AMD introduced its 2nd Generation AMD EPYC family of processors, AMD EPYC 7002 that deliver performance leadership across a broad number of enterprise, datacenter, cloud and high-performance computing (HPC) workloads.
The 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors feature up to 64 “Zen 2” cores in leading-edge 7nm process technology to deliver record-setting performance while helping reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) by up to 50% across numerous workloads. Google and Twitter announced the deployment of new 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors, whereas, HPE and Lenovo announced the immediate availability of new platforms.
“Today, we set a new standard for the modern datacenter with the launch of our 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors that deliver record-setting performance and significantly lower total cost of ownership across a broad set of workloads,” said Dr. Lisa Su, president and CEO, AMD. “Adoption of our new leadership server processors is accelerating with multiple new enterprise, cloud and HPC customers choosing EPYC processors to meet their most demanding server computing needs.
The 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors are specifically designed for modern datacenter workloads, providing customers an ideal combination of features to help unlock performance and redefine economics in virtualization, cloud, HPC and enterprise applications.
For the enterprise datacenter, 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors offer up to 83% better Java application performance5, up to 43% better SAP SD 2 Tier performance than the competition and provide world record performance on Real Time Analytics with Hadoop.
For modern cloud and virtualization workloads, 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors deliver world record virtualization performance that redefines datacenter economics.
