AMD EPYC Bergamo and Genoa-X CPUs Are Here: Up To 128 Cores, 256 Threads

AMD EPYC Bergamo and Genoa-X CPUs Are Here: Up To 128 Cores, 256 Threads
Jul 21, 2023

AMD's new EPYC "Bergamo" and "Genoa-X" processors have officially launched, with some truly insane performance underneath all that silicon... with up to 128 cores and 256 threads of CPU power at their disposal. Impressive stuff, to say the least.

The big difference here is that the EPYC "Genoa-X" processors feature up to 96 cores and 192 threads of CPU power using the same Zen 4 High-Performance Cores, with up to a truly whopping 1.1GB of L3 cache. AMD has its performance-packed 2nd Gen Stacked 3D V-Cache design inside, with OEM availability not far away: Q3 2023.

But, the new EPYC "Bergamo" CPUs feature up to a truly performance-ready  Zen 4C-based 128 cores and 256 threads, with the "best energy efficiency" and a huge 82 billion transistors. Bergamo uses its Zen 4C cores which are compute density optimised for the cloud, based on the same core IP that Zen 4 uses.

Some highlighted features of AMD's Genoa-X CPUs include:

  • Same Zen 4 High-Performance Cores
  • Up To 96 Cores / 192 Threads
  • Up To 1.1 GB of L3 Cache
  • 2nd Gen Stacked 3D V-Cache Design
  • SP5 Socket Compatibility
  • AMD Infinity Guard
  • Up To 2.9x Faster Than Sapphire Rapids
  • Three EPYC 9004X SKUs
  • OEM Availability In Q3 2023

Some of the features of Bergamo include:

  • Up To 128 Zen 4C Cores
  • Consistent x86 ISA
  • 82 Billion Transistors
  • Greatest vCPU Density
  • Best Energy Efficiency
  • 35% Smaller Core Die Area With the Same Process
  • Up To 2.6x Faster Than Sapphire Rapids In Cloud-Native Workloads

Phoronix has a review of the new AMD EPYC 9754 "Bergamo" and AMD EPYC 9684X "Genoa-X" processors, showing that they are indeed the fastest CPUs on the block. Intel... I'd say take note, but AMD has been stomping all over your business for years now, and this only asserts even more dominance in the super high-end HPC, server, and cloud markets.
