    Phoronix: Intel Launches Their Much-Anticipated Xeon Scalable CPUs, Tyan Unveils Their Wares

    This week Intel officially launched their Xeon Scalable Processors as what they claim is "the biggest platform advancement in this decade" and will end up going head-to-head with AMD's EPYC processors...

    This may work for the NUMA / Large Scale Compute crowd, but honestly that market is very small and is shrinking. The sweet spot is the multi-core/dual socket where mesh has less of an impact. Coincidently that is where AMD says they are headed with Epyc. The datacenter/cloud providers want more compute per socket to keep shrinking their footprints. Not create yet larger sets of racks that have to stay in sync via a mesh.

    New Xeon design reflects the mesh path very well. But it seems Epyc is moving towards INT and FP performance per core that cloud providers really want.

    And I also heard a new term the other day.....Epyc design was called "virtual cores". I thought that odd since a "core" currently is hardware at the CPU level.

      Well mesh does have an impact : bad gaming results in reviews of the consumer chips (although these "bad" results are mostly good enough if you're ok with it). Or is it the slower caches as a consequence of the reorganization.

      Intel still needed to be present on the market of quad socket, eight socket with maxed out cores and memory and stuff. This is where they've been competing with POWER, Sparc, mainframes and making their market share shrink. There could be some IBM POWER revival, while Oracle is dying a decades-long death, and Itanium is like Leonid Brezhnev in the late 70s : a living mummy.

        11 core amd is faster than 10 core intel
        so 32 core amd will be faster than 28 core intel
