Since i feel like AMD is heading towards the lead of HPC (high performance computing) somewhere 2019, it might be fun to see what they litterally can do with current possibilities.
My speculation about this whole subject, please take this with a bucket or 2 of salt!
Half 2019: Zen2 (+12% IPC) & Radeon Navi (+15% IPC) arrival
Mainstream APU desktop (4-8 cores):
Mainstream desktop (4-16 cores): (Teased at CES 2019)
High end desktop (16-40 cores):
Server (16-64 cores):
November 25, 2018:
Initial post for Zen2
Update 27 May 2019:
After the AMD Computex keynote, turns out i was a bit optimistic in the end regarding clock speeds per watt, but conservative ragrding instructions per clock.
I was correct on the desktop date though: teased at CES 2019.
Update 14 June 2019:
Updated the 16 core real numbers, after the E3 rewveal. seems i was just 100MHz off in the end with the same TDP.
Also added the real 6 core CPU data provided by AMD.
