AMD announces 96 Core CPU with over 1GB of cache

During the AMD data center & AI technology premiere, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su announced a multitude of different AI-related hardware and software that AMD has been working on. One of the most impressive of which is the new AMD Genoa-X CPU with over 1GB of L3 cache! AMD announces 96 Core CPU with over 1GB of cache.

Yeah, that’s right, this isn’t another standard gaming Chip. The brand new Genoa-X CPU from AMD is shattering records in the CPU space, delivering a massive 96 CPU cores, and 192 threads, all with the help of AMD’s 3D V-cache – allowing up to 1.1GB of total cache.

Even though 3D V-Cache has gained attention mainly in gaming CPUs like the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, it was actually introduced first in 3rd Generation Epyc Milan-X CPUs. These CPUs used eight V-Cache chiplets to increase the L3 cache of Milan CPUs by 512MB.

The upcoming Genoa-X CPUs will also utilize the 3D V-Cache technology found in Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs, but they will offer more than 1GB of L3 cache, which is a first for any CPU.

The main rival of Genoa-X is Intel’s Sapphire Rapids Xeon Max CPU. It uses HBM2 technology to provide a maximum of 64GB of L4 cache.

This means that AMD ranks second in terms of cache capacity. However, Genoa-X has an advantage with its 96 cores compared to Sapphire Rapids, which only supports up to 56 cores.

Additionally, the HBM2-powered L4 cache in Sapphire Rapids is expected to have higher latency compared to Genoa-X’s more traditional L3 cache.

It’s important to note that both of these CPUs are specialized and not as commonly used as their lower-capacity counterparts.

Genoa-X vs Genoa CPU comparison

What’s different between the Genoa-X vs Genoa flagships? Well, there’s not much on paper, as we’re unaware of any intimate details such as clock speeds and boost speeds.

The only thing we know for sure that is different about the Genoa-X flagship CPU is the amount of cache it possesses over the Genoa-based CPU flagship.

The top dog Genoa-X CPU will feature a massive 1,248MB combined L2 and L3 cache, massive when compared to Genoa’s meager 480MB combined cache.
