AMD has announced the expansion of its AMD EPYC processor portfolio with the addition of the AMD EPYC 7662 and the AMD EPYC 7532. The American firm said it wants to make sure there are EPYC products for the different types of workloads that customers need to run.
The AMD EPYC 7662 is the company’s fifth 64 core processor in the 2nd generation EPYC stack. It said that the product is great for those who are just coming into the 64-core market as it offers the same performance as Zen 2 cores but at a lower price point when compared to other AMD EPYC 64 core processors.
As for the AMD EPYC 7532, customers will benefit from a high performance 32 core processor that has 256MB of L3 cache. Discussing the ideal use cases for this product, AMD said:
“The AMD EPYC 7532 is great for cache sensitive workloads, like ANSYS CFX, giving each core access up to 8MB of L3 cache. On average across all ANSYS CFX benchmarks, the AMD EPYC 7532 has 111% better performance compared to the Intel Xeon 6248.”
The full specs can be seen here:
|Model||Default TDP (W)||Cores||Threads||Base Frequency (GHz)||Max. Boost Frequency (GHz)||L3 $ (MB)|
|7662||225W||64||128||2.0GHz||Up to 3.3GHz||256MB|
|7532||200W||32||64||2.4GHz||Up to 3.3GHz||256MB|
In terms of the common properties, they both include 128 lanes of PCIe 4.0, support for 3200MHz memory and include advanced security features such as an integrated, dedicated, security processor that provides the foundation for Secure Boot, support for Secure Memory Encryption (SME), and Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV).
Dell and Supermicro will be the first partners supporting this hardware, both processors are available on the Dell EMC PowerEdge R6515, R7515, R6525, R7525 and C6525 servers as well as Supermicro A+ servers. Supermicro’s “Big Twin” server also supports the AMD EPYC 7532. In the coming months, HPE and Lenovo will also add support for these two processors.
