AMD shares had a significant rise thanks to the next generation EPYC chips.
With the launch of its processors AMD EPYC ‘ROME’, with its up to 64 cores and 128 processing threads with a microarchitecture Zen2 at 7nm, They were the star of the event.
These new chips offer a substantial leap in performance and efficiency, all at a reduced price, at least in these first months of launch.
Specialized sites such as ServeTheHome already have samples of these new products and comment that the new EPYC processors have a memory capacity 300% higher in front of an Xeon even though they have 33% more memory channels (Octa (8) -Channel vs Hexa (6) -Channel), not to mention what they offer 233% more PCI-Express 3.0 lines.
When specialized media, in a market as key as that of servers, the cloud, supercomputing, etc., use words like "historical" or phrases like "never seen before in the industry", this means that we are facing something very large, to the point that the most important companies in the world like Google or Twitter, have recognized that they are using AMD EPYC processors to give life to their data centers and computer instances, and now with this 2nd Gen of CPUs, it is logical to expect that they will definitely put aside the adoption of Intel Xeon CPUs.
With all this, AMD shares have increased their value above 17 percent, and continue to rise.
