AMD maintained its lead over Intel last year with its EPYC Genoa CPUs, but that situation is being tested again with the launch of the Xeon Sapphire Rapids CPUs.
AMD confirmed in its recent Q4 2022 earnings call that it plans to launch four new data center products in 2023, including Genoa-X, Bergamo, Siena and Instinct MI300.
It is reported that AMD EPYC Bergamo CPU will be launched in the first half of 2023, followed by Instinct MI300 APU in the second half of 2023.
The main difference is that Genoa is optimized for higher frequency workloads, while Bergamo is optimized for higher throughput workloads.
The AMD Instinct MI300 is a multi-chip and multi-IP Instinct gas pedal that will power the 2+ Exaflops El Capitan supercomputer with not only a CDNA 3 GPU core, but also a next-generation Zen 4 CPU core.
The latest specs for the AMD Instinct MI300 show that this APU is a “monster of a small-chip design” that will include multiple 5nm-based 3D small-chip packages with a total of 146 billion transistors, a total of 24 datacenter-oriented Zen 4 CPU cores and 128 GB of HBM3 memory with an 8192-bit bus bit width in addition to the CDNA 3 architecture GPU.
