AMD EPYC 7713 multi-core Milan monster takes the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X by +73% and the Intel Xeon W-3175X by +100% on Geekbench
The top-end parts of the AMD Zen 3 Milan server series have started coming out of the shadows, and while the number one SKU, the EPYC 7763, made something of a muted first appearance on Geekbench, the number two part has come out all guns blazing. The AMD EPYC 7713, which has a 64-core, 128-thread configuration, has to rely on a lower TDP than its EPYC 7763 counterpart (225 W vs. 280 W) and a much lower base clock (2.00 GHz vs. 2.45 GHz).
Those “limitations” didn’t prevent the EPYC 7713 from reaching a maximum recorded frequency of 3.72 GHz as part of a Capri server from the Taiwanese firm MiTAC, which was utilizing Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS as OS. The single-core score was a respectable 1,382 points, but the multi-core score was an incredible 43,333 points. Although this is a theoretical maximum result at the moment due to it being the first publicly tested sample, it’s still interesting to compare the EPYC 7713's score with the average results managed by other multi-core monster chips.
The Zen 3 Milan server CPU's score is +73.16% higher than the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X's average mark, and it is still over +13.17% ahead of some of the higher-performing results achieved by the latter Zen 2-based part. Unsurprisingly, the Intel Xeon W-3175X with its 28 cores is completely outclassed here, as the EPYC 7713 takes a +100.04% advantage over the Skylake-X processor's average score. Now we have some idea of what the second-ranked Milan chip can do, hopefully the top model EPYC 7763 will soon follow up and make a greater impact on the same synthetic benchmark.
