VMware vSphere 7 Now Supports AMD SEV-ES Encryption!

VMware just announced that vSphere 7 Update 1 will add support for AMD SEV-ES encryption!

Find out what this means for enterprise security, and the future of AMD EPYC processors!

 

AMD SEV-ES Encryption : What Is It?

SEV-ES, short for Secure Encrypted Virtualization-Encrypted State, is a hardware-accelerated encryption capability in AMD EPYC processors.

Leveraging both the AMD Secure Processor and the AES-128 encryption engine built into every AMD EPYC processor, SEV-ES encrypts all CPU register contents when a virtual machine stops running.

This prevents the leakage of information from the CPU registers to components like the hypervisor. It can even detect malicious modifications to a CPU register state.

 

VMware vSphere 7 Now Supports AMD SEV-ES Encryption!

VMware vSphere 7 Update 1 adds support for both AMD SEV-ES and AMD EPYC processors.

The AMD Secure Processor in the first-generation EPYC processors can handle up to 15 encryption keys.

That increases to more than 500 encryption keys with the second-generation EPYC processors.

ESXi has many layers of isolation within its virtualised infrastructure, but all of that is implemented in software. They still require a level of trust in the hardware, which is where AMD SEV-ES comes in.

A guest operating system that supports SEV can ask the AMD Secure Processor to issue it an encryption key, for full in-memory, in-hardware encryption.

SEV-ES extends that protection to CPU registers, so that the data inside the CPU itself is encrypted. This protects the data from being read or modified when the virtual machine stops running.

Even a compromised hypervisor that accesses the register data cannot make use of it, because it is now encrypted.

Needless to say, adding support for AMD SEV-ES in vSphere 7 will spur the uptake of AMD EPYC processors in the datacenter.

Google Cloud Confidential VM With 2nd Gen AMD EPYC!

Google recently introduced Confidential Computing, with Confidential VM as the first product, and it’s powered by 2nd Gen AMD EPYC!

Here’s an overview of Confidential Computing and Confidential VM, and how they leverage the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processor!

 

Google Cloud Confidential Computing : What Is It?

Google Cloud encrypts customer data while it’s “at-rest” and “in-transit“. But that data must be decrypted because it can be processed.

Confidential Computing addresses that problem by encrypting data in-use – while it’s being processed. This ensures that data is kept encrypted while in memory and outside the CPU.

 

Google Cloud Confidential VM, Powered By 2nd Gen AMD EPYC

The first product that Google is unveiling under its Confidential Computing portfolio is Confidential VM, now in beta.

Confidential VM basically adds memory encryption to the existing suite of isolation and sandboxing techniques Google Cloud uses to keep their virtual machines secure and isolated.

This will help customers, especially those in regulated industries, to better protect sensitive data by further isolating their workloads in the cloud.

Google Cloud Confidential VM : Key Features

Powered By 2nd Gen AMD EPYC

Google Cloud Confidential VM runs on N2D series virtual machines powered by the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors.

It leverages the Secure Encrypted Virtualisation (SEV) feature in 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors to keep VM memory encrypted with a dedicated per-VM instance key.

These keys are generated and managed by the AMD Secure Processor inside the EPYC processor, during VM creation and reside only inside the VM – making them inaccessible to Google, or any other virtual machines running on the host.

Your data will stay encrypted while it’s being used, indexed, queried, or trained on. Encryption keys are generated in hardware, per virtual machine and are not exportable.

Confidential VM Performance

Google Cloud worked together with the AMD Cloud Solution team to minimise the performance impact of memory encryption on workloads.

They added support for new OSS drivers (name and gvnic) to handle storage traffic and network traffic with higher throughput than older protocols, thus ensuring that Confidential VM will perform almost as fast as non-confidential VM.

Easy Transition

According to Google, transitioning to Confidential VM is easy – all Google Cloud Platform (GCP) workloads can readily run as a Confidential VM whenever you want to.

Available OS Images

In addition to the hardware-based inline memory encryption, Google built Confidential VM on top of Shielded VM, to harden your OS image and verify the integrity of your firmware, kernel binaries and drivers.

