In the near future, the range of AMD Zen 4 processors will be replenished with EPYC server chips, codenamed Genoa. The official presentation of new products will take place as part of the live broadcast “together we advance_data centers”, which is scheduled for November 10. You can follow the announcement through AMD’s YouTube channel.
On the other hand, the key features of AMD EPYC (Genoa) processors are already known thanks to unofficial sources. These CPUs will offer up to 96 SMT-enabled Zen 4 cores, up to 384MB of L3 cache, a 12-lane DDR5 controller, and 128 PCI Express 5.0 lanes. Under the hood, the new processors have a large I/O chip and a dozen x86 chiplets.
AMD EPYC (Genoa) server chips and the Socket SP5 platform will go on sale before the end of 2022. Next year, the company has scheduled the release of EPYC (Bergamo) CPUs based on the Zen 4c architecture, which will offer up to 128 physical cores, as well as the Genoa-X family. A distinctive feature of the latter will be an additional L3 cache. You can find the preliminary specifications of the new products below.
