AMD EPYC are the latest range of high-performance single or dual socket CPUs from AMD. They replace the aging AMD Opteron range which had a lifespan of over 10 years.
The latest AMD EPYC CPUs are game-changers and an excellent contender against Intel in price per performance. Their industry leading high core count means they are perfect for core intensive CPU tasks, such as rendering or CPU-based computational processing. They are also ideal for virtualisation.
EPYC's design benefits are clear: greater numbers of high-performance devices in each server means more IOPS. 128 PCIe lanes and 8 memory channels per socket enable you to create large scale IOPS-focused storage solutions in compact enclosures.
We've created an extensive range of configurable AMD EPYC based systems from the market leading brands including Supermicro and ASUS.
