AMD server processor EPYC Genoa will be equipped with 96 cores and 192 threads
EPYC is AMD’s processor for server equipment. According to the news of ExecutableFix, a digital whistleblower, the next-generation processor is named EPYC Genoa.
96-cores (192 threads)
128 PCIe 5.0 lanes (160 for 2P)
320W TDP (cTDP 400W) 🔥
SP5 (LGA-6096) socket
Genoa everyone 😍

AMD has previously announced the EPYC series process roadmap and announced in advance that the EPYC Genoa processor will use the Zen 4 architecture and be built with a 5nm process.
EPYC Genoa processors will be equipped with 96 cores, 192 threads, and support up to 12 channels of DDR5-5200MHz memory, in addition to supporting PCIe 5.0 technology that has not yet been widely used.
The number of chiplets on EPYC Genoa has also increased. It has now reached 12 chiplets. Each chip has 8 compute cores. This shows that AMD has maintained the current number of cores in the chiplets and added more chiplets. But this will cause the delay between chips to increase.
As a processor with such a powerful performance, the energy consumption is naturally not weak. The maximum TDP reaches 320W, and the full load is as high as 400W. The direct opponent of this processor is the Intel Xeon Sapphire Rapids architecture processor.
