    Phoronix: A Look At The Xeon Gold 6138 + Tyan GT24E-B7106 1U Linux Server Performance

    Last week I began testing the Tyan GT24E-B7106, a 1U barebones server designed for Intel's new Xeon Scalable processors. I am still carrying out many benchmarks of the Tyan GT24E-B7106 paired with two of the Xeon Gold 6138 CPUs, but for those curious about the Linux performance potential of this server when slotting in 96GB of DDR4-2666 RDIMMs and these two CPUs that yield a combined total of 40 cores / 80 threads, here are some initial benchmarks.

    Thanks for running these benchmarks and for using Clear Linux, which has much better open-source tuning for newer chips than older versions of Ubuntu.

    Incidentally, if GROMACS is not in the PTS then you might want to add a newer version of it with AVX-512 support for additional testing. It's a popular HPC workload that AMD went out of its way to demonstrate at the Epyc launch. The AVX-512 performance numbers are extremely strong and it would be a good real-world test to show AVX-512 in action.

        2 questions, if you don't mind:

        1. Do you have to return this little beast?
        2. Have you got the EPYC server yet? it would be very interesting to put those 2 against each other..

          Huh. Seems kinda fast I guess. I suppose you could say 24.75s compile time is pretty quick.

            @ 2.5k ish per chip it bloody well should be

              I was promised LLVMpipe numbers!

                Yes, they are coming. LLVMpipe + SWR in its own article.

                  Sounds awesome! I've noticed that both LLVMpipe and SWR seem to use AVX extensively when available (well, SWR exclusively) I think it will be a slaughtering if you end up testing Epyc with them.

                    Well seeing anandtech data and some other enterprise sites reviews seems Skylake-X have a wider FPU but AMD Zeppelin FPU have more raw horse power, so far it seems in regular AVX loads dual Epycs piss all over dual Xeons but maybe intel can catch up with optimized binaries using AVX-512 or at least get closer.

                    Btw Michael if you test this compiling yourself make sure Epyc is optimized with GCC and/or Clang not ICC since the few tests lying around show ICC slows down Epyc(not a surprise to anyone LOL) performance but it boost around 25% the xeons. dunno is tricky to find a balance
