AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X tested - again

On Cinebench R15 and Geekbench

Another set of benchmarks on AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper CPU has surfaced. This time it looks like the 16 cores AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has been tested. This model features 16 cores, 32 threads and a TDP of 180W. The leak comes courtesy of a redditor who has actually managed to get his hands on the chip. The user ran some benchmarks and according to his post, Ryzen Threadripper is a better overclocker than mainstream Ryzen.

These new results have been gathered using Cinebench R15 and GeekBench. Let's start out with Cinebench R15 first. The Threadripper 1950X hits 3'337 points running at 4.0GHz, according to the Cinebench R15 database the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is 29% faster than Intel’s Xeon E5-2697 v4. This is a pretty interesting result since the Intel Xeon E5-2697 v4 features 18 cores and 36 threads, while the AMD chip has two cores and 4 threads less to bring to the table.

The Geekbench score is even more impressive. In this case the chip hits 58'391 points in the multi-threaded test. According to Geekbench database, an Intel Core i9-7900X overclocked to 4.5GHz can hit 42'000 points, while a Xeon E5-2697 v4 can barely surpass the Core i9. In other words those new tests confirm previous rumors as well as previous testing, showing that the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is definitely a very quick chip.

All these tests have been performed with a Thermaltake Water 3.0 liquid cooler and an ASRock motherboard with 8x8 GB memory running at DDR4-3066. The embargo on Threadripper reviews lifts this Thursday and we can't wait to see what else this chip can do.
