EPYC 7000 Series Processor Performance
AMD also revealed their internal benchmarks for the EPYC 7000 series processors :[adrotate group=”2″]
Single Socket AMD EPYC 7601 Server
- SPECiut_rate2006 : 1200
- SPECfp_rate2006 : 943
Two Socket AMD EPYC 7601 Server
- SPECiut_rate2006 : 1390
- SPECfp_rate2006 : 1330
AMD compared the two processor performance of the EPYC 7601, showing that it beat the Intel Xeon E5-2699A v4 in integer compute by 47%, and floating point compute by 75%.
Price Performance Advantage
AMD also took pains to point out that the price performance advantage the EPYC 7000 Series processors have over their Intel Xeon rivals, in both the 2-socket and single-socket segments.
Data Security Advantage
Other than raw computing performance and support for a truckload of memory, EPYC processors also offer an integrated hardware security subsystem. This allows the EPYC processors to deliver full memory encryption and secure multi-tenancy for data domain with no application impact.
Compatibility & Support
Finally, AMD wants everyone to know that the EPYC is an x86 processor and readily supports all x86 applications in the market. They have also performed extensive tests with industry partners like Microsoft, VMware and Red Hat.
They have also lined up considerable support from their server partners to deliver AMD EPYC solutions to customers worldwide.
