AMD EPYC processors are a new family of units with diverse performance but with the same set of features. Chips with 8,16,24 and 32 cores are available. Each of them is a full SoC system – ie “System on Chip” combining not only a computing unit, but also an 8-channel memory controller, I/O controller supporting 128 PCIe lines or elements related to hardware information security mechanisms. 8 and 16-core systems are dedicated for environments where for licensing reasons lower number of cores is required, 16 and 24-core for general purpose servers and 32-core for database servers, HPC and associated with virtualization (Cloud, VDI, etc.). There are attractive, affordable models dedicated to 1-processor platforms only (marked with the letter “P” at the model name).
