Introducing GIGABYTE's New Generation of AMD EPYC Server Systems

AMD Epyc

While the 2nd gen EPYC series will probably not find its way into many consumer builds, Google, Microsoft and Twitter have all announced that will deploy 2nd gen EPYC processors within their datacentres.

Launching the EPYC Rome is quite important in the context AMD's processor war with Intel, which announced its 7nm chips, Ice Lake, for 2021.

Leveraging the 2 Gen AMD EPYC™ processors' support of PCI Express 4.0, innovative architecture, and four times peak FLOPS per-socket performance over the AMD EPYC 7001 series processor, mutual customers can maximize their data center return-on-investment.

"Driven by AMD's history of datacenter innovation, including 7nm process technology, the first x86 supplier to support PCIe 4.0, and embedded security features, the second generation AMD EPYC Processors set a new standard for the modern datacenter", said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, Datacenter Solutions Group at AMD. Later this year, Google will also make virtual machines that run on the chips available to Google Cloud customers.

Better, according to AMD, its new server processor as better-performing than more expensive parts from Intel, says Bloomberg.

As for Twitter, it will use EPYC 7002 processors "across its data center infrastructure" in the next few months. "Using the AMD EPYC 7702 processor, we can scale out our compute clusters with more cores in less space using less power, which translates to 25% lower [total cost of ownership] for Twitter", said its senior director of engineering, Jennifer Fraser. AMD EPYC Rome's flagship is the 64-core, 128-thread 7742 chip, with a 2.25 base frequency, 225 default TDP and 256MB of total cache, starts at $6,950. Compared with the first generation Epyc processor launch back in 2017, yesterday evening saw a big change in initial support.

AMD's share of the server market is now sitting at around 3 percent, which is up from close to 0% before EPYC arrived on the scene in 2017. Also available for system builders is GIGABYTE's MZ32-AR0 motherboard which forms the base of the R152 and R272 server series. - VMware and AMD announced a close collaboration to deliver support for new security and other features of the high-performance 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors within VMware vSphere.

GIGABYTE's AMD EPYC H-Series 2U 4 Node Server Systems have already gained widespread praise and customer approval worldwide, and are the systems of choice for several global HPC system providers. Why?
