AMD A team equipped with its processor was taken to the IBC 2019 AMD EPYC 'ROME' top of the range and double, which helped him break two world records of benchmarking performance Cinebench R20 and V-Ray.
The team in question was riding nothing less than two AMD EPYC 7742, each of these processors offers 64 cores and 128 processing threads under microarchitecture Zen2 @ 7nm at a Base / Turbo frequency of 2.25 / 3.40 GHz with 256 MB of L3 cache, 128 PCI-Express 4.0 lines, a memory controller Octa (8) -Channel @ 3200 MHz and a TDP of 225W.
By joining them, we have a system with nothing less than 128 cores and 256 processing threads, a configuration that has made clear that Intel can do little with its current Xeon CPUs.
In the first performance test, Cinebench R20, this configuration reached a score of 31,913 pointsit was practically double the score achieved by 2x Intel Xeon Platinum 8168 (16,536 points), where each CPU offers 24 cores and 48 processing threads @ 2.70 / 3.70 GHz based on an already squeezed architecture Skylake @ 14nm ++ with a TDP of 205W., which is its direct rival in terms of price, because while AMD offers 2x EPYC 7742 for $ 13,900, the 2x Xeon Platinum 8168 They have a cost of $ 11,780.
On the other hand, in the software V-Ray, the AMD EPYC set another world record with a score of 75,125 pointswhile the Xeon Platinum 8168 they stay in tenth place in the table with 61,115 points, making it clear that AMD is the undisputed leader in terms of performance, consumption and price, since even 1x EPYC 7742 continues to outperform 2x Xeon Platinum 8168, ie $ 6,950 vs. $ 11,780 in addition to being 25% more powerful in Cibenech and much more efficient.
