AMD has announced the launch of the EPYC 7003 Series CPUs, which includes the EPYC 7763, said to be the world’s highest-performing server processor.

The EPYC 7003 series processors are intended to help HPC, cloud and enterprise customers do more, quicker, and is able to deliver up to 19% more instructions per clock.

"These processors extend our data center leadership and help customers solve today’s most complex IT challenges, while substantially growing our ecosystem,” said Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager, Data Center and Embedded Solutions Business Group. “We not only double the performance over the competition in HPC, cloud and enterprise workloads with our newest server CPUs, but together with the AMD Instinct GPUs, we are breaking the exascale barrier in supercomputing and helping to tackle problems that have previously been beyond our reach."

The AMD EPYC 7003 Series Processors have 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.

Based on AMD's Infinity Architecture, these EPYC processors deliver a full feature set across the entire CPU stack. Design engineers will be able to choose the core count and frequency; while memory capabilities, advanced security features, and I/O capacity are all included at no additional cost. ,

These 3rd Gen 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.
