AMD launches 3rd Gen EPYC processors with ‘double’ performance over Intel Xeon

AMD has officially introduced its new server processor series using Zen 3 cores. Designed to set the new standard for server processors, the 3rd generation of EPYC CPUs offer the best per-core performance and extend the series leadership in per-socket performance.

Offering a 19% IPC gain over the previous generation, AMD EPYC 7003 series processors are the company’s latest solution for HPC, cloud, and enterprise systems. As per Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager of data centre and embedded solutions business group at AMD, the new AMD EPYC processors “not only double the performance over the competition”, but also break the exascale barrier when paired with AMD Instinct GPUs.

Bringing up to 64 Zen 3 cores with dedicated cache memory, the EPYC 7003 series processors support PCIe 4.0 and up to 8x channels of DDR4-3200 memory. The new EPYC processors also feature the AMD Infinity Guard security feature set, which includes a new feature named Secure Encrypted Virtualization-Secure Nested Paging (SEV-SNP). With SEV-SNP, memory integrity protection is added to better secure systems against hypervisor-based attacks.

The following table details the EPYC 7003 series specifications and pricing:

By the end of 2021, AMD expects to grow the EPYC ecosystem to over 400 cloud instances and 100 new platforms powered by 3rd Gen EPYC processors. The AMD EPYC 7003 series are now available in multiple systems from Lenovo, Dell, HPE, Cisco, and Supermicro. VMWare also announced that the latest release of VMware vSphere 7 will support the new security features introduced by these CPUs. Moreover, cloud companies such as AWS, Google, Microsoft, Tencent, and Oracle will provide server instances powered by the new EPYC processors.
