Advanced Micro Devices launched its highest performing data centre processors ever with the debut of the 4th Gen Epyc processors.
FREMONT, CA: The 4th Gen Epyc processors were released by Advanced Micro Devices (AMD: NASDAQ), making them the company's highest-performing data centre CPUs ever. The new series of 4th Gen AMD Epyc processors based on the Zen 4 architecture, announced by the CEO of Santa Clara, California-based AMD, was stated to be the highest-performance core yet from AMD. The processors offer competitive performance against rival Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) and energy efficiency. Additionally, they can assist clients in hastening data centre modernisation for increased application throughput and more useful insights.
The top Epyc processors from AMD can now accommodate 96 cores and compared to the 3rd Gen Epyc processors launched in 2021, these cores can process 14 per cent more instructions per clock cycle. It's more crucial than ever to choose the correct data centre CPU, and 4th Gen EPYC processors deliver leadership in every area. Companies are dedicated to making AMD the partner of choice by providing the industry's broadest portfolio of high-performance and adaptive computing engines. The data centre represents AMD's largest growth potential and top strategic focus.
With 4th Gen EPYC, which provides another significant step forward in performance and efficiency to improve the finest server processor roadmap. They have built the best data centre CPU roadmap in the industry. Customers choosing 4th Gen EPYC to power their data centres may increase performance, consolidate their infrastructure, and reduce energy costs thanks to a greatly enlarged selection of solutions that are on pace to launch from their community of partners.
The cloud will introduce Bergamo in the first half of 2023. The performance per watt-optimised Siena will debut in the second half of 2023, Genoa-X will debut for technical computing in the first half of 2023. Their goal with Epyc was to build the industry's best data centre CPU roadmap.
4th Gen AMD Epyc Details
The 4th Gen AMD Epyc processors can help businesses free up data centre resources to create additional workload processing and accelerate output. The chips have up to 96 cores in a single processor, enabling customers to deploy fewer and more powerful servers to continue to meet their computing needs.
The chips have a security-by-design approach that expands on AMD Infinity Guard, which offers both physical and virtual layers of protection. It has two times the number of encryption keys compared to previous generations.
The core counts of the processors range from 16 to 96, and their power requirements do as well, from 200 to 400 watts. DDR5 memory and PCIe Gen 5 are supported by the Gen 4 CPUs, which are essential for machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI). For memory extension, the CPUs also support CXL 1.1+.
The 4th Gen AMD Epyc processors, corporate vice president for product management at AMD, have shattered 300 distinct performance records, claiming that compared to Intel chips, the competitive gap is growing.
