EPYC is AMD’s reborn Opteron, a product designed to finally challenge Intel in servers. These brand new enterprise chips are built on the same 14nm FinFET manufacturing process that Ryzen processors are built on and are based on the very same Zen microarchitecture. With “EPYC” AMD states that it offers 45% more cores, 122% more bandwidth and 60% greater I/O bandwidth versus the competition. The robust feature set, in combination with Zen’s incredible power efficiency, make for a very potent server product.
