AMD Zen Based Naples SoC Benchmarks Leaked – 32 Core, 64 Thread Server Platform
AMD Naples is the codename for the company’s upcoming server platform based the much anticipated Zen architecture. This is a dual socket platform that features 32 Zen cores per CPU. Recently, the Naples SoC benchmarks appeared on Geekbench database that revealed some additional info on the product.
Before we go ahead, keep in mind that we’re looking at engineering samples of the Naples SOC so the results might change when the platform launches. The platform here has a specific codename 2S1451A4VIHE4_29/14_N. Being dual socket, this Zen based Naples SoC utilizes two processors which make up a total of 64 cores on the platform. The chips feature a base clock of 1.44GHz and boost clock of 2.9GHz.
The Naples SoC benchmarks show that the platform has a CPU complex with four cores that are connected to 8MB of L3 cache. So the Zen based 32 cores are likely to feature up to 64MB of L3 cache. Other specs include an “AMD Corporation Diesel” codenamed motherboard and 128GB of DDR4 memory.
The Naples SoC platform scores 1141 Points in single-threaded and 15620 points in multi-threaded performance tests. Once again, I want to mention that the product is still a few months away from launch so you should better take these results with a grain of salt.
This 32 core, 64 thread Naples SoC will power high-performance computing tasks. According to AMD, the server platform will achieve performance parity with Intel thanks to Zen based processors. AMD Naples SoC is set to roll out in Q2 2017, only a few months after Summit Ridge desktop processors.
