AMD’s lineup of Zen 4-based EPYC 7004 Series processors will reportedly boast a massive core count increase over its predecessors. The rumored spec bump was shared by leaker ExecutableFix, who tweeted a partial features list noting that the family would top out at 96 cores and 192 threads. This happens to be 32 more cores than what AMD’s Zen 3-based EPYC 7003 (“Milan”) and Zen 2-based EPYC 7002 (“Rome”) flagships were blessed with.
ExecutableFix’s leak also suggests that AMD’s Zen 4-based EPYC 7004 Series “Genoa” processors will include support for 12-channel DDR5-5200 memory, as well as support for up to 128 PCIe 5.0 lanes (160 for certain configurations). They’ll leverage the SP5 (LGA-6069) socket and feature a TDP/cTDP of 320/400 watts.

- 12-channel DDR5-5200
- 128 PCIe 5.0 lanes (160 for 2P)
- 320W TDP (cTDP 400W)
- SP5 (LGA-6096) socket
AMD’s roadmaps suggest that we will not be seeing its Zen 4-based EPYC 7004 Series processors until next year, but its Zen 3-based “Milan” family of server CPUs is just around the corner. Its flagship SKU is the EPYC 7763, which reportedly features 64/128 cores/threads, a base/boost clock of 2.45/3.50 GHz, a 256 MB L3 Cache, and a 280-watt TDP.

Genoa everyone 😍
This is what Genoa will look like under the hood compared to Rome/Milan. Everything in this picture is scaled 1:1— ExecutableFix (@ExecuFix) February 28, 2021
