AMD will soon release info on their upcoming server processor, codenamed “Naples”. The new AMD Naples server processor features up to 32 cores.

The new Naples processors 32-core can handle 64 threads with 8 channel memory. That memory can run 2400/2677 MHz per channel. Also, you can upgrade up to 4 TB of DDR4 memory. The new AMD server processor offers better performance on critical parameters, with 45% more cores1, 60% more input/output capacity (I/O)2, and 122% more memory bandwidth3.

Matt Eastwood, senior vice president, Enterprise Infrastructure, and Datacenter, IDC said, “It is exciting to see AMD back in the server conversation with a new CPU and a sound strategy for why it is the right processor for the modern datacenter and the cloud computing era. Looking at the product details announced today, it sounds like a compelling combination that will give IT buyers a unique new option to consider when making their next upgrade.

AMD Naples Server Processor features:

  • 32-core System on Chip (SoC) design, with 64 threads support.
  • Industry-leading memory bandwidth, with 8-channels of memory per “Naples” device. In a 2-socket server, support for up to 32 DIMMS of DDR4 on 16 memory channels, delivering up to 4 terabytes of total memory capacity.
  • The processor is a complete SoC with high-speed I/O supporting 128 lanes of PCIe 34.
  • A highly-optimized cache structure for high-performance, energy efficient compute.
  • AMD Infinity Fabric coherent interconnect for two “Naples” CPUs in a 2-socket system.
  • Dedicated security hardware.

AMD will shed light on its Naples server processors this week during the Open Compute Summit.
