    Patrick from STH has a run down of some AMD EPYC 2 Rome details for next generation AMD EPYC processors

    Seems AMD EPYC 3rd and 4th generation are already on roadmaps too!
    Some big companies are buying up AMD EPYC processors
    That means 7 companies account for 40% of all AMD EPYC servers ? :eek:

    Looks like AMD EPYC 2 (Rome) will be called 7002 series info and benchmarks below
    epyc2-7002-series-lineup-01.png

    Looks like AMD EPYC 7002 Zen2 Rome cpus would be best paired with Linux 5.2 Kernels and GCC 9 compiler - though from benchmarks AMD Ryzen 3000 series Zen2 was better with GCC 10 compiler coming soon. FYI, Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 Nginx and PHP-FPM have GCC 7, 8 and 9 compiler support and will be testing GCC 10 later as well :)

    Some big Cloud hosting providers already announced they are intending to use AMD EPYC 2 Rome 7002 series cpus i.e. Twitter and Google and even Linode, OVH. Good thing Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 and newer have been working on AMD EPYC specific optimisations similar to Intel specific optimisations when specific Intel cpu models are detected :)
