10 Servers Now Using AMD’s New EPYC With 3-D V-Cache
Milan-X is based on AMD’s EPYC 3 platform and is the company’s first server processor to use vertically stacked static RAM directly on top of the processor die. This strategy allows AMD to pack 768 MB of level-three (L3) cache into its CPUs.
“Building upon our momentum in the data center as well as our history of industry firsts, third-gen AMD EPYC processors with AMD 3-D V-Cache technology showcase our leadership design and packaging technology enabling us to offer the industry’s first workload-tailored server processor with 3-D die stacking technology,” said Dan McNamara, senior vice president and general manager of AMD’s Server Business Unit, in a statement.
AMD’s new EPYC processor capabilities enable customers to deploy fewer servers and reduce power consumption in the data center to help lower total cost of ownership and reduce carbon footprint.
AMD Milan-X is available in 16-, 32- and 64-core SKUs as a drop-in replacement for existing server platforms as well as for OEM partners like Dell Technologies, Cisco Systems and Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company said its new processors with AMD 3-D V-Cache technology offer breakthrough performance for mission-critical technical computing workloads, leading to better-
designed products and faster time to market. The 3-D V-Cache bonds the AMD Zen23 core to the cache module, increasing the among of L3 while minimizing latency and increasing throughout.
AMD’s new processors with 3-D V-Cache technology feature the industry’s largest L3 cache, providing the same socket, software and compatibility and security features as third-gen EPYC CPUs, while at the same time offering top performance for computing workloads such as finite element analysis (FEA), electronic design automation (EDA), computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and structural analysis.
