The C-Ray multi-threaded ray-tracer always loves a combination of many cores and high clock frequencies.

By the time of the second-generation EPYC processors, many of these ray-tracing benchmarks will finally need to be intensified due to rising core counts and architectural improvements. Just a few years back, it could take more than one minute for a Tachyon run.

The Java performance on EPYC is slightly lower than expected, but the current Intel CPUs are offering greater IPC performance than the first generation Zen CPUs.

The OpenSSL performance is in line with expectations.

A favorite test for many... building out the Linux kernel. The EPYC 7351P is able to produce a default-configured x86_64 Linux 4.13 kernel build in just under one minute.
