Anyone with experience running a CPU-intensive web app on Intel 13th Gen?

Hi,

Has anyone got experience with running a CPU-intensive web app on the 13th gen E-Core/P-Core architecture? I have a data processing web app, it handles multiple requests concurrently in a threaded fashion, but each request does some relatively heavy data processing on a single thread. For reference on my test 5950x PC it consumes a whole thread for ~500ms per request.

Hetzner just released their 13500 line at a price almost too good to pass up... but I'm a little unsure how well the architecture would handle a web app like mine, if all the P-Core threads are busy processing requests (it can sometimes hit 30-40 req/s) will it then fall back to serve whole requests using the significantly slower E-Cores, or does the scheduler do a good job spreading the workloads?

Just really looking for advice if anyone is running one in production... or if I just go with the 7700 for more consistent performance :p

    Sounds like you should probably go for something like AX101 or AX161 so you can have more threads in flight at once, even if they're slightly slower than the performance cores.

    To me, 32 or 64 good cores (64 or 128 threads) seems like it'd be a much better fit than 8 performance cores (16 threads) and 16 efficiency cores (16 threads).

  • What does the command "vmstat 10 12" print on your test PC?

    I am in the same situation as you, currently in their AX101 server .
