Santa Clara, CA — June 25, 2018 — AMD today announced The National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) in Italy has picked the AMD EPYC 7351 processor to power its high-performance computing cluster. INFN, a leading European research institution, conducts theoretical and experimental research in the fields of subnuclear, nuclear, and astroparticle physics while offering access to its exceptional processing resources across Europe.
“As a tier one provider of clustered compute and storage for the largest currently ongoing experiments in physics, INFN delivers access to the massive amount of processing required for advanced research in nuclear physics,” said Luca dell’Agnello, head of the tier one center, INFN. “With the adoption of AMD EPYC into the institute, we are offering the latest generation of processing capability to our users and expanding the overall compute capabilities.”
The 16-core AMD EPYC 7351 provides the full complement of 128 lanes of PCIe connectivity and eight memory channels available on all EPYC 7000-series processors.
“We are extremely proud to have the high-performance AMD EPYC processor selected for the INFN datacenter,” said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager of Datacenter Products, AMD. “High-performance computing is another environment where the AMD EPYC processor feature set stands out for its ability to deliver scalable support for the compute and storage resources required for advanced research.”
AMD is attending the ISC High Performance Computing 2018 event in Frankfurt this week, demonstrating AMD EPYC and other customer solutions for a wide array of HPC workloads.
