Broadcom Announces Industry-First Portfolio of PCIe 4.0 Ethernet Adapters and Fibre Channel HBAs Supporting AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Processor

Com­pa­ny Brings the World’s Fas­test and Most-Secu­re Ether­net Net­wor­king and Fib­re Chan­nel to AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Pro­ces­sor-Based Sys­tems

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Broad­com Inc. (NASDAQ: AVGO) today announ­ced that NetX­tre­me® E‑Series Ether­net adap­ters and Emulex® LPe35000-series HBAs now deli­ver the fas­test net­wor­king per­for­mance with the AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Pro­ces­sor-based sys­tems- the world’s first x86 data cen­ter CPU, sup­por­ting PCIe 4.0®. The 200GbE NetX­tre­me E‑series and Gen 7 32GFC LPe35000-series are the world’s first port­fo­lio of Ether­net adap­ters and Fib­re Chan­nel HBAs with sup­port for PCIe 4.0.

PCIe 4.0 will dou­ble the band­width per lane to pro­vi­de signi­fi­cant I/O per­for­mance bene­fits for sto­rage and Ether­net net­wor­king, NVMe deploy­ments and AI app­li­ca­ti­ons. AMD and Broad­com have worked clo­se­ly to bring solu­ti­ons to mar­ket that fea­ture embed­ded secu­ri­ty and sili­con root of trust on Thor™ 200G Ether­net con­trol­lers and XE601™ Fib­re Chan­nel con­trol­lers to make the­se the most secu­re solu­ti­ons in the indus­try.

Thor and AMD EPYC 7002 Series Pro­ces­sors pro­vi­de the best per­forming and most secu­re Ether­net con­nec­tivi­ty and com­pu­te plat­form in the indus­try,” said Ed Red­mond, seni­or vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger, Com­pu­te and Con­nec­tivi­ty Divi­si­on, Broad­com. “Thor, with 200GbE band­width and sili­con root of trust, run­ning on AMD PCIe 4.0 plat­forms, enab­le the indus­try to achie­ve grea­ter levels of per­for­mance and secu­ri­ty for hypers­ca­le and enter­pri­se data cen­ters.”

The Emulex® LPe35000 HBA with PCIe 4.0 and NVMe over Fib­re Chan­nel dou­bles mis­si­on-cri­ti­cal workload band­width, while cut­ting host CPU uti­li­za­ti­on in half,” said Jeff Hoo­gen­boom, gene­ral mana­ger, Emulex Con­nec­tivi­ty Divi­si­on, Broad­com. “We are exci­ted to work with AMD and our OEM custo­mers to deli­ver the fas­test, most secu­re Fib­re Chan­nel HBAs for enter­pri­se workloads.”

Dri­ven by AMD’s histo­ry of dat­a­cen­ter inno­va­ti­on, inclu­ding 7nm pro­cess tech­no­lo­gy, embed­ded secu­ri­ty fea­tures and the world’s first x86 sup­plier to sup­port PCIe 4.0, the AMD EPYC 7002 Series Pro­ces­sors set a new stan­dard for the modern dat­a­cen­ter,” said Scott Aylor, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger, Dat­a­cen­ter Solu­ti­ons Group, AMD. “Tog­e­ther, the­se inno­va­tions tru­ly deli­ver the bre­akth­rough per­for­mance custo­mers demand.”

Broad­com is now sam­pling Thor-based dual-port 100GbE and sin­gle-port 100GbE OCP 3.0, OCP 2.0, and PCIe NIC adap­ters to qua­li­fied custo­mers. Plea­se con­tact your local Broad­com sales rep­re­sen­ta­ti­ve for sam­ples and pri­cing.

Broad­com is now ship­ping sin­gle, dual and quad-port Emulex Gen 7 LPe35000-series HBAs through its OEM part­ners. The Dell-bran­ded dual-port Gen 7 LPe35002 is avail­ab­le from Dell. The Leno­vo-bran­ded sin­gle and dual port Gen 7 LPe35000-series HBAs are avail­ab­le from Leno­vo.
