AMD has finally announced a date for its next-gen processors codenamed “Milan”. We could simply tell you that it is on March 15. That was the plan. Then I got the cover image from our Editor-in-Chief who is a cookie aficionado. Instead of simply saying it is being launched on the “Ides of March” he sent me this last night as the way he is remembering (other than preparing our launch coverage.)
AMD may or may not have been working with Pepperidge Farm for many years to message when the next-gen server processors will be launched. Please note, based on this the Dark Chocolate version seems to reference an EPYC 8000 series.
All “Milan Milano” fun aside, there is not much to the press release, but we have a rule of not just re-posting press releases without some sort of value-add. Here, admittedly our value add is a little fun.
Excerpt From the Press Release
AMD will host a digital global launch of the new 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors on Monday, March 15, 2021 at 8 a.m. PT / 11 a.m. ET.
The digital launch is slated to feature presentations by AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su, Executive Vice President of Technology and Engineering and CTO Mark Papermaster, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Business Group, Forrest Norrod, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Server Business Unit, Dan McNamara and appearances by industry-leading data center partners and customers.
The launch will be accessible on the 3rd Gen AMD EPYC launch site starting at 8 a.m. PT/11 a.m. ET. A replay of the webcast can be accessed after the conclusion of the live stream event and will be available for one year after the event. (Source: AMD)
You can check out the 3rd Gen AMD EPYC launch site which will host the event. Better yet (or in addition) you can check STH for our coverage as soon as we can post it. We were specifically asked not to post anything in this coverage, so you get the “Milan Milano.”
We cannot go into detail about AMD EPYC Milan, nor the upcoming Intel Ice Lake Xeons. As always though, we will bring information to our readers as we are allowed to.
Darn, for a minute there I thought an Epyc would be included in each bag of cookies.
I thought it was April 1st for a second there. Wow time flew, if that were the case!
I guess INTEL is going to make a “big” announcement on the 14th 🙂
In fact, it is already written in the “signs” which the wise people who can see:
March = 3, 14, 15 which means 3.1415…
@domih – a new Intel arch named Pie Cake?
Does this mean that we’ll finally get the Milan reviews that STH has been sitting on for months?
When review time comes, are you only going to review the milk chocolate variant?
What did I see on STH? This is great creativity. A lite article on information, but if you wanted to get us to remember a date, I’d say high effectiveness.
Okay, but when do we get Threadripper 5000??
Ha I’m laughin at this one
On March 15th EPYC Milan will be immediateli available also on DELL, HP, Lenovo, etc servers ? Or we will have to wait more?
Defenetley worth waiting,
i’m curious about STH opinion 😉
