"Lazarus". I think we'll know much more about the IOV by the time the server SKUs (Naples and Snowy Owl) hit the market. There is no way to launch the server platform without having the virtualization features fully functional and documented. Starting from Carrizo AMD has put surprisingly ample amount of resources into Linux. If I would get to decide what AMD would do with Zeppelin: - Iron out all of the existing shenanigans (obviously), where possible. - Rewrite the Turbo & XFR algorithms in the SMU: Turbo & XFR are maintained during "OC-Mode" operation, Turbo & XFR CPUFID/CPUDFSId/CPUVID are made user configurable - Start porting Zeppelin on 16nm FF+. Porting the design and all of the re-tooling it involves will be extremely costly, however it would be definitely worth it if it allows hitting even 300MHz higher Fmax on average, which it most likely would. Release as a refresh e.g. 1750, 1750X, 1850X.
