AMD Zen server platform detailed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

AMD's Zen server side of things, called Naples has been detailed. AMD has planned to launch 2 of them, in 1U or 2U configurations. The 1U system supports up to 32 NVMe drive, 4 gpus, and has dual Infiniband EDR interconnect to communicate between the storage and server. The 2U one, supports  6 discrete graphic cards, up to 26 NVMe drives, and has a single Infiniband EDR interconnect. AMD Naples will have up to 128 PCIe gen 3 lanes and 8 channel DDR4 memory architecture. The cpu itself will have up to 32 cores and 64 threads with a tdp of 35-180w.

the new ones are full cpu's and can run any x86_64 code, they just also have a ton of new avx instructions for compute.

But aren't they just juiced up atom cores?

As a wise man once said, if you think I'm wrong and have facts to back it up with (not opinions) then I'll happily accept that you're correct. Remember, the facts has to be valid and comes from a "noteworthy" source.

As another wise man once said, if you don't have anything to say then please don't say anything unless you like a big fat sausage in your buns...

As a third wise man once said, tickle other's like how you want to be...oh wait, treat I mean, not tickle...whoops :P

32 cores, that's better than anything Intel has to offer. Intel has a 24 core Xeon E7 8890 v4 for 7000$+. 

Xeon Phi is 72 core.

I wonder if there will be any enthusiast hardware that borrows from this...

I'm not too sure about Zen desktop stuff since we got some information on the platform, looks like it has only marginally more connectivity than Z97/Z170.

If you are ever looking into getting one, the older ones are actually relatively cheap on eBay.

this one is 60 core 1.05ghz for only $575

and probably costs 2-3x of a Naples system

People who need many cores always have many moneys.

128 lanes. One hundred and twenty eight lanes. Both Xeon Phi 7290 and E7 8890V4 have 36 and 32, respectively. What the actual hell is this magic?

People are always defending Intel and saying: "Yeah, Intel mainly focuses on servers and stuff". Yeah, I can see that.


The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.
