Amazon Graviton3 vs. Intel Xeon vs. AMD EPYC Performance
Out of 94 benchmarks ran across all tested 4xlarge Amazon EC2 instances, the Graviton3 instance had the most first place finishes at 43 wins to Intel Xeon at 35 and the EPYC Milan instance at 16.
When taking the geometric mean of all 94 benchmark results, the Graviton3 c7g.4xlarge narrowly passed the Xeon Ice Lake c6i.4xlarge instance type followed by the EPYC Milan c6a.4xlarge. With this set of 94 benchmarks carried out on Ubuntu Server 22.04 LTS, Graviton3 was 43% faster than the same-sized Graviton2 instance and 3.1x the performance of the original Graviton "a1.4xlarge" instance.
Those interested in all 94 benchmarks can see each individual benchmark result -- plus as well all of the performance-per-dollar metrics -- via this OpenBenchmarking.org result page.
