Video : Review of an AWS Graviton2 ARM server

Recommended Posts

Hi all.
I've just finished a new video where I review an Amazon AWS Graviton2 arm64 server.
This is a monster with 64 high-performance N1 cores.
It isn't clocked that high at 2.5Ghz, but it performs amazing for that clockspeed.
Here is my video.

Here all the info I've gathered.

AWS Server 32-cores 128GB

NEOVERSE N1 64-core AWS Graviton2
ARMv8.2 aarch64
Arm’s Neoverse N1 cores -> based on A76 -> almost identical to Arm’s 64-core reference N1 platform -> CPU cores are clocked a bit lower 2.5GHz and only 32MB instead of 64MB of L3 cache
Max speed 2500Mhz
8-channel DDR-3200
128GB ram
64 PCIe4 lanes
TSMC’s 7nm process node
~1W per core at the 2.5GHz frequency
between 80W as a low estimate to around 110W estimation. This info is not disclosed by AWS

SBC bench : http://ix.io/2FrG

Internet speed test between 1500 Mbit/s and 2000 Mbit/s both up- and download (up to 250MB/s)

I had 32-cores of the 64-cores. It is expected to perform a bit worse per core with 64-cores vs 32-cores since less cache available per core.

There's a newer Ampere 80-core N1 at 3Ghz SoC.  


Thank you to @lanefu for giving me access to this.
