AMD’s EPYC 9654 CPU which is a part of the Zen 4 “Genoa” household and options 96 cores has been pictured by YuuKi_AnS. According to the leaker, the AMD EPYC 9000 “Genoa” lineup will launch alongside the Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” chips within the coming weeks.

The AMD Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” Desktop CPUs primarily based on the Zen 4 core structure are deliberate for an official announcement on the twenty ninth of August with a launch deliberate for fifteenth of September. As per the leaker, the AMD EPYC 9000 “Genoa” Server CPUs are additionally reportedly going to debut the identical day. Now, this is not a serious deal contemplating each lineups are primarily based on the identical Zen 4 core structure. But I believe it might make extra sense to have them introduced on the identical day on the twenty ninth (August) adopted by a launch later within the coming month.

Having two merchandise being introduced on the identical day is not as troublesome to handle than to have two utterly totally different product households launching without delay. While the announcement can occur on the identical day, the launch would possibly happen just a few days aside. Regardless of that, AMD having its EPYC 9000 “Genoa” household being introduced as early as August signifies that they’re undoubtedly on schedule and can blow away Intel’s Sapphire Rapids-SP Xeon CPU lineup which has been delayed to 2023.

AMD EPYC 9654 “Genoa” CPU Specifications

AMD EPYC 9654 and will likely be a part of the Genoa EPYC 9000 sequence household. The CPU will provide a complete of 96 cores and 192 threads which is the utmost core rely of the Genoa lineup. To get to 96 cores, AMD will likely be incorporating a complete of as much as 12 CCD’s in its Genoa chip. Each CCD will characteristic 8 cores primarily based on the Zen 4 structure. This is a rise of fifty% in cores and thread rely versus the Milan-X 64 core and 128 thread elements. But this is not the flagship SKU as that title is held by the EPYC 9664 which we additionally detailed right here.

In addition to the discharge dates, AMD’s EPYC 9654 “Genoa” CPU has additionally been pictured. This is a retail-ready chip and has the correct SKU identify etched on the IHS. The AMD EPYC 9654 “Genoa” CPU will characteristic 32 MB of L3 cache per CCD which will likely be shared throughout all Zen 4 cores throughout the CCD and a complete of 1 MB L2 cache per core. This provides us 384 MB of L3 cache and 96 MB of L2 cache which mix to supply a large 480 MB of cache pool obtainable on the highest SKU. For comparability, the highest EPYC Milan CPU, the EPYC 7763, packs 256 MB of L3 (32 MB per CCD) & 32 MB of L2 (512 KB per core) for a complete of 288 MB mixed cache. That’s a 67% improve within the quantity of cache alone.

  • AMD EPYC 9654 (Genoa) – 384 MB L3 (32 MB Per CCD) + 96 MB L2 (1 MB Per Core) = 480 MB Cache
  • AMD EPYC 7763 (Milan) – 256 MB L3 (32 MB Per CCD) + 32 MB L2 (512 KB Per Core) = 288 MB Cache

With that stated, AMD’s EPYC 9000 “Genoa” CPU lineup for servers goes to supply an enormous uplift in efficiency. We have already seen a partial 128 core / 256 thread configuration defeating all the current-gen server chips so a 192 core and 384 thread dual-socket configuration goes to shatter some world data for positive. The AMD EPYC 9000 Genoa CPU lineup is predicted to enter servers within the subsequent few months.
