Penguin Computing expands Altus product family with AMD EPYC 7002 series processor-based systems, reaching new levels of data centre performance

7 Aug 2019 Fremont - Penguin Computing, an expert in high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI), and enterprise data centre solutions and services, has made available AMD EPYC 7002 series processors for Penguin Computing's Altus server platform. AMD EPYC 7002 series processors 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. These advantages enable customers to transform their infrastructure with the right resources to drive performance and reduce bottlenecks.

At launch, the AMD EPYC 7002 series processors will be supported as a drop-in upgrade, providing access to DDR4-3200MHz memory speeds on existing Altus platform systems. Additionally, Penguin Computing is complementing the existing Altus product family with new systems specifically designed to maximize the benefits of the 7002 series processor such as PCIe Gen 4 and is to be offered in both 21-inch Open Compute Project (OCP) systems and standard EIA 19" systems. Penguin Computing customers have the flexibility to deploy the EPYC 7002 series in whichever platform, form-factor, or configuration is best suited to their workloads.

"We are thrilled to bring the AMD EPYC 7002 Series into the Penguin Computing Altus product family", stated William Wu, Vice President of Hardware Products at Penguin Computing. "We've been waiting for this processor, which enables us to deliver breakthrough performance in solutions designed for AI and HPC workloads. In particular, we expect the EPYC 7002 to utilize PCIe Gen 4 to bolster workloads that had been bottlenecked by the bandwidth of PCIe Gen 3."

Based on the "Zen 2" CPU Architecture, AMD EPYC 7002 series processors provide up to 64 7nm cores, with up to 4GB of 3200MHz DDR4 memory and 128 PCIe Gen 4 lanes. These processors set a new standard for the modern data centre with breakthrough performance, advanced features, and embedded security protection to help defend against attacks to the CPU, applications and data.

"The launch of the AMD EPYC 7002 series processors will enable enterprises to transform their data centre operations at the pace of their business", stated Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, Datacenter Solutions Group, AMD. "We're excited to facilitate Penguin Computing to deliver on their solution. Together, these innovations deliver the breakthrough performance that AI and HPC workloads demand."
