The AMD EPYC 7H12 processor has a base frequency of 2.6GHz, a 3.3GHz maximum boost frequency, and a power envelope (TDP) of 280W. The Atos BullSequana XH2000 is a hybrid supercomputer that’s built using the new AMD EYPC processor with its 3rd-gen liquid-cooling system. Its blade server form factor allows for up to 32 installations in a single rack.
