AMD EPYC CPUs are the most widely used among AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud platforms in terms of high performance instead of Intel''s Xeon chips, according to a recent study by Cockroach Labs.
In the most recent study focusing on CPU performance in the cloud, AMD EPYC outshines Intel Xeon.
In various tests on Intel''s performance, AMD EPYC Milan and Rome, the multi-core x86 and x64 microprocessors, destroyed the competing Cascade Lake and Ice Lake Xeon CPUs from Intel between the three cloud platforms.
In the CoreMark version 1.0 benchmark test, which allows for both processing on an individual vCPU or multiple vCPUs, CockroachDB tests tested that AMD Milan CPUs outperformed Intel in many instances. Defined by OLTP and CPU benchmark tests, AMD Milan surpassed Intel''s current Ice Lake CPUs.
Cockroach Labs is collaborating on development.
The GCP''s t2d model, or Tau, which uses third-generation AMD EPYC CPUs, would be ahead of Intel''s n2-standard examples, which utilize Ice Lake Xeon CPUs.
The three cloud providers in the study have reportedly offered slightly identical pricing.
CockroachDB notes that transfer and storage costs have a greater significance than the operational costs of any of the cloud providers. The hidden fees many cloud server providers offer may directly affect the resiliency of secure applications.

The more recent Sapphire Rapids 4th Gen Xeon family has been canceled from a 2020 launch until the 2nd quarter of 2023, while AMD will have their 128 core EPYC Bergamo lineup ready for release around the same time.
