Huge chip showcased

Lisa SU, AMD’s CEO has showed the first Naples chip and trust us, it looks good.

There is no surprise as this is a 32-core single socket processor that will be known as Epyc. So, in case you haven’t realized, the Opteron brand dies to makes some space for server – data center processors branded as Epyc.

Datacenter or server are a 21 billion market opportunity and AMD has played a little role. Lisa did point out that 95 percent of the market are x86 and that only Intel and AMD have the x86 instruction set architectures.
