There is leak of the new AMD EPYC 7000 series processors, a generation that is aimed at the professional sector and maintains the ZEN architecture we saw at RYZEN.
Although as we say the base architecture is the same we must bear in mind that the AMD EPYC 7000 series present important differences compared to those, and that they go beyond the total count of cores and threads.
At the time, AMD already confirmed that the new EPYC processors were going to have up to 32 cores and 64 threads, a very powerful configuration that allows them to compete without problems with the most powerful alternatives of Intel, but in addition there are other fundamental keys that we tell you next:
- Each CPU supports up to 8 DDR4 channels, with a maximum total of 2 TB of RAM.
- Support quad-channel RAM configurations with a speed of up to 2666 MHz.
- 128 PCI-E lines.
- Integrated security subsystem.
- Built-in chipset.
- Socket compatible with next-generation EPYC processors.
In the first image we can see a complete list with all models that have been identified to date, and in the second a summary with those ordered by price and compared in performance with Intel solutions within the same price range (the first half in configurations of one socket and in the second with two sockets).
At first glance, it seems that AMD has done a good job and that as we said the new AMD EPYC 7000 series have a lot to say.
Its official launch is expected for next June 20, so within a few days we hope to have official and definitive information that also includes the prices of each model.
