Intel Offers More Cascade Lake-AP Performance Numbers

 Share

Source article

 

Anandtech have condensed most of Intel's performance slides into an easier to read table.

There's no power figures with these either, and as the article notes

Quote

When we are this far away from a product launch, all benchmark numbers should be taken with a grain of salt. This goes doubly so for vendor supplied benchmarks.

We're still waiting for reviewers to get their hands on Zen2 Epyc and these new Intel chips, but I did think it was interesting to re-watch the AMD event where they showcased Epyc2 against 2 of the top Xeons (in a favourable benchmark). Of course in both cases they are vendor numbers.

 

As a side note, this slide of partners is lacking Amazon Web Services. AMD made a big point of showing their new partnership for Epyc2, I'm not sure it would ever be an either or scenario though.

Boring, 10nm or gtfo Intel, going back to the gluing cpus together tactic it bashed AMD so badly due to Infinity Fabric is admitting defeat.

Watching Lisa take a shot at Intel for that during the AMD Next Horizon event was quite vindicating. As time has gone on, the true reasoning of scaling and yields behind AMD's method has become clear.

 

They're knocking it out the park at the moment. I do worry for them once Intel does get it's 10nm and beyond sorted out, but hopefully they've got the momentum now to keep going and not hit another brick wall like they did with Bulldozer.

 

I really like the scalability of AMDs approach.

Oh wow, 96 cores are faster than 64 last gen cores in some tasks (according to these very trustworthy tests by intel themselves)... who'd have thought? Let's see how they fare against 128 zen 2 cores...

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

I'm honestly more excited about technology and to see this battle over the next few years than I have been since Sandybridge was rocking the performance boat.

Oh wow it's so so much worse than I was thinking, I assumed it was 1 Cascade Lake-AP vs 2 EPYC 7601.

They wouldn't want to face epyc on its own turf (aka in a situation where cascade lake is bound by dual socket problems because of its design and the epyc chip isn't). I suspect the results would be a lot closer in that case, despite the core advantage for intel.

Honestly right now it would have been more insightful if Intel had compared the performance to it's own existing products, but that would allow us to actually figure out it's performance, including compared to AMD. Plenty of reviews for 8180 vs 7601, all we need is a Cascade Lake-AP vs 1 and 2 socket 8180 and we will know everything we need.

As a reminder, you can buy a 2S Xeon Platinum 8168 server already. This system should be slightly worse performance in a number of areas than that system.

Based on these numbers only linpack is better on Intel, but the rest Rome should win.

And Rome is shipping this year. Lol

I'd hold on to that assessment, Linpack uses AVX and Rome is double throughput so... interesting times ahead.

Ah more misleading crap from Intel again

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

The 48 cores with Cascade Lake-AP against the 2x 32c/64t Epyc 7601. The normal use 50% improvement points to that double AVX performance. Charlie at Semi-Accurate has been talking up Rome slaughtering Intel for 2 years. He's not wrong if they normalize AVX performance levels and come with 128c/256t per 2U server.

Given how AVX1 performs Intel vs AMD, total slaughter by AMD I can have relative trust in them when they say they have improved AVX2 and doubled it's throughput capabilities (throughput != performance). Even if it's only on par the price would make anything from Intel a joke.

We kind of rightly gave Intel hell over the "Glued-together" statement, but the 2nd point, "Poor Track Record", was the actual attack. And, it mattered a lot.

14nm supply says what? ?

 

Edit:

Intel was like, fuck it lets dig our own grave with that slide. Hindsight is a bitch.

Yup. We'll see how the AVX units operate at 256bit, but the 128bit performance was really good compared to Intel. If that gets normalized, there's just so many cores more. Plus, there's going to be companies that want PCIe 4.0 bandwidth and only AMD will be able to provide that for a while.

hold up, we have 22nm to help with that. 

 

intel: hey TSMC you wouldnt mind makin some 14nm chips would you?

The under-reported aspect to the Intel Supply crunch is it appears that yields still aren't brilliant.
