SPECwpc results show strong multi-core performance, keep in mind that the CPU's main competition in the SPEC test is a dual CPU system made up of two E5-2683 v3 CPUs that are each 14 cores and 28 threads with a base clock of 2.0GHz and boost of 3.0GHz. This is very similar to the EPYC CPU's speeds.

 

 

The Intel system here has more cores and threads overall (4 cores and 8 threads in total), and in either case, the EPYC system wins hands down, or the Intel one wins hands down. It's a very situational scenario. Memory bandwidth is insanely high, and latency is better than ThreadRipper.
