AMD Takes Aim At Xeon

AMD has taken the wraps off the first generation of its Zen-based Epyc server processors, as it aims to take market share from Intel in the datacentre business.

The company claims its 32-core chip offers 47 percent higher performance than Intel’s Xeon.

The lowest-specification offering is the Epyc 7251, which sports eight cores, supporting 16 simultaneous threads, and has a base frequency of 2.1GHz, topping out at 2.9GHz at maximum boost.

AMD claims that each Zen core is about 52 percent faster than the previous generation, and boasts that the chips are more competitive in integer, floating point, memory bandwidth, and I/O benchmarks and workloads.
