AMD: New CPU’s Market Share Gains Could Be Limited to Supply Issues
For the past few years, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has been a
real thorn in Intel’s side, increasingly taking CPU market share
away from the historically much bigger rival. In the meantime, the
gap has closed, and AMD is now looking to further cement its status
in the computer server market. On Monday, the chip giant launched
the 3rd generation EPYC server CPU - code named Milan. Built on
TSMC’s 7nm process (same as the second-generation Rome), and
featuring AMD's Zen 3 microarchitecture, Milan should display a
significantly better instructions per clock (IPC) performance.
Cloud, Enterprise and HPC customers should also benefit from
Milan’s enhanced security features.
