Hetzner just released new dedi in their EX line - EX100

12900K has the best singlecore performance at this time (Geekbench 5 Single Core ~2000 points!!!)
Very good choice for PHP-based sites, game servers...
But how does it stacks up? Should you chose it over AMD option? For a little bit less you can get AX101:
AMD Ryzen 9 5950X (16 cores) 128GB DDR4 with ECC 2x 3.84TB NVMe Gen3 1Gbps unlimited like on all Hetzner dedis Price: €94 + VAT if applicable
It has 2x more storage, but CPU performance will be a little bit worse (Geekbench 5 Single Core 1600-1700). For most people AMD is better choice, because it has already very fast cores, its cheaper and you get more storage, but if you need the best core performance possible then EX100 is obvious choice.
What do you think about EX100? Is this a good deal?
