The second half of the year will be key to AMD, with the launch of the EPYC 2 “ROME” processors, the third generation Ryzen and the Navi graphics family, which will bring a variety of products manufactured in 7 nm, both for the domestic as well as the business sector. The ones we are dealing with today, the EPYC 2 processors, will be particularly innovative, multiplying by two the 32 cores that the previous generation offered, the AVX performance per core and offering a considerable increase in performance according to workload. Today, finally, we have two important data: frequencies and TDP.
The YouTube channel RedGamingTech has informed, in the video that you have here, that the new ROME processors will have a base frequency of 2, 35 GHz, and a boost of 3.2 GHz in the 64 cores and 128 threads Apparently this makes possible with a TDP of 240 W, something that is within the expected given of the design changes of AMD with Zen 2 and the advantages of the lithography of 7 nm of TSMC.
For put things in perspective, remember that the EPYC 7601, current flagship of AMD, offers 32 cores, 64 threads, frequencies of 2.2 GHz / 3.2 GHz to 180 W. This implies that the new EPYC will be more powerful by core thanks to that base frequency and the performance improvements linked to the Zen 2 architecture. We must also take into account that 60 W increase of the TDP, although seeing the increase in performance we can perfectly say that the new generation ROME is more efficient than the previous EPYC. Are you looking forward to the arrival of Computex 2019 for AMD to present its new products?
