A few days ago, Intel announced a new processor blueprint. At the end of this year, the 10nm ESF process used in the 12th-generation Core Alder Lake was renamed Intel 7, The 7nm process upgrade was realized in disguise, coupled with a 45% reduction in cost, Intel has become aggressive in the desktop and server fields.
AMD CEO Su Zifeng was interviewed at the earnings conference a few days ago and talked about the competition between the two sides. He is very confident in AMD and emphasized that even the current generation of products are very, very competitive, and customers like AMD products very much. , The market demand is also growing.
If we only talk about EPYC in the server processor market, Su Zifeng said that EPYC has a leading market position in a number of detailed areas. AMD’s current EPYC third generation is 7nm Zen3 architecture, 64 cores, 128 threads, and 128 PCIe 4.0, which is indeed a lot ahead in technology.
In the second half of this year, Intel will have 12-generation Core. In the first half of next year, there will be a server version of the Sapphire Rapids processor. It uses the renamed Intel 7 process, which claims to have 10-15% higher performance per watt than the current 10nm SF process. It will indeed bring some pressure, because AMD’s 5nm Zen4 is expected to be available in the second half of next year, and there will be a year of vacancy.
AMD’s approach is to upgrade 7nm Zen3 at the end of this year and recently demonstrated 3D cache technology. Each computing chip is stacked with 64MB SRAM, which is officially called “3D V-Cache”, which can be used as an additional L3 cache. With the addition of 64MB originally integrated by the processor, the overall L3 cache capacity has reached 192MB.
This cache-enhanced processor code-named Brecken Rdige, launched at the end of this year, is expected to increase game performance by 15%, and it should not suffer from Intel’s 12th-generation Core Alder Lake.
