AMD has formally announced the new EPYC 4004 line of enterprise processors, which is expected to serve the small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) with its scalability at optimized cost.

EPYC 4004 Goes AM5

While Team Red is making steady process of covering all bases of the enterprise CPU markets, some of them were unaddressed. Today, the new EPYC line, which uses Socket AM5 like Ryzen 7000 series, is expected to compete against Intel’s Xeon E-2400 series, which maxes out at 8 cores in the form of Xeon E-2488. AMD’s most powerful offering in this lineup will be the EPYC 4564P/4584PX, both offering 16 Zen4 cores on tap with the ‘X’ variant featuring 3D V-Cache for greater performance in certain workloads.

AMD claims an EPYC 4564P-powered server will deliver 80% more performance per dollar compared to an equivalent system by Intel Xeon E-2488 – and the good news is, AMD has keep the MSRP largely consistent with its Ryzen counterparts, and in some cases cheaper (though Ryzen’s market price has dropped since launch). There’s even a 4-core model offered here which only costs $149 apiece.

Expect the new EPYC 4004-powered system to arrive sometime later from partners and OEMs including Altos, ASRock Rack, Gigabyte, Lenovo, MSI, Newegg, OVHcloud, Supermicro and Tyan. “Based on the same technologies that power the most demanding data centers in the world, the AMD EPYC 4004 Series processors are offered at an optimized acquisition cost for customers in small and medium-sized businesses seeking to drive better business outcomes,” said John Morris, corporate vice president, Enterprise and HPC Business Group, AMD.
