AMD's ultra-powerful EPYC Milan-X CPUs with 3D V-Cache are less than a month away
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.
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."
