Good grief those are fast!!! My little Raspberry Pi takes in the 14k second range to finish one of the same tasks your pc is taking 2k seconds to finish!!!

Looks like the Intel iGPUs

Looks like the Intel iGPUs are 4-5x faster. Not bad for an ARM chip tho. Not really comparable to x86 processors since a 24c 1st gen EPYC is nearly just as fast (based on benchmarks) 

 

I agree with Keith, it’s likely the Ampere Altra since that’s the only 80 core ARM chip I’m aware of.

Yes indeed it is an Ampere Mt

Yes indeed it is an Ampere Mt Snow with an Altra Q80-30 CPU in it. They have an Altra Max CPU in the works which is 128 cores. Extremely loud for a 2U rack mount, so much so that I have to use hearing protection when its on.

Unfortunately the only Einstein aarch64 app I could find was the optimized BRP4 from N30dg-arm. He mentioned he was working on a FGRP app but I can't seem to find a link to download it.

That initial run only picked up 25 BRP4 tasks. I'll have to try loading up with more next time. I haven't tried doing Rosetta work on it yet, although it has registered over there. Advantek are a UK reseller as far as I know.

Yes, that is true, but it is the OWNER of those rigs on ROSETTA that would probably happily answer a "private message" if you want/need more info.
