‚ÄĒAMD EPYC‚ĄĘ pro¬≠ces¬≠sors are sup¬≠port¬≠ed by a com¬≠ple¬≠te cloud, enter¬≠pri¬≠se, hard¬≠ware and soft¬≠ware ecosystem‚ÄĒ

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) ‚ÄĒ Today, at the ‚Äútog¬≠e¬≠ther we advance_data cen¬≠ters‚ÄĚ event, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announ¬≠ced the gene¬≠ral avai¬≠la¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty of the 4th Gen AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ pro¬≠ces¬≠sors; with unmat¬≠ched per¬≠for¬≠mance for cri¬≠ti¬≠cal workloads across cloudi, enter¬≠pri¬≠seii and high per¬≠for¬≠mance com¬≠pu¬≠tingiii.

The 4th Gen AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors bring next-gene¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re, tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy, and fea¬≠tures to the modern data cen¬≠ter. Built on the ‚ÄúZen 4‚ÄĚ core, the hig¬≠hest per¬≠for¬≠mance core ever from AMDiv, the pro¬≠ces¬≠sors deli¬≠ver lea¬≠der¬≠ship per¬≠for¬≠mance, ener¬≠gy effi¬≠ci¬≠en¬≠cyv and help cus¬≠to¬≠mers acce¬≠le¬≠ra¬≠te data cen¬≠ter moder¬≠niza¬≠ti¬≠on for grea¬≠ter appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠on through¬≠put and more actionable insights.

‚ÄúChoo¬≠sing the right data cen¬≠ter pro¬≠ces¬≠sor is more important than ever, and 4th Gen EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors deli¬≠ver lea¬≠der¬≠ship in every dimen¬≠si¬≠on,‚ÄĚ said Dr. Lisa Su, Chair and CEO, AMD. ‚ÄúThe data cen¬≠ter repres¬≠ents the lar¬≠gest growth oppor¬≠tu¬≠ni¬≠ty and most stra¬≠te¬≠gic prio¬≠ri¬≠ty for AMD, and we are com¬≠mit¬≠ted to making AMD the part¬≠ner of choice by offe¬≠ring the industry‚Äôs broa¬≠dest port¬≠fo¬≠lio of high-per¬≠for¬≠mance and adap¬≠ti¬≠ve com¬≠pu¬≠ting engi¬≠nes. We have built the best data cen¬≠ter CPU road¬≠map in the indus¬≠try, and with 4th Gen EPYC we deli¬≠ver ano¬≠ther major step for¬≠ward in per¬≠for¬≠mance and effi¬≠ci¬≠en¬≠cy to make the best ser¬≠ver pro¬≠ces¬≠sor road¬≠map even bet¬≠ter. With a signi¬≠fi¬≠cant¬≠ly expan¬≠ded set of solu¬≠ti¬≠ons on-track to launch from our eco¬≠sys¬≠tem of part¬≠ners, cus¬≠to¬≠mers sel¬≠ec¬≠ting 4th Gen EPYC to power their data cen¬≠ters can impro¬≠ve per¬≠for¬≠mance, con¬≠so¬≠li¬≠da¬≠te their infra¬≠struc¬≠tu¬≠re, and lower ener¬≠gy costs.‚ÄĚ

Acce­le­ra­ting Results and Dri­ving Actionable Insights for Businesses

4th Gen AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors are desi¬≠gned to deli¬≠ver opti¬≠miza¬≠ti¬≠ons across mar¬≠ket seg¬≠ments and appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons, while hel¬≠ping busi¬≠nesses free data cen¬≠ter resour¬≠ces to crea¬≠te addi¬≠tio¬≠nal workload pro¬≠ces¬≠sing and acce¬≠le¬≠ra¬≠te output.
With 4th Gen AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors, busi¬≠nesses can:

  • Sup¬≠port Per¬≠for¬≠mance and Effi¬≠ci¬≠en¬≠cy. With up to 96 cores in a sin¬≠gle pro¬≠ces¬≠sor, the new AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors can enable cus¬≠to¬≠mers to deploy fewer and more powerful ser¬≠vers to con¬≠ti¬≠nue to meet their com¬≠pu¬≠te needs. This allows them to dri¬≠ve grea¬≠ter fle¬≠xi¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty within the data cen¬≠ter that can be lever¬≠a¬≠ged to address busi¬≠ness sus¬≠taina¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty goals and dri¬≠ve real-world dividends.
  • Help Keep Data Secu¬≠re. Through a ‚ÄúSecu¬≠ri¬≠ty by Design‚ÄĚ approach, AMD con¬≠ti¬≠nues to deli¬≠ver enhan¬≠ced secu¬≠ri¬≠ty fea¬≠tures in x86 CPUs. The 4th Gen AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sor series expands on AMD Infi¬≠ni¬≠ty Guardvi, a cut¬≠ting-edge set of fea¬≠tures that offers phy¬≠si¬≠cal and vir¬≠tu¬≠al lay¬≠ers of pro¬≠tec¬≠tion. With 2X the num¬≠ber of encryp¬≠ti¬≠on keys com¬≠pared to pre¬≠vious gene¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠ons, 4th Gen EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors help cus¬≠to¬≠mers keep data secu¬≠re, whe¬≠ther it is stored local¬≠ly, in the cloud, or resi¬≠ding in storage.
  • Use the Latest Indus¬≠try Fea¬≠tures and Archi¬≠tec¬≠tures. The¬≠se pro¬≠ces¬≠sors con¬≠ti¬≠nue to pro¬≠vi¬≠de cus¬≠to¬≠mers with an ‚Äúall-in‚ÄĚ fea¬≠ture set, with cus¬≠to¬≠mers just nee¬≠ding to pick the core count and fre¬≠quen¬≠cy that matches their workload needs. The 4th Gen AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sor intro¬≠du¬≠ces sup¬≠port for DDR5 memo¬≠ry and PCIe¬ģ Gen 5, which are cri¬≠ti¬≠cal for AI and ML appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons. In addi¬≠ti¬≠on, 4th Gen AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors sup¬≠port CXL¬ģ 1.1+ for memo¬≠ry expan¬≠si¬≠on, hel¬≠ping cus¬≠to¬≠mers to meet demands for lar¬≠ger in-memo¬≠ry workload capacity.

All of the¬≠se fea¬≠tures and capa¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ties ulti¬≠m¬≠ate¬≠ly enable cus¬≠to¬≠mers to use the 4th Gen EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors to dri¬≠ve infra¬≠struc¬≠tu¬≠re con¬≠so¬≠li¬≠da¬≠ti¬≠on with simi¬≠lar or bet¬≠ter per¬≠for¬≠mance; ther¬≠eby hel¬≠ping redu¬≠ce the cos¬≠ts and ener¬≠gy con¬≠sump¬≠ti¬≠on of their data cen¬≠tervii.
