AMD may ship Zen 4 powered EPYC Genoa ‘7004’ CPUs with more than 64 cores, reveals roadmap

AMD’s latest embedded roadmap reveals the number of cores that we can expect based on Zen 4 EPYC Genoa ‘7004’ and EPYC Embedded ‘3004’ series processors. The roadmap was leaked confirms that Zen 4 is expected to be launched in 2022.

According to the leak, AMD’s Zen 4 processor, or at least the EPYC CPU powered by Zen 4, will be launched in 2022. Based on the positioning on the roadmap, it seems that we hope to make a difficult launch around the middle of 2022.

In the first quarter of 2023, Genoa ‘7004’ CPU will be obtained first, followed by EPYC embedded ‘3004’ CPU. As for the expected details of these CPUs, they are listed below.

Speaking of the AMD EPYC Genoa CPU itself, these chips will package 96 cores and 192 threads. These will be based on AMD’s new Zen 4 core architecture, which is expected to achieve an amazing increase in IPC while using the TSMC 5nm process node.

Recently, there are rumors that because we will soon obtain other key technologies, AMD EPYC Genoa CPU is expected to provide up to 29% IPC improvement over Milan CPU, and an overall increase of 40%.

In order to get 96 cores, AMD must add more cores to its EPYC Genoa CPU package. AMD is said to achieve this goal by integrating as many as 12 CCDs in its Genoa chip. Each CCD will have 8 cores based on the Zen 4 architecture. This coincides with the increased socket size, and we may be considering using a large CPU interposer, even larger than the existing EPYC CPU. It is said that the TDP range of this CPU is between 120W-320W, and the highest configurable is 400W.

The CPU will be compatible with the LGA 6096 socket, which will be the largest socket when the LGA 6096 is launched. In addition to this, AMD’s EPYC Genoa CPU is said to have 128 PCIe Gen 5.0 channels, 160 of which will be used in a 2P (dual socket) configuration.

The SP5 platform will also have DDR5-5200 memory support, which is a crazy improvement on the existing DDR4-3200 MHz DIMM. But that’s not all. It will also support up to 12 DDR5 memory channels and 2 DIMMs per channel, using a 128 GB module to support up to 3 TB of system memory.
