AMD’s Genoa lineup is targeted for the workstation department powering heavy workloads. The leaked EPYC 9664 is the fastest x86-64 ISA chip in the market crushing Intel at all fronts. Team blue, due to various delays still has not launched its answer to AMD’s Milan (last gen EPYC series). The Genoa lineup may as well be the final nail in the coffin for Intel.
yuuki_ans on Twitter confirmed that AMD’s EPYC Genoa is officialy ready for launch. Adding on to that, these CPUs should arrive alongside AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs. Interestingly, this declares all our previous Q4 2022 dates null and void. AMD really did hit the gas and pulled one over Intel. This spells major trouble for Chipzilla, as they may lose a massive share in the server department.

AMD’s Zen4 based mainstream CPUs (Ryzen 7000) are set to launch on the 15th of September, 2022. These CPUs currently have little to no benchmarks available except for the R5 7600X, which was possibly doped as per various sources.
The flagship from Genoa, the EPYC 9664 features 96 cores / 192 threads requiring 400W of power. This beast has been kept in the shadows due to the lack of tests, but we know for sure it will wreak havoc on every other CPU once it releases.
This lineup will be based on TSMC’s 5nm process node utilizing the Zen4 architecture. So far, a few CPUs have been leaked namely:
AMD’s Zen4 is set to start shipping on the 15th of September, 2022. The official announcement will be made on the 29th of August. Expect Intel’s Raptor Lake to arrive sometime in October.
