Atos and AMD have revealed that the supercomputer BullSequana XH200 has broken four new performance records in the benchmarking suite SPEC CPU 2017, and this was possible thanks to the new top-of-the-range processor that AMD announced last week, the EPYC 7H12, which is an EPYC 7742 with Vitamin Base frequencies thinking of yielding more performance.
He AMD 7H12 offers 64 cores and 128 processing threads under microarchitecture Zen2 @ 7nm at a Base / Turbo frequency of 2.60 / 3.40 GHz with 256 MB of L3 cache, 128x PCI-Express 4.0 lines, a memory controller Octa (8) -Channel @ 3200 MHz and a TDP of 280W, compared to 2.25 / 3.40 GHz with a TDP of 225W that handles the EPYC 7742. For perfect performance, the EPYC 7H12 are cooled by a water cooling system.
Thanks to 11% extra TFLOPs thrown by the AMD EPYC 7H12 against the EPYC 7742, AMD already accumulates more than 100 performance records, which makes clear the enormous performance of the platform with respect to the Intel Xeon. In case it was not enough, in addition to being more powerful, AMD solutions consume less energy thanks to their 7nm manufacturing process and are much cheaper.
