AMD will announce its next-gen Epyc Genoa server processors on the 10th of November. The chipmaker has shared this info via its Twitter handle. Codenamed Genoa, the 4th Gen Epyc CPUs will feature up to 96 cores and 192 cores across 12 CCDs with boost clocks of up to 3.7GHz and a peak TDP of 400W. In addition, the SP5 platform will feature support for PCIe Gen 5, DDR5, and CXL 1.1.
We’re looking at twelve DDR5 channels @ 4800 Mbps, supporting two DIMMs per channel for a total capacity of 6 TB per socket. The 2P/2S boards will come with 160 PCIe Gen 5 lanes and 64 lanes with CXL capability. The other notable addition to the Epyc Genoa family is wider instruction support, including BFLOAT16, VNNU, and AVX512. Unlike Intel, these will run using 256b double pumping.
