    Phoronix: A Look At How The Linux Performance Has Evolved Since The AMD EPYC Launch

    With next-generation EPYC processors expected to be released next quarter, it's a good time to see how the performance of the original EPYC 7601 32-core / 64-thread processor's performance has evolved on Linux since its 2017 launch. This article is looking at the performance of an AMD EPYC 7601 Tyan server when running Ubuntu 17.04 as the newest stable Ubuntu release when EPYC was originally introduced in June 2017 compared to the performance when running the new Ubuntu 19.04 as well as jumping ahead to running the in-development Linux 5.2 kernel release. Additionally, the Ubuntu 19.04 + Linux 5.2 kernel configuration when also disabling Spectre mitigations.

    I think "Ubuntu 16.04 + Linux 5.2 + No Spec" in the graphs should be "Ubuntu 19.04 + Linux 5.2 + No Spec".

          FS operations: as much as twice as fast!

          Glad to be an AMD customer right now. They performed adequately at launch, and now they're stellar.

                Times kernel compilation is around 30's seconds but when I truly build a kernel with Intel NHM, SNB, SKL processors, it takes 20-30 minutes !

                  Ryzen and EPYC vs Skylake++++. It's just like the early 2000's all over again, when it was Athlon64/Opteron vs Netburst trash & dead-end Itanium. AMD FTW!

                    I don't care about misspelled words, but when Ubuntu 16 wins most benchmarks, a typo isn't the first explanation that comes to mid.
