AMD previously announced that its EPYC Milan-X chips with 3D V-Cache will be released in Q1 2022 but didn't give a set release month or date. At the SIG Annual Tech Conference 2022, Dan McNamara, AMD's senior vice president of the Business Unit, has now revealed when we can finally expect the new chips to hit the market.

Back in November 2021, AMD revealed EPYC Milan-X CPUs with 3D V-Cache. 3D V-Cache is an extra 64 MB of L3 cache stacked on top of existing compute chiplets on Ryzen chips. With an extra 64 MB of L3 cache, the upcoming AMD EPYC Milan-X processors will have an astounding 768 MB of L3 cache per chip for a total of 804 MB of cache per socket.

Due to the increased cache, AMD claimed an average 50% performance bump in certain workloads. The company had also announced that the EPYC Milan-X chips will be available in Q1 2022.

Dan McNamara has now revealed the EPYC Milan-X CPUs with the 3D V-Cache will be available by the end of March 2022. He also said that the processors are already in the hands of some customers.

A significant uptick in the cache dramatically increases the cache hit rate, resulting in noticeable performance gains. According to Dan," [Milan-X] is going to deliver up to a 50% performance increase across technical computing workloads like computational fluid dynamics, EDA, and any sort of advanced physics modeling are going to see a tremendous uplift here."
