Conclusion - EPYC gets more EPIC!
AMD's 7003 series of 3rd Generation EPYC processors delivers on the potential of Zen 3, delivering the same innovations as the Ryzen 5000 series while also endeavouring to provide their enterprise customers with more versatility and tighter security.
With a 19% IPC increase, AMD's 3rd Generation EPYC processors don't require more cores or threads to compete with their Intel counterparts. With Zen 3, AMD has extended its leadership within the enterprise market, further strengthening its already robust 2nd Generation EPYC offerings with increased performance and new platform features.
AMD has managed to keep its promises with their EPYC processor roadmap, making a mockery of Intel's frequent processor delays and the long-lived nature of the Cascade Lake product line. AMD is delivering strong generational gains in performance while Intel has stagnated, and Intel needs to respond to this.
With their Zen 3 cores, AMD has given their processor cores access to more L3 cache and a wide range of architectural improvements, delivering performance improvements across practically all workloads without increasing their power consumption over their last-generation EPYC CPUs.
AMD's EPYC 7003 processors deliver solid pricing, excellent performance and more versatility to their customers. In short, AMD's 3rd Generation EPYC processors are a clear win for the company. The only problem that we foresee for EPYC is availability, as these processors are going to sell like hotcakes.
