AMD + Aurora1 delivers exponentially faster AV1 encoding

Get Up to 16 4Kp60 Live Streams on the 4th Generation AMD EPYC™ 9004 Series Processors

Performance + Efficiency are the new metrics for success in IT. Servers powered by AMD EPYC™ 9004 CPUs can deliver faster time to resultsSP5-013, helping provide more and better insights for decision making, driving better business outcomes. AMD EPYC™ CPUs – performant, efficient, and on time.

By running the Aurora1 AV1 Software Encoder on AMD EPYC 9004 Series processors video services can encode up to 16 real-time channels in broadcast-quality 4Kp60.

AMD EPYC9004 CPUs support 12 memory channels with 2 DIMMs/channel capability*, delivering the resources needed for memory-hungry AI, ML, HPC, and large in-memory computations.

AMD EPYCprocessors’ balanced set of resources enables you to match the CPU core count to your video encoding requirements without compromising processor features.

“By adopting 4th Gen AMD EPYC™ processors, enterprises can optimize their data center footprint to do more with less, accelerating their core business while helping address their sustainability goals,” said Ram Peddibhotla, corporate vice president, EPYC product management, AMD.

This incredible performance opens the highly desired AV1 video codec to be used in a wide range of premium SVOD, live sports, broadcast streaming, and WebRTC applications. The HTOP graphic above clearly shows consistently high core utilization.
