Review of AMD Threadripper 2990WX 32 cores HEDT processor

Benchmarks - Cinebench R15 and SiSoft Sandra 2018

Cinebench R15

Cinebench is a commonly used benchmark in CPU tests. The test scenario uses all of your system’s processing power to render a photorealistic 3D scene (from the viral “No Keyframes” animation by AixSponza).

This scene makes use of various algorithms to stress all available processor cores. In fact, CINEBENCH can measure systems with up to 256 processor threads.

This test scene contains approximately 2,000 objects which in turn contain more than 300,000 polygons in total, and uses sharp and blurred reflections, area lights, shadows, procedural shaders, antialiasing, and much more. The result is displayed in points (pts). The higher the number, the faster your processor.

The system is in content creation mode (default) which enables all 32 cores. The system scores 5140 CB which is way higher than the other Ryzen Threadripper. With manual overclocking of all cores to 4 GHz, it attained a score of 6052.

The Intel Core i9-7980XE scores 3348 which is 53% slower than the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX. If we were to compare it with the overclocked score of 6052, The overclocked 2990WX leads by a whopping 80.76%

Running it in gaming mode reduces it to a 8 core processor, turning it to be on par to a Ryzen 7 2700X scoring 1773 CB. With 16 cores running, it scored 3253 CB.

 

Sisoft Sandra 2018 SP1b Titanium Overall Processor Score

SiSoft Sandra is a commonly used benchmarking tool in modern computing. The overall processor score stresses the CPU with workloads including Multimedia, Cryptography, Financial Analysis, Scientific Analysis, Image processing etc.

Again, we see it leading all the at 17.04. As oc at 4 GHz resulted in a system hang, we omitted the results in the chart below. Nevertheless, a score of 17.04 is way higher then it’s first generation and surpassed that of Intel Core i9-7980XE by 3.47%
