Apple’s M2 Ultra Seemingly Can’t Beat AMD and Intel Rivals

Apple’s M2 Ultra is a powerful processor with 24 general purpose cores and up to 76 integrated GPU cores. It’s also probably faster than Intel’s 28-core Xeon W found in the 2019 Mac Pro, so owners of new Mac Pro workstations will see a significant performance boost. However, according to purported benchmarks, this CPU can’t beat AMD and Intel’s competitors. geek bench 5 (via @ Vadim Yuriev) because they either boast very high clocks or have a staggering number of cores.

in that an endurance workstation-grade processor should (like all client processors) provide both extremely responsive performance and consistently high performance even under heavy workloads. , unlike desktop and server CPUs. This means it must have high instruction performance per clock, high clocks, high core count, memory load support, and PCIe lane functional load. AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper Pro W5995X and Intel’s Xeon W9-3495X comply with these requirements with 64 and 56 cores respectively. In a nutshell, use server silicon configured to deliver very high clocks when needed.
