Mellanox optimizes solutions for AMD EPYC processor-based datacenters

AMD slings 64 cores at its 7nm Epyc Rome Zen 2 processors

AMD 2nd generation EPYC processors are up to 50% more powerful and 50% cheaper than Xeon Platinum Cascade Lake

Apparently, customers can augment their data center return on investment by leveraging the 2 Gen AMD EPYC™ processors' support of PCI Express 4.0, advanced structures, and four times peak FLOPS per-socket functioning over the AMD EPYC 7001 series processors. Alternatively, Intel manufactures chips in its own factories and uses a new manufacturing process, which may be responsible for being behind the schedule in delivering their new Ice Lake chips.

AMD made an announcement at a conference that was held in San Francisco on the 7th that it would release '2nd Gen EPYC processor (model name: 7002 series)'.

Seemingly, with supreme PCI Express 4.0 connectivity, the AMD EPYC™ 7002 processor program is also flawless for innovative server-based storage solutions. "Its scalable compute, memory and I/O performance will expand out ability to drive innovation forward in our infrastructure and will give Google Cloud customers the flexibility to choose the best VM for their workloads". It is the first processor to be based on 7nm process and it has twice better performance than its previous generation while reducing power consumption by half.

Google also said it deployed the upgraded EPYC processors internally, and will add them to its cloud by 2020.

2nd gen EPYC chips are also the first x86 server processors to support PCIe 4.0, with all CPUs able to utilise PCIe 128 lanes. The new server series is based on the 7nm Zen 2 core technology offering 15 percent IPC increase over its predecessor.

2nd Gen EPYC processor has vastly improved performance.

Every AMD EPYC Rome series processor is composed of eight Zen 2 dies that are interlinked through the second generation Infinity fabric with an I/O die that serves as a core hub of the processor. "Today, through our expanded relationship with AMD, we are pushing boundaries on performance and efficiency in ways that will accelerate our customers' intelligent transformation. A ideal example is video security in smart city, campus and mass transit environments where public safety organizations need that additional computing power in confined spaces using less energy so they can better monitor and analyze potential threats". - Dell Technologies announced the upcoming availability of newly designed servers optimized for 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors. The latest CPU line up from AMD takes one notch higher of its Xeon rivals that still use 14nm technology.

Lipacis, who has an buy rating rating and a $40 price target on AMD shares, noted that the chipmaker gained about 2 to 5 percentage points of chip share in the server, desktop, and notebook markets in 2Q19 versus 2Q18. GIGABYTE's BMC management solution is also notable in providing HTML5-based iKVM remote management client as a standard feature, with no additional add-on license required to purchase. "VMware and AMD's ongoing engineering collaboration is focused on delivering optimal application performance and security for our mutual customers", said Krish Prasad, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Platform Business Unit, VMware. "We both see the value in driving security deeper into the infrastructure especially as modern IT infrastructure becomes more distributed".

AMD has been relatively a newcomer to data center market that requires high-performance computing system. "What you can expect from us is consistency".

Applied Micro Devices AMD could hit soon hit record highs.
