Welcome back, AMD! With 24 physical zippy cores for just $1 / hour, your application or build service never looked better!


We’ve always loved AMD's mojo, and the 7401P EPYC™ processor stands up to the hype. Cutting to the chase, this is the scale out compute box you've been looking for.  With 24 physical cores / 48 hyperthreaded cores at a 2.0 Ghz base clock speed (3.0 Ghz max with turbo) and a good dose of zippy RAM, your application or build service never looked better. 

Oh, and did we mention it's just $1.00 / hour?  Yup.  Welcome AMD to the party
