With Zen 2 specifically I'd like to see "multi-tasking" benchmarks to see how memory bandwidth limits or does not limit the Zen 2 cores. By multi-tasking, I often find myself running VMs, data analysis (intense FP arithmetic and RAM usage), web browser, ffmpeg (command line), and image editing/processing (GIMP if not hand written in C/C++ based languages) all at once. I'm not sure there is a single benchmark that can replicate these workloads but given that today people often have dozens of tabs in browsers along with several other mixed workload programs running it would be nice to see a benchmark that tests these together. With the Infinity Fabric and RAM clock divider coming into play I'd also like to see a more academic investigation into RAM latency as a function of RAM subtimings, IF clock, etc. For the 8+ core Ryzen parts, it would be interesting to look into thermal density. Did AMD design Zen 2 so one chiplet is fully loaded before the other gets any work to do? Will the I/O and cache die contribute a lot of heat (dependent on IF clock and voltage)? Depending on what you find this could rehash some old questions on TIM placement, heatpipe orientation on the base plate of a heatsink and etc. I'm not much of a gamer.
