Ampere Altra vs. Amazon Graviton2 Linux Performance Benchmarks
Written by Michael Larabel in Processors on 8 January 2021. Page 4 of 4. 27 Comments

That's the brief look at how the Ampere Altra stacks up in effortlessly outperforming Amazon's Graviton2 as one would expect given the clock speed advantage and greater core counts while both being derived from Arm's Neoverse N1 design. The TCO with time is also likely to favor Ampere Altra over Graviton2.

For those wanting to see how their own Linux systems/servers compare to these 64-bit ARM Ubuntu 20.04 server configurations, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 2012190-HA-ALTRAEC2377 for your own fully-automated, side-by-side benchmark comparison against these Ampere Altra and AWS Graviton2 benchmark results.
