For this round of testing the EPYC 4244P (6 cores), EPYC 4344P (8 cores), EPYC 4364P (8 cores), EPYC 4464P (12 cores), EPYC 4484X (12 cores + 3D V-Cache), EPYC 4564P (16 cores), and EPYC 4584PX (16 cores + 3D V-Cache) were all benchmarked. I am still testing the EPYC 4124P 4-core processor that due to arriving late and already testing these other processors hadn't arrived in time for launch day. The EPYC 4124P will be part of its own interesting 4-core showdown soon. The AMD EPYC 4004 line-up was compared to the flagship Intel Xeon E-2488 8-core processor. That was the only Xeon E-2400 series processor I had available and with being their highest-end Xeon E processor right now shows the best possible Raptor Lake server performance.

All of these Intel and AMD processors were tested using a 3.2TB Micron 7450 Max (MTFDKCC3T2TFS) NVMe SSD, 2 x 32GB DDR5-4800 for the Xeon E-2488 (the Xeon E-2400 series maximum memory speed), and 2 x 32GB DDR5-5200 for the EPYC 4004 series (the EPYC 4004 maximum memory speed) on the servers.

Ubuntu 24.04 LTS with the Linux 6.8 kernel and GCC 13.2 compiler were used throughout all of the testing.
