Exaggeration

In the past, we publish a news commenting about a supposed APU that AMD was developing that would have up to 32 cores. Exaggeration? Well, according to the information you disclose at the time, this would be a plan for mid-2020.

However, according to a slide published in the CERN site, AMD can advance his plans a bit. The news was published on the Web site ExtremeTech, which reveals the possibility that AMD chips for servers already bring this feature later this year.

The new components (which may still use the name Opteron) will use the Zen architecture, which will allow you to put this monster amount of cores to run simultaneously (detail: we’re talking 32 cores with symmetric multi-threading). Such capability would be possible thanks to the manufacturing process, which will adopt FinFET transistors from 14 nanometers.

AMD did not confirm the information, but if the image is genuine, such processors shall submit an improvement of 40% in the instructions per clock compared to current devices. In addition, these chips also have support for DDR4 technology in eight-channel operating mode. New information should emerge in the coming months.
