TYAN Launches AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Server Platforms - Systems

The company had also announced that it has landed Google and Twitter as its customers with its new EPYC server chips. This is the second generation of its server chips that are designed for high-performance operations in the cloud or in large enterprises. "Its scalable compute, memory and I/O performance will expand our ability to drive innovation forward in our infrastructure and will give Google Cloud customers the flexibility to choose the best VM for their workloads". AMD EPYC 7742 SPECrate®2017_int_base projected score of 625 vs. EPYC 7601 of 304 in June 2019 at http://spec.org/cpu2017/results/res2019q2/cpu2017-20190411-11817.pdf.

Last night, AMD officially launched its second-generation EPYC 7002 processors for the enterprise market (you can read our deep dive here).

GIGABYTE's AMD EPYC H-Series 2U 4 Node Server Systems have already gained widespread praise and customer approval worldwide, and are the systems of choice for several global HPC system providers. Why? - VMware and AMD announced a close collaboration to deliver support for new security and other features of the high-performance 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors within VMware vSphere. "Through close collaboration with AMD, we are addressing the demands of traditional, virtualized, hybrid and multi-cloud workloads with a broad portfolio of PowerEdge servers, including newly designed servers optimized for 2nd Generation AMD EPYC processors". However, in a report released in May, Spiceworks found that while 93% of organizations use Intel-base servers, 16% also used systems powered by AMD. GIGABYTE's new systems will provide customers with incredible compute, I/O and bandwidth capability - created to meet the huge demand for more compute in big data analytics, HPC and cloud computing. This server delivers the highest performance and lowest performance per dollar for a 10TB database with 64% higher QphDS throughput (Composite Query per Hour Metric) and $0.05 savings per QphDS over the previous world record holders.

Apparently, customers can augment their data center return on investment by leveraging the 2 Gen AMD EPYC™ processors' support of PCI Express 4.0, advanced structures, and four times peak FLOPS per-socket functioning over the AMD EPYC 7001 series processors.

Equinox is not the only business connected to The Related Companies which has been impacted by the announcement of the fundraiser. Celebrities including model Chrissy Teigen and comedian Billy Eichner have called for boycotts of Ross' fitness centers.


For HPC, 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors offer an unmatched combination of record-setting floating point performance and the most DRAM memory and I/O bandwidth in its class to supercharge HPC workloads, including up to 2x better performance in computational fluid dynamics and up to 72 percent higher performance structural analysis. The company in the mid-2000s had more than 20% of the market on the strength of its Opteron chips, but a series of missteps with later generations of Opteron by AMD and Intel's aggressive product rollouts tipped the scales back in favor of the larger competitor.

But AMD has been making inroads with its most recent chips. In the resulting past two years, GIGABYTE has released a total of 18 general availability 1st Gen EPYC server systems and motherboards, and together with our channel partners has delivered major deployments of these systems to cloud, web and HPC customers, helping them to realize the huge value offering and performance benefits of AMD EPYC in their data centers.

The AMD EPYC ecosystem continues to grow with more than 60 partners supporting the launch on day one.

The 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processor-based systems are available now from the AMD EPYC ecosystem partners.
