Enthusiasts and gamers are eagerly awaiting the next generation of Ryzen processors based on the Zen 4 architecture. However, server folks are really excited about Zen 4 too. AMD's EPYC "Genoa" family of processors are looking to be a big step up over the current "Milan" generation. Twitter leaker @yuuki_ans has... Read more...
Sometime later this year, AMD will release a new round EPYC server CPUs based on its Zen 4 architecture, codenamed Genoa (EPYC 9000 series). While we stand by and wait for the next-gen chips to manifest, photos of engineering samples and AMD's accompanying massive SP5 socket have found their way to the web, giving us... Read more...
If you thought AMD would only talk about dollars and cents at its Financial Analyst Day event, think again. Sure, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su shared plenty of data on TAM growth opportunities and ongoing investments, but it’s all predicated on a wide-ranging portfolio of compute and graphics products for both consumer and...

If you, like this author, are focused more on the consumer side of things, you may not know that AMD's EPYC server CPUs actually use the same Core Complex Dice (CCDs) as its desktop Ryzen and Threadripper CPUs—EPYC just gets more of them, along with a beefier I/O chiplet (cIOD). So saying, whatever CPU core... Read more...
When AMD announced the Ryzen 7 5800X3D at CES 2022, a lot of people were surprised that the company appears to only be launching a single Ryzen SKU with its staked 3D V-Cache technology. That's partially because the company had already demonstrated 3D V-Cache using a Ryzen 9 5950X, and partially because we know AMD... Read more...
There wasn't any talk of AMD's eventual next-generation EPYC stack at the Consumer Electronics Show, and we didn't really expect there to be any. However, AMD has talked about its future server CPUs codenamed Genoa before. Between what AMD has said and various leaks and rumors, we have at least some kind of idea what... Read more...
AMD had quite a bit to say about its updated 3rd Gen EPYC processors with 3D V-cache and new Instinct MI200 GPU accelerators, which deliver massive firepower to enable exascale computing in the HPC sector. But those weren't the only nuggets Dr. Lisa Su and the gang dropped during yesterday's event. Towards the end of... Read more...
For chip companies, bigger profit margins can be found in the data center market, and that's often where we see new innovations manifest first before trickling into the consumer space. To wit, we know AMD is prepping a Zen 3 refresh with stacked 3D V-cache. While we patiently wait, AMD today also just introduced 3rd... Read more...
AMD is evidently going to bring out the heavy artillery in the server space, if the latest round of leaks end up being accurate. Looking beyond what's on tap for AMD's next-gen Zen 4 EPYC processors (codenamed Genoa), it is said the Zen 4 lineup (codenamed Turin) will come loaded with up to 256 cores and 512 threads...

If you are an enthusiast that recently upgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 11 and have noticed some performance degradation, you’re not alone. Although we’re not sure why these issues didn’t rear their heads earlier during the Windows Insider testing phase, AMD confirms that its Ryzen and EPYC processors are affected... Read more...
Since 2020, Netflix has been able to serve up 200 gigabits per second (Gbps) of TLS-encrypted video traffic from each of its servers, but there is now a path to doubling that amount to 400Gb/s. Andrew Gallatin, a senior software engineer at Netflix, outlined how the streaming service has been able to achieve the feat... Read more...
AMD's next round of server processors are going to be EPYC beasts, if recently leaked documents end up being legitimate. These supposedly official documents outline some of the characteristics of AMD's next-gen EPYC processors based on its upcoming Zen 4 architecture, including the SP5 socket design they will slip...

Bergamo is a city in Italy, located northeast of Milan. It might also be the codename for an upcoming 128-core/256-thread EPYC server processor based on AMD's Zen 4 architecture, if the latest rumor is to be believed. If true, the chip would represent a spirited attempt by AMD to claim more data center market share... Read more...
Today, Google announced a new family of virtual machines called Tau VMs, “optimized for cost-effective performance of scale-out workloads.” Furthermore, the Mountain View-based company has partnered with AMD to create the first VM in the line, the T2D, which is powered by 3rd Gen EPYC processors. In a blog post... Read more...
AMD has been on a hot streak in the processor market since it introduced its first-generation Zen architecture in 2017. Its most recent iteration, Zen 3, is available across consumer (Ryzen), workstation (Threadripper), and enterprise (EPYC) product families, topping out at 64 cores for the latter two. AMD has...

A reinvigorated AMD is making strides across the board, including the high-dollar data center segment where premium sums go towards the top silicon money can buy. Intel has historically dominated data center sales, but it can ill-afford to become lax—AMD just saw its its biggest sequential jump in data center market... Read more...
When we think of processors used in the enterprise market, Intel Xeon or AMD EPYC x86-64 families typically comes to mind. Intel has the lion's share of the market, with AMD steadily gaining traction ever since its Zen architecture birthed first-generation EPYC 7001 processors. However, Arm is also a player in this... Read more...
AMD just launched its next-generation EPYC server processors, codenamed Milan, based on the company’s leading Zen 3 microarchitecture. The new EPYC 7003 series is an important milestone for AMD. The company has made significant in-roads in servers and data centers in recent years, and the arrival of the EPYC 7003 series brings with it... Read more...
AMD is finally ready to take the next step in the rollout of its Zen 3 family of processors following the launch of Ryzen 5000 desktop and laptop families. Today, AMD announced that its third-generation EPYC processors would be officially announced on March 15th at 11 am ET, one week from today. On hand at the... Read more...
It has been interesting to see AMD and duke it out on the home desktop, the former with its latest generation Zen 3 architecture and the latter with Comet Lake (soon to be Rocket Lake). But that is not the only place these two chip giants tussle. The server space is an important battleground, and both are set to load... Read more...
AMD has not yet announced its next generation EPYC "Milan" server processors based on its Zen 3 CPU architecture, but they are coming, and presumably soon. Very soon, in fact, if the latest leak is any indication. For a period of time earlier today, a server listing on Dell's site in Canada highlighted a few different... Read more...
AMD's Zen 3-based EPYC CPUs might be the worst-kept secret in all of technology. Details about these CPUs have been leaking onto the internet via Twitter since late last year. More recently, the 32-core EPYC 7543 made itself known via the Geekbench results database. AMD CEO Lisa Su all but confirmed rumors about... Read more...