Google currently offers images of Ubuntu v18.094, Ubuntu 20.04, Container Optimized OS (COS v81), and RHEL 8.2.

They are currently working with CentOS, Debian and other distributors to offer additional OS images for Confidential VM.

El Capitan Supercomputer : AMD Selected As Node Supplier!

It’s official – AMD has been selected as the node supplier for the El Capitan supercomputer, which is projected to be the world’s most powerful supercomputer when it is fully deployed!

 

El Capitan Supercomputer : A Quick Primer!

El Capitan is a supercomputer funded by the Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) program at the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) from the Department of Energy.

When it is fully deployed in 2023, it will perform complex and increasingly predictive modelling and simulation for the NNSA’s Life Extension Programs (LEPs), which addresses nuclear weapon raging and emergent threat issues.

This will allow the United States to keep its nuclear stockpile safe, secure and reliable, in the absence of underground nuclear testing.

“This unprecedented computing capability, powered by advanced CPU and GPU technology from AMD, will sustain America’s position on the global stage in high-performance computing and provide an observable example of the commitment of the country to maintaining an unparalleled nuclear deterrent,” said LLNL Director Bill Goldstein.

“Today’s news provides a prime example of how government and industry can work together for the benefit of the entire nation.”

Besides supporting the nuclear stockpile, El Capitan will perform secondary US national security missions, including nuclear nonproliferation and counterterrorism.

NNSA laboratories – Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos and Sandia national laboratories – are building machine learning and AI into computational techniques and analysis that will benefit NNSA’s primary missions and unclassified projects such as climate modelling and cancer research for DOE.

To that end, it will use a combination of CPUs and GPUs to exceed 2 exaFLOPS in performance – that’s two quintillion floating point operations per second. That will make it the world’s most powerful supercomputer!

 

El Capitan Supercomputer : AMD Selected As Node Supplier!

El Capitan will be powered by the next-generation AMD EPYC processors, codenamed Genoa and featuring the upcoming AMD Zen 4 processor cores, as well as the next-generation AMD Radeon Instinct GPUs based on a new compute-optimised architecture.

The nodes will run on the AMD Radeon Open Compute (ROCm) heterogenous computing platform, with most of their floating point computing power delivered by the Radeon Instinct GPUs.

Not only will the El Capitan nodes offer significantly greater per-node performance than any current system, they will also offer dramatically better energy efficiency.

El Capitan will also integrated advanced features that have not yet been widely deployed, including :

  • HPE Cray Slingshot interconnect network, which will enable large calculations across many nodes
  • new HPE optics technologies to deliver higher data transmission rates with better power efficiency and reliability
  • new Cray Shasta software platform, with a new container-based architecture

“El Capitan will drive unprecedented advancements in HPC and AI, powered by the next-generation AMD EPYC CPUs and Radeon Instinct GPUs,” said Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager, Datacenter and Embedded Systems Group, AMD.

“Building on our strong foundation in high-performance computing and adding transformative coherency capabilities, AMD is enabling the NNSA Tri-Lab community — LLNL, Los Alamos and Sandia national laboratories — to achieve their mission-critical objectives and contribute new AI advancements to the industry.”

“We are extremely proud to continue our exascale work with HPE and NNSA and look forward to the delivery of the most powerful supercomputer in the world, expected in early 2023.”

2nd Gen EPYC – Everything You Need To Know Summarised!

Leveraging their new Zen 2 microarchitecture and 7 nm process technology, AMD just introduced their 2nd Gen EPYC processors.

Designed to challenge Intel Xeon in the enterprise, cloud and HPC markets, the 2nd Gen EPYC processors promise to deliver “record-setting performance“, while reducing TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) by up to 50%.

Here is everything you need to know about the new 2nd Gen EPYC processors… summarised!

 

The Official 2nd Gen EPYC Product Presentation Summary

Let’s start with a quick 7.5 minute summary of the 2nd Gen EPYC product presentations by Dr. Lisa Su, Mark Papermaster and Forrest Norrod!

