Elevate your business productivity with AMD EPYC™ server processors. Read the latest blogs on how AMD EPYC™ is delivering exceptional performance and energy efficiency across various deployments and industries.
AMD launched 4th Gen EPYC 9004 series processors in November of 2022 and have seen tremendous customer adoption. But there are a number of businesses who need to refresh their server infrastructure but are not ready to adopt the newer (and often more costly) technologies of DDR5 and PCIe® Gen 5. These customers need cost-effective, proven technology solutions to run mainstream applications effectively. To address this need, AMD is extending the life of its well-regarded 3rd Generation AMD EPYC™ processors through 2026 and introducing six new processor SKUs.
4th Gen AMD EPYC™ processors with AMD 3D V-Cache™ technology stack additional SRAM directly on top of the compute die, thereby tripling the total L3 cache size to as much as 1,152 MB processor compared to a maximum of 384 MB for standard AMD EPYC 9004 processors. This supersized cache can relieve memory bandwidth pressure by storing a large working dataset very close to the cores using that data, which can significantly speed up many technical computing workloads. These new processors continue the high-performance legacy established by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors with AMD 3D V-Cache technology and add notable 32-core and top-of-stack processor performance uplifts. AMD 3D V-Cache technology is fully transparent to the host operating system, with neither special requirements nor code changes required to fully realize additional performance.
This blog describes why AMD Ryzen™ 9 processors in servers are ideal for critical financial workloads, discusses the Strategic Technology Analysis Center (STAC®) and the STAC-N1 benchmark, and then describes the systems tested and the results of those tests.
The tech industry is in a perpetual struggle to achieve equilibrium between compute, storage and networking for maximum performance. For now, storage—or, more precisely, the location of large data sets—is the problem, and chiplets, pioneered by AMD, is one solution.
Today, I am excited to talk about the newest member of the 4th Gen AMD EPYC product family: AMD EPYC 8004 Series Processors (formerly codenamed “Siena”). These latest additions to the 4th Gen AMD EPYC lineup propel datacenter and AI technology toward new horizons because they are purpose-built to deliver strong performance with high energy efficiency and built-in security capabilities in a 1P package optimized for diverse workloads including, telco, edge, remote office, and datacenter deployments.
The new AMD EPYC 97X4 Processors, are the highest-performing members of the processor family formerly code-named “Bergamo”. These processors offer no-compromise performance, density, and energy efficiency for containers, cloud native computing, and modern applications.
At our Datacenter and AI Technology Premier event, AMD expanded the 4th Gen AMD EPYC ™ processor family by introducing two additional processor models in the 4th Gen AMD EPYC family. First, AMD debuted the AMD EPYC 97x4 processors, codenamed “Bergamo”, the industry’s first x86 processors purpose-built for cloud-native computing. You can read more about it in my previous blog. This blog discusses AMD EPYC 9xx4 processors with AMD 3D V-Cache™ technology, codenamed “Genox-X”.
The hard costs (Power, Cooling, Maintenance, Licensing, etc.) of not replace aging servers may actually be more expensive that upgrading to AMD EPYC based servers - AND that doesn't count the soft costs - like increased unplanned downtime and increased security risks. By upgrading to AMD, you could realize a 24% per core performance gain, while decreasing annual costs by ~50%.
This week, we introduced two additional processor models to the 4th Gen AMD EPYC™ processor family at the Datacenter and AI Technology Premier. I am excited to take this opportunity to provide an update on the software ecosystem readiness and showcase some of the performance proof points for the AMD EPYC 97x4 processors.
A new AMD STAC-N1™ benchmark result powered by 4th Gen AMD EPYC™ 9374F processors using UDP over 25GbE using AMD Xilinx OpenOnload® on Red Hat Enterprise Linux® 8.6 with AMD Xilinx XtremeScale™ X2522-25G-PLUS adapters was just published. The system under test was two HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen11 servers powered by AMD EPYC™ 9374Fprocessors @ 3.85 GHz (4.3 GHz boost1). The benchmark results demonstrate that 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors are ideal for the Financial Services Industry (FSI) and provide evidence that the AMD acquisition of Xilinx delivers strong performance and adaptive computing to this market.
