AMD's new EPYC 7FX2 series CPUs deliver users value and leading per-core performance
Now that AMD's EPYC lineup extends across the mainstream computing landscape, it's now time for AMD to target more niche workloads, and that where the EPYC 7Fx2 series comes into play. These processors are designed to deliver incredible levels of per-core performance, offering users up to a 500MHz boost in base frequencies and a lot more per-core cache.
With these changes, AMD has been able to create "the world's highest per-core performance x86 CPU", at least in terms of SPECrate®2017_fp_base score benchmarks. While this product is more niche than other EPYC series CPUs, AMD has confirmed that Dell, HPE, IBM Cloud, Lenovo, Microsoft, Nutanix, Supermicro and VMware are all adopting AMD's EPYC 7Fx2 processors.
Like all other 2nd Generation EPYC processors, the EPYC 7Fx2 series will ship with support for 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes, Zen 2 CPU cores and support for 8-channel DDR4 3200MHz memory configurations. Below are the core specifications of AMD's EPYC 7Fx2 series. Note that AMD's EPYC 7F52 is the most expensive, thanks to its incredible cache-to-core ratio.
