AMD EPYC Processors Deliver Competitive Computing Edge to Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Racing Team

AMD EPYC꽓 processors push boundaries in aerodynamic testing, cutting CFD workload time in half by delivering 20 percent improvement for eight-time Constructors Champions

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)  AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) and the Mer짯ce짯des-AMG Petro짯nas For짯mu짯la One (F1) Team today show짯ca짯sed how AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors impro짯ved aero짯dy짯na짯mics test짯ing capa짯ci짯ty, con짯tri짯bu짯ting to the Mer짯ce짯des-AMG Petro짯nas team win짯ning its eighth Con짯s짯truc짯tors Cham짯pi짯on짯ship in the 2021 racing sea짯son. By using AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors, the team was able to achie짯ve a 20 per짯cent per짯for짯mance impro짯ve짯ment for com짯pu짯ta짯tio짯nal flu짯id dyna짯mics (CFD) workloads that were used to model and test aero짯dy짯na짯mic flow of their F1 car.

We are proud to part짯ner with the reig짯ning Con짯s짯truc짯tors Cham짯pi짯ons, the Mer짯ce짯des-AMG Petro짯nas For짯mu짯la One Team, ope짯ra짯ting at the cut짯ting edge of racing and tech짯no짯lo짯gy, said, Dan McNa짯ma짯ra, seni짯or vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Ser짯ver Busi짯ness Unit, AMD. 쏤or F1 teams, having the most effec짯ti짯ve com짯pu짯ta짯tio짯nal ana짯ly짯sis of aero짯dy짯na짯mics can mean the dif짯fe짯rence bet짯ween win짯ning and losing a race. With AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors, the Mer짯ce짯des-AMG F1 team can ite짯ra짯te on vehic짯le design fas짯ter and more effi짯ci짯ent짯ly than their pre짯vious system.

By using AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors, the Mer짯ce짯des-AMG Petro짯nas F1 team is pushing the boun짯da짯ries of what is pos짯si짯ble with CFD by deve짯lo짯ping ground짯brea짯king aero짯dy짯na짯mics while deli짯ve짯ring the pri짯ce-per짯for짯mance requi짯red to meet bud짯get regu짯la짯ti짯ons put in place by the F챕d챕짯ra짯ti짯on Inter짯na짯tio짯na짯le de l섲u짯to짯mo짯bi짯le (FIA). Aero짯dy짯na짯mics are some of the most com짯plex, tech짯ni짯cal workloads among F1 teams and requi짯re advan짯ced pro짯ces짯sors and ser짯vers to run the ana짯ly짯ses and bench짯marks. Fur짯ther짯mo짯re, the FIA has deve짯lo짯ped an intri짯ca짯te frame짯work dic짯ta짯ting how much CFD per짯for짯mance and wind tun짯nel time F1 teams are allo짯wed to use, in an effort to avo짯id giving an unfair com짯pe짯ti짯ti짯ve advan짯ta짯ge to the teams with more resources.

AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors offer us a plat짯form that deli짯vers aero짯dy짯na짯mic per짯for짯mance day after day at the hig짯hest pos짯si짯ble level while mee짯ting our goal of fas짯ter tur짯n짯around time for design ite짯ra짯ti짯on, said Simon Wil짯liams, Head of Aero Deve짯lo짯p짯ment Soft짯ware at Mer짯ce짯des-AMG Petro짯nas F1. 쏧ncre짯di짯bly, we gai짯ned a 20 per짯cent per짯for짯mance impro짯ve짯ment over our pre짯vious sys짯tem which has cut our CFD workload time in half. This is a big step com짯pared to the past one or two per짯cent gains seen with pre짯vious systems.

AMD and Mer짯ce짯des-AMG Petro짯nas For짯mu짯la One Team first announ짯ced a mul짯ti-year part짯ner짯ship in 2020, com짯bi짯ning the two com짯pa짯nies pas짯si짯on for extre짯me per짯for짯mance. To learn more about the work AMD and Mer짯ce짯des-AMG Petro짯nas For짯mu짯la One Team have done, visit this link.
