AMD CORE Evolution, Is something Big coming?

AMD's CORE EVOLUTION

AMD CORE Evolution, Is something Big coming.  

Core is Back!

While we continure to hear more and more about the future of Intel's CPUs, AMD have not been as open. Without any recent leaks, press releases or even slight speculation, all us enthusiasts are left to do is wonder.

Now AMD are rising out of the woodwork saying, CORE is back! There is no doubt that AMD are Talking about a New CPU, but before we discuss this, lets have a look at AMD's Prologue.

 

All the video says is this;

"In your PC, applications battle for resources. While powerful CORE hardware fights to maintain the balance. But the war never ends. And the applications only get stronger. Battles may be lost. But heroes will EVOLVE. CORE IS BACK!"

This video could mean many things, AMD could be working on a new CORE architecture, abandoning the Bulldozer arc of CPUs entirely. This could be true with the total lack of talk regarding newer iterations of Bulldozer past Excavator. The focus on the word CORE also suggests a move from AMD's "modular" design to a new AMD "CORE" architecture 

That route is probably not what this trailer is referring too given that AMD said "EVOLUTION", implying that it is based on what came before. So this video is likely referring to their upcoming Carrizo APUs, but the future beyond that remains a total mystery.

The term "CORE IS BACK" suggests a large gain in performance from AMD, while this could just be marketing hype. I hope AMD can pull enough core performance to return to higher end competitiveness, because we desperately crave it.  

Remember guys this video is marketed as a prologue and more information is coming. You can expect us at OC3D to continue to deliver on this story as it develops.

Everything has been quiet on the AMD CPU front for a while. Now AMD are teasing a Core Evolution, Is AMD ready for the big leagues again?

That 1 minute video said exactly ZERO about their product, Useless, Probably another boring mid range product.Quote

Ever heard of teaser trailers?

When I first saw this I thought it could be a new line of cpus but in retrospect its probably something like an Athlon 750k or something as Core pretty much says 'Basic' in my mind. Again AMD's roadmap doesn't really give any indication about this CPU. Probably FM2+ if it is to do with cpus. AM3+ is really dead, even despite the recent new motherboards.

Then again the enterprise roadmap shows something new 2014/2015 so maybe there is a tiny chance that this could be 100% new.

Good to see AMD's marketing department at it again. GG fellas, I hope that nostalgia is working for you.Quote

Was just some crappy CGI and very bad eurotrash music lol

This video makes more sense than AMDs -

They asked an 8 year old what he think would be cool. That's what they do every time. I can't even watch the entire thing without feeling embarrassed for them.Quote

I really do hope AMD has something good in the works for the next year or two, becouse I'd love to see a market where AMD and Intel have fierce competition in more than just the low end.

Hopefully as AMD can use smaller die sizes, and improve their designs they can give us something truly great, top i5 levels at least.Quote

What I'd like to see is true hardware! Real cores something that can stand up to Intel, at least then we could have honest grudge matches Core for core, Herz for herz, Volt for Volt. I've said this before but now with Intel found guilty of merchandiser fixing and held to account AMD profits should rise giving us better future hardware.Quote

Intel's advantage is far too great for AMD to catch up with a billion dollars. They pretty much have to double their performance per core.Quote

Let hope the console and mobile market hits off big this Christmas then, would be a big sales boost. Will just have to see what AMDs annual stock shares are in December, as at the moment we've only seen a small rise since the court ruling.Quote

AMD has another great problem: it's fabless.

This means zero priority for them because foundries obviously prefer to produce ARM chips and GPU chips ( and others ) before high performance-cpu optimized nodes... you know, money.Quote

AMD will have hard time because most of the performance users lost intrest in amd's perormance lineup because of how overhyped fx lineup was and how poorly it performed. Almost all of the newish rigs on this forum i see have intels cpu, the exeption being barnsleys octoboxQuote

Seriously though AMD need to fire there PR and advertising guy's...i am clueless as to what this 'core advert' is.Quote

Not really newish anymore, is it.Quote

Mine is over a year old now I think. Its a shame I built it for streaming (an AMD strong point) then moved away to an area with crappy internet .

AMD cpus are on par with intel on a few aspects. Sadly those aspects are either already dominated by Apple products (some adobe products love cores)or aren't major programs.Quote

I wouldn't get too excited about the video. It's probably something to do with the new Carrizo APU, and that's not going to set the world on fire either. Late 2015 or early 2016 is the earliest you're talking about for a truly new CPU from AMD.

Hopefully I'm wrong, but I doubt I am.

$450m over about 4/5 years is the quoted R&D spend from some AMD VP (can't remember the name) to develop a new x86 core from the ground up from initial design all the way through to release. So if they had a spare $1bn in the bank (which they don't), it's possible for them to catch up on performance if they started a new development, which they likely did a few years back. Catching Intel on perf/W is going to be much harder though.

Anyway that $1bn fine Intel paid (if that's what you're referring to) went to the fat-cats in Brussels not to AMD sadly, and not only that it was already paid back in 2009 or whenever Intel initially lost that court case.Quote

Could be. They were pretty vague about it but it COULD mean a refit of something like the Phenom or maybe Athlon? Probably something along those lines or they could be referring to their new Carrizo APUs? I haven't really read up on them yet but that could be it.Quote
