AMD monster processor `` AMD EPYC 7742 '' with 64 cores / 128 threads achieved amazing benchmark results

AMD's processor for servers announced by AMD in August 2019 is '

AMD EPYC 7742 '. The AMD EPYC 7742 is manufactured on a 7nm process with 64 CPU cores, 128 threads, base frequency 2.25GHz, boost frequency 3.4GHz, L3 cache 256MB, basic TDP 225W, PCI Express 4.0 lane Is a processor that boasts monster-class specs with a memory capacity of up to 4TB. ServeTheHome conducts a benchmark test comparing such AMD EPYC 7742 with Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M , a processor for Intel servers.

ServeTheHome has benchmarked two AMD EPYC 7742 systems with four Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M systems. Regarding the reason for comparing the four Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M systems, ServeTheHome stated, “Although there was an Intel Xeon Platinum 8168 x8 system, the performance was lower than expected.” The result of the benchmark test is that 'AMD EPYC 7742 clearly showed higher performance'.

The specifications of the two processors that were compared are as follows.

Core / thread: 64/128
TDP: 225W
Base frequency: 2.25GHz
Boost frequency: 3.40GHz
L3 cache 256MB
PCIe lane: PCIe 4.0 x 128
Memory type: DDR4
Memory channels: 8
Price: $ 6950 (approx. 740,000 yen)

Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M
Core / Thread: 28/56
TDP: 205W
Base frequency: 2.50GHz
Boost frequency: 3.80GHz
L3 cache 38.5MB
PCIe lane: PCIe 3.0 x 48
Memory type: DDR4
Memory channels: 6
Price: $ 10,301 (about 1.4 million yen)

The benchmark software used for the benchmark test is Geekbench 4 , which has been tested multiple times.

In the benchmark results, a system equipped with four Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M is described as “ Dell PowerEdge R840 Rack Server ”, and a system loaded with two AMD EPYC 7742 is described as “AMD Corporation DAYTONA_X”.

The benchmark results are as follows. Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M × 4 has a single core score of “4700” and a multi-core score of “ 155050 ”. In contrast, AMD EPYC 7742 × 2 has a single-core score of “4876” and a multi-core score of “ 193554 ”.

Comparing the two systems, the AMD EPYC 7742 × 2 system is superior in terms of performance, with a single core score of up to 3.74% and a multicore score of up to 24.83%. Also, the Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M × 4 costs about 5.6 million yen and the AMD EPYC 7742 × 2 costs 1.44 million yen, so the AMD EPYC 7742 × 2 system is overwhelming in terms of cost performance. In addition, ServeTheHome does not make any fine adjustments, so if a dual socket for AMD EPYC 7742 appears from a major vendor, it is expected that it will easily exceed 200,000 in multicore score.

The state of the benchmark test by ServeTheHome can also be confirmed in the following movie.
