An interesting entry in the SiSoftware SANDRA database has been spotted that has shown a presumably upcoming Dell server being tested with one of AMD’s forthcoming Epyc 2 “Rome” chips. It seems the engineering sample and Dell server get along with each other very well, as the qualification record states “excellent performance.”

An AMD engineering sample with the mysterious codename ZS1711E3VIVG5_24/17_N has been spotted on SiSoftware’s website. Fortunately, quite a bit of the codename can be decoded, although the database entry delivers most of the pertinent details anyway. The chip in question sports 32 cores and 64 threads, has a base clock of 1.7 GHz and boosts to 2.4 GHz, and in this instance it was apparently overclocked by 40%.

The AMD engineering sample contains the code “G5”, which is known to refer to Rome (also, the second letter “S” is for “Server”). It seems obvious that the Dell PowerEdge R6515 mentioned in the record is a successor to the PowerEdge R6415 Rack Server that features 32-core AMD Epyc processors. It’s a step up, both for AMD and Dell.

SiSoftware posts a healthy score of 1544.41 Mpix/s for this AMD Rome/Dell PowerEdge combination. There has been some speculation that Dell could move toward an AMD-only server generation, which would not be entirely surprising considering the speed efficiency results of the 32-core 64-thread engineering sample in this case.
