AMD to announce next-generation EPYC processors on November 10

AMD officially issued an announcement announcing that it will hold a live event called “together we advance_data centers” at 10:00 am Pacific Time on November 10, 2022, to launch the next generation of EPYC processors. AMD executives, as well as key ecosystem partners, will be on stage to detail the next generation of data center processors and solutions.

Next-generation EPYC processor based on Zen 4 architecture, can be equipped with up to 12 CCDs, each CCD has 8 cores, L3 cache is 32MB, and each core has 1MB L2 cache, adding up to a total of 96MB L2 cache and 384MB L3 cache. Compared with the current flagship EPYC 7773X, which has 32MB of L2 cache and 256MB of L3 cache, the number of caches has increased by 67%. In the future, there will also be products using 3D V-Cache technology, and there will be EPYC processors based on the Zen 4c architecture.

More embarrassing is Intel, whose next-generation Xeon scalable processor Sapphire Rapids has been delayed several times, from 2021 to 2023. Intel originally intended to use Sapphire Rapids to compete with the EPYC processor code-named Milan, but after multiple delays, it was even later than the new generation of EPYC processors, code-named Genoa, and the schedule was well behind the competition.
