Balanced Memory is Best: 2nd Generation AMD EPYC Processors for PowerEdge Servers

Understanding the relationship between a server processor (CPU) and its memory subsystem is critical when optimizing overall server performance. Every CPU generation has unique memory population guidelines that must be satisfied to attain the best memory performance. 2nd Generation AMD EPYCTM server processors can support up to sixteen memory modules across eight channels with two memory slots. This presents numerous possible ways of configuring the memory subsystem, yet there are only a couple of configurations that will achieve the peak memory performance for Dell EMC PowerEdge servers. Memory that has been incorrectly populated is referred to … READ MORE
