Intel also wants a lot of cache memory in its processors, like AMD

Intel cannot offer the market anything comparable to AMD processors with 3D V-Cache memory, but it also pays more attention to cache memory. The Granite Rapids generation Xeon CPUs will reportedly have 50% more L3 cache than the current Emerald Rapids models.

More precisely, the top models of the new generation will have up to 480 MB of L3 cache versus the current 320 MB. And this despite the fact that the current Emerald Rapids already offer three times more memory than their predecessors. That is, in just two generation changes, Intel will increase the amount of L3 cache memory by more than four times.

For comparison, AMD Epyc Genoa processors have up to 384 MB of cache, which means Intel is still catching up with its competitor. We don't have data on the new Epyc yet, so we don't know if Intel Granite Rapids will be able to beat the new Epyc CPUs. But at the same time, AMD has a Ganoa-X line, where processors have 1152 MB of cache memory! So far Intel has nothing to offer here.
