Customers can expect a new level of integration and performance for their modern data centres thanks to the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors, which are expected to deliver up to 2x the performance-per-socket and up to 4x peak FLOPS per-socket over AMD EPYC 7001 series processors; along with a comprehensive, consistent feature set of I/O, memory and security features, across 8 to 64 "Zen 2" cores.
Boston's solutions also take advantage of next-generation PCIe 4.0, offering a colossal increase in system throughput with the opportunity to add more peripherals per motherboard. Also, available for the first time on x86 is DDR4-3200 memory allowing for 2 DIMMs/channel capacity of 4TB/socket, making them ideal for a multitude of workloads and industries including HPC, Cloud/Virtualisation, Render Farm, CAD and Storage.
Manoj Nayee, Managing Director, Boston Limited, stated: "The arrival of 2nd Gen EPYC has been much anticipated and with it brings a number of additional technology advancements not previously available for x86 servers. Initial testing shows that these processors are a disruptor to the market. I am delighted to announce that testing is now available at Boston Labs on a wide range of 2nd Gen EPYC Processors; for customers to discover the benefits for themselves."
"Driven by AMD's history of datacentre innovation, including 7nm process technology, the first x86 supplier to support PCIe 4.0, and embedded security features, the 2nd Gen EPYC processors set a new standard for the modern data centre", stated Scott Aylor, Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Datacentre Solutions Group, AMD. "Together, these innovations deliver the breakthrough performance customers need."
