AMD EPYC Turin CPUs will have up to 192 cores and will be released in the second half of 2024 – Computer – News

AMD’s next generation of EPYC server processors will have up to 192 cores. CEO Lisa Su confirmed this during her keynote at Computex 2024. The processors will be codenamed Turin and will be available in the second half of 2024.

AMD’s upcoming EPYC Turin CPUs will be based on the new Zen 5 architecture, which the manufacturer also announced during Computex. According to AMD, this architecture delivers an average of up to 16 percent higher IPC compared to Zen 4, which will be released in 2022.

According to Su, the server CPUs will contain thirteen microchips in a single package. The company confirms that the Torino chipset will contain a maximum of 192 cores and 384 threads. This is probably related to a variant containing Zen 5c cores, which have a higher density than the regular Zen 5 architecture. According to previous rumors, Turin chipsets with “regular” Zen 5 cores will be available with a maximum of 128 cores. The new chips use the SP5 socket, which was also used for previous EPYC Genoa processors. Enterprise users can also upgrade existing Genoa systems to Torino.

In the demo, AMD claims the 128-core Turin CPU is up to 3.1x faster than the 64-core Intel Xeon 8592+ in a scientific STMV workload. According to AMD, its chip is also significantly faster on various AI workloads, for example around executing the open source Meta’s Llama 2 model and generating tokens for various AI tasks. AMD’s new Turin chipset will be available in the second half of 2024, but the manufacturer is not sharing a specific release date.
