After a couple of Geekbench scores, the newly introduced 16 core monstrous Ryzen 3950X chip is ready to rule the high-end CPU market. Launched with its Threadripper brothers, this mainstream CPU is the world’s first consumer-oriented 16 core chip.
Obviously, the 7nm process and the new Zen 2 architecture is the key ingredient to the massive performance leap that AMD has taken against the blue team. Scheduled to be available in the market from November 25, this CPU is currently demolishing its opponents at the leaked benchmarks.
Even though we do not guarantee the accurateness of the benchmark, but yes they do shed some light to how these CPUs will actually perform in real-world tests. A recent benchmark chart that was shared on Reddit, shows that the AMD’s Ryzen 9 3950X chip is in the third position in PassMark’s CPU Mark table with a whopping 34,009 points.
The two processors above the 16 core Ryzen 9 3950X comes from the recently announced AMD’s EPYC family, costing around 1 thousand dollars. Right underneath the Ryzen’s Zen 2 CPU is the Intel’s 28-core Xeon W-3175X chip, proving that this $749 Matisse CPU can easily outpace a Skylake server SKU.
The benchmark seems to take advantage of 16 cores of the CPU that are clocked at 3.5 GHz base and a high 4.7 GHz boost which eventually demolishes the costlier Intel Core i9-9980XE, which has a base clock of 3.0 GHz and a boost of up to 4.4 GHz/4.5 GHz, by a good margin of 4,500 points.
The benchmark does miss the 3rd gen Threadripper CPUs which will surely fill the gap between EPYC CPUs and the Ryzen 9 3950X. The newer i9-10980XE also cannot be spotted but we do feel it will be less powerful than the 16-core Ryzen CPU as it was already proved in Geekbench.
The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X has been modestly priced at US$749, on the other hand, the Intel’s i9-9980XE costs close to US$2,000 and the Xeon W-3175X costs a whopping US$3,000, though recently Intel is cutting down the prices of its HEDT processors due to AMD’s amazing pricing.
Overall, again with a new benchmark, the so-called world’s most powerful 16-core desktop processor is again proving its worth and the speculations surrounding it, which you get your hands-on from November 25 onwards.
