AMD’s new EPYC (Naples) 7000 series processors, can meet or exceed the computing power you need for a lower cost, with high core clock, high counts and low wattage power draws, AMD EPYC processors offer a competitive edge when it comes to performance. Based on AMD testing of the 7000 series, when compared to last generations 6300 series processors, offer up to a 37% performance uplift and support 2666MHz of DDR4 RAM and PCI-e 3.0. Plus. For high core count CPUs and high memory count for a lower price, consider going with an AMD solution from Aspen Systems.
Bringing hardware innovation back to the datacenter
The AMD EPYC system-on-chip delivers real innovation to better address the needs of existing and emerging data center workloads. With industry leading Core Count, Memory Bandwidth and unprecedented I/O, EPYC sets a new standard of performance, scalability and balance for the modern Datacenter.

AMD spent five years to develop and release their new server processors. The new EPYC processor, based on the Zen architecture, has a set of new features as compared to its predecessor, the Opteron. Here are some of the new key features:
|Cores||8-32 cores / 16-64 threads||1-16 cores/threads|
|Clock rate (Base)||2.0GHz – 2.4GHz||1.4GHz – 3.3GHz|
|Clock rate (Turbo/Boost)||Up to 3.2GHz||Up to 3.8GHz|
|Cache (L2)||8MB||Up to 16MB|
|Cache (L3)||32 – 64MB per die||Up to 2 x 8MB per die|
|Memory Channels||Eight at 2400-2666MHz DDR4||Four at 1333-1600Mhz DDR3|
|DIMMs per channel||Up to 2||Up to 3|
|TDP||Up to 170W||UP to 140W|
|Multi-processing||Up to 1 or 2||Up to 4|
|CPU Interconnect||Infinity Fabric||HyperTransport|
While these features are an improvement, there are some features that we long for in the Opteron processors such as being able to use them on a multi-processor (MP, or 4+ CPU) board, and a higher clock rate. The greatest improvements are the L3 cache, the memory bandwidth, having twice as many memory channels, and the Infinity Fabric. It’s easy to look at a table like the one above and say that two generations of CPUs look rather comparable. The biggest test is how the new EPYC systems run your applications.
