The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX with 32 cores is an intriguing processor. I’ve been asked about performance for numerical computing and decided to find out how well it would do with my favorite benchmark the “High Performance Linpack” benchmark. This is used to rank Supercomputers on the Top500 list. It is not always simple to run this test since it can require building a few libraries from source. This includes the all important BLAS library which AMD has optimized in their BLIS package. I give you a complete How-To guide for getting this running to see what the 2990WX is capable of.
