Performance you can count on to propel your modern datacenter workloads. ’Hardened at the Core’ protection helps defend against side-channel attacks and EPYC's secure encrypted virtualization features help keep your data safe. The processor’s agility helps you manage new deployments and changing workloads, with the system resources you need, simply and cost-effectively. AMD is the server processor company can count on for innovation and leadership today and into the future.

Performance leadership

performance optimize

Virtually everything runs better on AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series powered servers. Whether you run enterprise applications, virtualized and cloud computing environments, software-defined infrastructure, high-performance computing, or data analytic applications. EPYC™ processor-based systems are #1 on industry benchmarks, including those measuring integer, floating-point, virtualization, database, and HPC performance1. AMD EPYC™ 7742 processor has set new world records that establish AMD as THE performance leader.

The secret is under the hood

accelerated throughput

AMD Infinity Architecture is a hybrid multi-die architecture that is reaching new heights with AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series processors. AMD Infinity Architecture now decouples two streams: eight dies for the processor cores, and one I/O die that supports security and communication outside the processor. With the agility to deliver the leading-edge process technology for CPU cores while letting I/O circuitry develop at its own rate, new capabilities can be brought to market faster with EPYC™ because its die design is not monolithic. This has allowed EPYC™ to race to leadership in the market and continue to innovate in the future.

EPYC™ by the numbers

AMD EPYC™ has been engineered for datacenters that rely on CPU performance. From oil and gas exploration, to in-memory databases, to big data analytics to production rendering to standard datacenter applications, highly parallel workloads have more cores to work with. AMD EPYC™ 7002 generation processors scale from 8 to 64 cores (16 to 128 threads per socket). No other x86 vendor today enables such a core density in the market5.

Be top of the security chain

AMD EPYC™ is 'Hardened at the Core' with advanced security features. It is the first server CPU with an integrated and dedicated security processor providing the foundation for Secure Boot, Secure Memory Encryption (SME) and Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV). So you can worry less about data risk and focus more on running your business.

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.

All-in feature set

AMD takes pride in having transparent relationships with its partners and customers. This means having an "all-in" feature set that isn’t contrived to extract higher prices from customers.

With AMD EPYC™, you have the agility to choose the processor your application requires without worrying about whether an important feature or capability is included. Whatever the number of cores you choose, you’ll have the I/O, memory, and memory bandwidth to accomplish what you need.

First-to-market PCIe® Gen 4 readiness

business critical data

AMD EPYC™ is the first and only current x86-architecture server processor supporting PCIe® 4.06. PCIe® 4.0 delivers double the I/O performance over PCIe® 3.0. You can use 128 lanes of I/O to double the network bandwidth that ties together HPC clusters and satisfies voracious needs for east-west bandwidth. For other application needs and in virtualized environments, you can connect with higher speed to GPU accelerators, NVMe drives, and you can even use integrated disk controllers to access spinning disks without the typical bottleneck of a PCIe RAID controller.

X86 Compatibility

restrict vulnerabilities

You can have confidence in AMD EPYC™ 7002 generation processors because virtually all software will just work. We work with the open source community and major software vendors to help ensure your applications and enabling software will work exceptionally well with EPYC™. The broad ecosystem of open tools and libraries are more reasons why top cloud providers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Oracle Cloud are providing services to customers based on AMD EPYC™ processors.

1-Socket EPYC™ server advantage

virtual Infrastructure

Traditional CPUs typically must scale up to a 2-socket server to overcome an imbalance of resources. With AMD EPYC™, 1-socket servers satisfy most of your workload needs, while helping you increase density and reduce capital, power, and cooling expenses. With a 1-socket EPYC™ server, you can cut licensing costs up to 50% with ‘per-socket software’8 such as VMware® vSphere or vSAN.
