AMD To Focus on “Generation” With CPU Branding

AMD will really be focusing on the “generation” of their upcoming 2016 CPUs and APUs when it comes to branding. And it looks like AMD will really be playing a game with Intel as well. In 2016 AMD’s FX-series CPUs and A-series APUs will be the company’s “6th Generation”. This is counting “Stars”, “Bulldozer”, “Piledriver”, “Steamroller”, and “Excavator” driving its past 5 generations.


This of course could make things a little interesting as Intel’s upcoming Core “Skylake” processor family is also the “6th Generation” core processor family. So they are playing a little naming game with Intel in hopes that many people will think the processors from both companies have the same features.
