AMD's second-generation EPYC lineup of server processors is getting three new members starting today. The company has announced the EPYC 7F32, 7F52, and 7F72 processors, with 8, 16, and 24 cores, respectively.
The new processors promise the highest performance per core of any x86 server CPU, edging out AMD's own EPYC 7262, which was the top-rated CPU by the SPEC. It also promises 17% higher performance for SQL Server workloads and 47% higher performance in VMmark compared to the competition. The processors also include support for PCIe 4.0, and the AMD Infinity, which helps with overall performance.
“AMD EPYC continues to redefine the modern data center, and with the addition of three powerful new processors we are enabling our customers to unlock even better outcomes at the heart of the enterprise market,” said Dan McNamara, senior vice president and general manager of the server business unit at AMD. “With our trusted partners, together we are pushing the limits of per core performance and value in hyperconverged infrastructure, commercial HPC and relational database workloads.”
