Unsurprisingly, the launch of the AMD Zen 3 architecture will be handed over to the next-generation EPYC Dragon processor (codenamed Milan Milan). Mining, identified as AMD Eng Sample: 100-000001114-07-22/15_N, suspected AMD Zen3 EPYC processor chip is present on Linux.
Obviously, this is an early ES engineering fragment with a base frequency of 1.5GHz and can be accelerated up to 2.2GHz. Unfortunately, core number information does not appear in the identification code.
In fact, the ES-chip frequency of the previous generation of EPYC Rome was similar, but eventually touched 3.4GHz.
According to AMD’s latest slides, EPYC Milan is based on a 7nm-plus process, An SP3 interface, a maximum of 64 cores and 128 threads, support for DDR4 memory/PCIe 4.0, and thermal design power consumption between 120 and 225W. Since Zen3 focuses on performance improvementpers per watt, AMD believes it will definitely be better than Intel’s 10nm Ice Lake-SP.
The average increase in IPC (which can be understood as equivalent performance) is around 15% (rumours are now optimized to 17%), and floating-point improvementise is said to be up to 50%. Zen 3 is not a simple fix compared to Zen 2, but is refactored to CCX/CCD, and the caching system varies greatly.
