Dell PowerEdge R7525: Specs and Rack Compatibility

 

Dell’s PowerEdge R7525, released in 2020, improves on the R7425 by offering support for AMD EPYC processors with twice the core count and support, and 20% faster memory. 1st gen EPYC CPUs already offered more cores at a lower cost than Intel alternatives, so the 2nd generation’s 64 core CPUs were exciting to many enthusiasts. 

Additionally, the server includes PCIe Gen4 for faster data transfer speed amongst its potential 3 double wide or 6 single wide accelerators. In all, this is a server designed for data analytics, all flash SDS, and BBI.
