Pro gamers and the importance of sleep
Based on leaks of AMD's master product list that surfaced this week, the microchip giant appears to be planning to release more EPYC-based server CPUs with higher TDP ratings. This is after the announcement of the next flagship CPU in AMD's high-performance computing market in September this year, the 64-core EPYC 7H12 has a whopping 280W TDP.
According to the Product Master list, EPYC 7H12 is the The only chip in the Rome series that has increased the TDP to 280 W. We can expect the slightly lower 240 W TDP from the EPYC 7R22 and EPYC 7R32 and EPYC 7V12.
At this stage, almost nothing is known about CPUs, especially when we can expect them to be on the market, regardless of whether AMD is targeting a specific part of the market or if they will become an OEM variant of the EPYC 7H12. Also, we don't know how the EPYC 7R22 and EPYC 7R32 differ from the already released EPYC 7H12. Other models may contain minor changes or a set of new features that we do not yet understand. The
Main Product List also subdivides several EPYC chips with TDP ratings ranging from 180W to 225W. Although similar to the 280W model, we don't know much about them.
Based on our knowledge of EPYC 7H12 (64 cores, 128 threads, 2.6 GHz base clock speed, 3.3 GHz turbo boost, 256 MB L3 cache, 280 W TDP, and compatibility with other Rome CPUs), it is targeted to data centers, which contain a large number of servers, where power consumption considerations are archived to benefit performance.
It is worth remembering that Product Master is not a reliable indicator of AMD's future plans, it is more like a product that the company may decide to release in the future, but without any guarantees. In theory, it only applies to the inner eye.
Additionally, these types of lists often contain products that have never been targeted at the global consumer or business market, and their models are customized for manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
