Enthusiasts and gamers are eagerly awaiting the next generation of Ryzen processors based on the Zen 4 architecture. However, server folks are really excited about Zen 4 too. AMD's EPYC "Genoa" family of processors are looking to be a big step up over the current "Milan" generation. Twitter leaker @yuuki_ans has... Read more...
Sometime later this year, AMD will release a new round EPYC server CPUs based on its Zen 4 architecture, codenamed Genoa (EPYC 9000 series). While we stand by and wait for the next-gen chips to manifest, photos of engineering samples and AMD's accompanying massive SP5 socket have found their way to the web, giving us... Read more...
If you thought AMD would only talk about dollars and cents at its Financial Analyst Day event, think again. Sure, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su shared plenty of data on TAM growth opportunities and ongoing investments, but it’s all predicated on a wide-ranging portfolio of compute and graphics products for both consumer and...

If you, like this author, are focused more on the consumer side of things, you may not know that AMD's EPYC server CPUs actually use the same Core Complex Dice (CCDs) as its desktop Ryzen and Threadripper CPUs—EPYC just gets more of them, along with a beefier I/O chiplet (cIOD). So saying, whatever CPU core... Read more...
There wasn't any talk of AMD's eventual next-generation EPYC stack at the Consumer Electronics Show, and we didn't really expect there to be any. However, AMD has talked about its future server CPUs codenamed Genoa before. Between what AMD has said and various leaks and rumors, we have at least some kind of idea what... Read more...
AMD had quite a bit to say about its updated 3rd Gen EPYC processors with 3D V-cache and new Instinct MI200 GPU accelerators, which deliver massive firepower to enable exascale computing in the HPC sector. But those weren't the only nuggets Dr. Lisa Su and the gang dropped during yesterday's event. Towards the end of... Read more...
AMD's next round of server processors are going to be EPYC beasts, if recently leaked documents end up being legitimate. These supposedly official documents outline some of the characteristics of AMD's next-gen EPYC processors based on its upcoming Zen 4 architecture, including the SP5 socket design they will slip...

AMD has been on a hot streak in the processor market since it introduced its first-generation Zen architecture in 2017. Its most recent iteration, Zen 3, is available across consumer (Ryzen), workstation (Threadripper), and enterprise (EPYC) product families, topping out at 64 cores for the latter two. AMD has...

AMD is on one heck of a run with its Zen architecture. The company really hit its stride with Zen 2 (Ryzen 3000 series on the desktop), which helped the company steal market share away from Intel and, just as importantly, gain mind share with enthusiasts. Zen 3 is even better (albeit in short supply at the moment)... Read more...
AMD held its Financial Analyst Day today and the company offered up a broad overview of what we should expect in terms of roadmap technologies execution over the next few years. Some of the topics that were touched on included next-generation RDNA 2 Navi GPU architectures, completely new CDNA GPUs optimized for the... Read more...
AMD just announced today a design win in conjunction with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE), in which it will be providing the hardware powering the El Capitan exascale-class supercomputer. What caught our eye about this announcement was not the compute performance... Read more...
AMD is riding high on its Zen 2 CPU architecture, both on the desktop and in the server sector, and has managed to steal some market share from Intel because of its recent success. Lest anyone think AMD will now rest on its laurels, the company put that notion to rest during a recent HPC-AI Advisory Council conference... Read more...
