AMD Announces New Horizon Event to Unveil Zen

AMD’s new processor architecture, Zen, is expected for release early next year, and the company has announced that it will officially unveil its new technology in an event next month. A special media event, dubbed New Horizon, has been scheduled for 13th December and will be an “exclusive advanced preview” of its new Zen-powered processors. While New Horizon, hosted by Geoff Keighley, itself will be attended by press, other interested parties will be able to view a livesteam of the event, which starts at 15:00 CST, via the AMD website.

“Watch New Horizon, hosted by Geoff Keighley, for an exclusive advance preview of our new “Zen” CPU ahead of its 2017 Q1 launch,” AMD says. “See eSports & Evil Geniuses legend PPD put “Zen” through its paces. There’ll be appearances from special guests and giveaways.”

“This is the first time the public will be able to try it themselves and see what it’s capable of. If you’re serious about gaming, this is an event you do not want to miss,” the company adds.

According to recent reports, the first Zen CPUs will go on sale mid-January 2017, with the top-end SR7 8 core rumoured to be priced at $499, while the standard SR7 could cost as little as $350.
