[Anand] An Interview with AMD’s Forrest Norrod: Naples, Rome, Milan, & Genoa

Quote:
There’s no getting away from the fact that AMD’s big revenue potential exists in the server space. While the glitz and the glamor is all about the Ryzen, the big money is with EPYC. Heading up AMD’s EPYC efforts, as well as their extended collaborations in the embedded and semi-custom segments, is Forrest Norrod, the SVP and GM of the Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Group at AMD. We spent some time at Computex talking with Forrest about the upcoming premise of Rome, and how AMD now sees itself in the server and enterprise ecosystem.

There are some good bits of relevant info in there, namely when it comes to Zen 3 and 4. Milan (Zen 3) is supposed to remove any remaining asterisks when compared to Intel's CPU's and have the same or better IPC across all workloads. Also, Milan, due in mid-2020, will still be on the SP3 socket and use DDR4. That makes it probable that Zen 3 on the desktop will also be on the current socket and be backwards compatible with the current and some of the past motherboards and that would align with the 2020 promise that AMD made. It's more or less implied that Genoa (Zen 4) will be on a different socket and use DDR5.

I'll definitely wait for Zen 3 before upgrading my Zen 1 CPU.
