AMD has unveiled the 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture, which will move the company's server and desktop processors next year.
Chips based on Zen 2 will be able to perform one and a half times more operations per cycle than their predecessors. In addition, they will receive hardware protection against some types of hacker attacks and a 256-bit floating point block.
The first solutions based on the new architecture will be AMD's Epyc processors, designed for use in servers and with up to 64 cores. They will be followed by AMD Ryzen 3000 series consumer chips.
