AMD Zen High-end X370 Chipsets Will Be Launched At CES 2017
AMD Zen is a highly anticipated product and this year it was delayed to 2017. Although it has been a long wait, 2017 is now just around the corner and we have news that the AMD Zen high-end X370 chipsets will be launched at CES 2017. Bristol Ridge-based desktop processors have just been released last month and to make a smooth transition the corresponding high-end X370 chipsets will be launched in January next year.
AMD has also started making the adjustment in pricing to the previous generation processors and this includes the Vishera CPUs for socket AM3 + and the Kaveri APUs for FM2 + socket. We will start seeing the drop in price in the next couple of weeks as the high-end X370 chipsets come closer. It is unlikely that Zen-based products will be hitting the market before February. According to supply chain sources:
Sources from motherboard players also noted that AMD’s performance has started to improve since early 2016. In addition to stable income from its semi-custom solutions, CEO Lisa Su has also been pushing for more profits in China by licensing its patents, selling its testing and packaging plants, and forming joint ventures.

Zen-based processors will be made by Globalfoundries using the 14nm FinFET process. Zen-based high-performance desktop processors will be the first to come out. High-end X370 chipsets will come out on CES 2017 and the B350 and A320 will follow shortly after that.
We will soon see what the AMD Zen high-end X370 chipsets have to offer.