Now, let’s take a look at its key features and specifications!

AMD Infinity Architecture Explained

The AMD Infinity Architecture is a fancy name for their new modular chiplet-based design. It allows them to combine up to eight processor dies with a single I/O die on the same package, faster and at lower cost.

The processor dies are fabricated with the industry-leading 7 nm process technology for best performance at lowest power consumption, and thermal output.

The I/O die, on the other hand, can be fabricated on the much cheaper 14 nm process technology, with a much higher yield.

2nd Gen EPYC Is Built On 7nm

The 2nd Gen EPYC processor cores are fabricated on the 7nm process technology. This allows AMD to fit more transistors into a smaller space.

By doubling the transistor density, coupled with microarchitectural optimisations, the 2nd Gen EPYC delivers 4X the floating point performance of the 1st Gen EPYC processors.

The smaller process also increases energy efficiency, reducing both power consumption and heat output. According to AMD, 2nd Gen EPYC will use half the power consumption as the 1st Gen EPYC at the same performance level.

Industry-Leading Performance

AMD claims they will offer up to 90% better integer performance and up to 79% better floating-point performance, than the competing Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 processor.

On top of significantly better performance per socket, they also come with hardware memory encryption, and a dedicated security processor.

Baked-In Security On Multiple Levels

The 2nd Gen EPYC processors are built-in with multiple levels of security features, to harden it against cyberattacks.

  • They have a secure root of trust designed to validate the initial BIOS boot without corruption.
    In virtualised environments, you can use it to cryptographically check that your entire software stack is booted without corruption.
  • They have memory encryption engines built into their memory channels to hardware-encrypt data in the memory, preventing cold boot attacks.
  • In the 2nd Gen EPYC, every virtual machine is now encrypted with one of up to 509 unique encryption keys known only to the processor.
    This protects your data even if a malicious VM finds its way into your virtual machine memory, or if a compromised hypervisor gains access into a guest VM.

2nd Gen EPYC Is PCI Express Gen 4 Ready!

Like the 3rd Gen Ryzen processors, the 2nd Gen EPYC is PCI Express Gen 4 ready.

PCIe 4.0 doubles the bandwidth over PCIe 3.0, and every EPYC processor has 128 lanes to tie together HPC clusters, or connect to GPU accelerators and NVMe drives.

2nd Gen EPYC Is Already Changing The Industry

AMD appeared to have shipped the 2nd Gen EPYC processors early to Google, where they were deployed in production servers for their internal datacenter infrastructure.

Google also plans to use the 2nd Gen EPYC processors in new general-purpose machines that are part of the Google Cloud Compute Engine.

Twitter has also announced that they are already using the 2nd Gen EPYC processors to reduce their datacenter TCO (total cost of ownership) by 25%.

The Workstation & Server CPU Comparison Guide Rev. 9.0

There are so many workstation and server CPU models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different models or even remember their specifications!

Therefore, we decided to compile this guide to provide an easy reference for those who are interested in comparing the specifications of the various workstation and server CPU models in the market, as well as those already obsolescent or obsolete.

Currently covering 1,243 workstation and server CPUs, this comprehensive comparison will allow you to easily compare up to 20 different specifications for each and every workstation or server CPU.

We hope it will prove to be a useful reference. We will keep this guide updated regularly so do check back for the latest updates!

To make it easy to compare the specifications, we split it up into three sections for your convenience. Just click on Split List to access them.

However, if you prefer to compare all the CPUs for each company in a single table, we also have a single list which can be accessed by clicking on Full List. Just click on the company and the type of list you prefer.

For desktop and mobile CPUs, please refer to our Desktop CPU Comparison Guide and Mobile CPU Comparison Guide.

AMD 7nm EPYC Processor Update + First Look!

One of the biggest revelations at the AMD Computex 2018 press conference is how well along AMD is with their 7nm efforts. Everything appears to be chugging along as planned, and AMD shared not only details about their 7nm EPYC processor, they also showed off an engineering sample!

 

The 7nm EPYC Revealed!

