In this video from SC17, Josh Mora describes how the new AMD EPYC Processors deliver huge memory bandwidth and application performance for HPC.

“EPYC strikes the perfect balance of cores/threads, memory, I/O bandwidth and security to deliver excellent performance for many High Performance Computing (HPC) workloads. AMD’s state-of-the-art GPUs combined with EPYC provide excellent solutions for your most demanding HPC applications.”

Many IT organizations purchase 2-socket servers and only populate 1-socket. Others purchase 2-socket servers, not because they need the compute capability, but because they need more I/O and/or memory capacity than what is available on current single-socket servers. AMD EPYC enables no-compromise 1-socket servers with up to 32 cores, 8 memory channels and 128 PCIe 3.0 lanes enabling capabilities and performance previously available only in 2-socket architectures.
