AMD has surprised us by pawing a way to a field in embedded applications and that’s why creating new Epyc family generation to enter server market. Let me describe 8 core processor: comes with up to 16 cores of Zen x86. Maximum of 32MB of shared Cache. Frequency boosts till 3.1 GHz. Great, maximum 4 independent storage channels are available. Maximum 64 PCle Gen3 lanes are also inside. Highly integrated I/O is up to 8x10GbE. Sata or NVME can fit maximum 16. Integrated SoC without chipset. Dedicated security system, hardware root of trust and memory encryption are the most important features.
Lower core processors vary in features.
Is Embedded Epyc Viable For Long Term Strategy?
The server market is still small while major corporations starting an implementation of cloud computing, artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to advance in the dynamic 21st century. Dramatic expansion of server based information centers triggered AMD to offer embedded series of CPUs which is the best strategy for it in the long term strategy.
Slowly, but steady long term growth in server market will benefit AMD to add more muscles in competitiveness.
