At CES this year, AMD briefly previewed the performance of its Zen 3-based Milan CPUs when it compared it against an Intel Xeon part. AMD used dual unnamed 32-core EPYC Milan CPUs and pitted it against dual Intel Xeon Gold 6258R processors. The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model which is a weather prediction and simulation test was run on both systems and the EPYC part was found to be 68% faster. An AMD victory was to be expected considering that the Intel Xeon model had four fewer cores but still this was a mighty impressive showing from Team Red.
AMD hoped to release the Milan CPUs late last year but that got delayed probably due to the ongoing 7nm wafer shortage.
