It competes with Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) which has been a dominant force in the data center space and in the PC processor market for many years to supply chips that act as the main computing brains for PCs, servers, gaming and artificial intelligence. These processors set a new standard for the modern datacenter with breakthrough performance, advanced features, and embedded security protection to help defend against attacks to the CPU, applications and data. "Adoption of our new leadership server processors is accelerating with multiple new enterprise, cloud and HPC customers choosing EPYC processors to meet their most demanding server computing needs".

Mellanox Technologies, a leading supplier of end-to-end smart interconnect solutions for data center servers, has reportedly announced that InfiniBand ConnectX® and Mellanox Ethernet smart adapter solutions have been optimized for delivering groundbreaking performance and scalability for the AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series processor-based compute & storage infrastructures.

Virtualization drives server resource utilization up and operational costs down, making virtualization performance a key measure of cloud and data center effectiveness and efficiency.

GIGABYTE will release our complete AMD EPYC 7002 Series product lineup in several different waves over the second half of 2019.

HPE is celebrating new feats of engineering and performance in two of its new servers, all thanks to the power of AMD processors. "Additionally, Penguin Computing is complementing the existing Altus product family with new systems specifically created to maximize the benefits of the 7002 Series Processor such as PCIe Gen 4 and is to be offered in both 21-inch Open Compute Project (OCP) systems and standard EIA 19" systems. GIGABYTE's BMC management solution is also notable in providing HTML5-based iKVM remote management client as a standard feature, with no additional add-on license required to purchase. "The HPE ProLiant servers based on 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors will unleash new levels of performance and deliver exceptional TCO to customers looking to transform their data centre". "We've been waiting for this processor, which enables us to deliver breakthrough performance in solutions designed for AI and HPC workloads".

For HPC, 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors offer an unmatched combination of record-setting floating point performance and the most DRAM memory and I/O bandwidth in its class to supercharge HPC workloads, including up to 2x better performance in computational fluid dynamics and up to 72 percent higher performance structural analysis.

In addition, TYAN offers drop-in support for AMD EPYC 7002 Series processors on existing platforms through BIOS updates [i]. Other product names used in this publication are for identification purposes only and may be trademarks of their respective companies.

So these processors aren't really for the average Joe, but they do show how AMD is really pushing the performance of the Zen 2 architecture across its CPU selection. Results may vary with production silicon testing. More information at www.penguincomputing.com. The new server series is based on the 7nm Zen 2 core technology offering 15 percent IPC increase over its predecessor. Actual results with production silicon may vary. "Zen 2" has 2X the core density of "Zen", and when multiplied by 2X peak FLOPs per core, at the same frequency, results in 4X the FLOPs in throughput.
