AMD today will formally extend its Zen 3 family over to its server line, with the launch of its EPYC 7003 "Milan" CPUs. The event will be livestreamed, allowing you to can tune in to watch it unfold. So brew yourself a cup of coffee (or grab your beverage of choice), sit back, and watch the unveiling live with us here at HotHardware. The event starts at 11:00 am Eastern (8:00 am Pacific). Our best guess is it will last anywhere from around 30 minutes to an hour. Officially, the only real details AMD has provided is that its 3rd generation EPYC processors will indeed sport Zen 3 underneath the hood, and are "designed to elevate data center performance and bring transformational value to businesses."...

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 virtual press conference will be AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su and Mark Papermaster, who serves as Executive VP of Technology and Engineering. Dan McNamara, SVP and GM of the Server Business Unit, and Forrest Norrod, VP and GM for the Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Business Group, will also be there during the presentation to talk about EPYC. Beyond those details,... Read more...
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...
