Amd ryzen 9 3950x benchmark

A recently leaked set of benchmark results from the well-known TUM_APISAK leaker shows that the upcoming AMD Ryzen 9 3950X will not only outperform AMD's existing Threadripper 2950X, but it will also outperform Intel's not-yet-released i910980XE.

We know that the Ryzen 9 3950X will have a considerable impact, but these new leaks show how many jumps AMD has designed on the chip. The

parallel comparison was performed in two separate tests using the Geekbench 5 benchmarking utility. The

first scored 1,276 in single core performance, and all cores scored 15401. This uses an Asus Prime X570P motherboard with 64 GB of DDR43600 RAM.

On the other hand, the use of the Gigabyte B450 Aorus Pro WiFi motherboard and 16 GB of DDR43600 RAM produced a single-core performance of 1,314 points and a multi-core result of 11,140 points.

Although both chips are targeting different parts of the CPU market, they both have 16 cores and 32 threads, achieving the same base clock speed of 3.5 GHz. When the Ryzen 9 3950X benefits from the additional 300 MHz (a single core) and double the 64MB L3 cache in the Threadripper 2950X, the specs differ in terms of higher clock speeds. On the other hand, the 2950X's TDP is 180 W (compared to the 3950X's 105 W), 64 PCIe lanes, and four-lane memory, while the 3950X has 105 W, 24 PCIe lanes, and two lanes.

Although it is not very useful to compare the CPU for the consumer market and the CPU for the high-end desktop field, the result does mean that the performance of the Ryzen 9 3950X in the single-core test is 14.3% higher than the Ryzen Threadripper 2950X and the not-so-impressive 3.9% is used for multi-core workloads.

Although it is recommended to be skeptical when viewing unscaled comparisons, especially leak comparisons that cannot be verified, the performance of the Ryzen 9 3950X shows the power of AMD Zen 2 7nm technology. With the upcoming release of AMD's 3rd Gen Threadripper CPU, we'll have to see if the Ryzen 9 3950X can hold the crown.

It's nice to outperform products from the same manufacturer, but what's even more impressive is that the Ryzen 9 3950X outperforms Intel's flagship Cascade LakeX HEDT i910980XE.

This time, the tool used is 3DMark and its Fire Strike test. Compared to 25,838 points for the i910980XE, the Ryzen 9 3950X scored 32,082 points, which is equivalent to a performance increase of almost 25%.

Interestingly, the i910980XE test has been removed. Whether Intel is involved remains to be seen, but consumer chips beating HEDT chips aren't the most flattering way to make headlines before launch.

It is worth noting that the specifications of the two machines are quite different, especially in the front end of RAM and GPU, which may affect performance, so it is recommended to be skeptical. In addition, we do not know whether the i910980XE version used in the benchmark test is equivalent to the final released product or previous samples distributed before the final version.

Like the previous Threadripper, the target market share of the i910980XE is different from that of the Ryzen 9 3950X, and it has the function of combining 48 PCIe channels and four-channel memory. With this in mind, the test result bodes well for the 3950X, but it should be considered in context. The real test will be when i910980XE is paired with AMD's next-generation third-generation Threadriper, but we have to wait for a while before launching.

Everything surrounding the next-gen Ryzen 9 3950X seems to place it at the top of CPU gaming. How much is true remains to be seen, but we definitely have high hopes for AMD's next-gen chipset. What about you? Do you think your new CPU will live up to expectations?
