AMD announced a new trio of 2nd-Generation EPYC processors designed to deliver optimal performance for Database, Commercial High-Performance Computing (HPC), as well as in Hyperconverged Workloads.

AMD EPYC ProcessorsThe three new processors, EPYC 7F32 (8 Cores), EPYC 7F52 (16 Cores), and EPYC 7F72 (24 Cores) all combine the AMD Infinity Architecture with higher speed Zen 2 cores.

These are able to leverage up to 500MHz of additional base frequency and large amounts of cache, which gives AMD EPYC the world’s highest per-core performance x86 service CPU.
