Here Is the AMD EPYC "Rome" C-Ray Demo

AMD has released a new live demo of its prototype 2nd generation AMD EPYC "Rome" 64 core 7nm CPU vs 2x Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M CPUs where the workload is C-Ray. C-Ray is a floating point intensive benchmark that renders images. The systems in the demo rendered a total of 3 images; a 1080p (HD), 1440p (QHD), and finally a 2160p (4K) image. The C-Ray version used in both systems during the demo is 1.2.0. The 1P AMD system was clearly faster than the 2P Intel system in this demo.

The AMD Rome Development Platform consisted of CPU: 1 x 64 core "Rome" SOC, Memory: 8 x 32GB DDR4 2667 DIMMs, Drive: 1TB SSD Samsung EVO 970, and OS version - Ubuntu 18.04.

The Intel Platform consisted of Chassis: Supermicro Model: SYS-1029U-TRTP, CPU: 2x Intel(R) Xeon(R) Platinum 8180M CPU @2.50GHz, Speed: 2500MHz, Total Cores/Threads: 56/112, Memory: 24xDIMM - 32BG = 768GB, Speed 2666 MHz, Manufacturer: Samsung, Drive: Samsung 970 EVO 1TB - NVME, OS version - Ubuntu 18.04
