Can AMD EPYC 7601 beat the world record on Cinebench R15?

If the world record is currently held by Intel Xeon Platinum 8180 (28 cores, 56 threads), clocked at 2.5 GHz, can the new AMD EPYC 7601 processor reach or even exceed the same level?

We know already that AMD EPYC 7601, the most powerful processor of AMD in the server processors area can hit the 6879 on a Dual system.

It’s hard to say how much power a machine can grow, from a processor to two and then from two to four. The Platinum 8180 wins 46% (not 100% as the theory would have wished) when going from a 2P system (two processors) to a 4P system.

If AMD EPYC 7601 would gain so much by going to a Quad processor system, then it could reach the 10,000 points and beat the Platinum. However, further testing is already announcing the Xeon (whose turbo max is set at 3.8 GHz against 3.2 GHz for the EPYC) at more than 11,500 points.

Of course, the current version of AMD EPYC 7601 is limited to two sockets. We will have to wait until the next generation which will probably be able to be coupled to three other processors on a same motherboard, if not more.
