AMD's Zen architecture is expected to last four years

AMD's Zen architecture is expected to last four years, with plans to offer major architectural improvements with every generation, saying that "Zen is going to be tock, tock, tock".



Read more on AMD's future plans for the Zen architecture.

That's good news. Now you can buy a new Cpu and not expect it to be replaced within 12 months

Soon I will look up at Vega, shining bright in the night sky and I will be in touch with my inner Zen.

I think the most imporant part of all will be the mobos. If I know AMD they won't keep switching sockets like Intel did from Sandy - Kaby they will just leave it the same.

So if that´s gonna be the case then we´re gonna be with Zen for four years and the same socket, can AMD keep against Intel like that?

Personally if they can keep the same socket over 4 years its going to make upgrading so much easier with better choice for end users upgrade cpu, upgrade mobo or both at the same time. This can only be a good thing for many of us on tight budgets.
