AMD EPYC Genoa and Intel Sapphire Rapids-SP platforms pose for the camera

Today we come across the first image of a platform AMD SP5who will use a design LGA 6096 pin capable of delivering up to 700W of power, and which will be designed to bring the next generation of AMD EPYC processors to life, being Genoa the first to release it, then reach later Bergamowhich will double the number of cores currently available in the company’s line of processors.

The image in question is a double socket systemyou therefore have access to no less than 24 DIMM slots (Each CPU supports a 12-channel memory configuration.)

AMD SP5 Platform for EPYC Genoa

Regarding the part of the processors, this socket will be released by the family AMD EPYC Genoawhere its top-of-the-range model will benefit from a configuration of up to 96 cores with 192 processing threads through the use of the manufacturing process of 5nm of TSMC, as well as the use of the new architecture AMD Zen4.

AMD EPYC Genoa will also launch the interface PCI Express 5.0 giving access to a total of 128 lines, 160 for Dual Socket configurations. We continue with a configuration of 12 channels of DDR5 RAM, which will allow us to manage up to 3 TB of RAMand its launch would take place during the second half of 2022.

Intel LGA4677 platform for Sapphire Rapids-SP processors

On the other hand, we have exactly the same but with a platform Intel Sapphire Rapids-SP with a dual socket configuration LGA4677except that here we have 32 DDR5 DIMM slots that allow you to install up to 8 TB of RAM and has a fairly similar VRM of 34 power stages (vs 35), which clearly shows that these CPUs will be power hungry, because unlike Genoa, these CPUs could overcome this barrier of 700W consumptionthe board is therefore powered via a 12-pin connector + 2x 8-pin EPS.

According to the leaked information, it should be remembered that its high-end CPU will be able to reach 56 cores and 112 threads seasoned with the most modern technologies on the market, such as memory access DDR5 in the form of a configuration Octa(8)-Channel @ 4800MHz and nothing less to offer up to 80x PCI-Express 5.0 lanes per processor. Added to this is the possibility of accessing special models with up to 64 GB of HBM2e memory Promising performance improvements of up to 180% over AMD EPYC MILAN processors in computational fluid dynamics (OpenFOAM) workloads.
