AMD EPYC Genoa CPU could just be the sustainable solution your data center has been waiting for – and it is on sale as of this moment.
AMD EPYC Genoa CPU Could Just Be the Sustainable Solution Your Data Center Has Been Waiting For
Tech Company AMD now has taken the wraps off its own 4th Gen PYC processors that are built for critical workloads across cloud, enterprise as well as high-performance computing (HPC).
While unveiled at an event in San Francisco, AMD says that the launch will help to deliver increased energy efficiency and also aid its customers in accelerating the process of data center modernization.
The AMD Zen 4 lineup now has been divided into three families which are the standard Zen 4 for EPYC Genoa, the Compute Density-Optimized Zen 4C for EPYC Bergamo, and the cache-optimized Zen 4 V-Cache that is within the EPYC Genoa-X series.
AMD Claims Its New EPYC Line-Up Should Let Its Customers Deployed Fewer but More Powerful Servers
And with close to 96 cores in one single processor, AMD now claims that its new EPYC line-up should let its customers to deployed fewer and yet more powerful servers to help meet up with individual computing needs which will in turn apparently push more flexibility within the data center.
The 4th generation of data center fabric technology as you should know takes a more holistic approach in regards to simplifying and scaling connectivity, as well as the complete set of infrastructure services.
Corporate VP EPYC product management, Ram Peddibhotla, told TechRadar Pro that the qualities of the 4th gen EPYC that puts it up as the best performance server processor comes in three different folds and thus starts with one core.
What Corporate VP EPYC Product Management Has To Say
“We’ve been on a journey of enhancing our core and with Zen 4, we have very strong cores. They are paired with 5nm process nodes – that combination delivers outstanding performance at the socket level and at the pro core level,” he said.
“We built enough of those cores into a package so we are able to deliver 96 cores in a package. When you have that many strong cores, it delivers phenomenal performance. The third quality is the energy efficiency of that. We don’t just look at performance by itself, but look at what power is being consumed.”
AMD stands in its truth that these sets of processors will allow bridging the gap between businesses achieving their sustainability goals and in the process driving real-world dividends and results.
Peddibhotla continuing said that its customers can now save substantial amounts of power consumption and lower energy costs simply by adopting EPYC.
“In a very typical scenario, if you have 15 servers of Intel that are being deployed, instead of deploying those, you could get the same performance by deploying five EPYC servers – that consumes less than half the power,” he said.
“This directly translates to energy savings and sustainability benefits because there is a carbon footprint associated with this energy being produced. In this example of 15 versus five, the difference between the two sides is 25 metric tons of carbon dioxide. That is equivalent to what can be removed from the atmosphere by 30 acres of US forest.”
The Zen 4 Solution Features Up To 12 CCDs, 96 Cores, and 192 Threads
The Zen 4 solution features up to 12 CCDs, 96 cores, and 192 threads, and each one of the CCD comes with 32 MB of L3 cache and 1 MB of L2 cache per core, while Zen 3 on the other hand offers 512 KB per core.
“There are a lot of challenges that data center operators are trying to solve, and EPYC is a very compelling solution for data center operators for performance in general, whether it be the number of things a data center operator is trying to get done or how fast it is trying to get things done,” Peddibhotla continued.
“It’s also a good answer for footprint – you can get a lot more for any given rack, and that’s incredibly valuable for a data center. If you think about the number of racks that can go into a data center, we can get twice the performance out of those racks, which would be the equivalent of building another data center – but for free.”
The 4th Gen AMD EPYC Processor Series Which Is Available On-Premise
The 4th Gen AMD EPYC processor series which is available on-premise or in the cloud expands on AMD infinity guard which is a set of features that offers both physical and virtual layers of protection. AMD additionally doubled the number of encryption keys in contrast to previous generations in a bid to help its customers keep data secure when they are stored in the cloud or in storage.
