AMD 2ndGen AMD EPYC processor family with three new processors combine the balanced and efficient AMD Infinity architecture with higher speed ‘Zen 2’ cores for optimal performance on database, commercial high-performance computing (HPC) and hyper-converged infrastructure workloads. AMD EPYC 7F32 (8 cores), EPYC 7F52 (16 cores) and EPYC 7F72 (24 cores), expand 2ndGen AMD EPYC performance leadership into workloads that can leverage up to 500MHz of additional base frequency and large amounts of cache. The 7Fx2 processors boost performance capabilities for workloads in the heart of the enterprise market including database with up to 17% higher SQL Server performance compared to the competition, hyperconverged infrastructure with up to 47% higher VMmark 3.1 score (using vSAN as the storage tier in a 4-node cluster) compared to the competition for a new world record, and commercial high-performance computing (HPC) with up to 94% higher per core computational fluid dynamics individual application performance matched with the competition.
