Even with Intel's own software like the OSPray ray-tracing engine that is part of their oneAPI rendering toolkit, AMD top-end EPYC Rome processors continue to lead over the likes of the Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 that continues to retail for significantly more money.

Even when running Intel's Embree with ISPC, the top-end Rome SKUs continued exceeding the Xeon Platinum 8280 and Xeon Gold 6258R competition.

Likewise for Intel's Embree ray-tracing kernels and Intel's SVT-AV1 video encoder that is now part of the AOMedia project continues to be strong leads for AMD EPYC Rome over Cascade Lake.
