Some AMD Zen leaks (ES clocks, PCI info, Rambus DDR PHY, Roadmaps) [UPDATED]

Update: Small corrections, comments on PCIe dump, AoTS leaks, link to more slides added.
TL;DR: First Zen OPN and PCIe info leaked. Additionally I do a recap of some other recent leaks.

Planet3DNow! forum user "Crashtest" posted a Zen ES OPN and PCI device info (behind the spoiler button), which somehow landed in the CPU-Z and SIV databases.

So the OPN is "1D2801A2M88E4_32/28_N". Using the already known schema, "D" stands for desktop, "28" for the base clock frequency (2.8GHz), the first "8" of "88" for the number of cores. And more clearly, "32/28" stand for turbo boost frequency (3.2GHz), and the base clock again (2.8GHz). This matches the information given for the 8C DT ES in an AnandTech forum posting recently:
"The most exciting part is core clock. The 8c/95W variant's base clock is 2.8GHz, all core boost is 3.05GHz and maximum boost is 3.2GHz."
This hasn't been confirmed in this way before (except that I heard it is true). So until now there was nothing available, that actually supported the information posted there.

The PCI information found in the SIV database looks as follows:

Total of 7 PCI buses and 39 PCI devices in 0.040 seconds.
Source: SIV database

Update #1: As "Crashtest" explains in a later posting, the respective Summit Ridge system (w/ Myrtle mainboard) seems to have at least 36 PCIe lanes. According to him, the listed configuration seems to be a bit chaotic. BTW, "Promotory" should actually be written "Promontory".

Update #2: Thanks to the OPN, Planet3DNow! user "BoMbY" identified some Ashes of the Singularity benchmark results, which were run on two different Zen engineering samples. One had the same OPN, while the other had a slightly different one ("2D" instead of "1D"). As they've been removed from the AotS database, you can find them archived here.

Next there was a BitsAndChips article about the likely provider of the DDR4 PHY found on Zen based processors: Rambus. That speculation is based on the given details the author learned from his sources, which fit well to what Rambus recently announced regarding their 3200 Mbps DDR4 PHY available for Globalfoundries' 14LPP process. You can learn a bit more about their technology here.

Another interesting bit of info are two AMD roadmaps, which look real. But as one recently could see with this Athlon X8K die shot posted at Reddit, even the quality of die shot fakes can be rather high (also see my analysis there). In that case the creator of the die shot wrote me, that he actually just tried to check the viability of such a product regarding die size and thus processing costs. Back to the roadmaps.

For 2017 they show:
  • Raven Ridge APUs for the FP5 socket (4C/8T, <=12 gfx CUs, 4-35W TDP)
  • higher TDP models (65-95W) for the AM4 socket (also 4C/8T and an unknown number of gfx CUs)
  • also AM4 based Summit Ridge CPUs with 8C/16T and TDPs of 65 to 95W
Most of the boxes are marked as "AMD PRO", which usually stands for a separate series of products targeted at commercial customers. Due to special certification programmes, perhaps also additional testing, and of course the integration in ready to ship OEM hardware, these products might hit the shelves a bit later than consumer variants.

There is also a notable difference in the listed processes: "14nm SoC" for Raven Ridge, and "14nm FinFET" for Summit Ridge. I assume, that the "14nm SoC" process might refer to a different metal layer density, as recently covered in an article by Hiroshige Goto (Japanese) about APUs and AMD's FinFET efforts. Thus "FinFET" could stand for less dense lower metal layers, which would allow for somewhat higher clock speeds due to lower wire delays.

A note on the slides: I saw some unusual pixel patterns and spacings in the "14nm SoC" and "14nm FinFET" boxes (aside from different sizes). I'd expect a scaled, interpolated PowerPoint slide to show subpixel positioning of single characters. But I saw only pixel exact 1 or 2 pixel spacings with exactly similar interpolated pixels around the characters. I'll try to reproduce this in PPT.

In the end, these slides (if real) might mean, that there is no desktop Zen available in 2016 (even not as the promised sampling at the end of the year). But that is not for sure, yet. My own GCC patch based launch speculation gave a rough launch date range between 10/2016 and 05/2017.

