    Where were you on the day AMD completely obliterated Intel's current server CPU stack?

    I dunno, the bit on Adored TV really freaked me a bit and got me to thinking we shouldn't be expecting this sort of thing to continue much longer. While it feels like the start of a new epoch, right now it's just one hella successful CPU that's been refined and binned for a long time now. If'n some rumors are true I'd expect things to continue for almost a year like they are before we start finding out there isn't a whole lot beyond Zen so far. :(

    AMD really need to gain market shares now. If they don't (or very little), what's the point... If I remember correctly, at one point Opteron was ahead of Xeon in a good numbers of metrics, and still they pushed very little volume and gained something close to nothing...

    It takes time for OEMs to build and qualify platforms for a line of CPUs.

    It took 18 months in 2003 when Opteron launched before the big OEMs (IBM, HP etc) had boxes with Opteron in them. Our hosting provider at the time immidiately deployed white box 1U servers because the value proposition was so much better.

    Cheers

    At minimum HP, Dell and Lenovo have systems built for rome, which were shown at the conference. HP and Lenovo servers available this month and Dell sometime in Fall.

    Qualifying a server platform can take more than 12 months.

    I think Epyc was launched two years ago to seed/build platforms for the 7002 series more than to make money in its own right.

    Cheers

    Since this benchmark is build with Intel's Fortran compiler, I see it still underutilizes AMD's architectures. My 6-core Broadwell-E scores 12.432 Hz @ 4GHz.

    In some ways, I don't like AMD having a really good CPU. :p I've been ready to buy a 3700x for a few weeks now, but both Amazon and Newegg never seem to have it in stock. Argh.

    They can't even bother linking to the video they took the data from?
