[Anand]CPUs AMD’s New EPYC 7F52 Reviewed

I've shortened the title as it's too long.

Everyone wants a fast processor. The ability to get more stuff done is one of a number of guiding principles of business. However, business also needs consistency, safety and security, which is why having enterprise-class processors is often a requirement in the back-end infrastructure. These processors, with lots of cores, aren’t as fast as consumer processors, so it becomes a tussle whether it makes sense to go fast without security, or to play it safe with a proven platform. With AMD’s new 7F processors, the aim is to provide that proven platform with super-fast cores with lots of cache. We’ve got the 7F52 in for testing today.

Neat. This is a server grade CPU that would make for a good gaming chip someday down the road. The high clock speed & the full 256 megs of cache is sort of unusual for a chip with just the 16 cores. Wait... just 16 cores - We are so deep into 32 & 64 core territory that 16 cores seems like it's lacking. LOL. This is almost like an enterprise grade beefed up & uber capable 3950X.

It is a weird, but cool, CPU. 16 MB of L3 cache per core! It is 4x the chiplets of a 3950X with 3/4 of the cores on every chiplet disabled but with all of the cache enabled (only 1 core per CCX, 2 cores per chiplet). That is a crazy amount of cache per thread. I would love to play with it but I am not sure how great it would be for gaming. There is some extra latency if threads need to share data (each core can only access the cache in its CCX) but the Linux kernel compile times are seriously impressive for only 16 cores. It would be great to see gaming benchmarks too.

SevenTheHome's review has a good diagram and comparisons to other CPU layouts.

Imagine TR version of this chip:
3.9Ghz Base, 4.6Ghz Boost, 256MB L3 , 280W TDP for $999 :-).

A TR version would have four chiplets and 'only' 128MB of cache with 8 MB per core. It would be an instant buy for me at $999.

Edit: Or, maybe it would be an 8 core with 128 MB of cache? Disabling 3/4 of the cores spreads out the heat really well. I bet you could clock a TR with this configuration really high on water.

Oh definitely - at the $1000 price point it would make for a really unique & not terribly unaffordable enthusiast CPU. If we are lucky we may get a high cache desktop/HEDT variant CPU next refresh. Almost like the Intel 5775C broadwells that had that ton of eDRAM onboard and performed so highly for their class.

Why would anyone want this, that inter-core latency is just so bad. Such horribly single thread performance. Ugh!! /S

so wait... what is the intended market for this chip "enterprise" yes, sure. be almost as vague as it gets. Who's dream chip is this?

Add me on Steam, same name