At AMD Computex 2018, Dr. Lisa Su announced that AMD has decided to introduce 7nm Zen 2 processor, in the form of the 7nm EPYC processors!

Here are the key points in Dr. Lisa Su’s presentation :

  • AMD will go straight to 7nm Zen 2 cores for the next-generation EPYC processors.
  • 7nm Zen 2 silicon are in AMD labs, and “it’s looking good!
  • AMD will be sampling 7nm EPYC processors in the second half of 2018., with a launch in 2019.
  • 7nm EPYC processors will continue to use Socket SP3, and will be “drop-in” replacements for the first-generation EPYC processors.

 

First Look At 7nm EPYC + 7nm Vega!

In this video, Dr. Lisa Su shows off engineering samples of the 7nm EPYC processor (on the left), and the 7nm Vega GPU (on the right).

 

First Examples Of 7nm EPYC Servers

AMD also showed examples of a single CPU server, and a dual CPU server, with 7nm EPYC processors.

As AMD hasn’t actually produced any 7nm EPYC thus far (sampling only starts in the second half of 2018), these are just dummy CPU mockups. The real purpose is to demonstrate that they will be pin-compatible drop-in replacements for existing EPYC servers… with a BIOS update, of course!

AMD RyzenFall, MasterKey, Fallout, Chimera Mitigation Guide

The recently-discovered RyzenFall, MasterKey, Fallout and Chimera security flaws affecting AMD’s latest processor platforms are ruining the AMD Ryzen 2 pre-launch vibes. So it’s no surprise to see AMD working hard to fix the vulnerabilities.

In this article, we will share with you the latest AMD mitigation options for the RyzenFall, MasterKey, Fallout and Chimera security vulnerabilities.

 

What’s Really Affected?

While it is accurate to say that the AMD Ryzen and AMD EPYC processors are affected by RyzenFall, MasterKey, Fallout and Chimera, these vulnerabilities do not affect the actual processor cores. Neither are they related to the Zen microarchitecture.

This makes them completely different from the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities that have been “built into” over 2,800 CPU models!

Instead, the new RyzenFall, MasterKey, Fallout and Chimera security vulnerabilities are found in:

  • the AMD Secure Processor (integrated into the new Ryzen and EPYC processors), and
  • the AMD Promontory chipsets that are paired with Ryzen and Ryzen Pro desktop processors.

The AMD Promontory chipset is used in many Socket AM4 desktop, and Socket TR4 high-end desktop (HEDT) platforms.

AMD EPYC, Ryzen Embedded, and Ryzen Mobile platforms do not use the Promontory chipset.

 

The AMD RyzenFall, MasterKey, Fallout + Chimera Mitigations

RyzenFall + Fallout

Issue : An attacker with administrative access can write to the AMD Secure Processor (PSP registers to exploit vulnerabilities in the interface between the x86 processor core and AMD Secure Processor.

Impact : The attacker can circumvent security controls to install difficult-to-detect malware in the x86 System Management Mode (SMM). The access is not persistent across reboots.

Planned Mitigations : AMD will issue AMD Secure Processor firmware patches through BIOS updates in coming weeks. No performance impact is expected.

MasterKey (PSP Privilege Escalation)

Issue : An attacker with administrative access can write malicious firmware updates, without the AMD Secure Processor (PSP) detecting the “corruption”.

Impact : The attacker can circumvent security controls to install difficult-to-detect malware. These changes are persistent, even following a system reboot.

Planned Mitigations : AMD will issue AMD Secure Processor firmware patches through BIOS updates in coming weeks. No performance impact is expected.

Chimera

Issue : An attacker with administrative access can install a malicious driver to access certain features in the AMD Promontory chipset.

Impact : The attacker can access physical memory through the Promontory chipset. The attacker can also install difficult-to-detect malware in the chipset, but this is not persistent across reboots.

Planned Mitigations : AMD will issue chipset patches through BIOS updates in coming weeks. No performance impact is expected.

Confirmed : The Threadripper Is An EPYC CPU In Disguise!

