AMD Zen CPU engineering sample specifications leak

 

The specification of some of AMD's early Zen Silicon have been leaked online, with a quad-core and octo-core variants for the AM4 socket and 24 and 32 core CPUs for the server markets.  

These engineering samples are set as revision A0, making these the first set of engineering samples to leave AMD if these leaks are correct. The 4-core variant is set to have a TDP of 65W and the 8-core variant is set to have a TDP of 95W with clock speeds of 2.8GHz to 3.2GHz. These CPUs will throttle down to 550MHz at idle allowing these CPUs to draw as little as 2.5-5W at idle.

Below are the specifications of these alleged AMD Zen engineering samples, two of which are designed for desktop AM4 motherboards and two which are designed for AMD's SP3 server platform.

L3 Cache8MB16MB48MB64MB

 

Typically early engineering samples of CPUs will come at lower clock speeds than their final retail counterparts, meaning that it is likely that AMD's Zen CPUs will run at higher clock speeds when it releases. 

Right now it looks like AMD's Zen CPUs will be hitting the market in late 2016 or early 2017.

Hmm, a whole 16 GB of L3 on the 8 core, count me in


On a side note this should probably read MB... Quote

That wattage though... did they learn nothing from the 9590..Quote

I can't possibly see what's wrong with the 9590, it was the best thing a college student could buy, intel couldn't offer something that would serve as a room heater too for that price Quote

You realize that is a 32 core cpu...that still draws less power than 8 core 9590 ?Quote

95W for a 8 core desktop @3.2Ghz ? that seems pretty cool for me, it's not on the level of intel CPU, but hey ! they have something like 10 time less money for R&D than intel......
the 180W thingy is only for pro, its like the Xeons, some have a very high TDP
EDIT : someone knows if the big AM4 is 8 real cores or 4 cores +HT ?Quote
