Another batch of leaked benchmarks purporting to show a next-generation EPYC "Milan" server CPU based on Zen 3 has materialized, and if the data is to be believed, it offers a decent jump in IPC (instructions per clock) performance over the current generation "Rome" stack, based on Zen 2. Not that this should surprise anyone, given what we have already saw with AMD's Ryzen 5000 series. In case you missed it, we have plenty of benchmarks and data in our review of the Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 9 5900X, AMD's top two Zen 3 SKUs. As we found in our evaluation, these CPUs—and by extension, the Zen 3 architecture—are adept at pretty much everything, be it gaming, content creation, productivity... Read more...
Up to this point, everything AMD has said indicates the company is still on track to launch its upcoming Zen 3 processors this year, despite the recent Ryzen 3000 "XT" refresh that led to rumors of a delayed release. In case further proof is needed, an apparent Zen 3 engineering sample has shown up in the wild, as part of AMD's EPYC server family. Well, a reference to an ES chip, anyway. AMD's third-generation EPYC "Milan" server CPUs will replace its current-generation "Rome" family. These chips will be based on AMD's Zen 3 CPU architecture, and built on an enhanced 7-nanometer manufacturing process (AMD is not referring to the node as 7nm+, though). Zen 3 will presumably give way to better... Read more...
