AMD has finally showcased its entire lineup of datacenter CPUs called EPYC. In total, AMD has unveiled nine different EPYC datacenter processors. For those who aren’t aware: AMD’s EPYC processor branding was first announced at this year’s Computex 2017.
Here is AMD’s EPYC datacenter CPU lineup in full:
AMD’s EPYC datacenter processors range from having 8 cores and 16 threads up to 32 cores and 64 thread. Meanwhile, the base frequency of these processors range from 2.0GHz to 2.3GHz; the max boost frequency, on the other hand, are anywhere from 2.7GHz up to 3.2GHz. Besides that, EPYC processors also boasts TDP ratings of 120W up to 180W.
Two rather interesting features of AMD’s EPYC processors are that they come with eight channels DDR4 RAM support and 128 PCIe lanes. AMD has also introduces its “Infinity Fabric” technology on EPYC processors to ensure efficient interconnection between two EPYC CPUs in a two-socket system.
When it comes to pricing, AMD has stated that its EPYC lineup of processors will be priced anywhere from US$400 (about RM1,715) up to a whooping price tag of US$4000 (around RM17,152). Despite their eye-opening prices, AMD’s EPYC processors do, at least, perform better compared to their Intel Xeon equivalent. That said, it remains to be seen whether AMD will be able to benefit greatly from its latest venture into the datacenter market.
