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 delivered the goods on performance with its Zen families, but it has also offered more cores than Intel's competing Core and Xeon counterparts. Now, new rumors allege that AMD is on track to deliver another big performance boost with Zen 4, along with a leap in core counts. It's now alleged that at least one variant of the Zen 4 architecture will feature a stunning 128 cores, which would... Read more...
No matter what kind of pricing proposition AMD brought to the server sector or how many cores and threads it offered up, Intel could always play the AVX-512 card, touting superior performance in very specific workloads that leverage that instruction set. Perhaps not for long, though. Rumor has it AMD's EPYC 7004 series CPUs will embrace AVX3-512. We're not talking about AMD's next-generation server chips, but it's next next-generation models. In the more immediate future, AMD is getting ready to unveil its EPYC 7003 series based on Zen 3, codenamed Milan. Then sometime after (perhaps very late this year, or more likely around this time next year), it will roll out its Zen 4-based EPYC "Genoa"... Read more...
AMD has not yet released its fourth generation EPYC "Milan" server processors based on its Zen 3 CPU architecture, but barring any last minute snags, those chips are coming any day now. Looking further down the road, a new leak highlights a possible fourth generation EPYC "Genoa" configuration based on Zen 4, with some interesting details. Up to this point, details about Genoa have been rather scarce. We know it will be built on TSMC's 5-nanometer manufacturing process, and that it will power El Capitan, which is set to become the world's most powerful supercomputer when it is fully deployed in 2023. The latter revelation comes by way of a joint announcement between AMD, Hewlett Packard Enterprise... Read more...
