AMD manufacture high performance CPUs and GPUs the power some of the fastest supercomputers on the planet.

Their EPYC line of CPUs hold numerous world records for benchmarks, particularly in the areas of CFD and FEA, which is regularly borne out in real world performance as well. Their line of Instinct GPUs have been built from the ground up or computational processing making them focussed on performing the operations that users require them for.

GPU & Accelerated Servers

Instinct GPUs

 AMD have designed their Instinct MI200 accelerator cards specifically for data centre use, focussing on HPC and AI workloads in particular. They provide industry leading performance in a range of form factors, from single socket servers up to multi-chassis server clusters. Advancements in their CDNA architecture, combined with the AMD Infinity Fabric technology, mean that Instinct accelerators can help researchers discover more and wait less.

AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series Processors with 3D V-Cache™ “Milan-X” - Launched in Q1 2022

EPYC CPUs

The AMD EPYC 7002 and 7003 CPUs combine high clock speeds with the highest core counts in the industry for x86 CPUs (up to 64 cores per socket) to provide formidable processing power. High levels of L3 cache and memory bandwidth make these CPUs particularly well suited to memory bandwidth limited programmes. Available in 1 or 2 socket servers, they are also an excellent choice for storage servers where their high number of PCI lanes can handle multiple HBAs and network adapters, often supplying enough in a single socket configuration where other manufacturers might require two. Their latest generation of EPYC CPUs aimed and HPC employ a technology called 3D V-Cache which places huge amounts of L3 cache on the CPU, up to 768MB. If your application can use make judicious use of local cache these CPUs make an excellent selection.
