AMD has announced the launch of the new EPYC 8004 series server-class processors that also signifies the completion of the 4th Generation EPYC family of offerings.
This particular series is designed not only with performance in mind but also matching importance in terms of energy efficiency, platform density, and quiet operations. As such, use cases such as intelligent edge processing, middle to small-scale cloud service, and even telco services are among the members in the recommended lists.
Powered by the efficiency-focused Zen 4c cores plus the new SP6 socket, the better-streamlined memory and I/O features are capable of providing up to two times better SPECpower performance per system watt in addition to the likes of faster video encoding and IoT eEdge gateway workloads when compared against other competitor’s products.
The innate characteristics of efficient computing also help in the aspects of operation costs and at times indirect smaller TCO figures while maintaining core density and throughput scales.
AMD also revealed partner solutions like Dell’s PowerEdge C6615 and Lenovo ThinkEdge SE455 V3 servers containing the new chips which can be obtained or accessed by various B2B and prosumer clients. Cloud people may also find similar virtual services powered by them in Microsoft Azure.
Here’s a quick table summarizing all the SKUs available for the EPYC 8004 series.
