AMD 400 Series Chipsets Appear at PCI-SIG

It was back in September rumors appeared stating AMD would release its Zen+ CPUs and accompanying 400 series chipsets early next year, and now we are seeing more information to support this. The AMD 400 Series chipset has been spotted at PCI-SIG, the group responsible for developing and maintaining the PCIe standard.

This listing does not give us much information, but we do see it was added on December 19. Also its codename is Promontory, which was the same name codename as the current 300 series chipsets. There has been a fair amount of speculation about what will come with this new chipset to differentiate it from what is available now, but little is known. The expectations for the Zen+ CPUs though is higher clocker speeds at least, thanks to a shift to a more advanced 12 nm process, from the current 14 nm process, with some hoping for a bump, however small, to IPC. As Zen+ is to be a refresh of the current CPUs, the enhancements should not be too significant, at least not compared to what Zen2 will likely offer, whenever that launches.
