Tonight AMD will unveil the new, already third generation of EPYC server processors, also known under the codename Milan. The presentation will take place online, which is not surprising given the pandemic. The broadcast will start at 18:00, Moscow time, on the official AMD YouTube channel.
AMD executive director Lisa Su, technical director Mark Papermaster, general manager of embedded systems department Forrest Norrod and other company representatives are expected to speak at the upcoming event. As for the subject matter of the presentation, it is currently known about the EPYC Milan processors that they will carry the Zen 3 architecture, which debuted in the Ryzen 5000 desktop processors last year. In addition to architectural improvements themselves cores new chips will offer a unified third-level cache for each chip (a total of 32 MB for the eight cores).
AMD server innovations will offer up to 64 cores and 128 threads. They will be made in familiar SP3 package, which will allow to use them in already existing systems. TDP level of new chips according to rumors will not exceed 280 W.
