AMD EPYC:

AMD is taking back on INTEL’s Server CHIP market by launching their new server processor lineup reaching up to a whopping 32 cores and 64 threads 128 PCI-E lanes in a single socket server with 2TB of memory support. And 64 Cores and 128 threads with Dual Socket Servers and 4TB memory support.
Such an amazing Processor Lineup has been launched by AMD and surely is going to be A beast of a Kind.
The Leaks had already mentioned it about a week ago, and now it’s here with complete details.

 

AMD has been struggling with their server processors for a long time now. Especially with the Intel XEON server processors, AMD has been a very limited Part of the server market when it came to the Processor, But now it seems like AMD has finally found its way back.
With these Amazing processors, AMD will now be able to dominate a major part of the server business.

EPYC family:

 

The AMD EPYC family is based on AMD Zen Core design, Using multiple Zeppelin dies, Each Packed with 8 Zen Cores.
The processor uses multiple Zeppelin Dies in a single processor Hence the higher Core and Thread count.

 

The family consists of 12 Processors in total.

EPYC 7251    8Core
EPYC 7281    16Core
EPYC 7301    16 Core
EPYC 7351    16Core
EPYC 7401    24Core
EPYC 7451    24 Core
EPYC 7501    32Core
EPYC 7551    32 Core
EPYC 7601    32Core
EPYC 7351P    16Core
EPYC 7401P    24Core
EPYC 7551P    32 Core

Features

 

The EPYC processor lineup is based on Zen Cores.
A single Processor Supports 16 Sticks 8 Channel Memory Up to 1 Tb capacity using single Socket Server.
Supports 128 PCI-E lanes for all kinds of expansions
A single-P EPYC server will perform Better then Dual-P Intel XEON server with Less Power Consumption. Better Performance/$ experience.
Infinity Fabric used for both die-to-die and socket-to-socket interconnect.
EPYC also features new CPU instructions specifically aimed at the data centre.
EPYC offer a far better bang-per-buck compared to Intel Xeon Broadwell servers in both single- and dual-socket configurations across all price points.
features built-in hardware memory encryption specifically designed to protect virtual machines and containers from each other.

Conclusion:

 

Since the launch of AMD Ryzen. We’ve seen a great improvement from AMD side.
Then the New ThreadRipper And now the EPYC Processor Family.
It is absolutely Amazing to see how AMD has managed to squeeze An epic amount of power in these Processors and trying their best to overcome and dominate the market.

This dramatic comeback from AMD is amazing and appreciable. AMD seems to have put their best effort in this comeback and seems like it was worth it. We’ll see how amazing it’s going to perform one’s the benchmarks are revealed by enthusiasts and experts.
