GIGABYTE Smashes 11 World Records with New AMD EPYC™ 7002 Processor Systems

Tai­pei, Tai­wan, 20th August 2019 – GIGABYTE, a lea­ding ser­ver sys­tems buil­der which recent­ly released a total of 17 new AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series “Rome” ser­ver plat­forms simul­ta­ne­ous­ly with AMD’s own offi­ci­al launch of their next genera­ti­on CPU, is proud to announ­ce that our new sys­tems have alrea­dy bro­ken 11 dif­fe­rent SPEC® bench­mark world records. The­se new world records have not only been achie­ved against results from all alter­na­ti­ve pro­ces­sor based sys­tems but even against com­pe­ting ven­dor solu­ti­ons using the same 2nd Genera­ti­on AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series “Rome” pro­ces­sor plat­form, illus­tra­ting that GIGABYTE’s sys­tem design and engi­nee­ring is per­fec­t­ly opti­mi­zed to deli­ver the maxi­mum per­for­mance pos­si­ble from the 2nd Genera­ti­on AMD EPYC™.

The sys­tems used to break the world records were GIGABYTE’s dual socket R282-Z90 rack ser­ver, or GIGABYTE’s sin­gle socket R272-Z30 rack ser­ver, tog­e­ther with AMD’s new 64 core EPYC™ 7742 pro­ces­sor. The 11 new world records con­sist of the fol­lo­wing:

7 New SPEC CPU® 2017 Bench­mark World Records

SPEC CPU® 2017 are a set of bench­marks that mea­su­re com­pu­te inten­si­ve app­li­ca­ti­ons, with two main sub-cate­go­ries: SPE­Cra­te and SPEC­speed bench­marks. SPE­Cra­te bench­marks are a mea­su­re of through­put, and are ide­al for mea­su­ring mul­ti-thre­aded com­pu­te-inten­si­ve app­li­ca­ti­ons, such as High Per­for­mance Com­pu­ting (HPC) workloads. SPEC­speed bench­marks are a mea­su­re of speed and are ide­al for mea­su­ring sin­gle-thre­aded com­pu­te-inten­si­ve app­li­ca­ti­ons, such as High Fre­quen­cy Tra­ding (HFT) and other finan­ci­al indus­try workloads.

GIGABYTE’s R282 Series Ser­ver & AMD EPYC 7742 CPU: 8 New World Records

4 New SPEC­jbb® 2015 Bench­mark World Records

SPEC­jbb®2015 is a Java Busi­ness Bench­mark used for eva­lua­ting the per­for­mance of ser­vers run­ning typi­cal Enter­pri­se Java app­li­ca­ti­ons. It is based on a com­pa­ny with an IT infra­st­ruc­tu­re that hand­les a mix of point-of-sale requests, online purcha­ses and data-mining ope­ra­ti­ons. It is rele­vant to all audi­en­ces who are inte­rested in Java ser­ver per­for­mance, inclu­ding JVM ven­dors, hard­ware deve­lo­pers, Java app­li­ca­ti­on deve­lo­pers, rese­ar­chers and mem­bers of the aca­de­mic com­mu­ni­ty.

GIGABYTE’s R272 Series Ser­ver & AMD EPYC 7742 CPU: 3 New World Records

About the Sys­tems Used for The World Record Brea­king Bench­marks

GIGABYTE’s R282-Z90 is a 2U gene­ral pur­po­se rack mount ser­ver, fea­turing dual 2nd Genera­ti­on AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series pro­ces­sors for up to 128 cores and 256 threads per sys­tem, 32 DIMM slots for up to 4TB of DDR4 memo­ry, with a front / rear sto­rage capa­ci­ty of 12 x 3.5″ and 2 x 2.5″ SATA / SAS hot-swap HDD/SSD dri­ves, and up to 8 x PCIe Gen 4.0 expan­si­on slots and 2 x OCP mez­za­ni­ne slots (inclu­ding an OCP type 3.0 slot) to accom­mo­da­te a lar­ge num­ber of add on cards / devices. The R282-Z90 offers a balan­ced archi­tec­tu­re of com­pu­te, memo­ry and sto­rage for opti­mum per­for­mance to sup­port deman­ding workloads. It is ide­al to build soft­ware defi­ned and vir­tua­li­zed infra­st­ruc­tures or sup­port high per­for­mance app­li­ca­ti­ons such as data­ba­se ana­ly­tics.

GIGABYTE’s R272-Z30 is a 2U gene­ral pur­po­se rack mount ser­ver, fea­turing a sin­gle 2nd Genera­ti­on EPYC™ 7002 Series pro­ces­sor for up to 64 cores and 128 threads, 16 DIMM slots for up to 2TB of DDR4 memo­ry, with a front / rear sto­rage capa­ci­ty for 12 x 3.5″ and 2 x 2.5″ SATA / SAS hot-swap HDD/SSD dri­ves, and up to 6 x PCIe Gen 4.0 / Gen 3.0 expan­si­on slots as well as an OCP mez­za­ni­ne slot to accom­mo­da­te a lar­ge num­ber of add on devices. The R272-Z30 pro­vi­des a high per­for­mance sin­gle socket solu­ti­on desi­gned to increa­se ser­ver uti­li­za­ti­on rates and lower acqui­si­ti­on costs while unlo­cking capa­bi­li­ties and per­for­mance pre­vious­ly avail­ab­le only in dual socket archi­tec­tures.
