AMD Launches 2nd Generation Epyc Server Chips

AMD, together with an expansive ecosystem of data center partners and customers, introduced yesterday the 2nd Generation AMD EPYC family of processors that deliver performance leadership across a broad number of enterprise, cloud and high-performance computing (HPC) workloads.

With unmatched PCI Express 4.0 connectivity, the AMD EPYC™ 7002 processor platform is also ideal for advanced server based storage solutions.

Furthermore, these new Supermicro A+ Servers offer increased data center agility and responsiveness with a comprehensive and balanced feature set of I/O, memory, and security capabilities. "Using the AMD EPYC 7702 processor, we can scale out our compute clusters with more cores in less space using less power, which translates to 25% lower [total cost of ownership] for Twitter", said its senior director of engineering, Jennifer Fraser.

AMD added that it has tightened up security that has been requested by its customers by equipping "2nd Gen EPYC processor" with a separate security chip that automatically encrypts data.

AMD compared its 2nd Gen processor to Intel's processor at this event.

Google has used other AMD chips before, including in its "Millionth Server", built in 2008, and says it is now the first company to use second-generation EPYC chips in its datacenters.

"We are extremely proud to continue our relationship with HPE, a foundational partner for AMD EPYC, with their latest platforms". HPE will expand its AMD EPYC portfolio with the latest AMD processors across additional servers and systems.

"We are just getting started in the server market", Su said, as also noted by Bloomberg.

In fact, Jefferies's Mark Lipacis on Wednesday confirmed this assumption, anticipating in a note to investors a favorable server CPU upcycle ahead for AMD. "With the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors connected via our new Slingshot system interconnect, we're able to deliver the performance our customers require for the exascale era". This is the first high-performance data center, HPC, and AI-centric chips based on TSMC's cutting-edge 7nm process node. The newest AMD EPYC™ processors will help data centres adapt and deal with demanding workloads, while offering embedded security features to help defend against attacks to the CPU, applications and data. It also delivers more security capabilities.

And Lenovo, Dell, and VMware said they'd crank out products with the Epyc chips put to use; basically, AMD is going for an Epyc win with the new chips. "As global server authority Serve The Home explains, they are simply ".the densest possible air-cooled AMD EPYC platforms on the market.

Intel is still the biggest datacenter processor maker by far, however, and also counts Google and Twitter among its customers.

Currently, Intel is the largest data center processor manufacturer and a major competitor for AMD. GIGABYTE's new systems will provide customers with incredible compute, I/O and bandwidth capability - created to meet the huge demand for more compute in big data analytics, HPC and cloud computing. AMD EPYC 7002 Series Processors are expected to deliver up to twice the performance-per socket 1 and up to four times peak FLOPS per-socket 2 over AMD EPYC 7001 Series Processors.

Eclipsing previous virtualization performance records by as much as 321 percent and power efficiency records by 28 percent, the new HPE ProLiant DL325 and HPE ProLiant DL385 servers deliver results that redefine value and economics across virtualization, cloud, enterprise infrastructure and data-intensive workloads.
