See how EPYC powered servers can deliver for your computing needs

Why is AMD EPYC a great fit in Packet’s bare metal hosting?

Flexibility. Performance. Security.

Born in the cloud, the AMD EPYC™ X86 system-on-chip delivers 33% more memory bandwidth1 and 60% more I/O2 than the competition to power data center applications. Plus you can get up to 14% more cores3 with the EPYC 7601 vs. the Intel Xeon 8180. 

No matter how you deploy, the AMD EPYC™ processor powers fast, responsive, and secure IT.

  • Up to 32 high performance cores (64 threads) 
    • Boost performance and compute density
  • Up to 2TB of 2666 MHz DDR4 memory capacity (across 8 channels) 
    • Accelerates memory-intensive application performance
  • 128 Lanes of PCIe® Gen 3 
    • Extend server capabilities without needing to add PCI switching
  • Integrated security subsystem 
    • Protects and enables secure multi-tenancy per CPU/SoC
