AMD Epyc 7000 Series
AMD in May introduced its first new server processor in five years, a new Epyc line of x86-compatible processors. The company said its new server processors offer stronger performance than Intel's latest Broadwell-based processors and the ability to bring significant total cost of ownership savings.
The Zen-based Epyc platform consists of nine 7000 processors that boast a larger memory bandwidth and broader array of input/output lines. The lineup ranges from eight-core, 16-thread pieces up to 32-core, 64-thread CPUs with four eight-core dies.
