Intel 4th Gen Xeon processors vs AMD

Intel said the 32-core 4th Gen Xeon processors are offering more CPU performance, performance per watt and lower overall total cost of ownership (TCO) as compared with rivals.
4th Gen Intel XeonMainstream Compute: 75% higher performance and 50% higher performance/watt

The most commonly deployed solutions in the market are delivered on mid-range core counts, a segment where per-core performance, power and throughput are critical key performance indicators. Knowing this, Intel compared a 32-core 4th Gen Xeon against the competition’s best mainstream 32-core part.

Mainstream TCO & Sustainability: 20% overall TCO savings and 20% kg CO2 savings

General-purpose benchmarks like SPEC CPU are important, but don’t tell the whole performance story for customers whose workload needs continue to evolve. The reality is that on workloads that matter most to customers, such as database, networking and storage, Xeon easily beats the competition by offering greater CPU performance, higher performance per watt and lower overall total cost of ownership (TCO). Furthermore, customers see important sustainability benefits in the form of reduced server numbers, fleet power usage and CO2 emissions.

AI Leadership: 80% higher inference throughput

Xeon is architected for AI, and Intel’s investment in software enables and optimizes AI across all major frameworks, libraries and model types. Intel’s testing demonstrates its continued CPU leadership on AI workloads leveraging its advanced hardware acceleration technology, Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions (Intel AMX).

More cores aren’t always the answer to achieve optimal performance. Intel AMX allows 4th Gen Xeon to scale at an incredible rate, beyond what’s possible with core counts alone. This leading Intel AI engine is built into each Xeon core, something the competition does not have and its customers cannot benefit from.

HPC Leadership: 40% higher performance across key workloads

When testing industry-specific HPC workloads, Intel pitted its 56-core Intel Xeon CPU Max Series processor featuring Intel AVX-512 against the competition’s top-bin 96-core offering. By combining the best of compute with high memory bandwidth and Intel HPC engines, Xeon Max CPUs drive a 40 percent performance advantage over the competition in many real-world HPC workloads, such as earth systems modeling, energy and manufacturing.
