Financial firms depend more than ever on computationally intensive workloads to compete and succeed. While many facets of IT hardware and infrastructure can affect application performance, Prowess Consulting examined the influence of the newest-generation system improvements to fuel application speed. To do this, we tested similar Dell™ PowerEdge™ R6525 and Dell PowerEdge R6625 platforms powered by 2nd and 4th Generation AMD EPYC™ processors, respectively.1
Our results showed marked improvements to benchmark performance and throughput for the PowerEdge R6625 server running the 4th Generation AMD EPYC processor. Our analysis also considered the qualitative performance and security features provided by the Dell™ platforms powered by AMD EPYC processors for the needs of financial firms.
