Solving Your Most Demanding Business Needs Today with the new AMD EPYC™ 3rd Gen CPUs

AMD recently announced the release of the third iteration of AMD EPYC™   CPUs, touted as “the world’s highest performing server processor” by AMD. Milan hit the market as a replacement for the Rome processor family on March 15th, 2021. Achieving top marks in performance and security, Milan is changing the game for those looking for high-powered processors for their HPC and AI servers.

Notable Characteristics of AMD EPYC Milan CPUs:

  • Scaling from 8 to 128 cores
  • Up to 16 double-precision FLOPS per cycle per core
  • All new “Zen3” cores delivering up to 19% IPC uplift
  • Up to 32MB of L3 cache per core, up to 256MG L3 cache per CPU
  • New AMD Infinity Guard powering confidential computing
  • 4-6-8 memory channel interleaving offering more configuration flexibility
  • Support for PCI-Express generation 4.0 (2x the throughput of gen 3.0)
  • 128 lanes of PCI-Express 4.0 per CPU socket

The latest generation of AMD EPYC CPUs offer excellent performance, like many of AMD CPU generations in the past. Most models in Milan offer at least 1 TFLOPS, with the 64-core CPUs providing 2+ TFLOPS. Lower-performing models might provide fewer CPU cores and L3 cache memory, while models on the higher end of performance offer higher core counts.

What AMD 3rd Gen CPUs Mean for Industry Applications

Weather Modeling
These new AMD EPYC processors offer significant improvements for meteorologists. The key is this solution provides weather modeling systems with higher core counts combined with higher speed processors that allow more models to be run in a given period of time, which is critical for the accurate and timely weather modeling.  The ability to answer questions surrounding wind speed and direction has the potential to impact designated fire risk zones or how organizations should reposition their assets to avoid flooding disasters. The increased processing capabilities of these third series of AMD EPYC series processors have the power to help organizations save lives and protect property. Our current projects are supporting meteorologists leveraging the AMD-based PowerWulf ZXR1+ HPC Cluster, which will have a profound impact on individuals and companies alike.

Life Sciences
Life Science professionals working with bioinformatics or genomics, or any other type of life science research, are always concerned on how many cores they can get in their HPC system. With the new AMD EPYC processors, life science researchers are now able to pack more processing cores into their high performance computing environments at a very competitive cost per core. With the amount of focus being put on virology research due to COVID-19, these third generation AMD EPYC processors stand to play as significant of a role as the researchers themselves. Being able to deliver solutions with enough processing cores to handle an ever-increasing amount of data means faster time-to-answers, benefitting us all going forward.

Design & Engineering
The ability of engineers to throw significantly more and significantly faster processor cores at their design and engineering models and simulations ultimately is what allows for finer mesh models and more models overall. The new AMD EPYC Milan CPUs offer two additional performance enhancements that will significantly improve design and engineering workloads — faster memory access speeds with more memory channels and PCI Express 4.0 buses. Both of these features offer faster access of data to and from processor cores, which is critical when dealing with low latency applications from companies like Metacomp Technologies, Star CCM and Ansys.
