Introduction: All Roads Lead To Rome

AMD has just launched its next-gen EPYC Rome CPUs under the new Zen 2 architecture, and boy are there some serious improvements here that is going to drive AMD's market share in the datacenter, and beyond.


The new EPYC family of CPUs are made on the same 7nm node that AMD is using on its new Ryzen 3000 series of processors as well as the new Navi-based Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700. Since the new EPYC Rome chips are made on the Zen 2 architecture we have a nice 15% IPC improvement just to start things off.

AMD's new EPYC 7742 in Dr. Lisa Su's own words becomes the highest performance x86 processor in the world.


A refresher course on the new Zen 2 architecture and 7nm node.
