The AMD EPYC 9004 Series Processors are the latest and most powerful processors for HPC, AI, cloud, big data, and general enterprise IT. Brands like GIGABYTE make some of the best enterprise solutions, and just recently, they announced a wide range of enterprise solutions that come with the latest AMD EPYC 9004 Series Processors.
There are the new M-Series, R-Series, G-Series, H-Series, and E-Series. All of the solutions have different capabilities and different use cases. So let’s explore them and see what these new innovations are all about.
New GIGABYTE Enterprise Solutions
Here are all the new enterprise solutions from GIGABYTE:
- First, we have the M-Series Motherboards, and they are available in both single and dual sockets. These robust motherboards support Gen4 NVMe drives and PCIe 4.0 and/or 5.0 lanes.
- Then there are the R-Series Rackmount Servers and which are 1U and 2U general-purpose systems. These servers strike the perfect balance between computation, storage, expandability, and memory.
- Next up, we have the G-Series GPU Servers, which are 2U or 4U systems. These servers have great GPU density because of their remarkable thermal and mechanical design. These servers are aimed at enterprises requiring HPC, AI, and high-performance parallel processing.
- Then there are the H-Series High-density 2U 4-node Servers. These servers have a remarkable feature as they have four hot-swappable nodes in a 2U chassis. So enterprises can get next-level CPU density. These servers are aimed at industries requiring HPC, HCI, and edge computing.
- Finally, we have the E-Series Edge Servers, which are 1U and 2U short-depth services. These have IP options on both the front and back, so they are suitable for data collection and also for improving latency.
Key Features of New AMD EPYC 9004 Series Processors
The new AMD EPYC processors unlock some advanced capabilities for servers, and here are all of the key features of these new processors:
- These are based on the 5nm process
- They can have up to 96 cores and 192 threads
- They have a maximum boost clock of up to 4.4GHz
- The L3 cache can be up to 384MB
- They support 12-channel DDR5-4800
- The ISA updates include BFLOAT16, AVX-512, and VNNI
- They support PCIe Gen 5, 160 lanes in 2P
- They support CXCL 1.1+ in 64 IO lanes, with bifurcations
- They can have up to 4 links of Gen3 AMD Infinity Fabric (up to 32Gbps)
More About the New GIGABYTE Enterprise Solutions
The M-Series Motherboards
To support the latest AMD EPYC processors, these motherboards can support all the new generations of powerful AMD EPYC processors, all new GIGABYTE server 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors from 16 to 96 cores. The GPUs use PCIe 4.0, so these motherboards have good cost-to-performance.
R-Series Rackmount Servers
The R-Series Rockmount servers are suitable for storage as they take the conventional balanced configuration. They support 2.5” or 3.5” drives, and the R263-Z33 and R283-Z93 servers have support for two dual-slot GPUs. The number of sockets is also different on these servers; they are great for general-purpose use cases.
G-Series GPU Servers
Enterprises requiring next-level parallel processing for AI or other workflows can totally take advantage of the G-Series servers. These servers have excellent GPU computing performance. There is the 2U G293 server which has a dual-socket system. It can support eight GPUs (PCIe 4.0 x16 or PCIe 5.0 x8). They also provide excellent efficiency.
H-Series High-density 2U 4-node Servers
These are multi-node servers that are ideal for HPC and HCI. These servers have the best balance between computing, performance, and storage. These servers are also ideal for enterprises looking for high CPU density.
E-Series Edge Servers
The E-Series Edge servers take a different approach as they take a minimal footprint. These servers can sit at the network edge to reduce latency. They are also suitable for data collection far away from the servers.
