    Phoronix: AMD EPYC 7642 Benchmarks

    Since the AMD EPYC 7002 series "Rome" launch at the beginning of August, it's been known how AMD's top-end (aside from the newly-announced EPYC 7H12) EPYC 7742 easily outperforms the Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 in most real-world benchmarks. The EPYC 7742 not only outperforms the Xeon Platinum 8280 in raw performance but also at a significantly lower cost and it gets even better with the EPYC 7642. We have been testing the EPYC 7642 48-core processors and even there the performance is generally ahead of a Xeon Platinum 8280 while being about half the cost of that flagship non-AP Intel Xeon Scalable Cascadelake processor.

    These aren't real-world benchmarks. You should only test Microsoft Excel and Windows Media Player.

        The proof will be in enterprise purchasing in 2020.

        Many large corporates are aligning their next large asset purchases around RHEL 8 and Rome.

        Look for a large number of price reductions from Intel through the OEM's as these companies submit their purchasing forecasts for next year.

        Problem is, people on the street usually don't see these reductions from Intel because they come in as rebates directly to the OEM.

        Is anyone else tired of the constant Intel PR leak engine? There have been more inconsequential product info "leaks" out of Intel in the past 6 months than at any time I can remember.

        When you don't have anything substantial to say, just leak the bejeezus to every tech website in hopes you can retain some buzz while you try defend your lousy benchmark scores.

          Intel 2019 - "Python is becoming the most popular language, therefore PyBench is the only important benchmark"

            Hopeless - not a word about its LED capabilities.
