Processors with 64 cores and over 800MB of cache. AMD Epyc Milan-X Generation Revealed

Published

on

In addition to the first of its kind Instinct MI200 accelerators, AMD also introduced new Epyc server processors.

The new CPUs still belong to the third generation of Epyc and are based on the same Zen 3 architecture. But they received an additional third-level cache, implemented using 3D V-Cache technology. Thanks to this, the amount of cache memory in the new CPUs is simply huge: it is 768 MB! In this case, this is a regular internal cache with a volume of 256 MB, like in the usual third-generation Epyc and plus an additional eight memory chips of 64 MB (one chip for each chiplet). AMD itself generally speaks of 804 MB of cache memory, but in this case, the L2 cache is also considered (32 MB). Otherwise, there are practically no differences from last year’s CPUs: the same number of cores remain, the frequencies have changed minimally.

CPU # Of cores / threads Frequencies, GHz L3 cache, MB TDP, W
Epyc 7773X 64/128 2.2-3.5 512 + 256 280
Epyc 7573X 32/64 2.8-3.6 512 + 256 280
Epyc 7473X 24/48 2.8-3.7 512 + 256 240
Epyc 7373X 16/32 3.05-3.8 512 + 256 240

AMD speaks of performance gains in a wide range: from 33% to 66%, but the gain is provided solely by the cache memory, which means that it will not manifest itself in all tasks. But the socket has not changed, and older motherboards will support new CPUs after a BIOS update. The processors will be available as off-the-shelf systems early next year.

Bloomberg editor Mark Gurman spoke about the new Apple M2

Earlier this month, Apple announced the new M2 processor at the WWDC presentation. It is used in the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, but Cupertino is said to be preparing several modifications of it. Apple is said to be preparing M2 Pro, M2 Max, M2 Ultra, and M2 Extreme processors for Mac mini, MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro devices.

Bloomberg editor Mark Gurman said that Mac mini computers will receive options with M2 and M2 Pro processors. The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops will feature the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. An entry-level 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip is also expected. Their release date is unknown.

Finally, Gurman believes that Apple plans to introduce the M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme chips. The company has previously hinted that the Mac Pro could be released soon, but no further details have been released. Perhaps these processors are just intended for the Mac Pro.

The timing of the announcement and release of the most powerful PC from Apple has not yet been specified.

Previously, Gurman said that the MacBook Air (2022) will be released in the colors of older models.

Valve Specialist Explains Why You Shouldnt Install Too Long SSDs

A few days ago, information appeared on the network that it was possible to install a longer SSD in the Steam Deck than planned. However, such interference may adversely affect the life of the console.

By default, the Steam Deck uses a 30mm SSD, however, players were able to install a 42mm long model with more memory. To do this, I had to move the fixing screw on the motherboard and remove the thermal pad.

According to Valve designer Lawrence Young, who participated in the development of the console, this should not be done. The fact is that larger drives consume more energy and heat up more. And ditching the thermal pad makes things even worse as the console starts to overheat.

Please, do not do that. The charger chip becomes very hot, so do not move nearby thermal pads. In addition, most M.2 2242 drives use more power and run hotter than the ones the Steam Deck is designed to handle. It may seem that this modification works, but it will significantly reduce the life of your portable PC.‘, Young said.

Note that the console officially supports three SSD options – 64 GB, 256 GB and a faster 512 GB.

Previously, it was reported how you can significantly increase the autonomy of the Steam Deck console.

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will not be as huge as that of the GeForce RTX 40

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics

Rumors are actively attributing huge power consumption up to 600 W and even higher to GeForce RTX 40 video cards. Radeon RX 7000 cards will also consume more than the current generation.

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will not be as huge as that of the GeForce RTX 40

AMD Senior Vice President Sam Naffziger revealed some details about the RDNA 3 architecture and products based on it. He also touched upon the topic of energy consumption.

The demand for gaming and computing performance is increasing, while at the same time the development of technical processes is slowing down quite sharply. Thus, the power level will only increase. We now have a multi-year roadmap with very significant energy efficiency improvements to offset this curve, but the trend is there.

Performance is critical, but even if our designs are more energy efficient, that doesn’t mean we won’t raise power levels if competitors are doing the same. They’ll just have to raise them much higher than us.

Thus, the Radeon RX 7000 line, despite the previously stated 50 percent advantage (over the RX 6000) in power efficiency, will stand out for its high power consumption simply because of the huge performance boost. At the same time, AMD is confident that Nvidia will have to increase power consumption even higher.

For now, the RX 6000 line is more power efficient than the GeForce RTX 30, although the difference isn’t huge. Previously, there were rumors that the top-end RX 7900 XT will consume 450 watts versus 600 watts in the case of the RTX 4090, but so far these are just rumors.
