MD EPYC Genoa CPU With 16 Zen 4 Cores In Two Next-Gen 5nm Core Complex Dies Pictured
The latest pictures were obtained by Videocardz and show X-Ray shots of what lies underneath the massive Genoa IHS. Another AMD EPYC Genoa CPU had just leaked out a few weeks earlier and this new one shows proves that the first samples are already being sent out to customers that in HPC & Cloud Computing segments.
As for the CPU itself, the AMD EPYC Genoa chip is based around the SP5 socket which features a total of 6096 LGA contacts, the highest ever on any server chip at the moment. It comes with a total of 16 cores and 32 threads based on the Zen 4 architecture which utilizes the latest TSMC 5nm node. This is particularly an entry-level configuration as it only features two of the twelve CCDs. The full fat configuration will feature 12 Zen 4 CCDs with 8 cores per CCD for a total of 96 cores. As per ExecutableFix, this sample is either the OPN 100-000000627-08 (ES0) or OPN 100-000000627-12 (ES1) variant. Aside from these, the insider has also reported OPNs for the 96 Core and 32 core variants which are 100-000000475-16 and 100-000000479-10, respectively.
