AMD 2nd Generation EPYC processor projected SPECrate®2017_int_base performance scores are developed using computer modeling of each processors rev B0 which is then adjusted for the individual targeted frequency. For EPYC 7282, 7272 and 7252, estimated configurations have 4x channels per socket of DDR2666 memory, and all other models have 8x channels per socket of DDR3200. All estimates use the AOCC compiler. Projected score only, actual results may vary. Results may vary with production silicon testing. AMD EPYC 7742 SPECrate®2017_int_base projected score of 625 vs. EPYC 7601 of 304 in June 2019 at http://spec.org/cpu2017/results/res2019q2/cpu2017-20190411-11817.pdf. 625 / 304 = 2.056 = 2x the performance.
