AMD EPYC 7002 series vs. Intel Xeon Scalable series 2nd Generation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Relatively basic question but much harder to actually get any solid numbers on.

    Currently in the process of upgrading our main servers and trying to weigh up options of current Intel and AMD offerings.

    Does anyone have any experience with the new EPYC 7002 series vs 2nd gen Intel Xeon Scalable? If you want specifics, I'm looking for comparison of the Xeon Gold 5222 and EPYC 7262. Currently using Xeon E5-2637 v3 chips and whilst I expect Intel will still offer a performance advantage, AMD does offer a much more compelling platform with PCIe 4.0 and faster memory support.

    Any first hand experience would be fantastic, thanks in advance.

  • Hi Jacob Hawkes,


    According to your description, your question is about the performance comparison of cpu, but this forum is the technical forum of sql server, I suggest you go to the appropriate forum for help.
