According to the AMD roadmap, after the completion of this year's 7nm Zen2 architecture, the new generation is the Zen3 architecture, and now the architecture design has been completed, and the stream chip has been successful. it is expected to be released in 2020, using an upgraded 7nm process.
From the previous information, the Zen3 architecture of AMD should be improved on the basis of Zen2, similar to the upgrade of Zen to Zen architecture in that year, but Forrest Norrod, senior vice president of AMD, data center and general manager of embedded business, gave a different statement in an interview with foreign media.
Forrest norrod pointed out in response to the zen3 architecture IPC performance used by Milan (Milan, the code of the third generation epyc Xiaolong processor), the zen3 architecture is a new architecture design, not like the first generation epyc upgraded to the second generation epyc of zen2 architecture.
Forrest Norrod says AMD's Zen2 architecture has provided far more IPC performance improvements than normal
As for the zen3 architecture, Forrest norrod is confident that it can meet the expectations of the new generation architecture. In a word, he strongly suggests that the performance of zen3's IPC can be improved significantly, at least as well as that of zen2.
In addition, the frequency of Milan processor will be higher, after all, the 7nm process is enhanced, more advanced than the current 7nm Zen2 process.
In response to processor performance expectations, Forrest norrod said that AMD has strong confidence in making each generation of CPU architecture have significant IPC performance improvement.
