AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X / 3960X Linux Benchmarks
When it comes to micro-benchmarks, Intel's Core i9 10980XE does perform well with the GNU C Library tasks (glibc) thanks to all of the optimizations carried out by the Intel open-source developers.
The new CPUs perform very well for real-world workloads like GROMACS and Octave.
Context switching performance on the Cascade Lake CPU came out slightly ahead of the Zen 2 processors.
For single-threaded server tasks like PHP and Redis, the Core i9 10980XE did offer better performance, but should you be using HEDT CPUs in production web workloads you would be able to handle more load on the higher core count Threadripper CPUs. But for real web purposes, AMD EPYC processors are a more suitable choice.
