AMD is enjoying huge success not only on the client-side of processors but also on the server space, actually, AMD has seen more growth in the data-centre market more than ever! It really set a new standard with its Zen 2 based EPYC Rome processors and now Zen 3 based EPYC Milan is rocking the market.
To secure more clients AMD is prepared to attract heavy customers like Facebook who recently confirmed their new Metaverse, which will be powered by AMD. Now, recently they announced the new EPYC Milan-X chips based on improved Zen 3 architecture along with 3D V-cache stacking technology.
So, at the Supercomputing Conference 2021 (SC21), AMD showcased its expanded presence and growing preference in the high performance computing (HPC) industry. As AMD states: “Customers across the industry continue to expand their use of AMD EPYC™ processors and AMD Instinct™ accelerators to power cutting-edge research needed to address some of the world’s biggest challenges in climate, life sciences, medicine, and more.”
The most intriguing part of the story is that in the latest Top500 list we see AMD now powers 73 supercomputers, compared to 21 in the November 2020 list, a more than 3x year-over-year increase. The best part about AMD’s innovation is that four out of the top ten most powerful supercomputers in the world is powered by AMD, as well as the most powerful supercomputer in EMEA.
Finally, AMD EPYC 7003 series processors, which launched eight months ago, are utilized by 17 of the 73 AMD powered supercomputers in the list, demonstrating the rapid adoption of the latest generation of EPYC processors.
“The demands of supercomputing users have increased exponentially as the world seeks to accelerate research, reducing the time to discovery of valuable information,” said Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager, Data Center and Embedded Solutions Business Group, AMD.
“With AMD EPYC CPUs and Instinct accelerators, we continue to evolve our product offering to push the boundaries of data center technologies enabling faster research, better outcomes and more impact on the world.”
If you thought this is the end, it’s not over as AMD has also been recognized in the annual HPCwire Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards at SC21. The company won ten awards including Best Sustainability Innovation in HPC, Best HPC Server Product and the Outstanding Leadership in HPC award presented to President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su.
