Azure HBv3 VMs for HPC now generally available with AMD EPYC CPUs with AMD 3D V-Cache

Azure HBv3 virtual machines (VMs) are now upgraded to and generally available with AMD EPYC 3rd Gen processors with 3D V-Cache, formerly codenamed “Milan-X”, in the Azure East US, South Central, and West Europe regions. The new processors significantly improve the performance, scaling efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of a variety of memory performance-bound workloads such as CFD, explicit finite element analysis, computational geoscience, weather simulation, and silicon design right-to-left (RTL) workflows.
