AMD is killing it with their new Zen CPU cores, with Ryzen already a success and Ryzen ThreadRipper going for Intel's throat - but what about the server market? This is where Epyc comes into play, with the upcoming Epyc 7000 series from AMD. VideoCardz picked up the news, with some details on the Epyc 7000 series:

  • up to 32 High-Performance "Zen" Cores
  • 8 DDR4 Channels per CPU
  • Up to 2TB Memory per CPU
  • 128 PCIe Lanes
  • Dedicated Security Subsystem
  • Integrated Chipset
  • Socket-Compatible with Next Gen EPYC Processors

No compromise 1-Socket

  • Right-size underutilized servers
  • Optimize storage and heterogeneous compute
  • Low power consumption
  • Up to 20% lower cap-ex

AMD Epyc 7000 Series: EPIC PERFORMANCE

There's some huge performance increases over Intel's Xeon E5-2699A v4 processor, which is a 22C/44T @ 3.6GHz CPU, with 55MB of cache, and a price of $4000+. We have 47% more performance over the single socket CPU, but given there are 18 more CPU threads (albeit at 400MHz slower clocks), AMD is going to send some massive shocks throughout the server market with Epyc.
