AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series CPUs Set New Standard as Highest Performance Server Processor

ꟷ New AMD EPYC processor extends per socket performance leadership and best per core performance1** with new “Zen 3” cores and modern security featuresꟷ

ꟷPartners including AWS, Cisco, Dell Technologies, Google Cloud, HPE, Lenovo, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Supermicro, Tencent Cloud and others grow EPYC processor ecosystem to an expected 400 cloud instances and 100 new OEM platforms by end of 2021ꟷ

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At a digital event, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announced the new AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series CPUs, which includes the AMD EPYC 7763, the world’s highest-performing server processor2*. The new EPYC 7003 series processors help HPC, cloud and enterprise customers do more, faster, by delivering the best performance of any server CPU with up to 19% more instructions per clock3.

“With the launch of our 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors, we are incredibly excited to deliver the fastest server CPU in the world. These processors extend our data center leadership and help customers solve today’s most complex IT challenges, while substantially growing our ecosystem,” said Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager, Data Center and Embedded Solutions Business Group. “We not only double the performance over the competition in HPC, cloud and enterprise workloads with our newest server CPUs, but together with the AMD Instinct GPUs, we are breaking the exascale barrier in supercomputing and helping to tackle problems that have previously been beyond humanity’s reach.”

AMD EPYC Processors, Powering the Modern Data Center

Available immediately, AMD EPYC 7003 Series Processors have up to 64 “Zen 3” cores per processor and introduce new levels of per-core cache memory, while continuing to offer the PCIe® 4 connectivity and class-leading memory bandwidth4 that defined the EPYC 7002 series CPUs. 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors also include modern security features through AMD Infinity Guard, supporting a new feature called Secure Encrypted Virtualization-Secure Nested Paging (SEV-SNP). SEV-SNP expands the existing SEV features on EPYC processors, adding strong memory integrity protection capabilities to help prevent malicious hypervisor-based attacks by creating an isolated execution environment.

All these features and capabilities combine to help drive faster time to results and improve business outcomes for HPC, cloud and enterprise customers.

  • For HPC customers that demand the most throughput computing capabilities to do more simulations in a given time period, or use bigger data sets or more complex models, AMD EPYC 7003 Series processors enable faster time to discovery with more I/O5 and memory throughput, and powerful “Zen 3” cores that deliver up to twice the performance for HPC workloads compared to the competition6.
  • For cloud providers who need compute density and security capabilities, AMD EPYC 7003 Series processors offer the highest core density7, advanced security features and up to twice the integer performance compared to the competition8.
  • For the enterprise, where performance and time to value are critical to support the new “work from anywhere” environment , AMD EPYC 7003 Series processors help improve efficiency, and deliver value and performance. The new processors increase transactional database processing by up to 19%9, improve Hadoop big data analytic sorts by up to 60% with 61% better price to performance than the competition10, and offer superior performance for flexible Hyperconverged Infrastructure - all of which help CIOs turn data into actionable insights faster.

Partners Using AMD EPYC 7003 Series Processors

The AMD EPYC processor ecosystem is expected to grow significantly by the end of 2021 with more than 400 cloud instances using all generations of EPYC processors and 100 new server platforms using 3rd Gen EPYC processors. AMD EPYC 7003 Series processor-based solutions are available now through numerous OEMs, ODMs, cloud providers and channel partners around the world.
