Massive performance, but do they beat Intel?
<div _ngcontent-c14 = "" innerhtml = "
We are a few months after the first anniversary of Threadripper and AMD can be quite proud of what it has achieved with this unexpected expansion of the high-end desktop CPU Market: After bringing the new 32-core 2990WX Thread Ripper and 16-Core 2950X to the forefront, AMD has finally released its siblings and the latest parts of the second-generation thread ripper product stack – the Thread Ripper 2970WX and the 2920X.

The two new CPUs sit next to their counterparts The 2970WX offers 24 cores instead of the 32 that the 2990WX offers. However, the remaining specifications are identical – they provide 4.2GHz maximum boost and 3GHz baselines along with 64MB L3 cache and 250W TDP.
The 12 core thread ripper 2920X has only 100 MHz on the boost frequency compared to 16-wire 2950X thread ripper, with the same 3.5GHz base frequency and 32MB / L3 cache, making the largest Differences in this area are still the core number.

They also have the advantage over Intel's high-end desktop CPUs. Intel's top-end desktop CPU is the Core i9-7980XE, which costs the best part of $ 2,000, but only has 18 cores, compared to 24 for the 2970WX thread ripper, which costs $ 700 less. Meanwhile, the price tag of the Threadripper 2920X worth $ 649 costs $ 350 from the price of the Intel Core i9-7900X, which has two cores less. However, Intel might have a little trick up its sleeve, in the form of the Core i9-9900K, which outperformed the Core i9-7900X in some tests in my test, as it costs less than the Threadripper 2920X and could have lower platform costs with cheaper boards and memory There may be some competition, at least if you do not want to use the 64 PCI e-lanes from AMD's X399 platform or quad-channel memory.
Performance  I used the MEG X399 Creation motherboard from MSI to test the new threadripper CPUs, along with 32GB Corsair Vengeance 3000MHz RGB memory, a Samsung 960 Pro M.2 SSD, and a Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Edition graphics card. I used Nvidia's 399.24 driver, which fixed a bug that affected the performance of the WX series thread-ripper CPUs and improved performance by up to 50%, as you can read here. AMD has also released a new version of Ryzen Master – it's overclocking software that introduces a dynamic local memory access mode. I did not use that for all the tests because it turned out to be a bit of a hit or a miss, but I repeated a few benchmarks with it. I should also add that not all CPUs appear in all benchmarks because I did not have the time to test them all, and many mainstream CPUs are simply not relevant when handling workstation workloads.

POV-Ray Benchmark Antony Leather
The Thread Ripper 2970WX follows in the footsteps of the 2990WX and enjoys a big lead over it the pricier Core i9-7980XE in POV-Ray, with a decent boost after overclocking it to 4.1GHz. It was also twice as fast as the Core i9-7900X. The 2920X now offered some decent profits over its predecessor and was much faster than the Core i9-7900X.
Blender Benchmark Antony Leather
Blender was a similar story, though the Intel Core i9-7980XE was once overclocked to fit the 2970WX, but that's hardly relevant considering the latter is a huge amount cheaper. The 2920X also saw some competition from the Core i99-7900X, but only if it was overclocked.
Cinebench Multi-Core-Test Antony Leather
Cinebench loves cores and threads, so the Threadripper WX series CPUs are great again here and there, the 2970WX is far ahead of Intel's 18-core flagship – Gaps that are not really closed even by overclocking the Core i9-7980XE. Interestingly, the Core i9-9900K grabs the 2920X on the heel, especially at the production speed.
Cinebench Single Core Test Antony Leather
AMD has certainly improved single-thread performance compared to the first-generation thread ripper. However, it is behind Intel, with both the Core i9-7900X and the Core i9-7980XE offering significant benefits.
Adobe Premier Pro Benchmark Antony Leather
The hugely popular Premier Pro is showing some decent gains from the Threadripper 2920X, but it's matched by the Intel Core i9-9900K, which is not a good result for AMD CPU is cheaper and also has much lower platform costs. Once again, the WX series CPUs are not competitive here and I should add that AMD's dynamic local access mode did not help either.

HandBrake Test Antony Leather
Even in the new dynamic memory access mode, HandBrake did not notice any improvement as the 2970WX, given its core number and scaling from Intel to Intel to the Core i9-7980XE, which occupies the top position, is still below average.  Gaming
