AMD currently sells processors utilizing "standard" and "dense" (or "compact") cores, including some chips that have both. The "dense" cores are indicated with a "c" at the end, like "Zen 4c", and they have all the same capabilities as the standard cores, but typically run lower clocks because the tight spacing makes...

Software vulnerabilities come and go, but vulnerabilities found in hardware are significantly harder to deal with and lead to more problems, such as with Hertzbleed and that family of security issues that sprung up from simple clock management techniques. Now, researchers have found a new problem with AMD EPYC... Read more...
We might be in the midst of a lingering PC sales slump but you wouldn't necessarily know it by looking at AMD's latest earnings report. AMD posted financial results for its third quarter of 2023, which reflected a 4% year-over-year and 8% quarterly gain in revenue to $5.8 billion. This pushed its profit to $299... Read more...
Once upon a time, AMD's Opteron processors allowed it to make significant inroads into the server market. The compnay lost ground in the Bulldozer years, though, and with EPYC, AMD had to prove that it could reliably deliver competitive processors on time. We're now into the fourth generation of EPYC processors, and... Read more...
AMD hosted its Data Center and AI Technology Premiere in San Francisco, CA today, where it outlined its vision and strategy for the “future of computing.” The company introduced its first batch of fourth generation EPYC 9004 series server processors, aka Genoa, last November which largely delivered on the promise of...

AMD has posted its earnings report for the first quarter of 2023 and in it the company divulges some notable losses, including a 9 percent year-over-year decline in revenue to $5.35 billion. This resulted in a net loss of $139 million, compared to a $786 million profit in the same quarter a year ago. Nevertheless, AMD... Read more...
Leaked specifications of two upcoming AMD EPYC Genoa-X CPUs reveal that these chips will feature over 1GB of L3 cache with the integration of 3D V-Cache technology. Known as 100-000000892-04 and 100-000000892-06 respectively, both CPUs are fitted with a 64MB slab of 3D V-Cache on top of all 12 (yes twelve) of its Zen... Read more...
During an earnings call with analysts, AMD CEO Dr. Su noted, "We remain very bullish about our data center business," and it's easy to see why. Just days after rival Intel posted a brutal earnings report in which it suffered one of its biggest quarterly losses in history and a 20 percent drop in full-year revenue, AMD... Read more...
Hardware vulnerabilities are never fun, especially when actively exploited in the wild. Forward-looking companies try to get ahead of bad actors by encouraging responsible disclosure and awarding bug bounties. AMD has worked with security researchers who recently found numerous desktop and server/data center...

The latest rankings are in for the Top500 list of the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Frontier system powered by AMD EPYC hardware is still in front of the pack. That's not surprising, given that Frontier took pole position when it went online just shy of six months ago... Read more...
AMD has just officially launched its 4th generation of EPYC server CPUs. Codenamed Genoa, these EPYC 9004 series processors are built using the same Zen 4 DNA powering the company’s Ryzen 7000 series of consumer desktop CPUs. The central story behind these processors is the same as ever—larger core... Read more...
Following the launch of its Ryzen 7000 series desktop processors for consumers, AMD will soon unveil its first EPYC server chips based on the same underlying Zen 4 architecture. How soon? Less than three weeks from now—AMD announced it will livestream its next-generation EPYC server CPU launch on November 10... Read more...
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...
