AMD’s latest upcoming standards EPYC Genoa 96 Core . CPU Based on the Zen 4 core architecture that was leaked by Yuuki_AnS. The leaked benchmarks show record-breaking x86 performance and this is coming from an engineering sample.
AMD’s EPYC Genoa 96 Core “Zen 4” CPU crushes every single x86 processor on the market
The leaked AMD EPYC Genoa 9000 chip is one of several Zen 4 server CPUs that the red team will release later this year to the server market. we It recently covered the specs for the entire range From the same source and now, Yuuki_AnS has published the first benchmarks showing the brutal performance of the engineering sample.
The OPN code for the AMD EPYC Genoa CPU and SKU naming is not mentioned but our guess is that the EPYC 9654P could be one of the same specification SKUs that includes 96 cores and 192 threads based on the Zen 4 core architecture. The chip rocks 384MB of L3 cache and has a base frequency of 2.15GHz. Boost frequencies are rated at 3.05 GHz for all cores, single core frequencies are 3.5-3.7 GHz, and a low-use operating frequency is 3.5 GHz. At full load, the chip consumes 360 watts of power which is a very reasonable number given that Intel chips have a maximum power of over 700 watts.

AMD’s EPYC Genoa 96 Core ES CPU has been tested in a dual-socket configuration with a total of 192 cores and 384 threads. However, current benchmarks don’t support more than 128 cores as mentioned by the leaker and performance was measured in a Windows Server 2025 preview so we’re looking at a not very optimized test system. It is mentioned that the performance gap between the ES part tested here and the final version will be huge so we can expect higher performance on retail chips.
AMD EPYC Genoa 96 Core & Intel Sapphire Rapids-SP CPU Benchmarks (Image credits: Yuuki_AnS):
Common performance metrics are located under different versions of CPU-z, V-Ray, and the very popular Cinebench benchmarks. On CPU-z v17, the AMD EPYC Genoa 96 Core CPU scored 740.2 in the single-threaded benchmark and 73057.5 in the multi-threaded benchmark. In the CPU-z AVX-512, the chip scored 627.2 points in the single-core and 15625.1 points in the multi-core tests. For comparison, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3995WX with 64-core Zen 2 features a multi-threaded performance of 30,917 points, which is a 2.36 times improvement in multi-threaded performance. In the results of the leaked benchmarks comparing the chip with Unreleased Sapphire Rapids-SP OffersThe CPU is lacking behind in single-threaded benchmarks but outpacing its competition in multi-threaded workloads.
On V-Ray, the chip scored 88,300 points in a multi-core benchmark test. For comparison, AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX benchmarks show a performance rating of 60,111 points for the 64 Core Zen 3 chip. That’s a 47% improvement which is massive but note that this isn’t the final variant of Genoa’s 96-core flagship. In the leaked benchmarks, the chip offers a 4.5% improvement in CPU performance over its predecessor, the EPYC 7773X which is expected due to the lower clock speeds at which the ES chip was running.
Finally, we have the Cinebench performance benchmarks tested across all three versions (R15, R20, R23). In Cinebench R15, the chip scored 188 points in the single-core and 11,577 points in the multi-core, in the Cinebench R20, the chip scored 416 points in the single-core and 26,285 points in the multi-core while in Cinebench R23, the chip scored 1227 points in the single-core and 100,776 points In multi-core tests. Here, the CPU is ruining Intel’s offerings, but note that only 128 cores are used in all three versions and at a lower clock frequency as well, which is a far cry from the final final boost of 3.05GHz.
AMD’s EPYC Genoa CPUs will feature 128 PCIe Gen 5.0 slots, and 160 for a 2P (dual-socket) configuration. The SP5 platform will also feature DDR5-5200 memory support which is some crazy improvement over existing DDR4-3200 MHz DIMMs. But that’s not all, it will also support up to 12 DDR5 memory channels and 2 DIMMs per channel which will allow up to 3TB of system memory using 128GB modules. The AMD EPYC 9000 Genoa CPU range is expected to be launched in the second half of this year.
