AMD has revealed that its third-gen line of processors for data-centers and similar professional use-cases, also commonly known as EPYC Milan, will launch on March 15, 2021. It is thought to offer multiple variants that go up to 64 cores, some of which have been seen on benchmarks tearing through their Intel competition and closest Threadripper analogs.

AMD has finally confirmed that the EPYC Milan series will launch on March 15, 2021, at 8:00 PDT/17:00 CET. The event will, therefore, unleash CPUs hotly awaited among professional and industrial users, and also probably fans of hugely powerful processing in general.

This upcoming series, also provisionally known as the AMD EPYC 7xx3 series, packs up to 64 Zen 3 (Vermeer) cores, base clocks of up to 2.45GHz, up to 280W TDPs and 256 MB L3 caches. Their maker has already claimed that the Xeon Gold 6258R falls behind by up to 68% compared to a Milan - although the new chip had 32 cores compared to the Intel's 28.

Therefore, it will be good to finally find out which 7xx3 variant AMD was referring to, not to mention more detailed 3rd-gen EPYC specs and features. The company already asserts that they will be the last word in data-center performance - on the other hand, their Zen 4-equipped Genoa successors are already out there on the leaks landscape, suggesting they might have something to say about that before too long.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
