Intel Xeon Platinum

In April 2021, Intel introduced the 3rd generation Xeon Platinum Processor code-named Ice Lake. The 10nm Xeon processors are designed for the datacenter and incorporate advanced enterprise security features, have multiple cores, baked-in AI acceleration, and a hefty amount of cache. The CPUs are ideal for AI/ML and workloads requiring hefty processing. At the center of the design, the masterpiece is the Xeon Platinum 8380 that comes packed with 40 cores, 80 threads, and 60 MB of cache.

AMD Threadripper PRO

The Ryzen Threadripper PRO, based on 7nm process technology is AMD’s latest CPU series for the workstation. It has multiple cores and supports 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes making it ideal multi-threaded workloads. According to AMD, it performs better than the Intel Platinum Xeon series.

PCIe 4.0 is said to deliver 2x the I/O performance over the older PCIe 3.0 generation. As in most modern CPUs today, it has a security processor that guarantees root-of-trust and full memory encryption.

Standard Threadripper

The standard Threadripper is based on 7nm manufacturing process technology and uses socket sTR4. The higher-end versions come with 640 cores, 256 MB L3 cache, and support 128 threads. The Threadripper is designed for desktops.  


Prices for the PRO and standard are all over the board. Some are below MSRP but others are above MSRP likely due to supply shortages. The pricing was pulled from Newegg as of December 11, 2021.
