Power, Optimize, Secure
EPYC™ meets the needs for today’s datacenter workloads
Flexibility. Performance. Security. Born in the cloud, the AMD EPYC system on chip delivers 33 percent more memory bandwidth1, 2.6x the I/O2 and 160 percent more memory capacity than the competitor3 to power data center applications. Whether you deploy bare metal, virtualized, or in the cloud, AMD EPYC processors power a fast, responsive, and a more secure IT4.
Per CPU –
|Up to 32 high performance cores (64 threads)|
|Up to 2TB of DDR4 memory capacity (across 8 channels)|
|128 Lanes of PCIe® Gen 3|
|Integrated security subsystem|
|Boosts performance and compute density|
|Accelerates memory-intensive application performance|
|Extends server capabilities without incremental PCI switching|
|Protects and enables secure multi-tenancy per CPU/SoC|

See how AMD EPYC™ Processors stack up against Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors.
- AMD EPYC™ 7601 processor supports up to 8 channels of DDR4-2667, versus the Xeon Platinum 8180 processor at 6 channels of DDR4-2667. NAP-42
- AMD EPYC™ processor supports up to 128 PCIe® Gen 3 I/O lanes (in both 1 and 2-socket configuration), versus the Intel® Xeon® SP Series processor supporting a maximum of 48 lanes PCIe® Gen 3 per CPU, plus 20 lanes in the chipset (max of 68 lanes on 1 socket and 116 lanes on 2 socket). NAP-56
- AMD EPYC with 16 DIMM slots supports up to 2TB of memory standard. Intel Xeon Scalable with 12 DIMM slots only supports 768 GB or memory standard.
- All EMD EPYC processors all include unique security features, like SEV (Secure Encrypted Virtualization) and SME (Secure Memory Encryption, that are not available on Intel Xeon Scalable Processors.
