AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) Unveils 7nm CPU, GPU At 'Next Horizon' Event

AMD EPYC 'Rome': Zen 2 on 7nm, 64C/128T of CPU power

AMD claims a doubling of throughput and support for processing 256-bit floating point instructions, as well as better branch prediction and much better power efficiency. It's next-generation Epyc chips combine up to eight 7nm CPU "chiplets" with a central 14nm I/O die supporting 8-channel DDR4 memory and PCIe 4.0.

Each Rome CPU will feature 64 cores with symmetrical multi-threading for 128 threads per socket.

Since the Zen 2 microarchitecture is expected to increase the general performance of CPU cores, the Rome processors can be expected to improve the server performance significantly too as compared to the existing machines. This offers not only higher IPCs and a significant increase in overall performance, but also improved security features in the recently announced EPYC CPU "Rome".

One aspect of the Zen2 design has only been rumored though, but now it has been confirmed: Zen 2-based Epyc processors will use a separate I/O die.

I'll be covering more details from the launch as well as discussing the impact AMD's 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture will have on its product line-up and competition with Intel so make sure to follow me here on Forbes or on social media using the links below. AMD showed a pre-production, air-cooled, non-overclocked Rome outperforming a dual-socket Skylake SP with 56 cores and 112 threads in the floating-point intensive C-ray benchmark. This is a insane achievement for AMD, and really sets a new standard for compute performance.

"By using the Zen 2 architecture and 7nm, on desktops", said analyst Pat Moorhead of Moor Insights. What exactly gets ported over to Ryzen, however, isn't known.

However, that's not all for the 7nm manufacturing process. If the claims hold up, the second-generation processor has a shot at being the highest performing datacenter CPU in 2019.

Of course it is entirely possible this design characteristic will not come to the Ryzen 3/5/7 products, but it might be employed on Threadripper, which is now a step between the normal consumer products and server-targeting EPYC chips.

AMD has just started providing details on its next-gen EPYC processor codenamed "Rome", which will be the industry's first server processor on the new 7nm node.

AMD's multiyear investments in data center hardware and software are behind growing adoption of the company's CPUs and GPUs, said Lisa Su, AMD's president and CEO.
