Power Consumption




For fun, I wanted to see how some synthetic gaming benchmarks would run on the system, and as you might expect, enterprise CPUs aren't designed for gaming. The advances made to improve extremely high core count CPUs impede the performance of lightly or single-threaded programs.



HandBrake uses only as many cores and threads as it needs, it doesn't utilize all cores, and in this case isn't that good on EPYC. None of this software is enterprise, so we didn't expect any wins, we only wanted to see how these programs are handled. The good news here is that power consumption is quite good, better than Thread Ripper, but that is a granted because of the lower TDP.
