AMD continues to reveal secrets regarding its Zen-based novelties. This time we are speaking about chipsets for the enterprise market under the Naples code name.
The first of the Naples CPUs mentioned encompasses 8 CCX computing units (CPU Complex) with each of them possessing 4 cores. All in all, there are 32 cores, and 64 threads are processed simultaneously. The chipset includes an embedded DDR4 memory 8 channel controller and a module of 64 64 PCI-Express 3.0 lines. The max RAM capacity is 2 TB. On top of everything AMD Infinity Fabric allows to form dual-processor systems and, thus, double all aforecited rates.
The AMD Co. is going to retail Naples specialties at a reasonable price to provide competition for Xeon E5-2600 Intel products. However, AMD based systems will feature more advanced specs and higher productivity.
Naples CPUs by AMD are expected to be officially introduced in the second quarter of 2017.
