In fact, today alone, the stock is up $4.50 on news that Google and Twitter are using the company's newest data center processors. "Its scalable compute, memory and I/O performance will expand out ability to drive innovation forward in our infrastructure and will give Google Cloud customers the flexibility to choose the best VM for their workloads", stated Bart Sano, Google vice president of engineering, in a press statement. Moreover, Dell and Lenovo will be releasing 2nd gen EPYC powered servers, with the latter already having released the ThinkSystem SR655 and SR635.

Projections as of July 3, 2019 for AMD EPYC processors using computer modeling of preproduction parts and SPECrate®2017_int_base internal testing results.

GIGABYTE has now built on our extensive experience and expertise with the 1st Gen EPYC and is ready to deliver the next generation of AMD EPYC to our customers, with a total of 28 2nd Gen AMD EPYC Processor systems planned for general availability release by the end of 2019 - nearly double the number platforms GIGABYTE has released for the first generation. Lenovo announced two new one-socket ThinkSystem servers - the SR635 and SR655 - that leverage features in the new Epyc chips like support for PCIe Gen 4.0 interconnect and expanded security capabilities and are created to drive down hardware and licensing costs. The 2nd Gen EPYC also features faster DDR4 channels allowing memory modules of up to 3200MHz to be used.

The integration of the HPE silicon root of trust and the AMD Secure Processor provides for a BIOS-level double validation of the server, first by the HPE silicon root of trust as the server initializes then, again, by the AMD Secure Processor before the AMD EPYC™ starts, preventing the server from booting should the firmware be compromised in any way. "Through close collaboration with AMD, we are addressing the demands of traditional, virtualized, hybrid and multi-cloud workloads with a broad portfolio of PowerEdge servers, including newly designed servers optimized for 2nd Generation AMD EPYC processors". And, Intel also counts Twitter and Google among its customers.

The AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Processors set a new standard for the modern data center with breakthrough CPU performance. "What you can expect from us is consistency". Designed for Modern Workloads: Enterprise, Cloud and HPCSecond Gen AMD EPYC processors are specifically designed for modern data center workloads, providing customers an ideal combination of features to help unlock performance and redefine economics in virtualization, cloud, HPC and enterprise applications.

"EPYC 7742 is cheaper and has better performance than Intel's Xeon Platinum." said AMD.

According to HPE, it is now the world's most power efficient two-processor server, driving energy consumption down 28% compared to the previous industry leader.

But AMD has been making inroads with its most recent chips. "With twice the cores, breakthrough performance and embedded security features, all delivered by a leadership architecture, customers can transform their datacenter operations at the pace of their business".

The AMD EPYC ecosystem continues to grow with more than 60 partners supporting the launch on day one.

The Epyc CPUs are also being put to work by the Air Force Weather Agency, which will use them in a Cray Shasta system to provide weather data to the US Air Force and Army; oo-rah.

The 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processor-based systems are available now from the AMD EPYC ecosystem partners.
