With over 17 years of IT hardware supply chain resources


Server Q&A

AMD and Intel have been competitors from the start. As we know, Intel has been dominant all these years because they’re just better. At that time, no one would buy AMD.

It happened that Lisa Su (AMD’s CEO) came out at the end of 2016 and announced Ryzen. Nobody really bothers it because it’s a 14nm chipset and says you’re really getting a good deal, so AMD is a good start. Bang!!!!!! Two years on, the Zen+ architecture is out. 12nm is good, and it’s an amazing improvement. Then just a year later, you might have guessed 10nm, but the Zen2 came out with a 7nm architecture, which turned the tables. Intel has only just developed 10nm architectures. I didn’t expect AMD to come out with 7nm so early. This is where things have changed dramatically. Of course, AMD can offer twice as many cores for half the price, and sometimes even less, with the same performance.

Now to do business,

AMD Epyc vs. Intel Xeon

AMD Epyc – Based on the new ZEN2 (7nm) architecture, it can have more cores and more threads without affecting TDP. It can consume less power and generate less heat, which will keep the CPU form running for a long time.

Intel Xeon – Intel Xeon CPUs have 14nm architecture, with 10nm being the upcoming architecture.


Intel Xeon

Core – Up to 56
Threads count up to 112
Clock (Max) – up to 4.8GHz
AMD Epyc

Core – Up to 64
Threads count up to 128
Clock (Max) – up to 3.4 GHz GHz

Intel is now dumped by AMD, so I recommend you buy AMD CPUs, and they are cheaper.
