AMD has today launched a new EPYC processor designed for the data center industry, cloud, and enterprise customers.
The AMD EPYC 7003 Series central processing units (CPUs) include up to 64 Zen 3 cores per processor, and also include the EPYC 7763 server processor for a performance and per-core cache memory boost. The 7003 series also includes PCIe 4 connectivity and eight memory channels per processor.
Security features include AMD Infinity Guard and a new feature called Secure Encrypted Virtualization-Secure Nested Paging (SEV-SNP). This adds memory integrity protection capabilities to create an isolated execution environment. This can help to prevent hypervisor-based attacks.
According to AMD, cloud providers can leverage the 7003 Series’ high core density, security features, and improved integer performance.
Further, high performance computing (HPC) customers can leverage the 7003 series’ faster time to recovery due to more I/O and memory throughput, and the Zen 3 cores.
