2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ are a new breed of server processors which sets a higher standard for data centers.

Groundbreaking design makes AMD EPYC™ #1 in performance across industry standard benchmarks1, holding 170+ world records to date.2. Performance you can count on to propel your modern data center workloads. ’Hardened at the Core’ protection helps defend against side-channel attacks and EPYC's secure encrypted virtualization features help keep your data safe. The processor’s agility helps you manage new deployments and changing workloads, with the system resources you need, simply and cost-effectively. AMD is the server processor company you can count on for innovation and leadership today and into the future.

Performance Leadership

Virtually everything runs better on AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series powered servers. Whether you run enterprise applications, virtualized and cloud computing environments, software-defined infrastructure, high-performance computing, or data analytic applications. EPYC™ processor-based systems are #1 on industry benchmarks, including those measuring integer, floating-point, virtualization, database, and HPC performance1. AMD EPYC™ 7742 processor has set new world records that establish AMD as THE performance leader.

The secret is under the hood

AMD Infinity Architecture is a hybrid multi-die architecture that is reaching new heights with AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series processors. AMD Infinity Architecture now decouples two streams: eight dies for the processor cores, and one I/O die that supports security and communication outside the processor. With the agility to deliver the leading-edge process technology for CPU cores while letting I/O circuitry develop at its own rate, new capabilities can be brought to market faster with EPYC™ because its die design is not monolithic. This has allowed EPYC™ to race to leadership in the market and continue to innovate in the future.

First-to-market PCIe® 4.0 readiness

AMD EPYC™ is the first and only current x86-architecture server processor supporting PCIe 4.06. PCIe 4.0 delivers double the I/O performance over PCIe 3.0. You can use 128 lanes of I/O to double the network bandwidth that ties together HPC clusters and satisfies voracious needs for east-west bandwidth. For other application needs and in virtualized environments, you can connect with higher speed to GPU accelerators, NVMe drives, and you can even use integrated disk controllers to access spinning disks without the typical bottleneck of a PCIe RAID controller.
