AMD Rome Second Generation EPYC Review: 2x 64-core Benchmarked

https://www.anandtech.com/print/14694/a ... yc-2nd-gen
The analysis begins mild and ends enthusiastic, concluding that AMD will probably achieve it's plans on the server market and more. Performance is good and value is excellent, specially for the lower end servers, that have no disabled capabilities - i.e., can talk to all 128 PCI-e 4.0 lanes.

Updated: Userbenchmark Responds to Criticism Over Score Weighing Revisions
...
This has riled AMD fans, but the issue actually impacts the rankings for all processors, as evidenced by the test result above. Due to the $120 quad-core Intel Core i3-8100's higher boost frequency, it beats Intel's $2,000 18-core 36-thread Core i9-9980XE in the rankings. It doesn't take a degree in computer science to see the obvious disconnect here.

TL;DR - it's a trash site, used by people who don't know what they're doing.

A detailed look at AMD’s new Epyc “Rome” 7nm server CPUs
Epyc "Rome" continues its little sibling the Ryzen 3000's mad dash forward.
by Jim Salter - Aug 9, 2019 4:20pm BRT

When AMD debuted the 7nm Ryzen 3000 series desktop CPUs, they swept the field. For the first time in decades, AMD was able to meet or beat its rival, Intel, across the product line in all major CPU criteria—single-threaded performance, multi-threaded performance, power/heat efficiency, and price. Once third-party results confirmed AMD's outstanding benchmarks and retail delivery was a success, the big remaining question was: could the company extend its 7nm success story to mobile and server CPUs?

AMD is firmly in the middle of this mess:
GlobalFoundries Sues TSMC & 19 Others For Alleged Patent Infringement
By Ramish Zafar / Aug 26

American semiconductor fabricator GlobalFoundries made news last year when it announced that it was bowing out of the 7nm race. GlobalFoundries was AMD’s attempt at in-house chip fabrication, but unfortunate timing for the project didn’t let it reach full potential. Today, in a press release, GlobalFoundries has announced that it’s suing Taiwanese fab TSMC for violation of patents. Take a look below for more details.

GlobalFoundries Sues TSMC And Its Customers For Infringing On 16 Of The Fab’s Patents
In an interesting development, GlobalFoundries has decided to sue TSMC, Apple, Qualcomm, Broadcom, nVidia and other companies for violating its patents. The primary target of the fab’s lawsuit is TSMC, as GloFo claims that the Taiwanese fab has violated no less than 16 patents. Additionally, since Apple and other companies are the ones that import products with TSMC’s products, they’re also in GlobalFoundries’ crosshairs.
This at a moment that TSMC is essential to AMD finally catching up Intel. Everything Global Foundries was never able to do.

TSMC Responds to Lawsuit by GlobalFoundries: Allegations Are Baseless

https://www.anandtech.com/show/14800/ts ... e-baseless
TSMC's statement:
The statement by TSMC reads as follows:

TSMC is in the process of reviewing the complaints filed by GlobalFoundries on August 26, but is confident that GlobalFoundries’ allegations are baseless. As a leading innovator, TSMC invests billions of dollars each year to independently develop its world-class, leading-edge semiconductor manufacturing technologies. As a result, TSMC has established one of the largest semiconductor portfolios with more than 37,000 patents worldwide and a top 10 ranking for US patent grants for 3 consecutive years since 2016. We are disappointed to see a foundry peer resort to meritless lawsuits instead of competing in the marketplace with technology. TSMC is proud of its technology leadership, manufacturing excellence, and unwavering commitment to customers. We will fight vigorously, using any and all options, to protect our proprietary technologies.
This is a weird lawsuit, as foundries usually buy equipment from third parties and also they have to make this tech into a production line, the hard part of it all. AFAIK GF never had a technological leadership in the market, be it on product development or production.

And they sold lots of assets recently, as in are giving up the game. This looks a bit like an exit strategy, using their patent portfolio for what it's worth.
