The same can be said with Firebrid 3.0 SuperServer.

For Firebird SuperServer versions prior to version 3.0, I can see
KabyLake being better. But with Firebird 3.0, SuperServer is truly SMP
compliant, and will use more CPU cores compared to before (but this
still depends on the scenario, as an example: only one application
connecting with only one connection will most likely use the same
number of cores when comparing between version 2.5 and 3.0).

This is mostly the problem that we face with customers when they
complain that our application is slow.
