AMD’s EPYC Milan Breaks Cinebench Record, Here’s a 10nm Ice Lake Xeon Comparison

AMD Cinebench World Record

AMD’s EPYC Milan processors launched last month with 120 new world records to their credit in various applications, like HPC, Cloud, and enterprise workloads. But variants of these chips will eventually come to the market as Threadripper models for high end desktop PCs, and AMD’s server records don’t tell us too much about what we could expect from the PC chips. However, the company recently broke the Cinbench world record with its Milan chips, giving us at least an idea of what to expect in rendering work. Just for fun, we also ran a few tests on Intel’s new flagship 40-core Ice Lake Xeon chips to see how they stack up against not only AMD’s new record, but also a single AMD Threadripper processor.

During the latest episode of The Bring Up, an AMD YouTube video series, the company took two of its $7,980 EPYC Milan 7763 chips for a spin in Cinbench R23, a rendering application that AMD commonly uses for its desktop PC marketing, largely because it responds exceedingly well to AMD’s Zen architectures.

As a quick reminder, AMD’s flagship 7763 server chips come armed with the 64 Zen 3 cores and 128 threads apiece and have a 2.45 GHz base and 3.5 GHz boost frequency. All told, we’re looking at a Cinebench run with 128 cores and 256 threads, which you can see in the tweet below:

The dual 7763’s scored 113,631 points, while the previous world record weighed in at 105,570 (as per HWBot rankings). AMD says it used a reference server design with conventional air cooling for the test run, so there were no special accommodations or overclocking. The system peaked at 85C and 403W during the test run. Here’s AMD’s official HWBot world record submission

1K Unit Price / RCP Cores / Threads Base / Boost – All Core (GHz) L3 Cache (MB) TDP (W)
AMD EPYC Milan 7763 $7,890 64 / 128 2.45 / 3.5 256 280
Intel Xeon Platinum 8380 $8,099 40 / 80 2.3 / 3.2 – 3.0 60 270
