It’s Another EPYC Xeon Battle

Can 7642 Really Be More Than 8280?

The math might seem odd at first glance, but Phoronix has the proof that this can be true.  The EPYC 7642 will cost you around $5000 to $6000 if you see it being sold by itself for some odd reason, while the Xeon Platinum 8280 will cost you roughly twice that.  Phoronix have recently added these processors to the list of results from their comprehensive server benchmarking results and you can take a peek at how the new EPYC did.

The performance per dollar charts are especially telling.

We have been testing the EPYC 7642 48-core processors and even there the performance is generally ahead of a Xeon Platinum 8280 while being about half the cost of that flagship non-AP Intel Xeon Scalable Cascadelake processor.
