AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5965WX Memory Scaling Benchmarks On Linux

Written by Michael Larabel in Memory on 16 August 2022. Page 3 of 3. 24 Comments

Hopefully these benchmark results are worthwhile if you were hesitant on whether to go straight for eight memory modules or not.

Or in the case of the WRF weather forecasting benchmark, you need at least 64GB of RAM to just get started with the conus 2.5km model.

Long story short, it's worthwhile going for all eight memory channels with AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 series processors. Hopefully this hard data is useful if needing to quantify the benefit and/or justify the added expense. Overall the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5965WX continues running great under Linux and stay tuned for continued benchmarks on Phoronix.
