I am going to leave the below if rumor holds any fact.

This is TheeMahn (Glenn Cady). Creator of Ultimate Edition Linux. I wanted to initially provide only factual points of “What is Naples” Taken from Wiki, and is wrong at least somewhat. The bullets are wrong and this I am fairly sure at least currently. Yes, I know Intel is working on getting back to AMD with the 7740 Kaby Lake-X etc on the Ryzen side, etc. you can read throughout the web. Ultimately, build a Operating System for the server market.I have in the past built O/S’s for the U.S Air force instructors, I think I have got this.

AMD has things in works for a workstation that will crush what they are currently working on (also available on the INTERNET). I am not going currently going to be a promoter of AMD or Intel. I have to give credit due to AMD they knew what was up before they started on Intel & awoke a sleeping Giant. Pure speculation would be hard pressed to provide that information as adjustments are being made as fast as I can type. A war has stemmed on both fronts.

Server, as well as HEDT (High End Desk Top). I will comment on that later as the smoke settles. I guess I did, I bought amdnaples.com. I guess all options weighed and yes I too know what Intel has coming for the server market, even if it is better wont matter people are tired of being charged outrageously. COMPETITION IS COMING. I guess I am AMD! Sorry, can not be bought anyway.

From todays WIKI:

Naples is the name of the cores for AMD’s highest-performance enterprise-level server multiprocessors based on the Zen micro-architecture. Naples processors are fabricated on Global Foundries 14 nm process.

Naples processors are set to be introduced in the 2nd quarter of 2017.

AMD Naples system on chips are a series of high-performance multiprocessors designed by AMD based on their Zen microarchitecture. Naples SoCs support both single and 2-way multiprocessing with up to a maximum of 32 cores (and 64 threads) per processor for a total of up to 64 cores (and 128 threads) for a 2-way MP system. Those SoCs sports 128 PCIe lanes each, however half of them are lost when in 2-way MP (leaving the system with the same overall lanes count as a single socket solution). Communication between the two chips is done via AMD’s Infinity Fabric protocol over the 64 PCIe reserved lanes.

All Naples processors have the following:

  • Octa-channel Memory
  • Up to DDR4-2400 ECC
  • Up to 2 TiB (4 TiB in 2MP)
  • Up to 32 cores / 64 threads

Everything up to AVX2 (i.e., SMM, FPU, NX, MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AES, AVX, FMA3, and AVX2), and SHA
