AMD EPYC™ server processors are designed to help your data-center customers get their workloads done faster and with fewer computing resources.

AMD EPYC server processors offer a consistent set of features across a range of choices from 8 to 96 cores. This balanced set of resources found in AMD EPYC processors lets your customers right-size server configurations to fit their workloads.

What’s more, these AMD CPUs include models that offer high per-core performance optimized for frequency-sensitive and single-threaded workloads. This can help reduce the TCO for core-based software licenses.

AMD introduced the 4th Generation AMD EPYC processors in late 2022. The first of this generation are the AMD EPYC 9004 series CPUs. They’ve been designed to support performance and efficiency, help keep data secure, and use the latest industry features and architectures.

AMD continues to ship and support the previous 3rd Generation AMD EPYC 7002 and 7003 series processors. These processors power servers that are now available from a long list of leading hardware suppliers, including Supermicro.


Good as all that may sound, you and your customers still need hard evidence that AMD processors can truly speed up their enterprise applications. Well, a new independent test of AMD-based Supermicro servers has provided just that.

The test was performed by the Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA), an IT standardization association based in Seongnam, South Korea. The TTA tested several Supermicro database and web servers powered by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC 7343 processors.

The results: The Supermicro servers set a world record for performance by a non-cluster system of 507,802 transactions per minute (tpmC).

That test was conducted using the TPC Benchmark, which measures a server’s online transaction processing (OLTP) performance. The tpmC metric measures how many new-order transactions a system can generate in a minute while executing business transactions under specific response-time requirements.

What’s more, when compared with servers based on the previous 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors, the newer Supermicro servers were 33% faster, as shown in the chart below:

All that leads the TTA to conclude that Supermicro servers powered by the latest AMD processors “empower organizations to create deployments that deliver data insights faster than ever before.”
