Dual AMD EPYC 7742 setup destroys Geekbench Multithreaded Bench Beating Quad Intel Xeon 8189M Config

The folks over at Servethehome have done it again. While we were sitting here, getting impressed by Geekbench multithreaded scores in the low five figures, Servethehome ran the popular CPU benchmark on a monster setup with not one but TWO AMD EPYC 7742 processors together.

A quick recap on the EPYC 7742. This is a 64-core processor with 128 threads. It’s a clear step up from Threadripper and no longer aimed at consumer workloads. Instead, EPYC goes face to face with Intel on its home turf, the server market. Fun factoid: the server market is orders of magnitude larger than the consumer CPU market. This is why things over at Intel HQ are still very much business as usual despite AMD making huge headway in consumer sales in certain countries.  

The 7742 pairs those 64 cores with a massive 256 MB of cache. The cores are clocked at a fairly conservative 2.25 GHz for the base clock and 3.4 GHz for the boost clock. But considering the 225W TDP, this is perfectly alright. In fact, from a generational perspective, it’s nothing short of spectacular: the eight-core FX 9590, AMD’s last high-end play before Ryzen, ran a mere 8 cores with a similar 220W TDP. We now have 8 times as many CPU cores powered by the same amount of electricity.

What really has team blue sweating is the possibility that their large-scale server customers: companies like Google and Microsoft–might decide switch over to EPYC.   Servethehome’s benchmark results make a compelling case for them to do just that: With a Geekbench score in excess of 193,000, the dual EPYC 7742 setup is a full 25 percent faster than the 4x Intel Xeon Platinum server that held the previous Geekbench record.
