Intel Unveils High-Core Count ‘Emerald Rapids’ Xeon Processor Aimed at Cloud-Native Workloads

Intel and AMD have adopted different strategies to address this audience. Intel has pursued a multi-core approach with entirely different core designs, while AMD has developed a slightly modified version of its existing Zen-4 based core, primarily distinguished by minor changes in cache and I/O. The recent launch of AMD’s Siena EPYC 8004 processor aligns with this direction.

The unveiling of the “Emerald Rapids” Xeon Scalable processor highlights Intel’s commitment to delivering high-performance solutions for cloud-native workloads and competing in the ever-evolving cloud computing market.
