AMD Reiterates that the Epyc Processors are Far More important to it than the Ryzens and Radeon

In the aftermath of the 4th Gen Epyc Genoa launch, AMD has reiterated its commitment to its data center business. As apparent in its Q3 2022 earnings report, Team Red has clearly become a data center-first company. Last quarter, the chipmaker’s operating income from the client segment was less than zero (down 105% YoY), and the data center made up for that drop with a net income of $505 million (up 64% YoY).

At the Epyc Genoa launch, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su stated that the data center represents the largest growth opportunity and the most strategic priority for AMD. It is committed to offering the industry’s broadest portfolio of high-performance and adaptive computing engines.

Choosing the right data center processor is more important than ever, and 4th Gen EPYC processors deliver leadership in every dimension. The data center represents the largest growth opportunity and the most strategic priority for AMD. We are committed to making AMD the partner of choice by offering the industry’s broadest portfolio of high-performance and adaptive computing engines. We have built the best data center CPU roadmap in the industry, and with 4th Gen EPYC, we deliver another major step forward in performance and efficiency to make the best server processor roadmap even better. With a significantly expanded set of solutions on-track to launch from our ecosystem of partners, customers selecting 4th Gen EPYC to power their data centers can improve performance, consolidate their infrastructure, and lower energy costs.

Dr. Lisa Su, AMD CEO.

The 4th Gen Epyc Genoa processors are, without a doubt, the fastest server chips on the market, offering twice as much performance as the preceding Milan parts and absolutely destroying the Xeon Ice Lake-SP. Sapphire Rapids is out, at least, in some formats, but it’s bound to be a classic case of “too little, too late”. Here’s an overview of the 4th Gen Epyc family:
