Rome Is Coming For The Data Center

AMD has entered the next stage of its fight to win data center market share from Intel with its second-generation EPYC processors — and it has a large roster of ecosystem partners to help.

The Santa Clara, Calif.-based chipmaker announced the launch of its new EPYC Rome processors at a San Francisco event at the beginning of the month, claiming the new chips beat Intel's Xeon Scalable processors not just in performance but price as well.

"We are almost double [Intel's] performance. That's what we call changing the game" AMD CEO Lisa Su said at the event, calling second-generation EPYC "the highest performing x86 processor in the world."
