With the AMD Threadripper family just weeks away, some fortunate users seem to already have some engineering samples from early processors, and of course they are not hesitant to make use of them. So, in the online databases of GeekBench and SiSoft Sandra , you can now find performance results on these flagship processor benchmarks of this AMD family, the Threadripper 1950X. Already weeks ago we have been able to see some performance improvement that this new family of AMD high-end processors is going to bring, but this is what we are going to talk about now is more recent and, To give us an overview of the optimizations that AMD is doing on new processors.
The benchmarks of the AMD 1950X
With respect to the latest results it had published, it is interesting to see a reduction in GeekBench performance in the single-core performance benchmark, down from 4216 points to 4074. However, multi-thread performance has been greatly increased , Going from 24,723 points to 26,768. Unfortunately these numbers are still well below what we have seen in Intel’s top-of-the-line Core i9 7900X in both a core and multi-thread benchmark. Of course, even considering the Boost speed, the 1950X works much slower than the Intel 7900X, so I guess we’ll see the true potential of both processors when they can compare with Overclock, matching their operating speeds.
Having said that, it should be kept in mind that although AMD does not seem to take the throne from Intel in the higher range, these processors are still going to have a good point that can take away the hegemony of competition in the sector, and not It is something other than the price. This, of course, depends on AMD and what you want to sell (not many users will buy processors of 1000 euros or more, of course), but if they play well their cards can do a lot of damage to Intel, that is clear.
Surely AMD would prefer the “crown” because in this way, selling the “most powerful desktop processor to date” could make it more expensive – still under Intel anyway in price – since, after all, what they are looking for Is profitability, but this in part also benefits the users because if they can not win Intel in performance, they will have to win in prices.
