It will be interesting to see how this all shakes out. Zen 4 seems to have dramatically improved performance at lower power per core which means mobile and server applications may see a bigger boost than desktop.

That doesn't count AMD increasing vote counts either.

Intel of course has optimization co-processors that make up the gap in some workloads, but less effective for virtualization platforms. So it depends.

All I can say is competition is a great thing.

Well Genoa can support up to 128 cores per cpu, but will most likely max out at 96. So 96 cores with lower tdp. Yeah, good for intel? Not to mention Genoa is reported to feature much higher clocks thanks to the same zen 4 arch. It's going to be a bloodbath.

Hardly a fair contest is it? last Gen CPU vs next Gen, DDR4 vs DDR 5 using a application which frankly would never be seen near a server, lets do some real world tests and then see better still wait for the Ryzen 4 based chips then try it, as has already been commented by someone bloodbath incoming

Genoa is 96 cores and Bergamo is 128 cores. Bergamo is geared at cloud providers, however, it probably is as fast as Zen 3.
