GIGABYTE Smashes 11 World Records with New AMD EPYC 7002 Processors

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.

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.

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 4 TB 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 8x PCIe Gen 4.0 expansion slots and 2x 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 2 TB 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 6x 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.
