AMD EPYC 9664 Genoa 96 Core monster Benchmarked in Latest Cache and Memory tests
AMD EPYC 9664. Just a few weeks ago, we reported on AMD’s EPYC 9000 “Genoa” CPU family based on the Zen 4 core architecture and its flagship EPYC 9664 SKU, which is now confirmed by Yuuki AnS.
The EPYC 9664 “Genoa” CPU from AMD has up to 96 cores, 192 threads, 480 MB of cache, and a maximum power consumption of 400 watts.
It has already been confirmed to be compatible with the new SP5 platform, which introduces a new socket, therefore SP3 compatibility will continue until EPYC Milan. New features include 12-channel DDR5-5200 memory support, 128 PCIe Gen 5 Lanes Per CPU, and up to 700W TDP limitations for the LGA 6096 “SP5” socket would also be included in the EPYC 9000 “Genoa” CPUs.
The leaker claims that the AMD EPYC 9664 will be part of the Genoa EPYC 9000 series and will be called as the AMD EPYC 9664. With a total of 96 cores and 192 threads, the CPU will be able to deliver the largest core count in the Genoa family. AMD’s Genoa processor will include up to 12 CCDs in total to reach 96 cores. The Zen 4 architecture will be used in each of the CCD’s eight cores. Core and thread count have increased by 50% over the Milan-X 64 core and 128 thread models.
Specifications for AMD EPYC 9000 Genoa CPU SKUs:
L3 cache per CCD will be shared by all Zen 4 cores within the CCD, and each core will have a total of 1 MB L2 cache. The highest SKU has 384 MB of L3 cache and 96 MB of L2 cache, resulting in a total of 480 MB of cache space. As a reference, the EPYC 7773X, the most powerful EPYC Milan-X CPU, has 256 MB of L3 and 32 MB of L2 for a total of 288 MB of cache. Cache storage alone has increased by 67 percent.
Genoa’s EPYC 9664 has 384MB of L3 cache, 32MB per CCD, and 96MB of L2 cache, which totals to 480MB of cache.
Cache: AMD EPYC 773X (Milan-X) = 288 MB with 256 MB L3 (per CCD) and 32 MB L2 (per core), respectively.

It is unclear what the base and boost frequencies will be in the final product; only the ES specifications provide an idea of what they will be. Because there are 96 cores, the all-core boost frequency should be around 2 GHz. Rather to comparison, the EPYC 7773X may boost to a clock speed of up to three times as fast as the aforementioned processor. While there are more cores, Genoa chips will be able to clock at a greater rate. Remember that the chip’s TDP is set at 400W, but this is not its maximum power. Previously leaked samples show that EPYC Genoa CPUs can use up to 750-800W of electricity at their maximum. As a result, AMD’s EPYC 9000 “Genoa” server CPU family will provide a significant performance boost. It is safe to say that 192 cores and 384 threads on two sockets will break several world records. We have already seen an incomplete 128 core/256 thread setup defeat all of the current generation server CPUs. Second half of this year is projected to see the launch of the AMD EPYC 9000 Genoa CPUs.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q1: What may AMD EPYC be used for?
Powered by AMD EPYCTM, dual-socket servers with up to 128 cores, 4 TB of memory and up to 160 PCIe® 4 I/O lanes can efficiently handle the most demanding applications.
Q2: Is Threadripper superior than EPYC?
Like other high core count CPUs, Threadripper’s core frequency is higher than that of most high-core count processors, with a single core Boost speed of 4.3-4.5GHz. CAD and architecture benefit from this as well as multi-threaded programmes like Media & Entertainment and Media & Entertainment.
Q3: Are EPYC and Ryzen the same thing?
Epyc and Threadripper processors have clock rates ranging from 2 GHz to 3.7 GHz. When comparing boost clock speeds, the differences become much more evident. Also, certain Ryzen CPUs can reach speeds of up to 4.7 GHz. It’s worth noting that there are only two Threadripper CPUs also on the market that can reach this speed.
Q4: What does EPYC stands for?
An acronym for the “Eastern Pacific Yacht Club”: EPYC (San Diego, CA)
Q5: Who use EPYC processors?
Servers from Atos, Cisco, Dell, Gigabyte, HPE, Lenovo, QCT, and Supermicro are currently shipping with the latest AMD EPYC CPUs and AMD 3-D V-Cache technology.
