Intel Granite Rapids – Xeon server processors with a larger L3 cache. Still light years behind AMD EPYC Milan-X and Genoa-X


Intel Granite Rapids - Xeon server processors with a larger L3 cache.  Still light years behind AMD EPYC Milan-X and Genoa-XIn addition to consumer processors, Intel’s portfolio also includes units called Xeon, whose main application is servers. In December 2023, the next, 5th generation of these systems called Emerald Rapids was released. The improvements were mainly made to the third-level cache. The next generation of Granite Rapids is expected to continue this trend, although it will still lag behind AMD EPYC units.

The upcoming Intel Xeon processors from the Granite Rapids series are expected to appear in 2024. The next generation will bring a significant increase in L3 cache memory, but it will still not catch up with AMD EPYC units from the Milan-X family.

The 5th generation of Emerald Rapids mentioned in the introduction boasted an L3 cache of 320 MB, which was quite a significant increase compared to the previous series of Sapphire Rapids (112.5 MB). The Granite Rapids family discussed today is set to raise the bar even further, as information has been found in Intel SDE 9.33.0 firmware that clearly indicates that the third level cache will be 480 MB. Even though Intel is currently emphasizing this aspect, the unreleased Granite Rapids series already lags behind AMD EPYC processors in this respect.

AMD EPYC is a competitive solution for Intel Xeon processors, but in terms of level three cache memory they leave no stone unturned on Intel. Already in March 2022, the Milan-X family was introduced, which offered 768 MB of the discussed L3 cache memory. However, the AMD EPYC Genoa-X generation presented at the beginning of 2023 offers as much as 1152 MB of this memory. If we were to focus only on this aspect, the new generation of Intel, which has not yet been introduced, is already very poor, even when looking at almost 2-year-old units from AMD.
