AMD’s epyc processor is favored by many large manufacturers. Even TSMC, which is OEM for AMD, uses its chip.
AMD’s second-generation epyc server processor continues to win the favor of new customers, covering cloud, enterprise, high-performance computing (HPC) and other fields. In addition to Nokia, IBM cloud and other large manufacturers announced to expand the use of new processors and apply them to the cloud or HPC and other workloads, and to manufacture the second-generation epyc with 7Nm for AMD TSMC, the processor company, also announced that it will adopt the processor and invest in new generation research and development of cutting-edge process technology.
At the conference held in Rome, Italy, amd stated that the development of the second generation epyc processor code named Rome continues to win the favor of new customers. Amd also announced the addition of an AMD epyc 7H12 processor, which has 64 cores and 128 threads, 2.6GHz base frequency and 3.3GHz maximum boost frequency, 280W thermal design power consumption (TDP) and other features, and is specially designed for HPC Users and related workloads can be tailored to take advantage of water cooling and heat dissipation to play a leading role in super computing performance. For example, Linpack achieves about 4.2 teraflops (1 trillion floating point operations per second).
Dell released five Dell EMC PowerEdge platforms equipped with second-generation epyc processors. These platforms are developed and optimized from scratch, and can support various functions of new epyc processors such as pci4.0.
IBM cloud pointed out that the second generation epyc processor can support customers’ needs in various specific areas, including helping to improve cloud security, providing better memory bandwidth for big data and analysis workloads, and providing core expansion capability and breakthrough performance for container workloads. Nokia emphasizes that the second generation epyc processor greatly accelerates its cloud packet core system, and assists service providers to provide integrated broadband, Internet of things and machine type communication services for 5g networks.
Atos, the digital transformation operator, announced that its genci product line uses the second generation epyc processor to expand the application field of supercomputers for the French scientific community. The main reasons for its adoption are its breakthrough efficiency, efficiency and total cost of ownership. Ovhcloud, a global cloud vendor, announced the release of a new high-level host instance using amdepyc processor, which will be launched at the end of 2019.
Another case that attracts the market’s attention is TSMC, AMD’s wafer foundry partner. In the second half of the year, TSMC will contract the 7Nm second generation epyc processor for AMD. TSMC will repay its success. In addition to OEM production, it also decides to use it. TSMC announced that it will adopt the AMD second generation epyc processor and invest in the research and development of new generation research and cutting-edge process technology.
Forrest norrod, senior vice president of AMD, said that he saw Dell launch a new platform and many new customers adopt the second generation epyc to launch solutions for cloud, enterprise computing, HPC and other fields. AMD will continue to push epyc processor to a new peak, and is very excited to see the full support of hardware, software, and cloud suppliers to join hands to overcome the challenges faced by modern data centers.
