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 [19659041] 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.

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. [19659041] Gaming

World of Tank Benchmark Antony Leather

World of Tanks is a GPU-bound game, but there are still some differences with Intel's gaming capabilities that offer a few extra frames per second , [19659064] Far Cry 5 Benchmark Antony Leather

Interestingly, Far Cry 5 seems to prefer higher frequencies, as here too the Core i9-7900X languishes in midfield alongside the Threadripper-2920X. However, the 2970WX was a long way back.

Deus Ex: Human Shared Benchmark Antony Leather

Deus Ex was a similar story to Far Cry 5 with some noticeable discrepancies between the CPUs, but it's the WX. The 2920X and 2950X threadrippers see some overclocking gains, who bring them to the top of the graphics.

Power Consumption Antony Leather

Power consumption has never been a strength of Threadripper, and you'll surely need a large all-in-one chiller to handle the 2970WX, especially if you want to overclock it. I managed 4.1GHz with 1.41V, which saw the power consumption hit 695W at full load. while the 2920X 4.1GHz managed with 1.425V, drew a maximum of 449 W.

Conclusion

I could cut my 2990WX and 2950X rating conclusion here, as it would read very similarly. The 12 core thread ripper 2920X offers an outstanding value compared to Intel's HEDT CPUs, especially the Core i9-7900X, which is convincing in any test that relies on multithreaded performance in terms of performance or value, or both. There are, however, some cases of Intel's Core i9-9900K squaring up to the 2920X. For example, in Adobe Premier Pro, the two CPUs are evenly matched, which means that when you create and play video, you primarily choose the 9900K option because it's cheaper and faster in games, and it works a million miles in Premier Pro removed in Cinebench either. The Threadripper 2950X is still the right CPU if you want the best performance in software like Premier Pro, which is much cheaper than the Core i9-7980XE, but not too far in terms of performance and in a league other than Intel with 10 cores and under.

The Thread Ripper 2970WX is a difficult proposition. Despite the boost that Ryzen Master's new dynamic Local Access mode offers, it's still slower in games and many mainstream applications. This leaves it in the same position as the 2990WX, despite additional gains from Nvidia's Gaming Bux Fixes for the WX series; it's only worth considering using Cinebench, Blender or POV-Ray. It's an incredible value here, though you will see lower frame rates if you also use this system for games.
