5th Generation EPYC “Turin” Announced, Coming End of 2024
As part of AMD’s Financial Analysts Day 2022, AMD has provided updates to its Server CPU roadmap going into 2024. The biggest announcement is that AMD already has plans for the (next) next-gen core for its successful EPYC family, the 5th generation EPYC series, which has been codenamed Turin. Some key announcements include various segmentations of its anticipated EPYC 7004 portfolio, including Genoa, Bergamo, Genoa-X and Siena.
From the launch of AMD’s EPYC 2nd Generation products codenamed Rome in August 2019, the release of the updated EPYC 7003 processors including both Milan and Milan-X, the next generation of EPYC 7004 codenamed Genoa is expected to launch in Q4 2022 Genoa will feature up to 96 Zen 4 cores based on TSMC’s 5 nm process node, with the new SP5 platform offering support for 12-channel memory, PCIe 5.0 and support for memory expansion with Compute Express Link (CXL).
While Genoa will benefit from up to 96 Zen 4 cores and will be released in the fourth quarter by the end of the year, AMD also announced Bergamo, which will be available in the first half of 2023, while Genoa-X and Siena will also be available. will be available somewhere. in 2023. AMD’s Genoa-X will feature up to 96 Zen 4 cores based on TSMC’s 5 nm manufacturing node, with up to 1 GB of L3 cache per socket. AMD Siena will primarily be targeted as a cheaper platform and will feature up to 64 Zen 4 cores, with optimized performance per watt, making it more affordable for the Edge and Telco markets.
AMD Unveils 5th Generation EPYC (Turin)
Perhaps the most important announcement on AMD’s Server CPU Roadmap going into 2024 is its plan to release its 5th Gen EPYC processors codenamed “Turin” sometime before the end of 2024. As expected, AMD has not disclosed many details about the Turin. family of processors, but we expect it to be called the EPYC 7005 platform to follow the current EPYC naming scheme.
We know that the Zen 5 cores will be based on a 4nm mode (probably TSMC but not confirmed) and a 3nm version, as highlighted in AMD’s CPU Core Roadmap through 2024. AMD also states that there will be three variants of the Zen will be 5-core in the CPU roadmap, including Zen 5, Zen 5 with 3D V-Cache and Zen 5c.
From the latest roadmap focusing on AMD’s EPYC products, we know that AMD’s 5th Gen EPYC processors are expected to launch sometime before the end of 2024.
