EPYC Xiaolong product line, the first generation codenamed Naples in Naples, the first generation Zen architecture, up to 32 cores, this year's second generation code Rome (Rome), Zen 2 architecture, up to 64 cores, and then By mid-2020, we will see the third generation, Zen 3 architecture codenamed Milan (Milan).
Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager of the Enterprise and Embedded Division at AMD, said in an interview during the Taipei Computer Show.The fourth generation of the Zen 4 architecture, the genius code "Genoa" (Genoa), is still an Italian city, and the later Zen 5th Five-Year Dragon will continue this code name naming, but it has not yet been made public.
The release time of the four or five generations of Xiaolong did not say that it seems that the fourth generation of Genoa should be in late 2021 or 2020.
At the same time, Norrod also mentioned the recently announcedTop Supercomputer Frontier based on AMD platformIt is planned to be put into use in 2021 and the floating point performance can be reached.1.5EFlops (150 billion floating point operations per second)When it is not the first in the world, it is definitely the top three.
It was widely speculated that the supercomputer would use AMD Milan's third-generation Snapdragon, but Norrod confirmed that this is not the case, butUsing a processor specifically tailored for this project, instead of simply adjusting the core, frequency, and cache, the Infinity Fabric high-speed interconnect channel is used directly between CPU-GPU and GPU-GPU.
