Can't speak for AMD devices but I would be curious to know more on the
Intel side about this and how you measured and analysed it.

Are you running with any hyperthreading disabled, a firmware which is not
using SMM, and with any critical code pinned in cache ? How do you have
power management set up ?

(probably best taken off list)
