AMD will release the new Epyc generation Genoa processors for server processing at the end of the year. They are based on Zen 4 architecture. We can already see the capabilities of this top-of-the-line model, which will have a 96 core CPU.
The tests were likely to have passed Epyc 9654P, which has 96 cores at frequencies of 2.15-3.75 GHz. It is equipped with 384MB L3 cache and a TDP value of 360W. It is important to clarify that the tests were performed using two of these CPUs.
The novelty’s results in single-threaded mode are positive, but it is not possible to take over from competitors or previous generations. Server CPUs are not made for single-threaded workloads. The 96-core AMD beast is at its best when it’s multi-threaded.
