The top end CPU 1950X supports 16 cores 32 threads and 64 PCIE 3.0 lanes and quad channel memory support. Because this is a high-end desktop product and aimed at video editors, content creators and so on. According to the leak specification via the benchmarks we are looking at a chip which has a base clock of 3.4 ghz which isn’t too bad considering the sheer number of cores.
There are couple of interesting entries although one of them has now been deleted and that was back last year. The newest one however, which is known as AMD WhiteHaven has the upload date of July 5th, 2017.
Another interesting thing about this is it’s a Single-Core was 4074, Multi-Core score hits 26768. What’s really interesting if you do a little bit of Googling and do check out the older benchmark you can see that the older benchmark which was released in June 13th, 2017. Just a three weeks back and hits 4167 on the Single-thread performance. So, about a 100 points difference but the Multi-Score went up considerably.
It has about 2200 points more so, the old one was 24539. A slight caveat however comes from the memory. So, while the sheer amount of memory here because this is a Geekbenchmark so, memory is not the most intensive in terms of the amount of memory. But one slight difference is it has 32 GB of memory running at 1198mhz reported. Whereas, on the other hand the previous benchmark from June 13th, Geekbench reports memory at 1065 mhz.
If we were to do a quick comparison of the 7900X which is the fairest CPU to compare with from Intel because they are very high-end chips. The 16 and 18 cores have not been released yet so, we can’t compare it against those.
According to rumors AMD ThreadRipper is going to be noticeably cheaper than Intel. Intel 7900X 10 cores comes with a retail price of $1000 whereas, 7960X is going to cost around $1700 and the very high-end chip which is 18 cores 36 threads those are going to cost $2000. The other advantage with X399 on AMD’s platform is that all of the CPU’s have 64 PCIe lanes.
