AMD’s 96 Core Epyc Genoa CPU faster than Intel’s Sapphire Rapid

Taken from the article “AMD’s 96 Core Epyc Genoa CPU is Over 70% Faster than Intel’s Xeon Sapphire Rapids Flagship in 2S Mode”

Linux kernel Compilation
….The dual Epyc 9554 (64 cores per socket) is 25-30% faster than the top Intel combo, while the Dual 9654 (96 cores per socket) is over 70% faster than the Sapphire Rapids-SP flagship….

Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM)
…..64-core Epyc 9554 pair is 25% faster than the latter makes it hard to defend the Intel offering. The Xeon Platinum 8490H mostly competes with the last-gen Milan and Milan-X flagships…..

MariaDB and Nginx
…..The Genoa parts are faster, with a lead of 10% to 40%, while the 64-core Milan-X deals with Sapphire Rapids….

AMD strong comeback

In the article from the next platform “AMD is finally trusted in the Datacentre again

AMD turned in the best quarter that we can remember, and is now firmly in place as the gadfly counterbalance to the former hegemony of Intel. And that is good for everyone who buys a game console, a PC, an edge device, and a server. And the game is only going to get more interesting with Intel getting its chip together and preparing for a long battle with AMD and other XPU usurpers in chip design and as well as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp in chip etching and packaging.

We do get some hints, however. Lisa Su, AMD’s president and chief executive officer, said that AMD’s datacenter business – at this point meaning Epyc CPUs and Instinct GPU accelerators – comprised more than 20 percent of the company’s overall sales, and the big driver in this quarter was not just second generation “Rome” Epyc 7002 and third generation “Milan” Epyc 7003 server chips – Rome is still outselling Milan, but the crossover is coming in the third quarter of this year – but the Radeon Instinct M100 GPU accelerators launched last fall. The datacenter GPU business more than doubled from a year ago, according to Su, and AMD expects it to continue to grow in the second half of the year as the 1.5 exaflops “Frontier” supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the United States, the as-yet-unnamed pre-exascale system at Pawsey Supercomputing Center in Australia, and the Lumi pre-exascale system in Finland all get their Radeon Instinct motors installed.
