During IBC 2019, AMD was showing live the potential of its new EPYC 7742, its 64-core and 128-wire monsters per processor, using two of these CPUs to add a total of 128 cores and 256 threads on a single motherboard, and Breaking some records
In Cinebench R20, an impressive result of 31913pts was obtained, compared to the 20645 obtained by only one of these EPYC 7742, and the 16536pts that achieve two Xeon Platinum 8168 of 24 cores and 48 threads each.
Surely you are thinking “There are two CPUs with 64 cores and 128 threads vs. two of only 24 cores and 48 threads, it is obvious that it will be much higher ”, and yes, it is so. The comparison is made because each EPYC 7742 costs $ 6950, while each Xeon costs $ 5890. Taking it twice, they are US $ 13900 for two EPYC, and US $ 11780 for both Xeon, so the EPYC is 17% more expensive, but offers 92% more performance. Even a single EPYC of US $ 6950 exceeds the double-Xeon configuration of US $ 11780, so AMD earns a lot in price performance.
In the V-Ray benchmark, it managed to exceed 75 thousand points with a single EPYC 7742, exceeding configurations of 72 or up to 112 Intel cores, demonstrating the impressive performance offered by the new generation of AMD server processors.
Undoubtedly, AMD did a great job with its new CPUs, and these tests of the EPYC 7742 leave it reflected.
What do you think about these results of EPYC 7742?