Veteran German overclocker der8auer is back at it again! This time, he set out to prove that the two non-functional dies of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU are not blanks, as some pundits have claimed. What he discovered confirms that the Threadripper is really an EPYC processor in disguise!

Don’t forget to check out our previous article on this same issue – The Secrets Of The Delidded Threadripper CPU Revealed!

 

Four Dies But Only Two Work

Thanks to the der8auer’s delidded Threadripper, we know that the Ryzen Threadripper has four AMD Ryzen (Zeppelin) dies, each with 8 Zen cores. Since the Threadripper is only designed to be a 16-core processor, two of the dies are non-functional. So why are there two extra dies?

Simple answer – easier and cheaper production. This is counter-intuitive, so let us explain.

AMD makes a 32-core server processor that uses four Zeppelin cores. Formerly known as AMD Naples, we now know it as the AMD EPYC processor.

Instead of creating a separate production line for Ryzen Threadripper, it is easier and cheaper for AMD to just pick out EPYC parts to use. After all, the EPYC and Threadripper processors both use sockets that are physically the same – SP3 and SP3r2 (TR4), with the same number of pins – 4094.

Combining their production gives them greater economies of scale. Both EPYC and Threadripper are not mass-market processors after all. It also allows them to salvage EPYC processors that don’t make the grade. This isn’t new or extraordinary – the semiconductor industry has been binning and salvaging chips for decades.

 

The Threadripper Is Really An AMD EPYC CPU

According to AMD, the non-functioning dies are really just “structural inserts” (aka blanks) used to support the integrated heat spreader (IHS), and prevent its deformation under pressure. They also revealed that the two functional dies are placed diagonally to “reduce hot spot formation“.

So der8auer set out to prove that AMD used actual Ryzen processor dies (either non-functioning or disabled), instead of blanks. After removing the four dies and sanding them down, he proved that they are all actual Ryzen (Zeppelin) dies.

The pictures above are screenshots from der8auer’s video. All credit should go to him.

As you can see, none of the dies appear to be blanks or mere structural inserts. They appear to be proper Ryzen dies that have either been disabled, or are non-functioning. You can literally see the processor cores after der8auer sanded down the dies.

In other words, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper is really an AMD EPYC CPU, with two of its processor dies disabled / non-functional.

[adrotate group=”1″]

Of course, this is merely one example. AMD could possibly produce some Threadripper processors with blanks. But as we pointed out, the Threadripper and EPYC processors are so fundamentally similar, it would make sense for AMD to just produce both in the same production line. This allows them to quickly adjust the type of processors produced according to market demand.

All partially-functioning parts will naturally be used as Threadripper CPUs, but unless AMD’s yield is extremely poor, most will be perfectly good AMD EPYC processors that merely have two of their dies disabled.

The Secrets Of The Delidded Threadripper CPU Revealed!

A few days ago, veteran German overclocker der8auer delidded* an AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor with AMD’s permission recently. The video and pictures of the delidded Threadripper revealed many interesting facts about the upcoming 16-core desktop processor. He was soon asked to remove the video, but as they say – the Internet never forgets.

In this article, we will summarise the secrets revealed by der8auer’s delidded Threadripper processor!

* Delidding a processor means removing its integrated heat spreader (IHS), to reveal the processor die(s) underneath.

Don’t forget to catch our follow-up article – Confirmed : The Threadripper Is An EPYC CPU In Disguise!

 

Four Dies But Only Two Are Functional

Although many of us assumed that Threadripper would use two AMD Ryzen (aka Zeppelin) dies, the der8aeur’s delidded Threadripper revealed four Ryzen dies underneath the heatsink!

As you know, every Zeppelin die has eight AMD Zen processor cores inside. So technically, every AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor has 32 processor cores in them.

AMD has confirmed that only two of the four Zeppelin dies in the Ryzen Threadripper is functional. The other two are permanently disabled.

 

EPYC Processor In Threadripper Clothes

The presence of four Zeppelin dies means the Ryzen Threadripper is functionally the AMD EPYC server processor, with two of its dies disabled.

