2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors Demonstrate Amazing HPC Performance

In this guest article, our friends at Intel discuss how benchmarks show key workloads average 31% better on Intel Xeon Platinum 9282 than AMD EYPC “Rome” 7742. Intel analysis provides strong evidence that the 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processor (Cascade Lake “CLX”) architecture provides dramatic performance for real-world workloads. An impressive array of benchmarks shows 2S systems built with Intel’s 56 core processors (Intel Xeon Platinum 9282 processor) solidly ahead of systems built with AMD’s 64 core processors (AMD EYPC 7742).
