A benchmark of the alleged AMD 7nm ‘Rome’ EPYC processor has just been released. The results have been published in Chiphell’s forums and would probably be a technical sample of the new generation chip “EPYC”, which will be available for servers in 2019.
The new AMD EPYC Rome at 7 nm would be more than twice as fast as the threadripper 2990WX
The filtration is a technical sample of the same size and dimension as the current EPYC ‘Naples’ series of processors. The codename and ID have been locked, so we can’t tell if this is real or not, but the results obtained in Cinebench are very interesting.
The chip has been tested in multicore on the Cinebench R15 and the chip achieves an amazing 12,587 points, which is above any other processor we know today. AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX scored about 5500 points in the same reference test with 32 cores and 64 threads. And the value we see on the leaks shows more than twice as much performance as Threadripper’s flagship. We also have the EPYC 7601, which scores around 6000 points with 8 channel memory support.
We know that the clock frequencies of the new 7nm chips would be higher than 14nm and that they could also use 8-channel memory. While the result of this new 64-core chip at Multi-Thread is surprising, the benchmark is not confirmed, it is not official, so we have to take this information with a pinch of salt.
These new AMD processors based on Zen 2 for the server market are expected to arrive in 2019. AMD is also planning a third generation called Milan, which is expected to arrive in 2020.
There is nothing confirmed on these scores, another more clear picture of this CB score is caught from Reddit.
That describes 128 cores with 256 threads, that seem really high processing power. However, we know that it is really easy to manipulate in CB scores and circulate hyping rumors around the world. But if this information is really true then it is right to say that we are gonna have a real processing beast. In this CB picture above, the only information hidden is the name of processor that is compared with the latest Intel processors.
