As the release of Ryzen Threadripper comes close, fans are more and more excited. We already knew it was going to offer lots of performance – and here are the benchmarks, which report the Ryzen Threadripper being a whopping 45% faster than Intel’s Core i9 7900X.
In Cinebench R15 (Multi-Core) we see a 30% higher score.
In Geekbench3, 64bit (Multi-Core) we see a 32% higher score.
In Passmark CPU Mark, we see a 32% higher score
In terms of single-threaded operations the Threadripper was found to be 5% slower – because of the i9 7900X’s higher boost clock speed which is 4.5GHz.
But in terms of Multi-Threaded tasks the Threadripper anhiliates the opposition, being 40% higher on average in the tests conducted.
