Ryzen Threadripper 3990X goes on sale in 5 days.
AMD introduced the flagship 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor at CES 2020, fully declassified a week later, and promised to launch sales of new items on February 7. At the end of next week, the lucky ones with $ 4,000 in their wallet will be able to get a processor, but for now, you can look at its performance: the CPU is highlighted in the Geekbench database.
In a single-threaded test, he scored 1208 points, multi-threaded – almost 20 times more. By themselves, these data mean little to those who are not familiar with the benchmark, but if you add a competitor to the comparison, the result becomes more visual.
As you can see, the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X naturally defeated the Xeon Platinum 8280. These CPUs are not direct competitors, since one is 64-core and the other is only 28-core. But the high performance of the AMD CPU and the difference in price by 2.5 times are not in favor of the Intel processor making the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X a real find for those who are able to find the rational use of all the power of this CPU.
