The Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One (F1) Team achieved a 20% performance improvement for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) workloads used to model and test the aerodynamic flow of their F1 car by using AMD EPYC processors from ADVANCED Micro Devices Inc.

EPYC processors from AMD are designed to be the most powerful, energy-efficient, and cost-effective processors on the market; they are ideal for F1 teams due to their extreme workloads and the need to run simulations on the fly.

Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team is the current Constructors' Champion, having won the title an unprecedented eight times. The team can iterate on vehicle design faster and more efficiently than before thanks to EPYC processors.

The Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team is pushing the boundaries of what is possible with CFD by developing ground-breaking aerodynamics while delivering the price-performance required to meet Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile budget regulations (FIA).

Aerodynamics workloads are among the most complex and technical among F1 teams, necessitating the use of advanced processors and servers to run the analyses and benchmarks.

Furthermore, in order to avoid giving teams with more resources an unfair competitive advantage, the FIA has developed an intricate framework dictating how much CFD performance and wind tunnel time F1 teams are allowed to use.

For the record, AMD and Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team first announced a multi-year partnership in 2020 in an effort to synergize both companies' passion for extreme performance.
