The fourth generation of AMD's EPYC server CPUs are now available. These CPUs support PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 and feature up to 96 cores based on Zen 4 architecture.
AMD EPYC 9004 processors are based on the Zen 4 architecture that AMD debuted with its Ryzen 7000 desktop processors. The processors are now manufactured using TSMC's 5nm process, whereas the previous EPYC Milan CPUs were manufactured using a 7nm process. The new EPYC CPUs are comprised of multiple Zen 4 chiplets, each of which contains eight cores, similar to previous generations. However, AMD is increasing the maximum chiplet count per EPYC 9004 processor to twelve. This means that the highest model has 96 cores, whereas prior EPYC CPUs had 64 cores at most. Additionally, AMD is offering processors with 84, 64, 48, 32, 24, and 16 cores. The company offers a total of eighteen distinct models, including faster-clocked F versions.
“Choosing the right data center processor is more important than ever, and 4th Gen EPYC processors deliver leadership in every dimension,” said Dr. Lisa Su, Chair and CEO, AMD. “The data center represents the largest growth opportunity and most strategic priority for AMD, and we are committed to making AMD the partner of choice by offering the industry’s broadest portfolio of high-performance and adaptive computing engines. We have built the best data center CPU roadmap in the industry, and with 4th Gen EPYC we deliver another major step forward in performance and efficiency to make the best server processor roadmap even better. With a significantly expanded set of solutions on-track to launch from our ecosystem of partners, customers selecting 4th Gen EPYC to power their data centers can improve performance, consolidate their infrastructure, and lower energy costs.”
Accelerating Results and Driving Actionable Insights for Businesses
4th Gen AMD EPYC processors are designed to deliver optimizations across market segments and applications, while helping businesses free data center resources to create additional workload processing and accelerate output.
With 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors, businesses can:
All of these features and capabilities ultimately enable customers to use the 4th Gen EPYC processors to drive infrastructure consolidation with similar or better performance; thereby helping reduce the costs and energy consumption of their data center.
Expanding the AMD EPYC Processor Ecosystem
At the “together we advance_data centers” event, AMD executives were backed by numerous cloud, software and OEM partners including Dell Technologies, Google Cloud, HPE, Lenovo, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Supermicro and VMware. These partners highlighted their support for 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors:
4th Gen AMD EPYC can provide up to 2.8X more performance, up to 54 percent less power, have added to the more than 300 world records held by AMD EPYC processors and are supported by a complete software and hardware ecosystem spanning a variety of workloads including, database, virtualization, AI/ML, HPC and more.
