The discussion is very broad and although it is appreciated that Papermaster cannot reveal more details, it has left many interesting, modern answers and what to expect from AMD in the near future.
Perhaps the most interesting part of this discussion and a good place to analyze it is the fact that AMD has a current trajectory referred to as n + 1 or n + 2, but at the same time they have a series of creative groups that are constantly looking for new functional dif- ferences and positions.
From 12 to 18 months of cadence: AMD's goal for years to come
It is strange to see AMD's announcement on something that has been kept as a cadence for its future products, but the fact is that a question about the development of its new facilities was necessary. Mark Papermaster says his company is up to date cadence for 12 to 18 months
This means that Zen 4 and Zen 5 will arrive between the year 2022 and 2024, depending on the factors related to the lithograph processes and the other entries in the industry standard. Perhaps the most exciting thing about this time period is the fact that the AMD CTO recognizes that when you reach a point where you have to fix a project on sale dates, ideas that are out of date and in time The window is put directly into the next-generation team.
That is, AMD sells the best of the time and then, and many stories are stored that can be included in the next build. This is important from a competitive point of view against Intel, as it will force the blue giant to surrender all at the same time if he really wants to compete.
The industry grew 7% in annual CPI in ST
The question about the upgrading of the Zen 3 IPC and the subsequent build-up has been forced in the same way, because rumors have increased over the past two months and figures are very close in some cases. The Papermaster did not want to go into details, logically, but announced something very closely related. And he says the annual growth rate in terms of performance has slowed down, about 7% on a single thread.
The purpose of AMD is to overcome that with each generation of products presented. If we connect with the data given above, then AMD will surpass that 7% every 12 months
Finally and when asked what Intel did with its 350e Xeon and 400 watts of TDP so what does AMD stand for such a strong jump under Moore's Law, Papermaster said we currently don't see the Act as such, but a Moore's law is different therefore he is not dead.
AMD has room for improvement in HPE
Therefore, the CTO of AMD ensures that the main concern of its partners in HPE is the implementation of the whole system, so if you want to maximize performance, cooling solutions must pass through the water, requiring close contact between AMD and OEMs, thus it is achieved in very high performance, because there is plenty of space at the top (for the reference ranges).
This suggests that 280 watts of EPYC 7H12 With 64 cores and 128 threads, they easily pass through processors with a much larger number of cores or higher waves, but then OEMs will have to be ready to install better cooling solutions.
Will we see it in 2020 processors of 128 cores for AMD?