Why would AMD use four processor dies when they only need two? Simple answer – easier and cheaper production. This is counter-intuitive, so let us explain.

AMD makes a 32-core server processor that uses four Zeppelin cores. Formerly known as AMD Naples, we now know it as the AMD EPYC processor.

Instead of creating a separate production line for Ryzen Threadripper, it is easier and cheaper for AMD to just pick out EPYC parts to use. After all, the EPYC and Threadripper processors both use sockets that are physically the same – SP3 and SP3r2 (TR4), with the same number of pins – 4094.

Combining their production gives them greater economies of scale. Both EPYC and Threadripper are not mass-market processors after all. It also allows them to salvage EPYC processors that don’t make the grade. This isn’t new or extraordinary – the semiconductor industry has been binning and salvaging chips for decades.

Indium Solder + Gold-Plating

AMD did not skimp on the TIM (Thermal Interface Material). In fact, they went for top-of-the-line solution – gold-plating the base of the heat spreader, and directly soldering the dies to it using an indium solder.

This is as good as it gets, ladies and gentlemen. So please don’t waste your time and kill your Ryzen Threadripper processor by delidding it!

 

Possible 32-Core Threadripper

The decision to produce the Ryzen Threadripper as a clipped version of the AMD EPYC processor means it would be very easy for AMD to release a 32-core Threadripper processor down the road.

However, we think this is quite unlikely as the market for a 32-core desktop processor will be miniscule. Even the 16-core Ryzen Threadripper will sell only in small numbers – much, much smaller than the highly-popular Ryzen 7 processors.

The AMD EPYC 7000 Series Processor Tech Report

AMD just launched the AMD EPYC 7000 series processors. Formerly known as AMD Naples, it boasts up to 32 AMD Zen processor cores, and challenges the Intel Xeon’s dominance in the datacenter. After a sneak peek at their Computex 2017 press conference, AMD finally revealed the EPYC 7000 series processors. Let’s take a look!

 

The AMD EPYC 7000 Series Processor

Like Ryzen, the EPYC processor is based on their new Zen microarchitecture. Designed for servers, the EPYC processor offers up to 32 processor cores, an integrated high-speed DDR4 memory controller and a new high-speed coherent interconnect. AMD now reveals that it also comes with an embedded security subsystem.

Here is a summary of the EPYC processor’s key features :

  • Supports up to 32 AMD Zen cores., each capable of handling 2 simultaneous threads.
  • [adrotate group=”2″]Integrated DDR4 memory controller with 8 memory channels, each supporting two DIMMs. That’s a total of 16 DIMMs per processor socket, allowing for up to 2 TB of memory. A 2-socket server will support up to 32 DIMMs, with a total memory capacity of 4 TB.
  • The EPYC processor is fully integrated with high-speed I/O including 128 PCIe 3.0 lanes.
  • Because the EPYC is a complete SoC, there is no need for a separate chipset, reducing cost and power consumption.
  • In a 2-socket system, two EPYC processors communicate with each other via the AMD Infinity Fabric coherent interconnect. Even though each EPYC processor has 128 PCIe 3.0 lanes, it is limited to 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes in a 2-socket design.  The 2P EPYC system will have a total of 128 PCI 3.0 lanes, not 256.

In addition, AMD revealed the first EPYC family of processors – the EPYC 7000 Series, with nine processors divided into four segments. They also introduced three EPYC processor variants designed for single socket servers.

AMD EPYC 7000 Series Processor Press Release

AUSTIN, Texas — June 20, 2017 — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD), and a global ecosystem of server partners, today marked a new era in the datacenter with the launch of AMD EPYC 7000 series high-performance datacenter processors. AMD was joined by multiple customers and partners at the global launch event in presenting a wide array of systems, performance demonstrations, and customer testimonials. The innovative, record-setting EPYC design, with up to 32 high-performance “Zen” cores and an unparalleled feature set, delivers greater performance than the competition across a full range of integer, floating point, memory bandwidth, and I/O benchmarks and workloads.

