Xeon Gold 6250 vs. EPYC 7F32 - 8-Core Server CPU Performance On Ubuntu 20.04
Written by Michael Larabel in Processors on 18 May 2020. Page 9 of 9. 28 Comments

On a performance-per-dollar basis using the Intel/AMD list prices, to little surprise the EPYC 7F32 held a dominating lead in coming in at around $2100 USD compared to the Xeon Gold 6250 at $3400 list. I haven't been able to find any EPYC 7F32 retail unit in stock at the usual Internet retailers while for the Xeon Gold 6250 it seems to be commanding even a $3700~3800 price.

If taking the geometric mean of the more than three dozen benchmarks carried out for this latest Xeon vs. EPYC comparison on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, here is the breakdown. The Xeon Gold 6250 had a 3~4% lead over the EPYC 7F32 overall in both 1P/2P configurations thanks to its strong finish in various Intel open-source software packages and other workloads, but that small lead amounts to over a 60% pricing premium on the Xeon Gold 6250. But rather than going off the geometric mean, depending upon the workloads most important to your business use-cases it's better driving into the individual results for making a more detailed comparison.

For those wanting to see how your own Linux CPU performance compares to the assortment of CPUs being benchmarked, simply install the >Phoronix Test Suite and then run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 2005183-PTS-000FLACI62 for your own fully-automated, side-by-side benchmark comparison against all of the data found in this article.

More Ubuntu 20.04 benchmarks on additional AMD EPYC and Intel Xeon SKUs coming up shortly on Phoronix.
