AMD Zen Based Naples SOC Benchmarks Revealed 32 Core Zen Chips, Clocked at 1.4 GHz Base with 2.9 GHz Boost
AMD Zen Based Naples SOC
Benchmarks for AMD Zen Based Naples SOC have been leaked on the web. AMD Naples is the codename for the upcoming server platform that would use the latest Zen based processors to power high-performance computing. AMD revealed that they have been able to accomplish performance parity with Intel with their new Zen core.
AMD Naples Dual Socket Platform with 32 Zen Cores Per CPU Benchmarked
The way in for the benchmark was made two days ago on Geekbench Database. The specific codename for this platform is 2S1451A4VIHE4_29/14_N. This is a dual-socket platform that uses two processors. Each chip has 32 cores which make up a total of 64 cores on the Naples platform. The chips are clocked at 1.44 GHz base and 2.9 GHz boost clocks as identified OPN.
Throughout the recent run down on the architectural details for Zen, we see that the core consists of a CPU complex. Each CPU complex has four cores that are connected to 8 MB of L3 cache. From the looks of it, Zen based server chips with 32 cores can feature up to 64 MB of L3 cache which is quite troublesome. This along with 64 threads available for hyper-threaded workloads would make for a very competitive product in server platforms
The motherboard for Naples platform is codenamed “AMD Corporation Diesel”. The platform is featuring 128 GB of DDR4 memory. In Geekbench 4 performance tests, the platform scored 1141 Points in single-threaded and 15620 points in multi-threaded. We couldn’t find as like Intel Xeon platform for comparison at Geekbench due to clock differences. These benchmarks are not representative of final performance for Naples as it still has a long way to go before launch. AMD has already declared that Naples will be shipping in Q2, on hand just a few months after Summit Ridge for desktops.
AMD Naples SOC For Server Will Roll Out in Q2 2017 – 32 Core / 64 Thread Monster Chips
AMD would plan to introduce it to the server market just a few months after the desktop launch. AMD also showcased their 32 core / 64 threads Naples platform which are intended at the workstation 2P/2S (dual socket) market. AMD is also making the plan to bring Zen+ chips built on a 7nm process with 48 cores later in the roadmap.
A 2 socket solution should come up with a total of 64 cores and 128 threads along with denser memory capacities that make Opteron. We would also see next generation HPC server chips which combine 32 high-performance cores together with massive Vega GPUs that will be used to crunch FP64 calculations. That has been in the plans for quite some time and with Naples rolling out in Q2 2017, we might see it sometime around 2018.
