This Dell PowerEdge server packing two AMD EPYC 7601 processors can build the Linux kernel in just 25 seconds!

Or for a larger code-base, LLVM can build on this dual EPYC server in two and a half minutes.

Along with code compilation, ray-tracing is another fun test on multi-core CPUs...

In the case of POV-Ray, the dual AMD EPYC processors yielded a run-time of just 12 seconds compared to 478 seconds at two cores.
