Leaked specifications of AMD Zen CPU engineering samples

AMD Zen CPU specification leaked online. The Zen will come in quad-core and octa-core variants for the AM4, and for server side, Zen will have 24 and 32 core CPUs for SP3.

These engineering samples are set as revision A0, making these the first set of engineering samples to leave AMD if these leaks are correct. The 4-core variant to have a TDP of 65W and the 8-core 16 threads variant come in TDP of 95W with clock speeds of 2.8GHz to 3.2GHz. These CPUs will throttle down to 550MHz at idle allowing these CPUs to draw as little as 2.5-5W at idle.


  4-core 8-core 24-core 32-core
Socket AM4 AM4 SP3 SP3
Boost Clock Speed 3.2GHz 3.2GHz 2.75GHz 2.9GHz
Base Clock Speed 2.8GHz 2.8GHz
TDP 65W 95W 150W 180W
L2 Cache 2MB 4MB 12MB 16MB
L3 Cache 8MB 16MB 48MB 64MB

Typically, early engineering samples of CPUs has lower clock speeds than their final retail versions, so this current clock speeds not final and it is likely that AMD’s Zen CPUs will run at higher clock speeds when it releases.

As everything indicates that, we may see AMD’s Zen CPUs by the end of 2016 or early 2017.
