Leaked Patch Confirms AMD Zen Will Have 32 Cores Per Socket?

The crew at TechFrag have been digging around in what is believed to be a leaked Linux patch and have come to the conclusion that AMD Zen based processors will feature up to 32 physical cores.

A leaked Linux patch on LKML.org, first spotted by The New Citavia Blog, suggests that AMD Zen based processors will feature up to 32 physical cores. The patch also hints at the similarity of parts of the "Zen" and "Zeppelin" codenames. The Zeppelin codename was first mentioned back in August last year, and parts of the patch identify it as a "family 17h model 00h" CPU.
