Taipei, Taiwan, 20th August 2019 â€“ GIGABYTE, a leading server systems builder which recently released a total of 17 new AMD EPYCâ„˘ 7002 Series â€śRomeâ€ť server platforms simultaneously with AMDâ€™s own official launch of their next generation CPU, is proud to announce that our new systems have already broken 11 different SPEC benchmark world records. These new world records have not only been achieved against results from all alternative processor based systems but even against competing vendor solutions using the same 2nd Generation AMD EPYCâ„˘ 7002 Series â€śRomeâ€ť processor platform, illustrating that GIGABYTEâ€™s system design and engineering is perfectly optimized to deliver the maximum performance possible from the 2nd Generation AMD EPYC.
The systems used to break the world records were GIGABYTEâ€™s dual socket R282-Z90 rack server, or GIGABYTEâ€™s single socket R272-Z30 rack server, together with AMDâ€™s new 64 core EPYCâ„˘ 7742 processor. The 11 new world records consist of the following:
7 New SPEC CPUÂ® 2017 Benchmark World Records
SPEC CPUÂ® 2017 are a set of benchmarks that measure compute intensive applications, with two main sub-categories: SPECrate and SPECspeed benchmarks. SPECrate benchmarks are a measure of throughput, and are ideal for measuring multi-threaded compute-intensive applications, such as High Performance Computing (HPC) workloads. SPECspeed benchmarks are a measure of speed and are ideal for measuring single-threaded compute-intensive applications, such as High Frequency Trading (HFT) and other financial industry workloads.
"The 11 new world records gathered up by Gigabyte's Rome servers include seven SPEC CPU 2017 Benchmark World Records, and four SPECjbb 2015 Benchmark World Records. These are designed to measure multi-threaded compute-intensive applications such as High Performance Computing (HPC) workloads, and typical Enterprise Java applications, respectively.
If you head on over to the Gigabyte press release about this news you can find links to PDFs showing off the specific world record beating performance of its new Rome single- and dual-socket systems. You will notice that all the world record beating systems use the AMD Epyc 7742 CPU(s)" https://hexus.net/tech/news/systems/...world-records/
That's pushing it didn't win lows have some performance loss or was that Nvidia's fault. Either way here's hoping to see 2nd/3td hand Epyc CPUs hit used market in yr or so lol. My ole duel opteron 6380 could be put out to paster lol.
