A CPU is a CPU is a CPU.
And Apple has the best CPU on the market.
With the highest ram bandwidth.

Of course a server M2 PRO would have higher clocks with modest heat sinks and case fans, I am talking 24 sockets after all.

It’s the level of powning that is hilarious, assuming Apple ever publicly sold such servers to third parties. Do the cost basis for Apple CPU’s verses 24 Intel/AMD CPU’s, and what sort of comparison and margins this would produce. I can’t stop laughing. ;)
