Ryzen 9 3950x intel core i9 10980xe
As sure as the tide, new rumors have been heard today about AMD's upcoming Ryzen 9 3950X CPU. This time, the leak came from Gigabyte, a well-respected motherboard vendor. The overclocking guide for the
Aorus X570-Gigabyte has disappeared from their website - it delves into what users expect from the Ryzen 9 3950X. This document reveals tests performed with a CPU and 16GB DDR4 3200 MHz RAM and a 360mm radiator liquid cooling setup. Unsurprisingly, the result turns the 3950X into a beast. Chapter
What Does This Tell Us? First of all, the Ryzen 9 3950X's highest boost frequency across both cores is 4.7 GHz. By contrast, Intel's Core i9 9900K hits 4.6 GHz, but spans eight cores.
Although across the 16 cores, the Ryzen 9 3950X maximum boost speed can reach 4.3 GHz below 1.4V Vcor e, although the test produced a 4.4 GHz reading by pressing the motherboard and altering the voltage on certain circumstances.
This document also runs through Cinebench R15, and the 4.3 GHz overclocking level is 4384. This is important because Intel's equivalent Core i99980XE can only achieve about 3,700.
As always, benchmarks do not always show a complete picture of CPU functionality, because they generally cannot replicate user terminal usage. However, they still hint at what we can get out of the Ryzen 3950X's performance, especially in terms of the possibility of multi-threaded overclocking.
As for when we can get access to AMD's latest powerful CPU, November is being touted as the time it will happen, which is paired with AMD's third-generation Threadripper product line. But the release of the Ryzen 9 3950X was postponed from September, so we can put it off further.
