The new Intel 3rd Gen Ice Lake-SP Xeon CPU benchmarks have now been revealed within the SiSoftware Sandra database, and we can say that the performance has improved a little bit, bringing the chips to close the EPYC Rome competitors of AMD.
The Intel Xeon Platinum 8352Y and Xeon Platinum 8352S are seemed to be the same chips. Both have 32 cores and 64 threads. It features a 2.20 GHz base clock speed, a 3.40 GHz boost, and a 2.4 GHz of IMC clock speed. The clock speed was hovering nearly 2.8 GHz on average.
The Intel Xeon Platinum 8352S’s benchmarks were carried out on a single chip, while the Xeon Platinum 8352Y was tested in a configuration of dual-socket. The Intel Xeon Platinum 8352S scored 813.40 GOPS in the processor arithmetic test and scored 3564.27 Mpix/s in Multi-Media tests. Coming to the dual-socket configuration, the Xeon Platinum 8352Y did score 1604.36 GOPS, which is nearly perfect scaling.
The 2-socket configuration has double the cores to offer, so it will be great to compare it to the 64 core AMD EPYC Rome parts. The CPUs come out faster than the EPYC 7742 64 core flagship by 4%. They can’t win against the high-end Threadripper 3990X 64 core which offers a much higher clock, but versus EPYC, Xeon Ice Lake Intel CPUs seem to feature a slight gain.
Both the Intel Xeon 3rd Gen Server CPU and AMD EPYC lineups will be going up against each other very soon. AMD will launch the new 3rd Gen EPYC Milan lineup in the coming week, while Intel still hasn’t decided any hard launch date for its Xeon Ice Lake SP family.
