As we just discovered in a tweet from the popular reliable leaker @Yuuki_AnS, upcoming AMD’s EPYC 9000 Genoa CPU series has been leaked with the new Zen 4 core architecture. The leaker revealed the lineup list corrects the naming of several SKUs, core counts, and clock speeds of the AMD’s EPYC 9000 series.

Previously, the American multinational semiconductor company disclosed tit’s it’s EPYC Genoa will be compatible with the new SP5 platform, which includes a new socket, so SP3 compatibility will end with EPYC Milan and also support a new memory generation and additional new features.

However, as per the report, the SP5 platform will include a brand new socket with 6096 pins arranged in LGA (Land Grid Array) format. This will be AMD’s largrocketcket to date, with 2,002 more pins than the current LGA 4094 socket. The socket will support AMD’s EPYC Genoa and future EPYC generations.

Moreover, when it comes to the Genoa CPU, the chip will have 96 cores and 192 threads. These will be based on AMD’s new Zen 4 core architecture and will offer insane IPC boosts while utilizing TSMC’s 5nm process node.

AMD had packed more cores into its EPYC Genoa CPU package to reach 96 cores. AMD will allegedly accomplish this by including 12 CCDs in its Genoa chips. Based on the Zen 4 architecture, each CCD will have 8 cores. This is consistent with the increased socket size, and we could see a massive CPU board, even larger than the current EPYC CPUs. The CPU has a TDP of 320W and can be configured to a maximum of 400W.

Yuki_AnS has leaked a total of 18 SKUs, 6 of which are still in ES status and the remaining 12 are already in production. Four “F” or frequency-optimized SKUs, three “P” single-slot SKUs, and 11 standard SKUs will be included in the lineup. Please keep in mind that these are only the SKUs that have already been leaked; there may be more in the works.

Accordingly, EPYC 9000 Genoa CPU configurations will range from 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, 84, and up to 96 Zen 4 cores. Some SKUs will include partially enabled chiplets with up to 384MB of L3 cache. A V-Cache variant called “Genoa-X” is also in the works, which means that a total of 1152 MB of LLC will be available on these parts.

Thus, clock frequencies vary by CPU, with some high TDP parts reaching 3.8 GHz, while top 96C parts at 320-400W run around 2.0-2.15 GHz. The top EPYC 9654P SKU has 96 cores, 192 threads, 384MB cache, 2.15GHz clock speed, and 360W TDP, while a 400W variant for the dual-socketcket SP5 platform is also in development and is listed as ES. The clock speed is the same, but the TDP is greater than 400W. Stay connected with TechGenyz for more updates.
