Baidu grasps single-attachment AMD EPYC chips

AMD scores another enormous win for its EPYC server chips, with Baidu changing to a solitary attachment stage for its AI, huge information, and distributed computing administrations.




Baidu, the Chinese web look supplier and pioneer in manmade brainpower, today declared the prompt accessibility of AMD EPYC-controlled AI, enormous information, and distributed computing (ABC) administrations.

The main factor in Baidu picking EPYC is by all accounts the execution offered by the stage when designed for single-attachment utilize. 

"By offering extraordinary execution in single-processor frameworks, the AMD EPYC stage gives adaptability and elite in our datacenter, which enables Baidu to convey more productive administrations to our clients," said Liu Chao, senior chief, Baidu System Technologies Department. "Baidu's central goal is to make an unpredictable world less difficult through innovation, and we are always hoping to find and apply the most recent forefront advances, developments, and answers for business. AMD EPYC processors furnish Baidu with another level of vitality proficient and effective figuring ability." 

AMD offers what it calls a "no bargain" single-attachment stage, with no self-assertive confinements set on I/O, or memory bandwith and execution. This enables clients to settle on a no trade off decision for underutilized servers, and advantage from bring down power utilization and lower capital use. 

"Baidu is a since quite a while ago perceived pioneer in datacenter developments, and with their selection of AMD EPYC they proceed down that way by utilizing our single-attachment advancements to control their ABC technique," said Scott Aylor, corporate VP, and general supervisor, AMD Enterprise Solutions. "It is an exciting knowledge to work next to each other with Baidu to investigate the capacities of AMD EPYC and expand its application over their clients' workloads." 

Each EPYC processor bundle can bolster up to 2TB of DDR4 RAM more than eight channels, and has 128 PCIe paths, which implies that the stage has more than more than two times the I/O thickness of a processor, for example, Intel's Xeon SP Series. 

This win comes barely seven days after Microsoft turned into the main worldwide cloud supplier to utilize EPYC processors in its datacenters. Also, back in November, the new EPYC-fueled Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) ProLiant DL385 Gen10 server set new world records for both SPECrate 2017_fp_base and SPECfp_rate2006 benchmarks.
