Geekbench 6 (Single-Core)

Geekbench 6 is a benchmark for modern computers, notebooks and smartphones. What is new is an optimized utilization of newer CPU architectures, e.g. based on the big.LITTLE concept and combining CPU cores of different sizes. The single-core benchmark only evaluates the performance of the fastest CPU core, the number of CPU cores in a processor is irrelevant here.

Description of the processor

The AMD EPYC 9654 comes from the fourth generation of the AMD EPYC family. The processor was released by AMD in the fourth quarter of 2022. Already the official introductory price, which is 11805 US dollars, shows that the AMD EPYC 9654 is a processor for professional use. The AMD EPYC 9654 is used in high-performance servers and can be operated with both Windows and Linux-based operating systems.

The AMD EPYC 9654 is based on the Genoa (Zen 4) architecture and is manufactured with a structure width of 5 nanometers. It has a 96.00 megabyte level 2 cache and a 384.00 megabyte level 3 cache. The 64-bit processor supports the following ISA extensions: SSE4.2, AVX2, AVX-512, BFLOAT16, VNNI.

The processor is based on a standard core architecture with 96 physical cores and since the processor supports hyperthreading, the processor has a total of 192 computing threads at its disposal. The base clock of the 96 cores of the AMD EPYC 9654 is 2.40 gigahertz. In turbo mode, the processor can increase the clock rate to up to 3.70 gigahertz, but only when a single core is loaded. If all cores are loaded in parallel, the clock frequency is not much lower at 3.55 gigahertz.

An internal graphics unit is not integrated in the processor, since this is not required in the professional server area.

The AMD EPYC 9654 has a total of 12 memory channels over which a maximum bandwidth of 461 GB/s can be achieved. The processor can be equipped with up to 6144 gigabytes of RAM. It only supports DDR5 memory and the officially supported memory type is DDR5-4800. Memory with automatic error correction is of course also supported.
