AMD officially presented the EPYC Rome processors. These new processors are based on Zen2 @ 7nm and promise to improve a lot. The first thing is that it doubles the number of cores with respect to the first generation of EPYC and also increases the IPC. They also allow AMD, after many years, to lead the market for server processors.

AMD released Rome EPYC of Zen2 architecture @ 7nm​ 

Intel is still launching 14nm Xeon and it won't be until the first mita of 2020 when the first 10nm Xeon arrive. Until then, AMD offers companies better processors in terms of performance, consumption and, logically, price. You can get many more cores for much less cost with a strong impact on performance.

AMD has officially presented the EPYC Rome

The top of the range processor is the AMD EPYC 7742, which has 64 cores and 128 processing threads. This processor works at a base frequency of 2.25MHz and reaches 3.4GHz in Boost mode. It has this processor of 256MB of cache L3 and a TDP of 225W. The most interesting thing is its price, 6 950 dollars, much less than its most direct competitor, the Intel Xeon Platinum 8280M. The Intel processor has 28 cores and 56 threads working at 2.7GHz and reaching 4.0GHz. It has a TDP of 205W and a price of 13 000 dollars.

Since AMD wanted to make it clear that currently have the most powerful x86 processor in the world. The interesting thing is that despite the EPYC 7742 have more than twice as many cores as Intel, is 'only' 97% more powerful. An interesting fact, because it suggests that Zen2 is very, but very well, but it still lacks a little point.

Regarding the rest of possibilities, this processor supports up to 8TB of DDR4 ECC @ 3200MHz. It has support for 128 PCIe lines, while Intel's most powerful Xeon only supports 40 PCIe 3.0 lines. AMD wanted to save problems and integrated a co-processor to increase data security and cryptography.

Price processors AMD EPYC Rome

TechPowerUp has published the price of these processors based on their sources. We must keep in mind that the price is unitary, but for lots of 1 000 units. Yes, for us to stay in these prices we must buy 1 000 of these brutal processors.
