AMD says Ryzen 7000 will get support for AVX-512 instructions and promises new chips with 3D V-Cache in the future

AMD marketing director Robert Hallock has recently given a number of interviews to industry media in which he shared new details about the upcoming Ryzen 7000 processors, as well as clarified some details not quite clear from the presentation at Computex 2022.
Image source: AMDThe AMD representative confirmed that Ryzen 7000 processors will be able to offer up to 16 physical cores with support for up to 32 virtual threads.
At the same time, the power consumption level of some chip models will reach 170W, and the peak - more than 230W.
He also shared some other interesting details about the AM5 platform, next-generation Ryzen chips, and future products.Perhaps someone in the audience at AMD's presentation noted the unusual gold color of the two compute chips with Zen 4 cores in the image of the Ryzen 7000 processor.
Hallock explained that this color is the result of a process called back-side-metallization.
What this results in is not yet known.
Hallock also confirmed that the Ryzen 7000 supports AVX-512 instructions.
In an interview with TechPowerUp, he said that the company used AVX 512 VNNI and BFLOAT16/BF16 instructions as part of its chip presentation.
They are heavily used by TensorFlow, AMD ROCm and even NVIDIA CUDA libraries.
\"Specifically, AVX-512 VNNI is used for deep learning acceleration and AVX-512 BFLOAT16 is used for inference [AI operation, although bfloat16 is used everywhere in AI and beyond].
Both sets of instructions are actually quite good speedups.
We don't use acceleration with fixed functions.
Perhaps we will work with our Xilinx team in this direction.
We see that in the consumer sector, workloads related to AI algorithms are starting to be used more actively.
For example, this can be found in technologies related to image scaling, which have evolved significantly over the past two years.
I think there is a growing interest among enthusiasts to use AI more.
We thought it would be a good time to add such features to our chips.
Especially as we move to a more advanced technology node with higher performance, power and capabilities,\" Hallock commented.An AMD spokesperson also confirmed in a conversation with TechPowerUp that the company will continue to work with 3D V-Cache technology.
Recall that it debuted in consumer processors as part of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D for Socket AM4, a review of which you can read on our website.
\"3D V-Cache technology is absolutely part of our roadmap.
This is not just some one-time experiment.
We really believe in innovative chip packaging technologies that can give AMD an edge.
These are technologies that can dramatically improve performance.
But to say something specific about 3D V-Cache bundled with Zen 4, we can't yet,\" - explained Hallock.In an interview with Forbes/CrazyTechLab AMD representative did not confirm, but also did not deny information that the Socket AM5 platform will be as \"long-lived\" as Socket AM4, as previously stated head of the company Lisa Su.
On the other hand, the company has not yet shared all the details about the new platform.
Perhaps this information AMD saved for later.
\"I do not know yet.
Honestly.
We're still in the early stages of building the AM5.
A release is expected in the fall, but there's still a lot of work ahead.
That's one of the things we'd like to make clear.
Our users want transparency on this.
But we don't have an answer yet,\" Hallock added.In the same interview, he said that \"the Threadripper processor series isn't going anywhere.
This means that the company will eventually release a new generation of high-performance solutions, possibly for the Socket SP6 processor socket, which has been rumored for a long time.
However, the last two generations of AMD processors have shown that the company is more focused on the development of its workstation market, rather than on solutions for enthusiasts, which Threadripper processors actually belong to.
Any specific details about future HEDT chips Hallock didn't share.
However, he added that the company will give more details about the whole Socket AM5 platform in summer.
