Broadcom announced that its NetXtreme E-Series Ethernet adapters and Emulex LPe35000-series HBAs now provide the fastest networking performance with the AMD EPYC 7002 Series Processor-based systems- the x86 datacenter CPU, supporting PCIe 4.0.
The company said that 200GbE NetXtreme E-series and Gen 7 32GFC LPe35000-series are the world’s first portfolio of Ethernet adapters and Fibre Channel HBAs with support for PCIe 4.0.
PCIe 4.0 will double the bandwidth per lane to provide significant I/O performance benefits for storage and Ethernet networking, NVMe deployments and AI applications. AMD and Broadcom have worked closely to bring solutions to market that feature embedded security and silicon root of trust on Thor 200G Ethernet controllers and XE601 Fibre Channel controllers to make these the most secure solutions in the industry.
“Thor and AMD EPYC 7002 Series Processors provide the best performing and most secure Ethernet connectivity and compute platform in the industry,” said Ed Redmond, senior vice president and general manager, Compute and Connectivity Division, Broadcom. “Thor, with 200GbE bandwidth and silicon root of trust, running on AMD PCIe 4.0 platforms, enable the industry to achieve greater levels of performance and security for hyperscale and enterprise data centers.”
“The Emulex LPe35000 HBA with PCIe 4.0 and NVMe over Fibre Channel doubles mission-critical workload bandwidth, while cutting host CPU utilization in half,” said Jeff Hoogenboom, general manager, Emulex Connectivity Division, Broadcom.
“Driven by AMD’s history of datacenter innovation, including 7nm process technology, embedded security features and the world’s first x86 supplier to support PCIe 4.0, the AMD EPYC 7002 Series Processors set a new standard for the modern data center,” said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, Datacenter Solutions Group, AMD.
Broadcom is now sampling Thor-based dual-port 100GbE and single-port 100GbE OCP 3.0, OCP 2.0, and PCIe NIC adapters to qualified customers.
Broadcom is now shipping single, dual and quad-port Emulex Gen 7 LPe35000-series HBAs through its OEM partners.
