2. AMD Provides Updates On 7nm EPYC CPUs

Outside of announcements focusing on processors and GPUs for the client PC markets, AMD delivered new disclosures around its family of EPYC processors for the data center.

First, AMD CEO Lisa Su performed a test comparing the upcoming 7-nanometer, second-generation EPYC processor (code-named "Rome") to Intel's Xeon Platinum 8280, a 28-core CPU that is part of the second-generation Xeon Scalable family. Using the NAMD Apo1 v2.12 benchmark test, AMD demonstrated that the EPYC CPU outperformed the Xeon CPU by more than a factor of two.

The company then brought Microsoft on stage to reveal that its Azure cloud service achieved a new level of performance in computational fluid dynamics that was previously unobtainable using its Azure HB cloud instance that runs on AMD's first-generation EPYC processors.

“HB-series VMs on Azure are a game changer for HPC in the cloud. For the first time, HPC customers can scale their MPI workloads to tens of thousands of cores with the agility of the cloud and performance and economics that rival on-premise cluster," Navneet Joneja, head of product for Azure Virtual Machines at Microsoft, said in a statement.
