AMD introduced two new additions to the acclaimed 4th Gen EPYC CPU portfolio, presenting the industry with processors tailored to meet the demands of today’s data centers.

Harnessing “Zen 4c” core architecture, the AMD EPYC 97X4 CPUs were designed specifically for cloud-native environments, elevating the EPYC 9004 Series performance to new heights. These processors have remarkable thread density and scalability, making them perfect for cloud-native computing.

Not stopping there, AMD also unveiled the 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors featuring the cutting-edge AMD 3D V-Cache technology, supposedly offering unparalleled performance for the most demanding technical computing workloads.

Hand in hand with Meta

Emphasizing the rapid rise of cloud-native applications designed for cloud architecture and swift deployment, the AMD EPYC 97X4 processors flaunt up to 128 cores, delivering an impressive 3.7 times greater throughput performance for key cloud-native workloads when compared to Ampere1.

Moreover, the 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors, boasting Zen 4c cores, offer customers an outstanding 2.7 times improvement in energy efficiency and support up to 3 times more containers per server, empowering the scaling of cloud-native applications like never before.

On stage, AMD welcomed Meta to share its experiences with these processors. Meta acknowledged the significant performance gains achieved with the 4th Gen AMD EPYC 97X4 processors compared to their predecessors across various workloads and substantial total cost of ownership (TCO) improvements.

Technical computing workloads beware

The 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors, enhanced by the revolutionary AMD 3D V-Cache technology, redefine the boundaries of technical computing.

With up to 96 Zen 4 cores and an industry-leading 1GB+ of L3 cache, these processors establish themselves as the finest x86 CPUs for technical computing workloads, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD), finite element analysis (FEA), electronic design automation (EDA), and structural analysis.

At the Data Center and AI Technology Premiere, Microsoft took the opportunity to announce the general availability of Azure HBv4 and HX instances, powered by the formidable 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors with AMD 3D V-Cache.