Update #3: You can find the complete two slides and an additional one here. These don't look like being faked, although some details look a bit awkward. But this might be attributed to a smaller target audience (I suppose decision makers with more interests in dates and specs).

I was wondering whether this could also be a possibility for what the Zen S/N are referring to based on the leaks and rumors that have been floating around.

1D - Desktop Variety

28 - Base Clock Speed

01A - Model & Stepping

2M - 2 Multi Core Modules (4 + 4 Core Chips Joined)???

88 - 8 Physical Cores | 8 HT Cores

E4 - Revision Number

32/28 - Base/Boost Frequency

N - Retail Ready Check / Final Validation Check ???

I found this nice page for help with decoding the OPNs: This should explain most of the numbers.

The "1" before "D" (which is for desktop) might be more related to some ES stage, I suppose. "Z" could be the final one based on that.

Logical cores/total threads are not encoded. Thanks to the new Zauba leak, we know, that this ES should have 16 threads capability.

The "N" is the only new component. It might just mean to have no gfx.

Matlab Assignment Help helped me to complete my seventh Matlab assignment, which was also the best-performed! It scored 92/100, which I've never scored before on any other assignment/exam in my lifetime. Otherwise, their service was as quick as usual. The delivery was also on time. I'm now requesting to use this same programmer multiple times. He seems the best in Image Processing tasks. Meanwhile, I'll ask for more Matlab Homework Help soon.

Besides my C course, I have a job and family, both of which compete to get my time. I couldn't find sufficient time for the challenging C assignments, and these people came in and saved my skin. I must commend them for the genius Programming Assignment Help. Their C Homework Help tutors did the best job and got me shining grades.

The ardent Programming Homework Help tutor that nailed down my project was very passionate. He answered my Python questions with long, self-explanatory solutions that make it easy for any average student to revise. Moreover, he didn't hesitate to answer other questions, too, even though they weren't part of the exam. If all Python Homework Help experts can be like this then they can trend as the best Programming school ever online

Hey STATA homework help expert, I need to know if you can conduct the Kappa measurement of agreement. This is what is in my assignment. I can only hire someone for statistics assignment help if they are aware of the kappa measurement of agreement. If you can do it, then reply to me with a few lines of what the kappa measure of agreement is. Let me know also how much you charge for statistics homework help in SAS

Hi, other than economics assignment help are there other subjects that you cover? I am having several assignments one needs an economics homework help expert and the other one needs a financial expert. If you can guarantee quality work on both then I can hire you to complete them. All I am sure of is that I can hire you for the economics one but the finance one I am not sure.

Sarah Wilson said...

I have submitted my assignment to your website without any challenges. The economics assignmenthelp expert handling my assignment has already contacted me and I am certain that my work is underway. I am just hoping that I will get quality economics homework help. I have a lot of hopes in you and I am just hoping that you will not disappoint me.

Sarah Wilson said...

As much as there are discouragements, it is true that mathematics is hard. Like in my case, I was never discouraged by anyone about math but I still find it very hard and that is why I am requesting your math assignment help. I am tired of struggling with mathematics and spending sleepless nights trying to solve sums that I still don’t get right. Having gone through your math homework help, I am sure that I will get the right help through you. Please tell me what I need to be able to hire you.

Just what I was looking for. I am struggling with my accounting assignment. I want an Accounting Assignment Help tutor to offer me two services. One is to complete my accounting assignments and the other is to provide me with online classes. I believe you are experienced enough to offer both Accounting Homework Help accounting homework help and online classes. I know you charge assignments based on the bulk. Tell me how much you charge for the online classes per hour.

Hey there, I need an statistics homework help expert to help me understand the topic of piecewise regression. In our lectures, the concept seemed very hard, and I could not understand it completely. I need someone who can explain to me in a simpler way that I can understand the topic. he/she should explain to me which is the best model, the best data before the model and how to fit the model using SPSS. If you can deliver quality work then you would be my official statistics assignment help partner.

Hanna Bell said...

I don’t have time to look for another expert and therefore I am going to hire you with the hope that I will get quality economics assignment help .Being aneconomics homework help professor I expect that your solutions are first class. All I want to tell you is that if the solutions are not up to the mark I am going to cancel the project

Hanna Bell said...

Hello. Please check the task I have just sent and reply as soon as possible. I want an adjustment assignment done within a period of one week.
