In mid-August, AMD EPYC processors set an absolute performance record in the Cinebench R15 benchmark, overtaking the competitor - Intel Xeon Platinum 8160. A month later, enthusiasts decided to give Intel a chance to recoup: the charged Xeon Platinum 8180M worth tens of thousands of dollars became participants in the revenge.
A direct comparison of the characteristics of the Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M and AMD EPYC 7742 was incorrect due to the impressive difference in the number of cores, therefore, the servers with the appropriate number of processors participated in the test: four Intel stones against two AMD.
But despite the twofold numerical advantage, the total number of cores and threads of the “blue” turned out to be less (112/224 and 128/256, respectively). According to the results of testing Intel in single and multi-threaded disciplines, a server on Intel processors scored 4700 and 155 050 points, respectively. The result of AMD is 4876 and 192 554 points. At the same time, four Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M will cost the potential buyer $ 52,000, and a pair of AMD EPYC 7742 “only” $ 14,000.