“With our EPYC family of processors, AMD is delivering industry-leading performance on critical enterprise, cloud, and machine intelligence workloads,” said Lisa Su, president and CEO, AMD. “EPYC processors offer uncompromising performance for single-socket systems while scaling dual-socket server performance to new heights, outperforming the competition at every price point. We are proud to bring choice and innovation back to the datacenter with the strong support of our global ecosystem partners.”

The world’s largest server manufacturers introduced products based on EPYC 7000-series processors at today’s launch, including HPE, Dell, ASUS, Gigabyte, Inventec, Lenovo, Sugon, Supermicro, Tyan, and Wistron. Primary hypervisor and server operating system providers Microsoft, Red Hat, and VMware showcased optimized support for EPYC, while key server hardware ecosystem partners Mellanox, Samsung Electronics, and Xilinx were also featured in EPYC-optimized platforms.

Cloud Datacenter and Enterprise Customers

Datacenter and cloud service providers also welcomed EPYC to the market today. Members of the “Super 7” datacenter services providers, including Baidu and Microsoft Azure, as well as 1&1, Bloomberg, Dropbox and LexisNexis, all voiced their support at launch.

Record-Setting EPYC Performance

The excitement around EPYC is driven by multiple record-setting server benchmarks achieved by EPYC-powered one-socket and two-socket systems.

AMD EPYC processors set several performance records, including:

  • Two-Socket Server
    • EPYC 7601-based system scored 2360 on SPECint_rate2006, higher than any other two-socket system score
  • One-Socket Server
    • EPYC 7601-based system scored 1200 on SPECint_rate2006, higher than any other mainstream one-socket x86-based system score
    • EPYC 7601-based system scored 943 on SPECfp_rate2006, higher than any other one-socket system score

All EPYC processors combine innovative security features, enterprise class reliability, and support a full feature-set. An EPYC 7601 CPU-based one-socket system shifts expectations for single socket server performance, helping lower total-cost-of-ownership (TCO), providing up to 20% CapEx savings compared to the Intel Xeon E5-2660 v4-based two-socket system. At every targeted price point for two-socket processors, EPYC outperforms the competition, with up to 70% more performance in the eight hundred dollar price band and up to 47% more performance at the high-end of the market of four thousand dollars or more.

EPYC Product Overview

  • A highly scalable System on Chip (SoC) design ranging from 8-core to 32-core, supporting two high-performance threads per core.
  • Industry-leading memory bandwidth across the line-up, with 8 channels of memory on every EPYC device. In a two-socket server, support for up to 32 DIMMS of DDR4 on 16 memory channels, delivering up to 4 terabytes of total memory capacity.
  • Unprecedented support for integrated, high-speed I/O with 128 lanes of PCIe 3 on every product
  • A highly-optimized cache structure for high-performance, energy efficient compute
  • AMD Infinity Fabric coherent interconnect linking EPYC CPUs in a two-socket system
  • Dedicated security hardware

The AMD Computex 2017 Press Conference Revealed!

The most important event on Day 2 of Computex Taipei 2017 was the AMD Computex 2017 Press Conference. It was headlined by AMD President & CEO Dr. Lisa Su, and Jim Anderson, SVP and GM of the AMD Computing and Graphics division.

The hour-long press conference was, as usual, packed with information and teasers. Check out what went on during the AMD Computex 2017 press conference!

 

The AMD Computex 2017 Press Conference

The atmosphere in the room was definitely more electric this year. At Computex 2016, AMD Zen (now Ryzen) and Vega may have appeared to be pipe dreams. But at this press conference, no one doubts that AMD will deliver what they promised, and then some. It was now a matter of when, not if.

The upcoming AMD Threadripper with its 16 cores is obviously targeted at the Intel X-Series processors that were just announced yesterday. Even its chipset, the X399, seemed to be intentionally named to “beat” the Intel X299 chipset.

Meanwhile, the announcement of the AMD Ryzen Mobile processors finally injects some excitement into the mobile computing market. Not just because it will offer performance closer to that of the Intel Core processors, but also because it will be the first Ryzen APU that will feature an on-die AMD Vega GPU!
