Ryzen Threadripper 3990X – A Real Thunderstorm For Intel Processors.
A couple of days ago we wrote about how the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor defeated the much more expensive Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 in the Geekbench 5 benchmark. Today, another Ryzen Threadripper 3990X test has appeared, only using the Linux platform. And in it, the performance of the new AMD in the multi-threaded test turned out to be about 30% higher!
Based on the Geekbench 5 database, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X outperforms almost any Intel processor in performance. Take for comparison the most powerful “blue” CPU – the 56-core Xeon Platinum 9282. It scores 1082 points in a single-threaded test and 43891 points – in a multi-threaded one. It turns out that in the first test the advantage is on the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X side. And the cost advantage is at least three times in favor of the AMD CPU.
Standing a step below the 48-core Xeon Platinum 9242 loses the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X in a single-threaded test and demonstrates similar performance in multi-threaded. It costs, again, many times more. Further comparison of the “blue” processors and the “red” does not make sense – all Intel CPUs will yield.
