AMD Infinity Architecture

The server architecture for next generation, high performance computing. The AMD Infinity architecture pushes the boundaries for x86 performance, efficiency, security, and overall system throughput to deliver on the promise of next generation high performance computing. Building on the legacy of AMD innovation, the AMD Infinity Architecture empowers system builders and cloud architects alike to unleash the very latest in server performance without sacrificing power, manageability, or the ability to help secure their organisation’s most important asset - their data.

2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors are the first x86 server processors featuring 7nm hybrid-multi-die design and PCIe Gen4. The AMD EPYC family continues to offer the most I/O and DRAM memory of any x86 processor.

Powered by the roadmap of the AMD ‘Zen’ microarchitecture, AMD EPYC 7002 Series processors now with the ‘Zen 2’ core achieve twice the core density. With up to 64 cores per SoC and “Zen 2” features, the EPYC 7002 Series surpasses the 1st Gen EPYC family with 2x cores per SoC, improved Execution Pipelines, higher frequencies, and up to 4x shared L3 Cache. The result, up to 4x theoretical peak FLOPS when compared to 1st Gen AMD EPYC processors.

Leading Edge Efficiency


AMD leads the industry when it comes to innovation that matters for datacentre computing. Whether it’s process leadership with 7nm technologies delivering the same performance using half the energy; or the unparalleled scale of AMD’s Hybrid Multi-Die design packing more cores delivering up to 128 threads per socket, AMD EPYC is the right choice to optimize performance, scale and performance per watt for datacentres of all shapes and sizes.

Throughput to accelerate results

accelerated throughput

Maximizing system throughput is the hallmark of the modern server. Take your performance beyond conventional constraints with AMD EPYC’s superior memory and I/O throughput to supercharge your applications and IT productivity with:

  • Supports double the I/O performance of previous-generation processors
  • 128 lanes of PCIe Gen 4 connectivity
  • PCIe Gen 4 to connect high speed GPU accelerators and blazing fast NVMe drives
  • Integrated disk controllers to access disk drives without the bottleneck of a PCIe RAID controller

Ground-breaking Performance

2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors power the highest-performing x86 servers for the modern datacentre with World Record performance across the major industry benchmarks. Uniquely designed for modern datacentre workloads, AMD EPYC 7002 processors provide an ideal combination of features to help unlock performance and redefine economics in:

Virtualisation and cloud

World record virtualization performance and core capacity help customers reduce TCO, increase revenue streams with existing capacity, and provide advanced security features to private and public cloud customers alike.

Containers and microservices

Improve response time with high core-to-container ratios and near linear scaling of container capacity per server.

In-Memory Databases

Massive memory footprint and industry leading I/O allow large numbers of NVMe drives for fast, in memory performance.


Highest core count, highest DRAM capacity, highest I/O capacity for GPU acceleration and highest-speed interconnect in the industry.

AI/ML Workloads

More PCIe Gen4 lanes than any other x86 server processor, able to support the most directly connected (without PCIe switch) GPUs per server in the industry.

Class-leading security

Featuring advanced security features and a silicon embedded security subsystem, AMD EPYC family of processors are ‘Hardened at the Core’ helping customers guard their most important assets, their data. New 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors, now can cryptographically isolate up to 509 virtual machines per server using AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization with no application changes required. The AMD EPYC family of processors help customers protect their most important assets, their data. From performance-optimized countermeasures to help prevent certain side-channel vulnerabilities, to proactive encryption in memory, AMD EPYC provides advanced protection at scale for modern datacentre computing.


Help protect your business-critical data

business critical data

With a comprehensive set of security tools. AMD developed a suite of processor-based encryption and security elements that help protect data breaches by encrypting it to help limit risk.

Restrict Internal Vulnerabilities

restrict vulnerabilities

With encrypted memory. Attacks on the integrity of main system memory (such as cold-boot attacks) are fruitless because any data that might be obtained is encrypted. No modifications to applications required.

Safeguard Virtual & Cloud Infrastructure

virtual Infrastructure

With built-in encryption for virtual machine memory. Help safeguard application privacy and integrity by enabling the encryption of each virtual machine and hypervisor using one of 509 available and unique encryption keys managed by a dedicated security processor.
