A 96-core AMD EPYC Genoa seems to outperform 2x EPYC 7773X

amd has seen numerous benchmark leaks that its next high-end server processor, the AMD EPYC Genoa with 96 cores and 128 threads processing under the architecture AMD Zen4. Despite being an engineering spectacle, the CPU has already broken several world performance records for an x86 processor.

Let’s go directly to the most popular benchmark on the market, Cinebench R23where this processor got a score of 100,776 points operating at 2.20 GHz. To give us an idea, 2x AMD EPYC 7773Xwhich adds 128 cores and 256 threads AMD Zen3 with 768MB of L3 cache, moves into the 98,000 dotswhile some are not out yet Intel Xeon Platinum 8480 (Sapphire Rapids-SP), in configuration double socket (112 cores and 224 threads), it moves in the 68,200 points.

Benchmarks AMD EPYC Genoa

In other relevant benchmarks, such as VRay in multi-core, the AMD EPYC GENOA achieves 88,300 points in front of the 84,506 points 2x AMD EPYC 7773X or 66,915 points 2x Xeon Platinum 8480 (nearly 72,000 for its 8480+ version). Otherwise, we have single-core performancewhere, for example, in CPU-Z, Intel continues to dominate, although it is of little use when talking about processors for servers that require the highest possible number of cores.

We remind you that the high-end processor is the AMD EPYC 9654Pmade of 96 cores and 192 processing threads under the architecture AMD Zen4to a manufacturing process 5nm from TSMC, which operates at a Base/Turbo frequency of 2.00/2.15 GHz with access to 384 MB of cache and reaches a TDP of 360W.

These processors are capable of supporting up to 12 channels of DDR5 RAMwhich will allow you to manage up to 3 TB of RAMas will happen with the new family of AMD Ryzen desktop processors, a new socket has been released, in this case everything goes through the new AMD SP5 (LGA6096), capable of delivering up to 700W of power, which implies a notable jump from the 450W that the previous SP3 socket (LGA4094) was able to provide. Also worth noting is the use of the PCI-Express 5.0 interface.
