AMD teased its Summit Ridge CPU at Computex 2016, or as it's more commonly known, the Zen core. The vendor revealed a few details about the upcoming high-end core, with the Zen CPU featuring 8 cores and 16 threads. Zen will be integrated in AMD's AM4 desktop platform, a return to the enthusiast segment for the vendor on the CPU side of things.

AMD will be sampling Zen to its OEM partners in the coming weeks and months, and we should get a first look at consumer hardware running the CPU sometime next year. Zen should offer performance on a scale similar to Intel's Broadwell-E processors.
