AMD EPYC Genoa – we got to know the appearance of the upcoming server processor with 96 Zen 4 cores in 5 nm lithography


A few hours ago, we informed about the AMD EPYC Genoa processors, and more specifically about the dimensions of the SP5 socket, which was captured in the photo. The photo confirms that we will be dealing with very large server processors, much larger than the current units. AMD has so far revealed only a few preliminary information about the upcoming Genoa generation, in which a new microarchitecture and a lower technological process will be used. This time we come to you with another information, or rather another photo, showing the actual appearance of the AMD EPYC Genoa processor. It is also the final confirmation of the information regarding the use of more CCD blocks.

A photo has appeared on the network showing a 96-core AMD EPYC Genoa processor, based on the Zen 4 microarchitecture and the 5 nm TSMC process.

AMD Zen 4 – EPYC server processors will support 12-channel DDR5 RAM. It promises to be a solid leap forward

In the photo below you can see the AMD EPYC Genoa processor in its highest configuration, using 12 CCDs. Each of them is equipped with 8 Zen 4 cores. As the manufacturer has already confirmed a few months ago, the new Genoa family will use up to 96 cores, which is a noticeable increase over existing systems with 64 cores at most. With the use of the new and certainly more efficient Zen 4 microarchitecture and the lower 5nm TSMC process technology, the new EPYC Genoa chips are sure to offer significantly higher performance. The rebuilt I / O block also takes up a lot of space. We also know from previous information that each core will have twice as much L2 cache – 1 MB instead of 0.5 MB as now.

The processor case itself is much larger compared to existing systems such as EPYC Rome, Milan or Milan-X. The number of contact points (the new chip will be placed in the SP5 socket, which we mention here in more detail) increased by 2002 compared to the current EPYC server processors (based on the SP3 socket). The bottom of the processor is divided into four parts, each of which has 1,520 points of contact. For comparison, consumer Ryzen processors on the AM4 socket have 1331 pins. AMD EPYC Genoa processors will debut in the coming months.
