AES Cryptographic Acceleration

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.

Re: AES Cryptographic Acceleration

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

Re: AES Cryptographic Acceleration

Yes. EPYC supports these instructions. 

Good summary here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AES_instruction_set
