Glenn Berry has some thoughts on AMD’s EPYC line of processors:
Over the years, I have written many articles about the fine art of processor selection for SQL Server. This is an important topic, because it has a direct relationship to your SQL Server license costs. It also affects your performance and scalability. As new processor families are introduced, I do the required analytical work and update my recommendations. In this post, I will list my recommended AMD Processors for SQL Server.
I’m just happy that the answer isn’t a null set anymore.
