AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series Processors

AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors offer incredible performance and continue to raise the bar for the modern data center. The processors are based on "Zen 3" core architecture and continue to help businesses deliver faster time-to-value[i]. EPYC™ 7003 Series processors continue to deliver the innovation and technology IT Professionals need with industry leading I/O[ii], 7nm x86 hybrid die core, and the assurance of modern security features.

No new hardware is required with the AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors, which are compatible with the AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series processors; a simple BIOS flash update will suffice[iii]. Memory performance is enhanced with the largest available x86 L3 cache, or up to 32MB per core. Added security capabilities are locked down by AMD Infinity Guard technology and a silicon embedded security subsystem, providing top tier security in the cloud and on-prem.

The new EPYC™ 7003 Series processors add to this technology with Secure Encrypted Virtualization – Secure Nested Paging (SEV-SNP), and Secure Encrypted Virtualization – Encrypted State (SEV-ES) memory for enhanced virtualization security[iv].

"AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors continue to drive a new standard for the modern data center with fantastic performance, and built-in security features to help defend against attacks to the CPU, applications and data. Building upon the highest per-core performance ever for an x86 data center processor with EPYC 7002 series processor[v], customers can now transform their data center operations to achieve better business results," said Ram Peddibhotla, corporate vice president, EPYC product management, AMD.

The AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors help customers adapt quickly to changing business computing needs.
