Over the years, AMD processors continue to engage in “nuclear war”, the server to do 64 core, desktop fever level immediately, the mainstream market even to 16 core, and AMD is not satisfied, do not intend to stop. AMD CTO Mark Papermaster said in an interview that in his view, there is no ceiling on processor cores in the mainstream market, because software is fast catching up and increasingly taking advantage of multi-core, multithreaded benefits, so AMD won’t be satisfied in the short term.
He also acknowledged that increasing the number of cores must be careful to avoid waste, and that software must be done well, which is a balance that will continue.
Papermaster says Infinity Fabric high-speed interconnect buses will continue to evolve to meet the needs of higher bandwidth technology standards such as DDR5 and PCIe 5.0.
From the current trend, AMD is expected to be able to launch DDR5, PCIe 5.0 between 2021 and 2022. In addition, Papermaster denies four-threaded technology.
