AMD EPYC 7003 CPU sets the bar for Performance Server Processor

Last week AMD announced their latest AMD EPYC 7003 Series CPUs, which includes the AMD EPYC 7763, the world’s highest-performing server processor. The new EPYC 7003 series processors help HPC, cloud and enterprise customers do more, faster, by delivering the best performance of any server CPU with up to 19% more instructions per clock.

The EPYC 7003 Series CPUs is available right now and it has up to 64 “Zen 3” cores per processor and introduce new levels of per-core cache memory, while continuing to offer the PCIe 4 connectivity and class-leading memory bandwidth that defined the EPYC 7002 series CPUs. 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors also include modern security features through AMD Infinity Guard, supporting a new feature called Secure Encrypted Virtualization-Secure Nested Paging (SEV-SNP). SEV-SNP expands the existing SEV features on EPYC processors, adding
strong memory integrity protection capabilities to help prevent malicious hypervisor-based attacks by creating an isolated execution environment. You can read more about new 3rd Gen AMD EPYC features here.

The AMD EPYC processor ecosystem is expected to grow significantly by the end of 2021 with more than 400 cloud instances using all generations of EPYC processors and 100 new server platforms using 3rd Gen EPYC processors. AMD EPYC 7003 Series processor-based solutions are available now through numerous OEMs, ODMs, cloud providers and channel partners around the world.
