Keep an eye out for Steamroller, but don't hold your breath.
It's actually a little higher than 10% to 15%... 24% overall lower power consumption(RCM)((4+ GHz while ~3.5 range can see 30% lower power). I have also seen no signs of increased performance per core with the same clock based on theoretical upscaling from Trinity.
<-- It hasn't been talked about even though this design is already in Orochi B2, so I am not sure if Orochi Revision C(x) would get the 8 Gbit/s interconnect.
