AMD Project 47, a rack server with 20 AMD EPYC 7601 32-core and 80 AMD Radeon Instinct with a power of 1 PetaFLOP

AMD has recently unveiled its new Project 47 server. That is a rack server that incorporates a large 20 AMD EPYC 7601 32-core processors. So, we have 640 cores in total and 1280 threads along with 80 AMD Radeon Instinct GPUs, 10TB of DDR4 memory installed (512GB Per platform), 20 100 Gigabit networks and a built-in 100 Gigabit Switch.

Project 47 Less Power Consumption

And that consumes the computing power of 33,000W for 1 PetaFLOP instructions. But in turn, reduces to a single rack server what previously required 2000 square meters of servers. And above all, it is energy efficient with a consumption of only 30W By TeraFLOP.

For comparison, we can go back to 2007 with the IBM Roadrunner supercomputer. That require 2000 square meters to house its 696 rack servers that equipped 64000 dual-core Opteron CPU and consumed 2,350,000W. It’s incredible that in just ten years, AMD has managed to reduce this to a single rack server that consumes 98% less energy. And it is necessary to mention that the Project 47 will not cost the 100 million $ that cost Roadrunner of IBM.

Less Cost of Project 47 as compared to AMD Supercomputer

Of course, the new Project 47 demonstrates that AMD EPYC has come to stay and poses a grave threat to a server market that traditionally dominated Intel with little competition. So this dramatical entry of AMD into super computing will lead to open many more doors in the new technology world.
