NORTHBROOK, Illinois – March 21, 2022. International Computer Concepts (ICC), a leading systems integrator of enterprise-level computing solutions announces availability of high-performance systems featuring new 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors with AMD 3D V-Cache™ technology, optimized for engineering workloads including Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and Electronic Design Automation (EDA).
Technical Computing workloads are dependent on simulation-driven technologies that both ingest and generate huge datasets. With these continually growing datasets comes the need for more and more performant compute. Featuring industry leading hardware, Cloud orchestration software and 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors, ICC’s turnkey solutions are designed to maximize workload acceleration, boost both memory and performance and accelerate time to insights.
The World’s Highest Performance Processors for Technical Computingii: AMD EPYC™ 7003 Processors with AMD 3D V-Cache™ technology triple the amount of available L3 cache to 768MBs per socket versus standard EPYC 7003 seriesiii, helping deliver faster time-to-results on targeted workloads like EDA, CFD, and FEA software and solutions while providing socket compatibility with existing AMD EPYC™ 7003 platforms.iv By increasing the pool of L3 cache that is lower latency and closer to the core than main memory, AMD EPYC™ 7003 Processors with AMD 3D V-Cache utilize the same shared memory architecture as the rest of the 3rd Generation EPYC™ family. That means customers can now take advantage of a full up to 96MB of L3 cache per CCD without sacrificing performance, even on lower core count and mainstream processors.
“Raising the bar once more for breakthrough performance, 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors with AMD 3D V-Cache technology accelerate critical product design and technical computing workloads by vertically stacking L3 cache using our ground-breaking packaging technology. This provides the performance and energy efficiency needed for critical, compute-intensive workloads enabling faster time to results,” said Ram Peddibhotla, corporate vice president, EPYC product management, AMD. “3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors with AMD 3D V-Cache technology are also socket compatible with existing 3rd Gen EPYC platforms enabling customers to get up and running quickly and driving better business outcomes.”
“We’re excited to launch a suite of new solutions optimized for best -performance and efficiency – specifically designed for our customers running Technical Computing workloads. Modern engineering applications running at scale are highly dependent on HPC infrastructure. Our innovative turnkey cluster solutions powered by AMD EPYC™ processors and LMX Cloud Orchestration software from our European counterparts Define Tech – are designed to simplify HPC and AI adoption and offer outstanding performance for any memory-bound applications and workloads” adds ICC’s Director of Development, Alexey Stolyar.
