The NWChem open-source computational chemistry software is one of the HPC workloads that scales well but not too efficiently right now at 128+ cores, at least with the benchmarking model used. Here with NWChem the EPYC 9374F was exhibiting terrific generational uplift over the EPYC 75F3 while in the 2P configuration hitting the top of the pack. Xeon Scalable Ice Lake was no competition with the Xeon Platinum 8362/8380 CPUs not even matching the prior generation EPYC 75F3.

During NWChem, the EPYC 9374F average power consumption was 243 Watts to the Xeon Platinum 8362 at 264 Watts and the Xeon Platinum 8380 at 269 Watts.

The Xeon Platinum CPUs also failed to compete on price with NWChem.

The generational uplift from the EPYC 75F3 to EPYC 94F3 continued to prove phenomenal across a wide range of HPC workloads. In some of these HPC test cases, a lone EPYC 9374F in power determinism mode could approach the Xeon Platinum 8362 in a 2P configuration.
