    Phoronix: Intel Xeon Scalable "Cascade Lake" Processors Launch - Initial Xeon Platinum 8280 Linux Benchmarks

    Intel's 2nd Gen Xeon Scalable Cascade Lake processors are officially launching today! Last month we were briefed out at one of Intel's campuses in Oregon and have been testing the new Xeon Platinum 8280 processors in recent days. In this article is a look at what's new with Cascade Lake as well as our preliminary Ubuntu Linux performance figures for the Xeon Platinum 8280 processors.

    I'm curious though .. are these Spectre vulnerabilities really fixed, or did Intel just stop advertising that they're vulnerable? Can this be tested?
    Also, the RAMSpeed numbers: did all systems in the chart use the same memory speed? Otherwise the results are not really comparable.

      Damn these performance numbers are all over the place.
      It seems to me the real benefit of the Intel option is having quad-socket motherboards. But if AMD manages to fix their memory issues for next-gen Epyc, they might be the clear winner no matter what.

        The datacenter guys I talk to aren't looking at multi-socket designs anymore, They want more cores in a single socket. Less heat to disperse, less power overall. More flexibility with capital expenses.

        And if by chance you see them out there, say hi to Arjan and the rest of the Clear Linux team.

          I was out there last month. I didnt go to the Intel event today due to complications this week and busy benchmarking...
          afaik today's event was same material from last month.

            Thanks for the initial benchmarks. Some AI workloads that test out VNNI would be very helpful as well.

                While the POWER9 CPUs are popular with some Linux users for having the possibility of a fully open-source computer when paired with the likes of the Raptor Talos II, in most of the tests the performance of this 176-thread POWER9 server was not competitive with the tested Xeon Scalable and EPYC hardware.
                Power9 is also vastly cheaper though, correct? Hundreds of dollars per CPU compared to thousands of dollars per CPU in some cases, correct?

                  The mentioned CPU's prices are available on https://secure.raptorcs.com/content/base/products.html

                  A 22-core one currently costs $2600.

                    Oh the irony, Intel using "glue"?
