Meta choo짯ses EPYC꽓 CPUs for its data center 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) held the vir짯tu짯al Acce짯le짯ra짯ted Data Cen짯ter Pre짯mie짯re, laun짯ching the new AMD Instinct꽓 MI200 series acce짯le짯ra짯tors, the world셲 fas짯test acce짯le짯ra짯tor for high per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting (HPC) and arti짯fi짯ci짯al intel짯li짯gence (AI) workload짯si, and pro짯vi짯ded a pre짯view of the inno짯va짯ti짯ve 3rd Gen AMD EPYC꽓 pro짯ces짯sors with AMD 3D V멌ache. AMD also reve짯a짯led new infor짯ma짯ti짯on about its next gene짯ra짯ti짯on 쏾en 4 pro짯ces짯sor core and announ짯ced the new 쏾en 4c pro짯ces짯sor core, both of which will power future AMD ser짯ver pro짯ces짯sors and are desi짯gned to extend the company셲 lea짯der짯ship pro짯ducts for the data center.

We are in a high-per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting mega짯cy짯cle that is dri짯ving demand for more com짯pu짯te to power the ser짯vices and devices that impact every aspect of our dai짯ly lives, said Dr. Lisa Su, pre짯si짯dent and CEO, AMD. 쏻e are buil짯ding signi짯fi짯cant momen짯tum in the data cen짯ter with our lea짯der짯ship pro짯duct port짯fo짯lio, inclu짯ding Meta셲 adop짯ti짯on of AMD EPYC to power their infra짯struc짯tu짯re and the buil짯dout of Fron짯tier, the first U.S. exas짯ca짯le super짯com짯pu짯ter which will be powered by EPYC and AMD Instinct pro짯ces짯sors. In addi짯ti짯on, today we announ짯ced a breadth of new pro짯ducts that build on that momen짯tum in next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on EPYC pro짯ces짯sors with new inno짯va짯tions in design, lea짯der짯ship, 3D pack짯a짯ging tech짯no짯lo짯gy, and 5 nm high-per짯for짯mance manu짯fac짯tu짯ring to fur짯ther extend our lea짯der짯ship for cloud, enter짯pri짯se and HPC customers.

Meta Adopts EPYC CPUs [03:09 05:29]
AMD announ짯ced Meta is the latest major hypers짯ca짯le cloud com짯pa짯ny that has adopted AMD EPYC CPUs to power its data cen짯ters. AMD and Meta work짯ed tog짯e짯ther to defi짯ne an open, cloud-sca짯le, sin짯gle-socket ser짯ver desi짯gned for per짯for짯mance and power effi짯ci짯en짯cy, based on the 3rd Gen EPYC pro짯ces짯sor. Fur짯ther details will be dis짯cus짯sed at the Open Com짯pu짯te Glo짯bal Sum짯mit later this week. 

Advan짯ced Pack짯a짯ging Dri짯ving Data Cen짯ter Per짯for짯mance [05:35 18:00]
AMD pre짯view짯ed the use of inno짯va짯ti짯ve 3D chip짯let pack짯a짯ging tech짯no짯lo짯gy in the data cen짯ter with the first ser짯ver CPU using high-per짯for짯mance 3D die stack짯ing. The 3rd Gen AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors with AMD 3D V멌ache, code짯na짯med 쏮ilan멭, repres짯ents an inno짯va짯ti짯ve step for짯ward in CPU design and pack짯a짯ging, and will offer a 50% avera짯ge per짯for짯mance uplift across tar짯ge짯ted tech짯ni짯cal com짯pu짯ting workloadsii.

3rd Gen EPYC with AMD 3D V멌ache will offer the same capa짯bi짯li짯ties and fea짯tures as the 3rd Gen EPYC pro짯ces짯sors and they will be drop-in com짯pa짯ti짯ble with a BIOS upgrade, deli짯ve짯ring easy adop짯ti짯on and per짯for짯mance enhancements.
Micro짯soft Azu짯re HPC vir짯tu짯al machi짯nes fea짯turing 3rd Gen EPYC with AMD 3D V멌ache are available today in Pri짯va짯te Pre짯view, with broad roll짯out in the coming weeks. More infor짯ma짯ti짯on on per짯for짯mance and avai짯la짯bi짯li짯ty is available here.
3rd Gen EPYC CPUs with AMD 3D V멌ache will launch in Q1 2022. Part짯ners inclu짯ding Cis짯co, Dell Tech짯no짯lo짯gies, Leno짯vo, HPE and Super짯mi짯cro are plan짯ning to offer ser짯ver solu짯ti짯ons with the짯se processors.

AMD pro짯vi짯ded new details on the expan짯ded next gene짯ra짯ti짯on AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors code짯na짯med 쏥en짯oa and 쏝er짯ga짯mo.

Gen짯oa is expec짯ted to be the world셲 hig짯hest per짯for짯mance pro짯ces짯sor for gene짯ral pur짯po짯se com짯pu짯ting. It will have up to 96 high-per짯for짯mance 쏾en 4 cores pro짯du짯ced on opti짯mi짯zed 5nm tech짯no짯lo짯gy, and will sup짯port the next gene짯ra짯ti짯on of memo짯ry and I/O tech짯no짯lo짯gies with DDR5 and PCIe짰 5. 쏥en짯oa will also include sup짯port for CXL, enab짯ling signi짯fi짯cant memo짯ry expan짯si짯on capa짯bi짯li짯ties for data cen짯ter appli짯ca짯ti짯ons. 쏥en짯oa is on track for pro짯duc짯tion and launch in 2022.
쏝er짯ga짯mo is a high-core count CPU, tail짯or made for cloud nati짯ve appli짯ca짯ti짯ons, fea짯turing 128 high per짯for짯mance 쏾en 4c cores. AMD opti짯mi짯zed the new 쏾en 4c core for cloud-nati짯ve com짯pu짯ting, tuning the core design for den짯si짯ty and increased power effi짯ci짯en짯cy to enable hig짯her core count pro짯ces짯sors with breakth짯rough per짯for짯mance per-socket. 쏝er짯ga짯mo comes with all the same soft짯ware and secu짯ri짯ty fea짯tures and is socket com짯pa짯ti짯ble with 쏥en짯oa. 쏝er짯ga짯mo is on track to ship in the first half of 2023.
