Intel bets on a secret weapon to beat AMD in some AI workloads — AVX-512 instructions will help Xeon beat Epyc in specific scenarios but Intel will have to work much, much harder to worry AMD

Intel’s 5th-Gen Xeon Scalable processors, built on the Emerald Rapids architecture, can benefit from a huge raw performance boost when running AVX-512 workloads.

An Intel Xeon Platinum 8592+ CPU can almost double its average performance while also increasing power efficiency when running AVX-512 instructions in a handful of specific workloads, according to benchmarking site Phoronix
