We could be seeing a new 16-core beast from AMD featuring Zen 3 architecture, 7nm+ with load of L3 cache!
Taken from Techradar … AMD has confirmed that its Zen 3 processors will make their debut on October 8, and now it might have unwittingly revealed what we can expect from the next-gen CPUs.
An alleged internal document from AMD, which dates back to 10 June was shared by tipster CyberPunkCat, confirms that the Ryzen 4000 CPUs will be known as the AMD Family 19h Model 21h B20.
AMD’s current Zen and Zen 2 processors belong to Family 17h, so Family 19h likely refer to its next-generation Zen 3 architecture.
The leaked document reveals that the CPU family, codenamed ‘Vermeer’, may be designed for use in high-performance desktop platforms, featuring up to two CCD’s (Core/Cache Complex Dies) and a single I/O Die.
The alleged internal document also reveals that Zen 3 supports up to 512GB per DRAM channel or up to 1TB of ECC DRAM, clocked between 1333MHz and 3200MHz. Ryzen 4000 CPUs will also feature two unified memory controllers, each supporting a single DRAM channel.
