AMD EPYC 7003 "Milan" Linux Benchmarks - Superb Performance

Filed under

It's been one and a half years already since the EPYC 7002 "Rome" processors launched. It's hard to think it's been that long due not only to the pandemic but the incredible performance of these Zen 2 server processors. The EPYC 7002 series continues to largely outperform Intel's Xeon Scalable processors and while Ice Lake is coming soon, for now AMD is expanding their lead with today's EPYC 7003 "Milan" processor launch. We have begun our testing of AMD EPYC Milan processors in recent weeks under Linux and have preliminary performance figures to share today as well as more information on these next-gen server/HPC processors.

  • Additional AMD EPYC 75F3 / 7713 / 7763 Linux Performance Benchmarks

    Complementing today's AMD EPYC 7003 series review with the initial testing on the EPYC 7F53, 7713, and 7763 processors, here are some additional raw data points in full for those interested in an even more diverse look at the performance.

    Now that the embargo has lifted on the EPYC 7003 performance data, data is being uploaded to as well as enabling the pre-launch testing I've been working on. So moving ahead there you will begin to see the AMD EPYC Zen 3 parts populated on the different pages.

The Third Time Charm Of AMD’s Milan Epyc Processors

  • The Third Time Charm Of AMD’s Milan Epyc Processors

    With every passing year, as AMD first talked about its plans to re-enter the server processor arena and give Intel some real, much needed, and very direct competition and then delivered again and again on its processor roadmap, it has gotten easier and easier to justify spending at least some of the server CPU budget with Intel’s archrival in the X86 computing arena. And with the launch of the third generation “Milan” Epyc 7003 processors, it is going to get that much easier.

    This is the X86 server processor that customers no doubt will wish AMD had delivered many, many years ago.

    But don’t get confused. Things getting easier does not mean easy, and one need look no further than the financial results quarter after quarter of Intel’s Data Center Group to see that the Epyc comeback has not been as easy as the Opteron offensive a decade and a half ago. Enthusiasm for AMD’s X86 server processors has been tempered by a lot of factors, not the least of which being that Intel is a much larger supplier of compute, networking, and storage here in 2021 than it was back in the heyday of the Opterons back in the middle 2000s. As messed up as Intel’s roadmaps and manufacturing might be in the past few years, it is nowhere near as bad as the decision to make Itanium, a chip not really compatible with the Xeon, its 64-bit computing choice for the future, deprecating the Xeon to 32-bit status and 4 GB memory addressing stasis. That decision, coupled with a very fine Opteron processor with multi-core baked into the design, HyperTransport interconnect for processors and memory, integrated memory and I/O controllers in the system-on-chip, and 64-bit memory and processor extensions for the X86 instruction set ­– things that are absolutely normal in the Epyc and Xeon SP lines today, gave AMD an opening in the datacenter that frankly was not hard to exploit.

  • How to install go1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04 – NextGenTips

    In this tutorial, we are going to explore how to install go on Ubuntu 22.04 Golang is an open-source programming language that is easy to learn and use. It is built-in concurrency and has a robust standard library. It is reliable, builds fast, and efficient software that scales fast. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel-type systems enable flexible and modular program constructions. Go compiles quickly to machine code and has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. In this guide, we are going to learn how to install golang 1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04. Go 1.19beta1 is not yet released. There is so much work in progress with all the documentation.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
