Does the EPYC 7000 series processors support AES cryptographic acceleration, much like Intel's AES-NI? I want to run OpenSSL that contains AES-NI optimizations and was wondering if it is supported on the EPYC chip. If so, where can I find instructions to make use of this. Thanks.
All Zen cores (thus all EPYC CPUs) support AES-NI
You may refer this doc for other features: AMD64 Architecture Programmer's Manual, Volume 1
Yes. EPYC supports these instructions.
Good summary here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AES_instruction_set
