Energy-Efficiency Meets Performance: How We Chose Ryzen 9 CPUs for Our Dedicated Server Line Up

Energy Efficiency Meets Performance How We Chose Ryzen 9 CPUs for Our Dedicated Server Line Up

In the ever-evolving landscape of web hosting, innovation is the driving force behind exceptional service. As announced in our last blog post we are delighted to launch our new Dedicated Server equipped with the new Ryzen 9 7900 processor – Energy-Efficiency Meets Performance.

This is yet another proof of our commitment to deliver top-tier hosting solutions that prioritize performance, reliability, and energy efficiency while staying affordable. In this article, we will have a close look at the reasons behind this strategic move. We will explore the exceptional capabilities of Ryzen 9 CPUs, and show how this choice elevates the value we provide to our valued customers. Join us for a deep dive into the exciting world of dedicated server hosting, where, with Ryzen 9 7900 energy-efficiency meets unparalleled performance.

Ryzen 9 7900 CPU Specs

Let us start by taking a closer look at the heart of our new Dedicated Server tier. The Ryzen 9 7900 CPU. This powerful processor boasts an impressive 12 cores and 24 threads. This makes it a true powerhouse for multitasking and resource-intensive applications. With a substantial number of cores and threads, it can effortlessly handle demanding workloads and provide exceptional performance.

When it comes to power consumption, you might expect that a processor with such robust capabilities would consume a significant amount of energy. However, the Ryzen 9 7900 manages to strike a remarkable balance. Its Thermal Design Power (TDP), which signifies the maximum power consumption under load, is kept in check at just 65 watts. This means that despite its high-performance capabilities, it will not unnecessarily drain power resources.

What sets the Ryzen 9 CPUs apart is the Precision Boost 2 technology. This dynamic frequency adjustment feature optimizes clock speeds. This will help delivering a performance boost when needed and conserving energy during periods of lower demand. Furthermore, the Infinity Fabric technology, which is exclusive to AMD processors, is a provides a high-speed interconnection between the CPU and various components. This includes things like the RAM, to enhance its performance and efficiency.

Energy efficiency is more than just a buzzword. It is a core principle that benefits everyone involved – Zumiv, the environment, and, most importantly, our customers.

From Zumiv perspective, utilizing energy-efficient hardware like the Ryzen 9 CPUs means lower operational costs. Reduced power consumption directly translates to cost savings, and we are passing these benefits on to our customers. It is a win-win situation where both Zumiv and our clients benefit from this efficient technology.

Moreover, environmental sustainability is a priority in today’s world. The reduced power consumption of our Ryzen 9-powered servers contributes to a smaller carbon footprint. By choosing energy-efficient hardware, we are actively participating in eco-friendly practices. This helps to reduce the overall environmental impact of our operations.

For our customers, the advantages are clear. Not only do they benefit from cost-effective hosting services, but they also get to take part in a greener, more sustainable hosting solution. It is a choice that aligns with modern values and practical benefits.


Performance Benchmarks

Now, let us address the elephant in the room – the performance benchmarks.

PassMark CPU Score

One of the most widely recognized and trusted measures of CPU performance is the PassMark CPU Score. This benchmark provides a numeric representation of a processor’s performance by assessing its ability to handle various computing tasks. The score is calculated based on an extensive suite of tests. They include mathematical operations, compression, encryption, and more, providing a comprehensive view of a CPU’s capabilities. When it comes to assessing CPU performance, the PassMark CPU Score is the gold standard.

Now let us talk about what these scores really mean:

Ryzen 9 7900: With a PassMark CPU Score of 49,357 points, it demonstrates exceptional overall performance. This means it stands out in a wide variety of computing tasks and can handle demanding applications with ease.

The Ryzen 7 7700: Scoring 35,155 points, it offers solid performance, suitable for a range of tasks, though not as powerful as the Ryzen 9 7900.

Ryzen 9 3900: Scoring 30,883 points, it delivers respectable performance but falls behind the Ryzen 7 7700 and Ryzen 9 7900 in terms of overall computational capability.

As you can see, the Ryzen 9 7900 got the highest score out of the three tested CPUs.  That’s one of the reasons why we chose this specific CPU to power our new Dedicated Server tier. The second reason is the very impressive energy efficiency, especially when compared to its competitors.

Money- Weighted PassMark CPU Score

The PassMark CPU rating are never the only factor in taking a decision, everything ultimately boils down to prices. This is why during the selection process we ran an extensive market analysis during which we calculated how much performance one obtains per buck spent. Here is a sneak peek from our internal documents, showing how the Ryzen 9 7900 based server rates against comparable solutions on the market:

This enables us to state that the AMD 12 Cores dedicated server from Zumiv is the very best server you can get from 69.99 / mo.

Another reason for our choice is the very impressive energy efficiency, also when compared to its competitors.

Let us take a look at the TDP comparison now:

TDP Comparison with Other 12-Core Processors

Now, let us get into the TDP comparison. The TDP is a critical factor when it comes to energy efficiency and managing heat. Let’s compare the TDP values of the three 12-core processors from AMD.

What is TDP?

TDP, or Thermal Design Power, is a critical metric used to describe a processor’s maximum heat dissipation or power consumption under normal operating conditions. It’s an essential factor for both energy efficiency and managing the heat generated by a CPU.


Where Does TDP Come From?

TDP is primarily determined by the design and architecture of the processor. It considers factors like the number of cores, clock speed, and the overall efficiency of the CPU’s microarchitecture. A higher-performing CPU typically has a higher TDP because it’s designed to handle more demanding tasks, which, in turn, generates more heat.

Ryzen 9 7900: This processor impressively has the lowest TDP among the three, coming in at just 65 watts. This means it is incredibly energy efficient. And that is a big win for Zumiv, the environment, and our customers.

The Ryzen 7 7700: In contrast, the Ryzen 7 7700 is a bit of a power hog, with a TDP of 170 watts. This higher power consumption not only affects energy costs but also requires stronger cooling solutions, potentially driving up operating expenses.

Ryzen 9 3900: The Ryzen 9 3900 falls in the middle with a TDP of 120 watts. It strikes a balance between energy efficiency and performance.

To connect the dots, remember that TDP is closely tied to energy efficiency, as discussed in the “Energy Efficiency: A Win-Win-Win” section. It is worth noticing that the Ryzen 9 7900 manages to have the lowest TDP while also achieving the highest PassMark CPU Score, proving its capability in both energy efficiency and top-notch performance.

Benchmark Conclusion

In wrapping up our benchmark exploration, let us recap our discoveries:

The Ryzen 9 7900 is the star of the show, scoring the highest with a PassMark CPU Score of 49,357 points, which indicates outstanding overall performance. What is remarkable is that it achieves this while sipping just 65 watts of power, making it super energy efficient.

Ryzen 7 7700 delivers reliable performance with a PassMark CPU Score of 35,155 points but is a bit of a power guzzler with a TDP of 170 watts.

The Ryzen 9 3900 offers decent performance with a PassMark CPU Score of 30,883 points and a TDP of 120 watts, striking a balance between energy efficiency and capability.
