AMD Adds Zen 3 Code to Linux Kernel: Fourth Quarter

AMD will complete the layout of the 7nm Zen 2 architecture product this year, as well as the Zen 3 by the end of the year. According to CEO Dr. Su Zifeng in his sponsored talk show, “Bring Up,” the Zen 3 is going well and very exciting. In fact, it has been discovered by exposure sources that Zen 3’s code has recently appeared in Linux Kernel’s error detection and correction, specifically “Family 19h” and the current Zen2 is “Family 17h”.

According to an earlier EPYC 7000 Dragon processor roadmap that appeared after an earlier appearance in AMD’s official video, the Zen 3 architecture is still based on a 7nm process, with a single-path maximum of 64 cores, with the server platform code “Milan” and native support for PCIe 4.0.

In addition, the Zen 3 processor was streaming as early as the second quarter of last year, and in theory, the third quarter will be fully ready, with the fourth quarter on schedule. According to AMD CTO, the IPC increase is still in double digits.
