AMD Zen 2 Update: 7nm EPYC in Labs Now, Launching in 2019
08 June, 2018, 07:12
AMD's second generation Ryzen Threadripper CPUs offer up to 64 threads (32 cores times 2 threads) with standard speeds of 3.0 GHz and turbo speeds of 3.4 GHz.
AMD is touting the 7nm process as offering double the power efficiency, and more than 35% greater performance from the last 14nm transistor process node - although these are the blanket figures from TSMC and GlobalFoundries regarding the two companies entire 7nm portfolios.
When AMD first demoed Threadripper past year, keen-eyed enthusiasts soon realized the chip packed two "real" Zen die, with eight cores each, but also two "dummy" die that were simply meant to stabilize the overall package.
Although we don't know what their clock speeds will be, we do know that the new AMD chips will require quite a lot of power. The new CPUs will feature either 24 or 32 cores, with two threads per core, for a total of 48 or 64 threads. It will use the same TR4 socket allowing customers to shift from one Threadripper generation to the next. The world's first 7 nm GPU though, the Vega-based Radeon Instinct was also shown off to the crowd and it was announced it will be launched to server and workstation form factors 2H 2018.
Sadly, AMD's CEO Lisa Su already crushed any glimmer of hope for a 7nm Vega card intended for gamers this year. However, not all processes are sensitive to these latencies and AMD has improved Infinity Fabric in the Zen+ design, so perhaps the hit will not be as significant as one might think.
It goes without saying that the second-generation EPYC will be even more important for AMD than the first-generation.
AMD showed a brief demo of a new 24-core version of Ryzen Threadripper (32GB DDR4-2666) pitted up against the 18-core Intel Core i9-7980XE (32GB DDR4-3200) in Blender, and the AMD part of course finished first by a notable margin.
On top of exciting product updates, the company also detailed new partnership with Chinese tech giant Huawei on Ryzen-powered laptop, Matebook, and further collaboration with its OEM partners including Acer, Dell, Asus, and Lenovo.
AMD stated that it would be sampling Rome-based Zen 2 processors to partners in the second half of 2018, with launch in 2019.
