GIGABYTE Unveils AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Server Family

Tai­pei, Tai­wan, 8th August 2019 – GIGABYTE, a key part­ner in brin­ging the AMD EPYC™ pro­ces­sor to the mar­ket and a sys­tems buil­der with one of the most com­ple­te AMD EPYC™ pro­ces­sor plat­form lin­eups, is proud to announ­ce the first wave release of our pro­duc­ts based on the new AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Pro­ces­sor. GIGABYTE’s new sys­tems will pro­vi­de custo­mers with incredi­ble com­pu­te, I/O and band­width capa­bi­li­ty – desi­gned to meet the huge demand for more com­pu­te in big data ana­ly­tics, HPC and cloud com­pu­ting.

GIGABYTE & AMD: Gre­at Part­ners For EPYC

Being on the fore­front of inno­va­ti­on, GIGABYTE saw the poten­ti­al of the 1st Gen AMD EPYC™ Pro­ces­sor befo­re it first came to the mar­ket in 2017, and com­mit­ted to deve­lo­ping a full line-up of ser­ver sys­tems based on the 1st Gen EPYC™. In the resul­ting past two years, GIGABYTE has released a total of 18 gene­ral avai­la­bi­li­ty 1st Gen EPYC™ ser­ver sys­tems and mother­boards, and tog­e­ther with our chan­nel part­ners have deli­ve­r­ed major deploy­ments of the­se sys­tems to cloud, web and HPC custo­mers, hel­ping them to rea­li­ze the immense value offe­ring and per­for­mance bene­fits of AMD EPYC™ in their data cen­ters.

GIGABYTE has now built on our exten­si­ve expe­ri­ence and exper­ti­se with the 1st Gen EPYC™ and is rea­dy to deli­ver the next genera­ti­on of AMD EPYC™ to our custo­mers, with a total of 28 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ Pro­ces­sor sys­tems plan­ned for gene­ral avai­la­bi­li­ty release by the end of 2019 –- almost dou­ble the num­ber plat­forms GIGABYTE has released for the first genera­ti­on.

Intro­du­cing the AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Pro­ces­sor

The new AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Pro­ces­sors are the world’s first 7nm x86 data cen­ter CPUs and will power the world’s most deman­ding workloads with bre­akth­rough CPU per­for­mance. Deli­vering a com­pre­hen­si­ve, con­sis­tent fea­ture set of I/O, memo­ry and secu­ri­ty fea­tures, across 8 to 64 “Zen 2” cores, the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ Pro­ces­sors deli­ver agi­li­ty from a balan­ced set of fea­tures. The 2nd Gen EPYC™ is also the first PCIe® 4.0 rea­dy x86 ser­ver CPU, pro­vi­ding an I/O band­width twice of PCIe® Gen 3.0, and allo­wing you to inte­gra­te the next genera­ti­on of devices such as high speed net­wor­king cards, ultra-fast SSD dri­ves or other PCIe® Gen 4.0 capa­ble devices. The 2nd Gen EPYC™ also fea­tures fas­ter DDR4 chan­nels allo­wing memo­ry modu­les of up to 3200 MHz to be used. AMD EPYC™ 7002 Genera­ti­on Pro­ces­sors are expec­ted to deli­ver up to twice the per­for­mance-per socket1 and up to four times peak FLOPS per-socket2over AMD EPYC™ 7001 Series Pro­ces­sors.

GIGABYTE’s AMD EPYC™ H‑Series 2U 4 Node Ser­ver Sys­tems have gai­ned widespread prai­se and custo­mer appro­val world­wi­de, and are the sys­tems of choice for several glo­bal HPC sys­tem pro­vi­ders. Why? As ser­ver aut­ho­ri­ty Ser­ve The Home exp­lains, they are sim­ply “…the den­sest pos­si­ble air-coo­led AMD EPYC plat­forms on the mar­ket. Using the 2U4N chas­sis with 8 x EPYC Rome CPUs and lea­ving some room for addi­tio­nal net­wor­king… one will be able to fit up to 10,240 cores and 20,480 threads in 40U of rack space…”3

But the popu­la­ri­ty of our H‑Series ser­vers stems not only from pro­vi­ding an extre­me­ly den­se com­pu­te con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on in a com­pact foot­print, but also hel­ping to great­ly redu­ce TCO – for examp­le, the chas­sis fea­tures sha­red coo­ling fans and power sup­plies to help redu­ce ener­gy con­sump­ti­on and redu­ce main­ten­an­ce bur­den, and inclu­des fea­tures such as a CMC modu­le to sim­pli­fy manage­ment and redu­ce cab­ling for manage­ment of all four nodes. The advan­ta­ges are clear — GIGABYTE’s H‑Series sys­tems “…deli­ver vir­tual­ly iden­ti­cal per­for­mance to four 1U ser­vers while redu­cing rack space by 50%, power con­sump­ti­on by 4%, the num­ber of power sup­plies by 75%, and the num­ber of base power/ 1GbE/ manage­ment cables by 56% (7 v. 16.)”3

Easy & Power­ful Manage­ment Tools

All GIGABYTE ser­vers powe­red by AMD EPYC™ fea­ture an AMI Mega­RAC SP‑X web-brow­ser based plat­form for BMC ser­ver manage­ment, with a fea­ture rich and easy to use gra­phi­cal user inter­face. GIGABYTE’s BMC manage­ment solu­ti­on is also nota­ble in pro­vi­ding HTML5-based iKVM remo­te manage­ment cli­ent as a stan­dard fea­ture, with no addi­tio­nal add-on licen­se requi­red to purcha­se. Also avail­ab­le as a free down­load is GSM (GIGABYTE Ser­ver Manage­ment), GIGABYTE’s mul­ti­ple ser­ver remo­te manage­ment soft­ware plat­form, com­pa­ti­ble with eit­her IPMI or Red­fish con­nec­tion inter­faces. GSM inclu­des both a desk­top and mobi­le APP, as well as a plugin for VMware’s vCen­ter.

Con­clu­si­on

GIGABYTE and AMD have had a gre­at part­nership, but it’s now going to get even bet­ter. Working clo­se­ly tog­e­ther, we are now able to bring the dis­rup­ti­ve tech­no­lo­gy of the AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Pro­ces­sors to the mar­ket, in a ran­ge of sys­tems that com­bi­ne excel­lent per­for­mance, con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on fle­xi­bi­li­ty, and value.
