AMD EPYC 9005 “Turin” Processors Spotted: Launch Imminent?

In the fourth-quarter earnings call of 2023, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su confirmed the launch of the next-generation Zen 5 architecture in the second half of 2024. The product lineup includes Granite Ridge for desktop platforms, Strix Point for mobile platforms, and Turin for server platforms. The new Zen 5 series architecture encompasses three designs: Zen 5, Zen 5 V-Cache, and Zen 5c, and will be available in both 4nm and 3nm versions.

According to Wccftech, AMD has begun submitting the EPYC 9005 series server processors, codenamed “Turin,” to the Serial ATA International Organization (SATA-IO), signaling a step closer to the release of the new processors and confirming the model names of the next-generation products.

Based on information revealed two months ago, “Turin” is part of the fifth-generation EPYC server processors, featuring at least 20 products utilizing Zen 5 architecture cores (Nirvana) and Zen 5c architecture cores (Prometheus), all employing the SP5 socket (LGA 6096). It is understood that the new generation includes models based on the Zen 5c architecture, which can be equipped with up to 192 cores and 384 threads, with an L3 cache of 384MB and a maximum TDP of 500W. Meanwhile, models based on the Zen 5 architecture can be equipped with up to 128 cores and 256 threads, with an L3 cache of 512MB.
