A Geekbench 4 submission today shows off the power of two AMD Epyc 7H12 64-core, 128-thread server-grade processors in one Cray Shasta supercomputer. AMD added the 7H12 to its second-gen Epyc line in September. 

AMD currently has three 64-core, 128-thread Epyc chips in its arsenal; although, more might be on the way. With a 2.6 GHz base clock and 3.3 GHz boost clock, the Epyc 7H12 is the fastest performer out of the three existing models. The chip is rated rated for 280W, which is 55W higher than the Epyc 7742, so the Epyc 7H12 should have a higher all-core turbo clock.

The Shasta was rocking two Epyc 7H12 processors, meaning it had 128 cores and 256 threads at its disposal. The system put up a single-core score of 4,512 points and a multi-core score of 181,580 points.
