According to Wccftech, AMD’s 7nm Navi GPU isn’t the only graphics solution it is working on: a new team within the Radeon Technology Group has been assembled for a new project dubbed "Zen." This initiative was spearheaded by CEO Lisa Su herself, who has tasked the team to significantly improve the clock speeds of current designs and push them to be more power efficient.

The new team has been put in place to inject the company’s upcoming GPU products with a dose of engineering steroids so to speak and leapfrog the company’s original GPU roadmap. It’s tasked with bringing expertise from the original Zen CPU project to the GPU side as well as to innovate in two key areas in an effort to make upcoming GPU products more competitive than originally planned.
