AMD just announced it will hold a new event focusing on future data centre products. Although the company didn't specify what it would show during the event, leakers believe it will include the Epyc “Milan-X” processors with 3D V-cache and the Instinct MI250 HPC GPUs, marking the announcement of the first GPU with an MCM (multi-chip module) design.
We already knew that AMD was planning to launch new CPUs with its new 3D chiplet technology (3D V-cache), but we didn't expect it would be this soon, much less in data centre CPUs. But that's exactly what will happen, at least according to @ExecutableFix and @TDevilfish. Based on the Zen3 architecture with 3D V-Cache (Zen3+), Milan-X CPUs are expected to belong to the Epyc 7x73X series, featuring 4x SKUs with up to 64x cores, 128x threads and up to 768MB of L3 cache.
Ah, there’s your MI250 and Milan-X launch event 👀 https://t.co/wD15Xzh1Pg

Besides the Milan-X processors, the leakers also claimed that AMD will introduce the Instinct MI250 series HPC GPUs, officially marking the debut of an MCM-designed product. Intel and Nvidia are also planning to introduce their MCM products with Ponte Vecchio (aka Xe-HPC) and GH100 (Hopper) GPUs, respectively.
