As part of its 2022 Financial Analysis Day, AMD unveiled
its updated server processor roadmap through 2024. The most important point in the entire roadmap is that AMD is already working on plans for the next generation of server processors, the 5th generation EPYC processors code-named Turin. In addition, AMD also announced some details of its EPYC 7004 product line, including Genoa
, Bergamo, Genoa-X, and Siena.
In August 2019, AMD launched the second-generation EPYC processor, which is code-named Rome. After that, AMD launched new EPYC 7003 processors including Milan and Milan-X, and the next-generation EPYC 7004 Genoa processor is expected to be launched in the fourth quarter of this year.
The Genoa processor used on the new SP5 platform will have 96 Zen 4 cores based on TSMC’s 5nm process, support up to 12-channel memory, PCI-E 5.0 and Compute Express Link memory expansion. However, although Genoa will be launched at the end of this year, AMD also announced that Bergamo products, which are also 4th generation EPYC processors, will be launched in the first half of 2023, and Genoa-X and Siena will also meet you sometime next year.
Like Genoa, Genoa-X processors will also have up to 96 Zen 4 cores, but the L3 cache will be increased to a maximum of 1GB per socket. The Siena series product line will be a processor for low-cost platforms, with up to 64 cores, and will have specific optimizations in performance per watt, making it a more competitive product in the edge network and electrical market.
But the most notable of the announcements have to be AMD’s 5th Gen EPYC processors codenamed Turin.AMD has not announced too much information about the Turin series, but it can be guessed that it should be named after the current EPYC, called EPYC 7005. At present, there is not much information about Turin, only that it will use the Zen 5 architecture of the 4nm process, and there will also be a 3nm process version. AMD also said that there will be three versions of Zen 5 architecture processors, namely Zen 5, Zen 5 with 3D V-Cache, and Zen 5c. As for when the fifth-generation EPYC will be available, it will probably be before the end of 2024.
