AMD, the new EPYC Milan surpass Dual Xeon in some tests
The benchmark of a new processor of the EPYC series from AMD has been present for a few hours on the Geekbench database. This is the AMD EPYC 7643, the new CPU from the Sunnyvale house based on Zen 3 architecture codenamed "Milan", with 48 cores. In the tests carried out it appears that the new AMD processor in a single CPU configuration would have higher performance than even the Intel Xeon Platinum 8276, a double CPU solution.

The new AMD processor sees, in addition to the greater number of cores, a reinterpretation of the core design and cache quantity, with the presence of 256MB of Cache L3 and 24MB of Cache L2, all with a standard operating frequency of 2.30GHz, which can be boosted up to 3.60GHz. The maximum TDP, on the other hand, stands at 225W, a not inconsiderable figure given the segment to which the product belongs. Among the available configurations there is also a version that we could define "light", equipped with 32 cores and 128MB of L3 cache. This solution should be equipped with four CCDs.

In terms of performance, the new processor scored higher in both single and multi core than its Intel counterpart. In the AMD lineup, on the other hand, comparing the less powerful 7543 with the 7643, a difference emerges in favor of the younger brother only in single core, a data probably deriving from the higher base clock.

Another benchmark is also available on Geekbench , relating to the performance of a server equipped with a dual socket configuration with two AMD EPYC 7513 on board, for a total of 64 cores in total alongside 512GB of DDR4 RAM. Each of these processors should work at a frequency of 2.60GHz, but in the test the CPUs only operated at 1.80GHz and the results obtained in the benchmark do not seem exceptional.

The new AMD EPYCs are obviously not limited to the three models that appeared on Geekbench, a total of 13 SKUs should arrive on the market. We have collected the various differences in this article, in which we also try to explain how the nomenclature used by AMD for the server segment works, in the hope of making it clearer.

These new processors, according to what stated by the same AMD, should be officially launched in March, accompanied by a support ecosystem from the American manufacturer, which apparently seems to be ready to give Intel a hard time.
