It has been quite the month for datacenter news across the industry. With a lot of information flying around, we want to take a moment to engage directly and answer questions regarding our EPYC™ 7000 series of high-performance server processors, launched in June and designed to once again deliver AMD innovation to the datacenter.


We invite you to join Forrest Norrod, SVP and GM of Enterprise, Embedded & Semi-Custom Products (EESC), Kevin Lepak, AMD Fellow, and me, Scott Aylor, CVP and GM, Enterprise Solutions on Tuesday, July 18 from 12:00-1:00 pm CT for a Facebook Live Q&A where we will be addressing questions from the community about our “Zen” architecture, EPYC processor performance and workload metrics, and our robust ecosystem of OEMs, ODMs, cloud providers and hardware partners that stand behind EPYC. We’ll also be available to answer other technical inquiries on what this new processor means for the datacenter.


As a quick reminder, you can keep up with all things EPYC here.


For more background, below are links to a comprehensive list of EPYC processor information resources, including white papers, AMD Datacenter Tech Day presentations, videos, Launch Day executive presentations and more. You can also access this information in one place here.


We look forward to continuing the EPYC conversation!

AMD’s Embedded technology expands the possible across various market segments, from education to casino gaming to office collaboration to healthcare. The latest example is Sony’s Future Lab concept “T”, a projector prototype that creates interactive space on a table or the surfaces of real objects.


Future Lab Concept T.jpgBy applying advanced machine learning techniques and a highly accurate depth-sensing system, “T” can recognize objects and gestures, transforming the way users interact in a variety of applications. As part of Sony’s Future Lab Program, announced at IFA this year, “T” will be opened up for development with select partners to evaluate new use cases in different situations over the coming months, leveraging feedback to refine and evolve the project.


“T” is powered by an AMD Embedded processor, which provides leading graphics and image processing in a power-efficient package. In addition to enabling high-performance applications, AMD’s power-efficient technology is particularly beneficial for projectors, helping keep heat and energy costs low.


The potential use cases for “T” span showrooms, shop fronts, office spaces and much more. For example, “T” can be used for educational simulation, where users move around different 3D objects on the tabletop to bring ideas to life in a simple, visual and tangible way. What has previously been sketched out on whiteboards during classroom hours moves beyond 2D, dramatically increasing interaction, and inspiring new ways to communicate and collaborate.


AMD is proud to support Sony’s Future Lab concept “T” with its embedded technology and we look forward to the next wave of innovation!
