SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)  AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announ짯ced avai짯la짯bi짯li짯ty of the new AMD EPYC꽓 8004 Series pro짯ces짯sors, com짯ple짯ting the 4th Gen AMD EPYC CPU fami짯ly of workload-opti짯mi짯zed pro짯ces짯sors. The짯se new pro짯ces짯sors bring the 쏾en 4c core into a pur짯po짯se-built CPU, enab짯ling hard짯ware pro짯vi짯ders to crea짯te ener짯gy effi짯ci짯ent and dif짯fe짯ren짯tia짯ted plat짯forms that can power appli짯ca짯ti짯ons from the intel짯li짯gent edge, such as retail, manu짯fac짯tu짯ring and tel짯co, all the way to the data cen짯ter for cloud ser짯vices, sto짯rage and others.

The new EPYC 8004 Series pro짯ces짯sors extend AMD lea짯der짯ship in sin짯gle socket plat짯forms by offe짯ring excel짯lent CPU ener짯gy effi짯ci짯en짯cy in a packa짯ge tun짯ed to meet the needs of space and power-cons짯trai짯ned infra짯struc짯tu짯re, said Dan McNa짯ma짯ra, seni짯or vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Ser짯ver Busi짯ness, AMD. AMD has deli짯ver짯ed mul짯ti짯ple gene짯ra짯ti짯ons of data cen짯ter pro짯ces짯sors that pro짯vi짯de out짯stan짯ding effi짯ci짯en짯cy, per짯for짯mance, and inno짯va짯ti짯ve fea짯tures. Now with our 4th Gen EPYC CPU port짯fo짯lio com짯ple짯te, that lea짯der짯ship con짯ti짯nues across a broad set of workloads from enter짯pri짯se and cloud, to intel짯li짯gent edge, tech짯ni짯cal com짯pu짯ting and more.

Deli짯ve짯ring Effi짯ci짯en짯cy and Per짯for짯mance for Tra짯di짯tio짯nal Data Cen짯ters and Intel짯li짯gent Edge
AMD EPYC 8004 series pro짯ces짯sors extend the lea짯der짯ship per짯for짯mance and effi짯ci짯en짯cy of the 4th Gen EPYC fami짯ly to mar짯kets that seek strong per짯for짯mance, but also have signi짯fi짯cant requi짯re짯ments for ener짯gy effi짯ci짯en짯cy, plat짯form den짯si짯ty and quiet ope짯ra짯ti짯ons. With the AMD EPYC 8004 series pro짯ces짯sors, cus짯to짯mers and part짯ners can expect:

  • Excel짯lent Ener짯gy Effi짯ci짯en짯cy for the Intel짯li짯gent Edge. Uti짯li짯zing the effi짯ci짯ent 쏾en 4c core and new SP6 socket which brings stream짯li짯ned memo짯ry and I/O fea짯tures the EPYC 8004 series pro짯ces짯sor can pro짯vi짯de up to 2x bet짯ter SPEC짯power짰 per짯for짯mance per sys짯tem watt advan짯ta짯ge com짯pared to the competition셲 top net짯wor짯king modeli.
  • Balan짯ced Per짯for짯mance. In an indus짯try that demands the ulti짯ma짯te per짯for짯mance per watt capa짯bi짯li짯ties for space and infra짯struc짯tu짯re cons짯trai짯ned envi짯ron짯ments, the AMD EPYC 8004 series pro짯ces짯sors deli짯ver the balan짯ced per짯for짯mance and excel짯lent ener짯gy effi짯ci짯en짯cy nee짯ded at the edge. In a video enco짯ding workload, the EPYC 8534P pro짯vi짯des up to 2.4x the aggre짯ga짯te frames/hour/system watt against the competition셲 com짯pa짯ra짯ble net짯wor짯king pro짯ductii. In an IoT Edge gate짯way workload an eight core EPYC 8024P powered ser짯ver can pro짯vi짯de ~1.8x the total through짯put per짯for짯mance per 8kW rack, com짯pared to the competition셲 eight core pro짯ces짯sor.iii
  • Opti짯mi짯zing Savings for Intel짯li짯gent Edge Deploy짯ments. Intel짯li짯gent edge deploy짯ments focus on smal짯ler nodes of ser짯vers, rather than full racks as expec짯ted within a data cen짯ter. In an intel짯li짯gent edge deploy짯ment of one, three or 10 ser짯vers, ener짯gy effi짯ci짯en짯cy of an AMD EPYC 8004 series pro짯ces짯sor-based ser짯ver, com짯pared to the com짯pe짯ti짯ti짯on, can poten짯ti짯al짯ly save cus짯to짯mers thou짯sands of dol짯lars in ener짯gy cos짯ts over a five year peri짯od, with bet짯ter core den짯si짯ty and more through짯put.iv

A Robust and Inno짯va짯ti짯ve Ecosystem
Addi짯tio짯nal짯ly, num짯e짯rous OEMs and part짯ners unvei짯led a num짯ber of uni짯que sys짯tems and solu짯ti짯ons that take full advan짯ta짯ge of the AMD EPYC 8004 series pro짯ces짯sor capa짯bi짯li짯ties to work in a broad ope짯ra짯ting ran짯ge for power and tem짯pe짯ra짯tu짯re needs, sup짯port짯ing deploy짯ments in den짯se data cen짯ters, to city tel짯co buil짯dings, to extre짯me phy짯si짯cal envi짯ron짯ments like fac짯to짯ry floors.

Dell Tech짯no짯lo짯gies released the Dell PowerEdge C6615 ser짯ver. This system셲 effi짯ci짯ent form-fac짯tor opti짯mi짯zes high per짯for짯mance with low TCO for sca짯le out workloads, like con짯tai짯ners and microservices.

The Dell PowerEdge C6615 with AMD EPYC Gen4 CPUs is pur짯po짯se-built to deli짯ver our best per짯for짯mance per watt, per dol짯lar in a den짯si짯ty-opti짯mi짯zed form fac짯tor, said Tra짯vis Vigil, seni짯or vice pre짯si짯dent, pro짯duct manage짯ment, Infra짯struc짯tu짯re Solu짯ti짯ons Group, Dell Tech짯no짯lo짯gies. 쏷he solu짯ti짯on is engi짯nee짯red to maxi짯mi짯ze com짯pu짯te per짯for짯mance in air-coo짯led envi짯ron짯ments wit짯hout having to alter power or coo짯ling capa짯bi짯li짯ties. When com짯bi짯ned with Dell Open짯Ma짯na짯ge Enter짯pri짯se soft짯ware, we enable cloud ser짯vice pro짯vi짯ders to intel짯li짯gent짯ly moni짯tor their sys짯tems and deli짯ver more effi짯ci짯ent com짯pu짯te services.

With the AMD EPYC 8004 series pro짯ces짯sors, Erics짯son sees a Cloud RAN com짯pu짯ta짯ti짯on acce짯le짯ra짯ti짯on solu짯ti짯on that can suc짯cessful짯ly mana짯ge the immense traf짯fic growth and levera짯ge mobi짯le net짯works in an ener짯gy effi짯ci짯ent and per짯for짯mant man짯ner. The core den짯si짯ty and AVX512 capa짯bi짯li짯ties of the pro짯ces짯sors also enable the capa짯ci짯ty to hand짯le the traf짯fic pro짯files of a hea짯vy loa짯ded site with both FDD and TDD spectrum.
