I am not a CPU expert. But compare memory bandwidth, clock rate, PCI Express version
and support for AVX support (for some features). There a few places in DPDK
that can use AVX512 but it is limited 
https://doc.dpdk.org/guides/howto/avx512.html

Also there is a tradeoff with more cores, NUMA, etc as well as cost.

Don't believe simple tribal knowledge, you need to look under the covers.
