Shipping mid-2019

A decent part of AMD's CES 2019 keynote hosted by AMD CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, was about the upcoming second generation EPYC CPUs, confirming it is on track and will be shipping in the middle of the year.

Being the world's first 7nm datacenter CPU, the 2nd generation EPYC will provide 2X performance per socket and 4X floating performance per socket, both compared to the previous generation.

Su was also keen to note that it will be socket compatible with existing EPYC infrastructure, making upgrading really easy.

According to a performance demo at the keynote, single AMD 2nd generation EPYC CPU managed to outperform two Intel Xeon 8180 CPUs.

AMD was proud to note that the 2nd generation EPYC will be shipping in the middle of 2019.
