AMD EPYC 7003 Series Processors (Milan)
The AMD EPYC 7003 series (Milan) server processor line has been designed for large-scale projects, database servers, large number of virtual machines, server clusters and institutions with high traffic and increased computing load. In this series, there are 19 processor models, 8-64/16-128 cores/threads. The line is made based on the innovative Zen-3, and a modern technological process in 7 nanometers.
With the new architecture, the performance gain has also increased:
- Increase in CPU energy efficiency 24%;
- 24% performance increase (when compared to the 7002 line);
- Improving the efficiency of work in multithreaded mode;
- The number of instructions executed has increased by as much as 19%;
- Bus clock increased to 2 GHz;
- The indicator of maximum write and read speed has noticeably increased;
- Latency between cache memory and cores has been reduced.
The manufacturer stated that all parameters have improved performance to a level not available to third-party manufacturers. Server processors from AMD EPYC Zen-3, 280% higher than other manufacturers.
EPYC Milan processor specifications:
- All Zen-3 models are capable of 8-channel operation with ECC-enabled DDR4 modules, and 3200MHz sticks.
- Requirements for the cooling system (TDP) from a minimum of 155 watts. In the top model EPYC 7763, the heat dissipation of the processor is 280 W.
- All Milan models use up to PCI Express 4.0
- Several units use 256 MB L3 cache.
The previously known AMD Infinity Guard is supplemented with Secure Encrypted Virtualization-Secure Nested Paging (SEV-SNP) technology - isolating the running environment, and strengthening the protection of memory and its integrity, preventing attacks.
Main CPU lineup
- 7763 – The most productive. EPYC-series processor 7003 cores/threads 64/128 rated at 2.45 GHz, and 3.5 GHz when overclocked. Maximum heat dissipation 280 W.
- 7663 – High performance. 56/112 cores/threads, 2GHz base clock, overclocked to 3.5GHz. 256 MB Cache, 240W TDP
- 7643 – Good performance. Cores/threads 48/96, base frequency 2.3 GHz, overclocked to 3.6 GHz. The model has 256 MB of cache memory, heat dissipation of 225 W.
- 7543 – Medium. Cores/threads 32/64, stable frequency 2.8 GHz, overclocked to 3.7 GHz. On board 256 MB cache, TDP 225 W.
- 7453 – Medium. With 28 cores and 56 threads, with a frequency of 2.75 GHz, and up to 3.45 GHz. 64 MB cache, and 225 W power efficiency.
- 7443 is a budget model. It has 24 cores and 48 threads, running at a frequency of 2.85 GHz, accelerates to a record 4 GHz. The processor has 128 MB L3 cache, and a moderate TDP of 200W.
- 7313 – budget. The highly demanded CPU received 16 cores and 32 threads, respectively, with a base and maximum frequency of 3/3.7 GHz. Equipped with 128 MB L3 cache and very low-heat dissipation of 155W.
The processor market turned upside down with the release of the first generation of AMD EPYC, at that time AMD became the industry leader, but the company did not stop there and continued to improve the development.
The best server processors are becoming even more powerful and quickly occupying the corporate segment.
The Milan series is another breakthrough in the server industry, high speed and computing power make them true leaders in sales.
