A few weeks back, AMD announced its impressive Ryzen Threadripper CPU family aimed at the enthusiast segment. While AMD did not reveal specific performance numbers during the announcement, some new benchmark numbers are finally here now. The Threadripper 1950X, which is a 16-core part, has been spotted on the Geekbench and SiSoft Sandra benchmark databases.
The latest results for the Threadripper 1950X reveal that single-core performance has come down slightly when compared to the early benchmarks that had popped up on the web a few weeks back. It managed to score 4074 points in the single-core test, as opposed to 4216 earlier. Multi-core performance, on the other hand, has seen an improvement from 24723 to 26768. While these numbers are pretty solid in isolation, they do not impress when compared to the Intel Core i9-7900X, a 10-core processor. Of course, it is very much possible that AMD might be able to optimize the chip further by the time it is ready for commercial launch, reducing the performance gap between the two processors. It should also be noted that the Intel Core i9-7900X boasts significantly higher clocks out of the box.
Moving on to SiSoft Sandra, the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X posted an Arithmetic score of 434.32 GOPS and Multimedia score of 821.64 Mpix/s. Intel’s Core i9-7900X on the other hand, scored 336.20 GOPS and 1262.68 Mpix/s, respectively in the two benchmarks. Intel’s 12-,14-,16-, and 18-core Core i9 processors will likely be able to score much higher in these benchmarks. As things stand currently, it does appear that the Ryzen Threadripper will not be in the same league as the Intel Core i9 series performance-wise. However, we do expect the Threadripper family to be much more affordable and deliver strong overclocking performance. That said, it is still a bit too early to arrive at any conclusion.
