AMD adds three new EPYC processors to the lineup, promising higher performance per core

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.
