In addition to exposing the E-Zen 2 We got a teaser for Rome - the new generation of red chip developer for servers that will double the number of cores available on the motherboard and can provide up to a 4x improvement in performance in some cases
After we've digested the significant innovations that the Zen 2 cores give us in general, it's a good time to look at the products that can be assembled and created based on them. The Rome processors for servers, on which the second EPYC generation will be based, are the first to receive detailed information AMD - and they manage to excite us with doubling the number of cores to 64 while promising to maintain compatibility for the first generation SP3 bracket and also compatibility for the future third generation Milan.
AMD will continue to focus on single-processor or dual-processor solutions, ie up to 128 physical processing cores and another 128 logical cores in one motherboard, with each of those EPYC processors enjoying access to up to eight DDR4 memory channels (one-core eight-channel chipset, it seems ) To support huge volumes of up to 4 terabytes per socket - and each board will also enjoy 128 new-generation PCI-Express 4.0 arteries with dual bandwidth from PCI-Express 3.0 arteries (i.e. 128 single-processor arteries or 128 side-by-side arteries Residences and processors on the board), to prevent any chance of a bottleneck in working in front of next-generation performance accelerators like theRadeon Instinct MI60 is also based on chip 7 nm and exposed to the processors themselves.
The second generation of EPYC processors is expected to arrive sometime in the coming year, when it is not entirely clear whether it will be the commercial debut of the C-Zen 2, or is there a chance we'll see them appear in the next generation?RYZEN 3000 even before that.
The information obtained certainly spurs us to start thinking about the possible improvements for home market processors that will be based on the new era cores - is there a chance we will see up to 16 processing cores based on the AM4 chassis? Will we see support for PCI-Express 4.0 in the home market in the next six months? Will the new architecture allow modular access even in combination Core Graphic in APU units? Please be assured that we will continue to follow the field and share all the answers.
