PRESS RELEASE

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.

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.
