AMD has officially announced that it will host a virtual launch event next week to announce new EPYC processors. Taking place on the 15th of March, the event will be presented by multiple members of the AMD team, including Dr. Lisa Su.
During the event, AMD will present its upcoming Zen3-based EPYC processors. According to the latest leaks, the EPYC 7003 series will consist of 19 processors with up to 64x cores and 128x threads on up to 8x CCDs, a maximum TDP of 280W, up to 256MB of L3 cache, and operating frequencies as high as 4.1GHz. Other specifications include support for DDR4-3200 ECC memory across 8x channels and PCIe 4.0.
The event will include Dr. Lisa Su, AMD CTO Mark Papermaster, AMD Senior VP and GM of data centre Forrest Norrod and AMD’s GM of the Server Business Unit, Dan McNamara. As you would expect, representatives from AMD partners will also make an appearance, so expect to see some praise-filled quotes from some of AMD’s server customers.
KitGuru says: Are any of you interested in what’s next for AMD’s EPYC line of CPUs? Will you be tuning into the launch event next week?
