Two 32-core AMD EPYC 7513 Milan chips working in tandem gain +8% over Ryzen Threadripper 3990X on Geekbench without even breaking into a sweat
Dr Lisa Su was not exaggerating when she recently described the upcoming Zen 3 Milan chips as the “world’s highest performance x86 server processors”. A pair of 32-core AMD EPYC 7513 processors has been spotted by Tum Apisak working some magic on Geekbench as part of an HPE ProLiant XL225n Gen10 Plus server that was able to support two of the Milan parts. While the single-core score was only 762 points, the multi-core score was an astonishing 27,243 points.
The result by the 2x EPYC 7513 processors may be a potential maximum score, but it is still +8.84% greater than the current Geekbench multi-core performance champion, the 64-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X. Once again, generational improvements are at work here, as the Zen 2 Ryzen Threadripper 3990X could rely on clock rates of 2.90 GHz to 4.3 GHz while the Zen 3 EPYC 7513 chugged along on a more pedestrian 2.60 GHz with frequency measurements reading at around 1.79 GHz.
There’s certainly more power reserves to be harnessed in the AMD EPYC 7513, which has a reported clock range of 2.6 GHz to 3.65 GHz, operates on a 200 W TDP, and it has 128 MB L3 cache (16 MB L2). The EPYC 7513 might be a less powerful variant of the EPYC 7543 that also recently produced an amazing result on Geekbench, but it can certainly crank out impressive results when working in an ideal environment with a fellow 32-core Milan part.
