AMD has unveiled the EPYC 4004 Series processors, expanding its server CPU portfolio with cost-effective options that provide enterprise-level features and top-tier performance, catering to the needs of small and medium-sized businesses as well as hosted IT service providers.

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.

AMD EPYC 4004 Technical Specifications

The AMD EPYC 4004 family features the Zen4 architecture, with up to 2 CCDs, 16 cores and 32 threads. It has 1 MB of L2 cache per core and 32 MB of L3 cache per CCD – maxes out at 64 MB total. The top of the line EPYC 4564P for an instance comes with 16 cores and 32 threads, then maxes out with a boost clock of 5.7 GHz with a TDP of 170 W.

All EPYC 4004 CPUs uses the LGA 1718 – which is basically the AM5 platform. Before we get ahead of ourselves, AMD has yet to provide any comment on its possible compatibility with consumer grade AM5 motherboards. I.e., the X670/E, B650/E, and A620 chipset based motherboards. It is however, most likely slated for the AMD PRO 665 and PRO 660 motherboards available thru AMD’s business channels.

EPYC 4124P 4 16 65 W 3.8GhZ 5.1 GHz $149
EPYC 4584PX 16 128 120 W 4.2 GHz 5.7 GHz $699
EPYC 4484PX 12 128 120 W 4.4 GHz 5.6 GHz $599

AMD EPYC 4004 CPU-powered servers offer a compelling balance of performance, scalability and affordability. Enabling a wide array of broadly deployed enterprise solutions, AMD EPYC 4004 Series CPUs are supported by leading partners including, Altos, ASRock Rack, Gigabyte, Lenovo, MSI, New Egg, OVHcloud, Supermicro and Tyan.

Update: AMD shares that the new EPYC 4004 processors will be compatible with most AMD AM5 chipset motherboards.

To directly quote AMD’s response, “Yes, EPYC 4004 is compatible with AM5 boards. Obviously if its low power board, you can’t plug in a 170 W EPYC into it but these should be compatible with any AM5 board that fits the power envelope.”, says AMD.

You are only limited to motherboards that could provide enough power to the new EPYC 4004 processors.
