The AMD EPYC 4004 Series CPUs provide the price conscious buyer with enterprise-grade performance, dependability, scalability and modern security features powered by the highly efficient “Zen 4” architecture. When compared to an Intel Xeon E-2488 CPU, a server powered by a single AMD EPYC 4564P CPU delivers a 1.8x increase in performance per CPU dollar.

“Historically, many small to medium businesses have had to compromise on their IT solutions by using hardware that doesn’t fully meet their needs,” said John Morris, corporate vice president, Enterprise and HPC Business Group, AMD. “Based on the same technologies that power the most demanding data centers in the world, the AMD EPYC 4004 Series processors are offered at an optimized acquisition cost for customers in small and medium-sized businesses seeking to drive better business outcomes.”

A Trusted Choice for Growing Businesses

The AMD EPYC 4004 Series processors are built to deliver strong, general-purpose computing in a single-socket package, enabling highly performant rack scale, multi-node and tower configurations where system cost and other infrastructure constraints are critical considerations.

“As part of our ongoing collaboration, Lenovo is excited to see AMD introducing new EPYC 4004 CPUs that help address new market opportunity. The expansion of the AMD EPYC processor roadmap addresses a larger market segment with the affordable, yet high-performance capabilities of the new processor,” said Kamran Amini, Vice President and General Manager for Server, Storage & Software Defined Solutions at Lenovo. “With the introduction of AMD EPYC 4004 series CPUs, AMD is helping to address the needs of server customers across the spectrum, providing price per performance value for growing businesses along with efficiency for a dependable, secure, infrastructure.”

“We are thrilled to add yet another AMD EPYC solution to our Bare Metal portfolio. Sharing common values with AMD such as efficiency and sustainability, we are convinced our upcoming AMD EPYC 4004 CPU-powered solutions will provide flexibility in the datacenter. Our customers will be able to harness the sheer compute performance and energy efficiency of these new processors all the while benefiting from our Trusted Cloud and performance-price ratio,” said Yaniv Fdida, chief product and technology officer, OVHcloud.

“The workload performance of Supermicro’s 3U MicroCloud Multi-Node Server and 1U,2U Mainstream Server Family powered by the AMD EPYC 4004 Series CPUs, brings increased value to customers looking for cost-effective and easy-to-deploy solutions,” said Michael McNerney, SVP Marketing and Network Security, Supermicro. “Together, we’re expanding access to businesses looking to optimize their hosting and content delivery, cloud workloads, and more.”
