Right-Size Without Compromise

2-Socket Features and Performance, 1-Socket Budget

AMD EPYC – Powering The Industry’s First No-Compromise 1-Socket Servers

IT organizations across the globe face budget and space constraints that are made worse by underutilized servers. Today those same datacenters lack the choice of a high-performance, 1-socket server designed to increase utilization and lower acquisition costs. AMD EPYC delivers on the promise of helping lower TCO and enables organizations to right-size for key datacenter workloads without feature compromise.

AMD EPYC provides up to 32 cores, 8 memory channels and 128 PCIe® 3.0 lanes per CPU unlocking capabilities and performance previously available only in 2-socket architectures.

GPU Acceleration with EPYC™

GPU Acceleration

EPYC enables up to 6 dedicated GPUs in a single-socket servers with peer-to-peer communication through the CPU. 2-socket and/or PCI switches are no longer needed to get the lanes required to achieve this level of GPU density.

EPYC™ Storage Solution

Scale-Out Storage Solutions

Fast Storage

With EPYC’s 128 PCIe lanes, you no longer need 2 sockets to get the high-bandwidth PCI lanes to allow dense NVMe storage solutions.

Cold Storage

Attach up to 32 SATA devices without the cost of an HBA.

EPYC™ Enterprise Business Applications

Enterprise Business Applications

EPYC allows you to buy only what you need to support your enterprise business application requirements. No more second sockets need to go unused.
