National Institute for Nuclear Physics in Italy Adopts AMD EPYC Processor

AMD today announced The National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) in Italy has picked the AMD EPYC 7351 processor to power its high-performance computing cluster. INFN, a leading European research institution, conducts theoretical and experimental research in the fields of subnuclear, nuclear, and astroparticle physics while offering access to its exceptional processing resources across Europe.

“As a tier one provider of clustered compute and storage for the largest currently ongoing experiments in physics, INFN delivers access to the massive amount of processing required for advanced research in nuclear physics,” said Luca dell’Agnello, head of the tier one center, INFN. “With the adoption of AMD EPYC into the institute, we are offering the latest generation of 
processing capability to our users and expanding the overall compute capabilities.”

The 16-core AMD EPYC 7351 provides the full complement of 128 lanes of PCIe connectivity and eight memory channels available on all EPYC 7000-series processors.
