Workload Performance Leadership

Powering solutions in the Cloud, on-prem or off-prem, in containers, or VMs. Whether on bare metal or HCI, AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series provides outstanding performance across the wide spectrum of industry standard applications.

As the leader in high-performance computing, AMD continues to raise the bar for data center computing delivering on its continuous roadmap execution and commitment to innovation.


The Secret is Under the Hood

Built on the "Zen 3" core and AMD Infinity Architecture, the new AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors provide a full feature set across the stack with industry leading I/O, 7nm x86 CPU technology, and an integrated security processor on die.  EPYC™ 7003 CPUs provide up to 32MB of L3 cache per core, 4-6-8 memory channel interleaving designed for better economies and performance in multiple DIMM configurations, plus synchronized clocks between fabric and memory, all driving better, faster time to results.

Capture the Full Benefits of your IT Investments

From traditional application deployment to the latest innovations, with AMD EPYC™ 7003 processors you have the system resources and capacity your applications require. We’re constantly increasing our software optimization footprint to help ensure applications leverage all the innovations of AMD EPYC™ processors.

For example, as of January 2021, there are over 132 AMD EPYC™ powered VMware® certified platforms. The broad ecosystem and support for open tools and libraries are more reasons why top cloud providers are choosing AMD. Delivering the results you need, when you need them, AMD EPYC™ powered servers help you capitalize on business impact quickly across your enterprise – no matter how, where, or when your applications run.






The Most Important Element Inside Our Processors is Your Data

In a world full of complexity, you need to help your workloads be more secure, from processes all the way to your data. Built into the silicon, AMD Infinity Guard is a suite of advanced security features designed to defend against internal and external threats attacking your data and decrease potential attack surfaces as software is booted, executed, and processes your critical data.  Featuring AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization technologies strengthened with Secure Nested Paging, AMD is helping power breakthrough data security advancements, such as confidential computing.

EPYC™ by the Numbers

AMD EPYC™ has been engineered for data centers that rely on CPU performance and throughput. From hyper converged infrastructure, to database, to big data analytics to high performance computing, workloads have more cores to work with. AMD EPYC™ 7003 series scale from 8 to 64 cores (or 16 to 128 threads per socket). No other x86 server processor achieves this level of core density.

With AMD EPYC™ 7003, you get superior workload performance to deliver the resources your applications require.


Backed by industry leaders

AMD collaborates with major infrastructure and software vendors as well as the open-source community  to help ensure your applications and solutions are optimized to work exceptionally well with EPYC™ powered servers.

Simply put, AMD EPYC™ Processors run virtually all x86 applications, enable worry free migration, and seamless integration into existing x86 infrastructures.  Whether you are seeking virtualization, containerization, hybrid cloud, or software-defined infrastructure opportunities for your data center there is an AMD EPYC™ powered solution to meet your needs.

Technology You Can Bank On

AMD has been unstoppable delivering leadership products generation after generation attesting our devotion to data center customers.

We know consistency is critical for our customers which is why we’re committed to a reliable and executable roadmap. At AMD we believe in investing resources to establish long-term partnerships that are beneficial for customers, businesses, and the community.
