AMD makes available the new AMD EPYC 8004 Series processors, completing the 4th Gen AMD EPYC CPU family of workload-optimized processors. These new processors bring the “Zen 4c” core into a purpose-built CPU, enabling hardware providers to create energy-efficient and differentiated platforms that can power applications from the intelligent edge, such as manufacturing, all the way to the data center for cloud services and storage.
“The new EPYC 8004 Series processors extend AMD leadership in single socket platforms by offering excellent CPU energy efficiency in a package tuned to meet the needs of space and power-constrained infrastructure,” says Dan McNamara, senior vice president and general manager, Server Business, AMD. “AMD has delivered multiple generations of data center processors that provide outstanding efficiency, performance, and innovative features. Now with our 4th Gen EPYC CPU portfolio complete, that leadership continues across a broad set of workloads—from enterprise and cloud, to intelligent edge, technical computing and more.”
Delivering Efficiency and Performance
With the AMD EPYC 8004 series processors, features include the following:
Energy Efficiency for the Intelligent Edge: Using the “Zen 4c” core and new SP6 socket, which brings streamlined memory, and I/O features, the EPYC 8004 series processor can provide SPECpower performance.
Optimizing Savings for Intelligent Edge Deployments: Intelligent edge deployments focus on smaller nodes of servers, rather than full racks. In an intelligent edge deployment of one, three or 10 servers, energy efficiency of an AMD EPYC 8004 series processor-based server can potentially save customers significant expenses in energy costs over 5 years, with better core density and more throughput, the company notes.
