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

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

One of AMD's mainstay features is socket compatibility for those that have already adopted previous generation processors.

AMD's latest "Rome" CPU features a basic chiplet design with the 7nm execution cores connected to a 14nm IO chip via faster Infinity Fabric.

With these "ROME" EPYC CPUs, the new architecture design also features improved branch prediction, instruction prefetch and re-optimized micro-op instruction cache, which has also been increased in size.

"The powerful combination of cores, memory bandwidth and I/O on AMD EPYC processors create a highly differentiated solution that can offer lower TCO for our customers and lower prices for the end-user".

Intel's recent 9th generation CPU launch offered higher frequencies and increased core counts, albeit for significantly higher costs, so Zen 2 represents a vital move for AMD to keep up the pressure, increasing lightly-threaded and multi-threaded performance while offering the same great value that has usually translated from its desktop CPUs compared to Intel's equivalents.

Neymar says he will not repeat what Bjorn Kuipers said to him publicly but called for action to be taken about the match official. Had he been offered greater protection by referee Kuipers , he probably would have had a greater influence on the encounter.

What's not known is how much of the Rome DNA will make it into the consumer Ryzen 2 due early next year.

Revealing the new chip tech at an AMD press and analyst event in San Francisco on Tuesday, the company said that Zen 2 represents the second and perhaps the most significant step in the architecture's timeline.

The roadmap for Zen started with the first design in 2012. Performance gains in terms of instructions per clock will be improved as well. If the claims hold up, the second-generation processor has a shot at being the highest performing datacenter CPU in 2019. The chips will be manufactured by TSMC on its leading 7nm node, which the company says will give it a significant advantage over Intel, which is now struggling with its own 10nm process.

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. We know Lisa Su is scheduled to deliver a keynote at CES in January.
