Take it with a grain of salt, but one of the first benchmark results of AMD's Rome has hit the Internet. ChipHell has a score
of the 64-core, 128-threaded AMD EPYC "Rome" processor. As you may know, this is a 7nm server chip that is expected to hit the market in 2019. It's based on the Zen 2 architecture and if the leak is accurate, engineering samples are currently making the rounds among AMD's partners.
The huge number of cores results in a massive Cinebench score:
The score is rather impressive at 12587cb. In the table you can see this score puts serious shade on the competition. A much closer unlisted competitor is the stock Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX (32C/64T) at 5500cb, and this chip has been pushed to its extremes to achieve 8543cb on LN2.
