AMD Epyc Benchmark - I need your feedback!


Thanks to @HIVELOCITY for the opportunity to test a server properly that a lot have been waiting for.

Specs of this monster:

AMD EPYC 16-Core 7351P @ 2.4Ghz
128GB DDR4
4x960GB NVMe

I will be running benchmarks and then will open a new thread with the full benchmark sponsored by

For now, I would need you guys to tell me what sort of Benchmarks / scripts you would like me to run to test this server extensively.

Following this, as benchmarking servers and desktops is something I love to do, I will also post this on a new blog I am developing. Expect this to be posted somewhere else as well.

So what tests would you like me to run other than the normal Geekbench, ServerScope etc?

Server is installed but I am going to reinstall it with:

Latest Debian 64bit
Minimal installation

Lets get serious guys! :wink:

These systems support 128 PCIe lanes so I know the drive speeds will post impressive results.

  • fio tests for those drives
  • geekbench
  • network tests (up & down)

All I can really think of right now that I’d want to see


dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/zero

Initial tests indeed show this is a beast.

ffmpeg compilation is one of the first I like to try. also gcc compilation, though that doesn’t parallelize nearly as well.

Stockfish nodes/sec could be another interesting test.

Any special parameters needed or just default?

I just use the defaults. Make sure to specify the number of threads to use, of course. I guess I’d start with 32 for that processor since it’s the number of hardware threads.

Already done many benchmarks. Review should be posted tomorrow.

Cool. I’d be interested to know what applications anyone would run on a server like this. Splitting it into a pile of VMs seems to miss the point. I have occasionally wished for a huge server but most heavy compute stuff I do these days parallelizes ok to multiple smaller servers.

This server is very, very impressive I must say. Damn.

Could you run Geekbench?

Of course! Already have! :grin:


I can’t wait to hear the results.

Update, still running benchmarks. Should be ready tomorrow.

Morning, Miguel.

Morning Aidan. This has not been forgotten. I have completed the benchmarks and will be posting these today.
