Manik Kapoor, Vertical Sales, – Telco COE I APJ&I, AMD, talked about HPC and adaptive computing solutions, at the Telecom Leadership Forum 2022


AMD has a compute architecture roadmap for sustained, high-performance leadership. This starts from 14nm Zen in 2017, up to 5nm Zen 4 in 2023. We are increasing the already impressive leadership. AMD EPYC is the new data center leader. There is a leadership roadmap, with constant execution, performance, and architecture for accelerated computing.

There are significant technology opportunities. In the data center, we are leveraging strong AMD relationships and AMD EPYC processor momentum. AMD has leadership AI, SmartNIC, and workload-specific accelerator solutions. In 5G and wired communications, AMD is driving the adoption of EPYC processors in wired and wireless infrastructures. In embedded, AMD has enabled differentiated solutions for Xilinx’s broad customer base and distribution platform. It now has an expanded portfolio of CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and adaptive SoCs. We need to process data more efficiently at the edge.

AMD is also looking at the telco solutions domain. These are across various categories, such as AI and edge, content delivery and gaming, operational and business support systems, policy, control and security, platforms, core and cable, RAN, etc. Video data will form the majority of Internet traffic by 2028 and in the future. There are increasing expectations of businesses and consumers.


Telco CTOs are also viewing video and gaming as critical for their success. 5G is well placed as the first technology to offer richer services. Telcos are also recognizing the needs of Industry 4.0 for smart cities. They are enhancing smarter coverage. 5G software scales with the cores.

We have also made great traction with data centers. AMD is delivering leadership compute differentiation for data center growth. In supercomputing, we are leading the exascale era by winning top deployments. In the cloud, AMD is expanding deployments with leading providers. In an enterprise, there are large-scale deployments with a growing pipeline.

Let us look at the third-generation AMD EPYC processor. We are extending the per socket core density and per-core performance leadership. It is currently the world’s highest performance server processor. There is higher performance in HPC, cloud, and enterprise workloads. We have built advanced security features with AMD Infinity Guard. The AMD EPYC processor is built on a powerful, efficient Zen 3 core.


The second-generation EPYC broke over 250+ world records. These were spread across data management, business apps, infrastructure/HCI/SDI, and HPC/engineering/technical. AMD also helps in reducing the TCO, as compared to competitors.

In conclusion, AMD is offering a complete portfolio. There is an innovation from the data center to the edge. AMD EPYC has leadership in x86 CPUs. AMD INSTINCT has the best compute-optimized GPU architecture today. In adaptive acceleration, there are the Xilinx Alveo, Versal, and Zync platforms. These are leadership FPGAs and adaptive SoCs. They are accelerating evolving workloads, including AI, smart networking, and software-defined infrastructure.
