  • AMD expands EPYC processor family with two new models

    AMD has released two new models of EPYC processors. In parallel with the release of new products, representatives of the chipmaker announced the successful launch of the Hawk supercomputer with high performance, built on the second-generation EPYC platform.

    At the time, the second-generation AMD EPYC processor was the first X86 server processor equipped with 64 cores. The next addition to the family was AMD EPYC 7662, built on the Zen 2 architecture. The manufacturer calls it one of the fastest chips in the world, but with a more humane price tag compared to competitors.

    Another new product was the AMD EPYC 7532 processor, equipped with 32 cores with a total cache memory of 256 MB. This model is suitable for cache-sensitive workloads, providing each core with access to 8 MB of third-level cache memory. Compared to the Intel Xeon 6248 in the ANSYS CFX test, the AMD EPYC 7532 model managed to show 111% higher performance.

    As in the previously presented processors, both new products support 128 lines of PCIe 4.0 and RAM with a frequency of up to 3200 MHz. These chips are equipped with Dell EMC PowerEdge R6515, R7515, R6525, R7525 and C6525 servers, and they are expected to be used in HPE and Lenovo server solutions in the future.

    In addition to the presentation of two new processors, AMD participated in the opening of the Hawk supercomputer at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. With more than 5,000 computing nodes and a theoretical peak performance of 26 petaflops, the Hawk supercomputer has become one of the fastest high-performance computers in the world. It is designed to improve development in the areas of energy, climate, mobility, and health.

    The Hawk supercomputer, created in collaboration with HPE, leverages the performance and unique capabilities of AMD's second-generation EPYC 7742 processors, allowing scientists and researchers to perform more complex simulations faster than ever before. In addition, it uses the largest number of second-generation EPYC processors in Germany: this is one of the largest implementations of AMD server processors in the entire EMEA region.
