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….
