Although we’re yet to see the launch of AMD’s 3rd Gen Epyc Milan server CPUs (based on Zen 3), details regarding the 4th Gen Genoa lineup have already started leaking out. As per a well-reputed leaker, ExecutableFix, the Genoa CPUs will feature 96 cores, along with support for PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory.
Although the latter isn’t surprising, the former certainly is fresh info. Both Rome and Milan (expected to) top out at 64 cores and 128 threads, with up to 256MB of L3 cache, PCIe 4.0 support, 128 PCIe lanes and 8-channel memory support. Since we’re seeing an increment in the core count, it’s possible that the number of PCIe lanes will increase as well, with the total L3 also seeing a larger figure, as the total number of CCXs/CCDs are increased.
