[RUMOR] Up to 128 Cores on Threadripper Zen4 ?

[RUMOR] Up to 128 Cores on Threadripper Zen4 ?

As usual and with the usual formula, this rumor should be taken with a pinch of salt. However, some information coming from Chiphell announces that AMD’s next-generation Threadripper and EPYC processors could contain up to 128 cores based on the Zen4 architecture. As you know, Threadripper is a direct descendant of the current-generation EPYC architecture, so the fate of the EPYC line very much shapes the future of Threadripper. So far, the information we have gathered points to the EPYC Genoa line of server processors, based on Zen 4 and 5nm, with configurations offering up to 96 cores and 192 threads.

Threadripper Zen4: 96 cores or more?

AMD has so far not revealed any technical details about these future generations, but based on the renderings and projections of ExecutableFix, the latter allows us to determine that Genoa would house 12 CCDs with Zen 4 cores. One thing we know for sure from AMD is that Zen 4 does not increase the number of cores per CCD. In these conditions and with this configuration we get a total of 96 cores. EPYC GENOA Zen 4 For a few weeks now, however, several sources have been reinforcing the rumor that Genoa would have a maximum of 128 cores. However, the (admittedly theoretical) configuration of Genoa seems to forbid it. A 128-core chip, if it exists, would not be part of the Genoa family.

To obtain the 128 Zen4 cores, it would be necessary to concentrate them in 16 CCDs. To fit 16 CCDs implies that the size of this future CPU and its socket could be totally different. To complete this rumor, WCCFTECH understands that the processor will also support 12-channel DDR5-5200 memory. In the meantime, we still hope to arrive the current generation of Threadripper. Computex was unfortunately a missed opportunity.
