The NAMD performance was flat across the tested EPYC configurations.

HMMer meanwhile was another scientific (molecular biology) program seeing better performance from 2017 to 2019 but with no changes after that point.

MAFFT meanwhile was among a few programs seeing slight regressions in the performance.

The Numpy performance has improved slightly for this widely-used numerical computing Python implementation.

Running Intel's MKL-DNN Math Kernel Library for neural networks was yielding much better performance on Ubuntu 19.04, likely due to the kernel and compiler improvements over the past two years.
