Intel Scalable CPUs
Anyone have any Scalable CPUs yet? They are brand-new so I gather they are probably quite rare, but they look rather interesting compared to current E5s.
Trying to determine which CPU offers the best value for money for a high density hypervisors.
The Intel Xeon Platinum 8176 Processor looks pretty sweet, with 28 cores, 56 thread, 3.7Ghz Turbo and 2.1Ghz base clock speed. But at almost $9k, that's not chump change.
2x Intel Xeon Gold 6132 Processor would seem to be better value. Only 14 cores, but also 3.7Ghz Turbo but with 2.6Ghz base. Get 2 of these for about $4.3k and it cost less than half the Platinum 8176.
Would like to seem some benchmarks on these babies.
