Nonetheless, AMD would unlikely to replace Intel's position as a dominant supplier of data center chips in the U.S. markets in a near-term outlook, since the US-based chipmaker had been controlling more than 90 percent of United States chipmaking market share. We specialize in innovative on-premise high-performance computing (HPC), bare metal HPC in the cloud, AI, and storage technologies coupled with leading-edge design, implementation, hosting, and managed services including sys-admin and storage-as-a-service, and highly rated customer support. 2nd Gen EPYC Processors Expand the AMD Data Center Customer and Partner EcosystemAt the launch event, several customers and partners joined AMD on stage to discuss new AMD EPYC processor offerings: - Google announced it has deployed 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors in its internal infrastructure production data center environment and in late 2019 will support new general-purpose machines powered by 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors on Google Cloud Compute Engine as well.

Furthermore, these new Supermicro A+ Servers offer increased data center agility and responsiveness with a comprehensive and balanced feature set of I/O, memory, and security capabilities.

AMD is the first to release 7nm processor for servers. "Using the AMD EPYC 7702 processor we can scale out our compute clusters with more cores in less space using less power, which translates to a 25% lower TCO for Twitter", said Jennifer Fraser, who serves as Twitter's Senior Director of Engineering.

The integration of the HPE silicon root of trust and the AMD Secure Processor provides for a BIOS-level double validation of the server, first by the HPE silicon root of trust as the server initializes then, again, by the AMD Secure Processor before the AMD EPYC™ starts, preventing the server from booting should the firmware be compromised in any way. The processors are expected to deliver up to 2X the performance-per socket and up to 4X peak FLOPS per-socket compared with AMD EPYC™ 7001 Series Processors.

"The launch of the AMD EPYC 7002 Series Processors will enable enterprises to transform their datacenter operations at the pace of their business", said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, Datacenter Solutions Group, AMD. A motherboard designed for "Rome" processors is required to enable all available functionality. "Their EPYC based solutions are poised to deliver a new standard for modern datacenter customers".
