Zen refresh is a planned microarchitecture being developed by AMD as a successor to Zen. Zen refresh is expected to be succeeded by Zen 2.


Zen refresh is set to succeed Zen in the future, sometimes around 2018. Zen refresh will feature the same core as Zen but will take advantage of the new GlobalFoundries' 12nm proces to deliver higher clock speeds and improved power consumption.
