AMD EPYC 7002 Top And Bottom Covers

At STH, we now have dozens of reviews for the AMD EPYC family of processors and the platforms they power. With all of the excitement we have seen on STH around the AMD EPYC 7002 series, we wanted to put all of the content in one place that our readers can quickly search through. e3-1280 v2

AMD EPYC 7002 Series Delivers a Knockout

The AMD EPYC 7002 series, formerly called “Rome” has generated an enormous amount of industry buzz. If the first generation EPYC, the 7001 or “Naples” put AMD in a close race with Intel, the AMD EPYC 7002 generation catapulted AMD to higher core counts, higher performance, more memory bandwidth, and more I/O throughput than Intel has in the market. Most impressive is that AMD did this while lowering prices for customers who have been squeezed by Intel pricing practices for the past decade. We called it a “knockout” and you can read our in-depth analysis of performance and the market impact here:

AMD EPYC 7002 CPU Reviews on STH

In this generation, AMD has five single-socket only parts. These “P” series parts are special because they leverage the platform’s unique I/O capabilities to deliver industry-leading single-socket performance equivalent to Intel’s dual-socket Xeon performance. What is more, AMD is incentivizing the single socket market with aggressive pricing on these SKUs:

Beyond the single socket parts, the AMD EPYC 7002 series has traditional dual-socket capable parts that scale from 8 cores in a server to 128 cores and 256 threads in a server.

STH has also looked at frequency optimized SKUs designed to maximize performance per core.

AMD EPYC Platform Reviews on STH

AMD promised that its first-generation platforms would be compatible with the second-generation AMD EPYC 7002 series if vendors support it. AMD’s partners also have updates for the new Rome platforms.
