    Phenomenal. With EPYC, 128 threads (virtual cores) are now within reach…for a price of course. We can now really begin to see how DragonFly scales.

    Has anyone tried DragonFly on Ryzen Threadripper? What a beast of a CPU.

    +1 for Francois to update the 3 year old benchmarks.

    You can rent (cheaply) an Epyc server too

    Wow, you can rent a fully maxed out (dedicated) Epyc server for about $500/month.

    That’s fantastic!

    Would be great to see these old benchmarks updated

    Nikki,

    Have you donated that amount to the project so they can use it to rent the Epyc server?

  6. Nikki says:

    Can you donate money specifically for said cause?

    If so, I’ll definitely donate $500.

    But if there is no garuntee my donation will be used for that cause – then no, I’m reluctant to donate.

  7. Yeah, I’d make sure there’s someone with time/interest in renting an Epyc server, first. Ask on IRC and see.
