The Xeon Platinum 8470 beats the Threadripper 3990X in these new benchmarks

The well-known leaker @yuuki_ans shared some very interesting benchmarks related to the Intel Xeon Platinum 8470 CPU, Sapphire Rapids series, giving us the opportunity to compare the results obtained with those of one of its main opponents: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X. Obviously, we would like to point out that this is unofficial information; therefore, the scores may not be completely reliable.

We remind you that Sapphire Rapids processors will be based on the Golden Cove architecture built on the Intel 7 process. Additionally, the chips support Intel Advanced Matrix eXtensions (AMX) to improve performance in training and inference workloads. The chips are equipped with up to 64GB of HBM2e memory, eight channels of DDR5, PCIe 5.0 and integrate support for Optane and CXL 1.1 memory.
