Naples and Vega will be a great product combination in AMD’s upcoming 2017 product lineup, with AMD offering server-grade CPUs with vastly more PCIe lanes than their competition to create large GPU focuses server/compute clusters.

AMD’s new Vega GPUs will also be able to utilise external memory to great effect, which works well with Naples’ 8-channel memory solutions to allow AMD-based servers to work with huge datasets.   

With Naples, AMD is set to take back their position in the server market, securing additional revenue for the company and bringing them back into competition with Intel in the enterprise CPU market.
