ASUS Sets Most World Records for Single-Socket and Dual-Socket Server Performance on


ASUS scores 578 records for top performance across multiple architectures and platforms in intensive computing workloads

TAIPEI, Taiwan, March 9, 2020 ASUS, a leading server systems, server motherboards, and workstations provider, today announced that ASUS servers continue to dominate computing performance with a total of 578 new world-record benchmark results confirmed by the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC, ASUS holds 30% more #1 results than any other server vendor, ranking as the most world record holder on the SPEC CPU® 2017 benchmark in single-socket (1P) and dual-socket (2P). These world records are set by servers running across Intel® and AMD® platforms, including the 1st and 2nd Gen Intel Xeon® Scalable processors, Intel Xeon E-2200 processors and AMD EPYC™ 7002 processors and workloads ranging from general business infrastructure, software-defined deployment, data analytics, AI, and HPC (High Performance Computing). These results are correct as of March 4, 2020.

ASUS RS500A-E10 and RS700A-E9 V2 rack servers with AMD EPYC 7002 processors

ASUS servers with AMD EPYC 7002 processors currently hold an incredible 102 world records. This total consists of 64 #1 results for single-socket performance, plus 38 #1 results for dual-socket performance across all SPEC CPU 2017 benchmarks, including integer rate, floating-point rate, integer speed and floating-point speed.

All these latest world records are set on ASUS RS500A-E10 and RS700A-E9 V2 series servers equipped with the EPYC 7002 processors that deliver 2x performance and 4x floating-point capacity versus the previous 7001 generation, with support for up to 64 cores, 128 threads, 8-channel DDR4 3200 and 128 PCIe® 4.0 lanes, and ideal for AI inference, virtualization, VDI, analytics and software-defined deployments.

RS500A-E10 and RS700A-E9 V2 single-socket and dual-socket rack servers are designed with a unique power supply, storage capability and networking expansion options to suit various workloads and applications.
