has introduced the EPYC 4004 Series processors, a new addition to their server CPU portfolio specifically designed for small and medium businesses and hosted IT service providers. This new lineup aims to provide cost-effective, enterprise-class performance, leveraging the advanced “Zen 4” architecture.

AMD's strategic move to optimise costs and performance

The EPYC 4004 Series offers a strategic advantage for businesses that are price-conscious but require reliable and scalable IT solutions. According to AMD, when compared to the ® Xeon® E-2488 CPU, a server equipped with a single AMD EPYC 4564P CPU offers a performance increase of 1.8 times per CPU dollar. This makes the EPYC 4004 an appealing option for companies looking to maximise their investment in technology.

John Morris, Corporate Vice President at AMD's Enterprise and HPC Business Group, emphasised the significance of this launch: “Historically, many small to medium businesses have had to compromise on their IT solutions by using hardware that doesn't fully meet their needs. Based on the same technologies that power the most demanding data centres in the world, the AMD EPYC 4004 Series processors are offered at an optimised acquisition cost.”
