AMD Zen6 May Feature Up To 32 Cores On A Single Die

AMD’s Zen5 architecture is still some time away from launch, but we already have information relating to its future successor, the Zen6 architecture. Both @Kepler_L2 and @InstLatX64 have claimed that the sixth iteration of Zen will feature up to 32 cores on a single CCD (core complex die).

InstLatX64 has conveniently attached a table listing all the Zen architectures known thus far, with details including model numbers, total thread count, CCDs, CCXes, core counts, and threads per core. Here, we can see the first two generation adopts 2 CCXes per CCD forming 8 cores per die, but both CCXes has since merged from Zen3 onwards (with the exception of Zen4c). All Zen CCDs up until Zen5c features 8 cores, while Zen5c itself will feature 16.

However, it looks like Zen6 will pack all 32 full-size cores into a single CCD, and given its reduction of total CCDs per socket, it is likely the Zen6 CCD will be physically larger (ignoring the die shrink factor introduced via newer process nodes). The chart indicates that Zen6 EPYC will feature 8 x 32 cores, totaling 256 cores per socket, or 512 cores per dual-socket system, totaling up to a massive 1,024 threads per system.

Kepler_L2 further adds that Zen6 will not only come in 32-core configuration, but 16-core and 8-core variants will be available to potentially address consumer markets. Assuming AMD releases the 16-core CCD for the consumer market, it’s possible that the future AMD flagship CPU may pack a total of 32 cores through two CCDs per chip.

In any case, this is stuff for the far future, so take it with a healthy amount of salt as usual. For now, everyone can expect details for the Zen5 architecture to arrive very soon, as Computex 2024 is kicking off in this June.
