AMD sets new standard with high performance server processor

HardwareIntelligent TechnologyTop Stories

AMD has announced the new AMD EPYC 7003 series CPUs, which includes the AMD EPYC 7763, one of the world’s highest-performing server processor. The new EPYC 7003 series processors help HPC, cloud and enterprise customers do more, faster, by delivering outstanding server CPU performance with up to 19% more instructions per clock.

 “With the launch of our 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors, we are incredibly excited to deliver the fastest server CPU in the world. These processors extend our data centre leadership and help customers solve today’s most complex IT challenges, while substantially growing our ecosystem,” said Forrest Norrod, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Data Centre and Embedded Solutions Business Group.

Available immediately, AMD EPYC 7003 Series Processors have up to 64 “Zen 3” cores per processor and introduce new levels of per-core cache memory, while continuing to offer the PCIe 4 connectivity and class-leading memory bandwidth that defined the EPYC 7002 series CPUs. 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors also include modern security features through AMD Infinity Guard, supporting a new feature called Secure Encrypted Virtualisation-Secure Nested Paging (SEV-SNP). SEV-SNP expands the existing SEV features on EPYC processors, adding strong memory integrity protection capabilities to help prevent malicious hypervisor-based attacks by creating an isolated execution environment.

All these features and capabilities combine to help drive faster time to results and improve business outcomes for HPC, cloud and enterprise customers.

  • For HPC customers that demand the most throughput computing capabilities to do more simulations in a given time period, or use bigger data sets or more complex models, AMD EPYC 7003 Series processors enable faster time to discovery with more I/O and memory throughput, and powerful “Zen 3” cores that deliver up to twice the performance for HPC workloads compared to the competition
  • For cloud providers who need compute density and security capabilities, AMD EPYC 7003 Series processors offer the highest core density, advanced security features and up to twice the integer performance compared to the competition
  • For the enterprise, where performance and time to value are critical to support the new “work from anywhere” environment, AMD EPYC 7003 Series processors help improve efficiency, and deliver value and performance. The new processors increase transactional database processing by up to 19%, improve Hadoop Big Data analytic sorts by up to 60% with 61% better price to performance than the competition, and offer superior performance for flexible Hyperconverged Infrastructure – all of which help CIOs turn data into actionable insights faster
