EPYC 64cores ES: ~740FPS(single) ~998FPS(dual) [UPDATED]
« on: March 28, 2020, 10:53:10 am »
I've just tested AMD EPYC 64cores Engineering Sample CPU '100-000000053-04', got at eBay.

Motherboard:   Supermicro H11DSi-NT Rev. 1.01 (with self-modified R2.1 BIOS for Zen2 Rome)
CPU:   Dual AMD Eng Sample 100-000000053-04, boosted ~2.7GHz(SMT-on), ~3.0GHz(SMT-off), 64 Core
RAM:   DDR4-2666 2R(Dual Rank) 8GB x16
GPU:   Quadro RTX 4000
Camera Benchmark:   ~720FPS(SMT-on) ~998FPS(SMT-off) [UPDATE: I've replaced the sceenshots with the one by KeyShot 9.3.14]
CAUTION: H11DSi-NT(=dual CPU motherboard) with single '100-000000053-04' could not boot up, In my experience.

Motherboard:   Supermicro H11SSL-i Rev. 2.0
CPU:   Single AMD 64cores Eng Sample 100-000000053-04, boosted ~2.7GHz(SMT-on)
RAM:   DDR4-3200 2R(Dual Rank) 16GB x8
GPU:   GeForce GT710
Camera Benchmark:   ~740FPS

I had expected that dual ES '100-000000053-04' would exceed 1000FPS easily, but no.
Disabling SMT(Simultaneous Multithreading) is a workaround, but it affects V-ray bench and CINEBENCH negatively.
So, KeyShot may have some issue about thread control over 128 threads...
[UPDATE: KeyShot 9.3.14 realtime mode may still have issue, but now it seems that KeyShot Vierwer 9.3.14 can handle 256 threads properly... I'll post about it later.]

I also can't believe this didn't crack 1000. Has anyone been able to achieve that yet?

Or maybe Windows does? https://www.anandtech.com/show/15483/amd-threadripper-3990x-review/3

Thanks...hmm, Win10 Pro for Workstations (or Enterprise)... I still hope the solution built-in KeyShot under Win10 Pro(not "for Workstations")!

In the KeyShot 9.2 Beta Discussion section, I've just post the results of the benchmark built in KeyShot Viewer 9.2.71:

I've modified the first post on this thread and as described there, now It looks that KeyShot Viwer 9.3.14 Benchmark can handle 256 threads properly...better than 9.2.86, at least.

Motherboard:   Supermicro H11DSi-NT Rev. 1.01 (with self-modified R2.1 BIOS for Zen2 Rome)
CPU:   Dual AMD Eng Sample 100-000000053-04, boosted ~2.7GHz(SMT-on), ~3.0GHz(SMT-off), 64 Core
RAM:   DDR4-2666 2R(Dual Rank) 8GB x16
GPU:   Quadro RTX 4000

CPU Benchmark: 13.66(SMT-off) -> 15.84(SMT-on)

Yes the Benchmark Tool was updated for 9.3 for more accurate, consistent results. Thanks for using it!
