7-5960X, which costs $999. The new enthusiast SKU of the yet-to-be-branded Zen CPU will feature 8 cores and 16 threads of CPU power - the biggest leap for an AMD processor in many, many years.

AMD teases: "Join AMD at New Horizon on 12/13 at 3pm CST for an exclusive advance preview of our new "Zen" CPU ahead of its 2017 Q1 release. New Horizon is AMD's fan-focused event, designed to engage our most dedicated customers. As well as a hands-on preview of the power of "Zen", attendees will be able to talk to the AMD minds behind the chip itself and grab expert gaming advice from eSports & Evil Geniuses legend PPD. The event is hosted by industry veteran Geoff Keighley, who'll introduce special guests throughout the day".
