Foreign media pointed out that the EPYC 7xxx seriesserverThe processor is based on the recently released 7nm Zen 2 architecture (the desktop version is the Ruilong/Ryzen series).

Soon after, a Belgian hardware retailer called 2Compute revealed information on the price, cache, and core clock rate of the series. Of course, before the official release, everything still has time to test.

It is reported that AMD plans to introduce 64/ 48 / 32 / 24 / 16 / 12 / 8 core new EPYC Rome processors to the market, and most of them have three derivative configuration options.

Includes a higher-end dual-slot compatible version, a single-slot version with the same specifications (with one or two exceptions), and an affordable entry-level version (mainly energy efficient).

The processors range in price from $510 to $7,800 (3,500 to 5.4 million RMB), but the most appealing ones are the $5,000 (34,400 RMB) start-up, 64-core/128-thread EPYC 7742.

As a comparison,IntelXeon Platinum (IntelThe Xeon Platinum series offers only 28 core / 56 thread options, but the clock speed is slightly higher (3.8GHz vs 3.35GHz).

In addition, AMD offers the $1500 (103,000 RMB), 24 core / 48 thread option (EPYC 7402) for the Snapdragon 7xxx series processors.

Although it sells for $300 more than the equivalent Threadripper and 3.35GHz, the Snapdragon platform also features PCIe 4.0 and 128 PCIe channels.

The latest leaked PPT also said that the Epyc Rome series processors will be equipped with memory controllers that support eight channels @ 3200MHz and support up to 4TB of RAM per slot.

In contrast, Intel currently supports only 6 memory channels @ 2TB of 2666MHz memory. It should be noted that Intel's high-end processors have significantly higher TDPs, lower entry-level products, and fewer total caches.

In summary, the cost of the AMD 32 Core Opteron processor is 29% better than the Intel 28 core version (the 24 / 16 core version is 57% / 69%, respectively).

As for whether the AMD Opteron 7xxx series can overturn the position of the Intel Xeon Platinum product line in the server market, it remains to be seen.
