Amd ryzen threadripper 3990x cpu xeon platinum

A new benchmark has emerged for the AMD RyzenTM Threadripper 3990X CPU, demonstrating the performance of the HEDT chip, and it looks more impressive than we initially expected.

Based on benchmarks, HEDT chips can outperform Intel's leading Xeon Scalable Cascade Lake processors. The benchmark test comes from the SiSoftware database.

AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is this year's flagship HEDT processor, providing 64 Zen 2 cores and 128 threads. Although there is little competition in this range, it provides answers to Intel Xeon scalable components for the data center and high performance computing markets.

AMD confirmed that the processor will have a total cache of 288 MB, a TDP of 280W and a large number of PCIe Gen 4 channels. These specifications mean that the base clock of the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is 2.90 GHz and the acceleration clock single-core is 4.3 GHz. The latest

benchmark test showed that the chip achieved an impressive GOPS of 1786.22, which outperformed the double Xeon Platinum 8280, which generally only averaged 17.8%. Other data displayed by AMD

shows that the performance of the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X outperforms the dual Xeon configuration by up to 30%.

Although the Xeon Platinum 8280 has only 28 cores and 56 threads, with a total of 56 cores and 112 threads, each chip is worth $ 10,000. This is a huge price compared to the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, which has an estimated retail price of $ 4,000.

Given that the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X seems to provide better performance and price, it is difficult to see how Intel will continue to occupy this part of the market. The

rumors also indicate that Intel has postponed Cooper Lake and Ice Lake Xeon processors for a few months, and may hope to revise Intel’s CPU prices in the second half of 2020.

At present, we can only marvel at AMD's Ryzen. 3990X, we will wait and see how Intel will respond. From the appearance, this will be an interesting battle between the two brands this year.
