Experience EPYC™ Performance on Your Most Demanding Workloads

EPYC™ delivers a balanced architecture with unmatched compute, memory, I/O and security capabilities designed to accelerate your mission critical applications

POWER

Industry-leading PERFORMANCE with up to 32 high-performance CPU cores, 8 memory channels and 128 lanes of PCIe® Gen 3 per SoC.1

OPTIMIZE

BEST BALANCE OF RESOURCES DRIVES RIGHT SIZED COMPUTE FOR ALL WORKLOADS

No Compromise 1-Socket

RIGHT-SIZE YOUR SERVER

Many IT organizations purchase 2-socket servers and only populate 1-socket. Others purchase 2-socket servers, not because they need the compute capability, but because they need more I/O and/or memory capacity than what is available on current single-socket servers. AMD EPYC enables no-compromise 1-socket servers with up to 32 cores, 8 memory channels and 128 PCIe® 3.0 lanes enabling capabilities and performance previously available only in 2-socket architectures.

EPYC HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING

EPYC strikes the perfect balance of cores/threads, memory, I/O bandwidth and security to deliver excellent performance for many High Performance Computing (HPC) workloads. AMD’s state-of-the-art GPUs combined with EPYC provide excellent solutions for your most demanding HPC applications.

Cloud Icon

EPYC VIRTUALIZATION AND CLOUD

With its industry-leading core count, EPYC can enable more VMs and more robustly configured VMs per server than previously possible. Whether you are deploying a single server, implementing a private cloud or enabling a hybrid cloud, EPYC provides the perfect balance of compute, memory, I/O and security for your virtualized environment.

Server Storage Icon

EPYC STORAGE

EPYC natively supports up to 32 NVMe or SATA devices in both 1 socket and 2 socket designs, enabling streamlined Software Defined and Direct Attached Storage solutions.

Technology Brain Icon

EPYC MACHINE LEARNING

Machine Learning (ML) can provide real-time decision making, critical to business operations. EPYC provides a solid foundation for ML applications such as proactive maintenance, fraud detection, network security monitoring, real-time trading and self-driving vehicles. Whether you need an innovative one socket GPU-accelerated ML training solution or a 2 socket ML inference solution – EPYC delivers outstanding machine learning solutions.

Network Circle Icon

EPYC DATA MANAGEMENT AND ANALYTICS

Today’s businesses rely on data generated from financial transactions, customer interactions and Internet-of-Things devices to help provide insights critical to decision making. EPYC can help accelerate leading Big Data and In-Memory Database applications, that require large memory sizes, high memory bandwidth and high-bandwidth I/O, to manage and analyze massive amounts of unstructured data.

Virtual Desktop Icon

EPYC VIRTUAL DESKTOP INFRASTRUCTURE

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is bringing an even richer user experience to a mobile and distributed workforce. VDI enhances centralized control and protection over business-critical data while supporting collaboration. A better user experience is tied directly to server capability. Industry-leading core count coupled with the highest memory capacity and bandwidth enables optimal virtual desktop density and performance.1 Additionally AMD graphic processors support SR-IOV for superior performance.

SECURE

INDUSTRY’S FIRST EMBEDDED x86 SILICON-LEVEL DATA SECURITY

An EPYC LEAP FORWARD in SECURITY

A dedicated security processor in the EPYC SoC minimizes potential attack surfaces and protects your software and data as it is booted, as it runs, and as it moves from server to server.*

  • AMD Secure Root-of-Trust Technology: executes only the software you intend to run
  • AMD Secure Run Technology: encrypts data in main memory and provides cryptographic isolation from other virtual machines, tenants, and even the hypervisor itself
  • AMD Secure Move Technology: allows you to securely migrate VM’s
Footnotes

1. Most cores: the AMD EPYC™ processor includes up to 32 CPU cores versus the Xeon E5-2699A v4 processor with 22 CPU cores. More memory capacity: the AMD EPYC processor offers up to 128 GB LRDIMMs in a 2-DIMM-per-channel configuration, so up to 256 GB/channel x 8 channels = 2.048 TB/processor, versus the Intel Xeon E5-2699A v4 processor with 128 GB LRDIMM in a 3-DIMM-per-channel configuration, so up to 384 GB/channel x 4 channels = 1.54 TB/processor.

Memory bandwidth: the AMD EPYC processor supports up to 21.3 GB/s per channel with DDR4-2667 x 8 channels (total 170.7 GB/s), versus the Intel Xeon E5-2699A v4 processor with 19.2 GB/s with maximum DDR4-2400 x 4 channels (total 76.8 GB/s).

Greater I/O Density: AMD EPYC processor offers up to 128 PCI Express high-speed I/O lanes per socket, versus the Intel Xeon E5-2699A v4 processor with 40 lanes per socket.
