Intel’s sets the race again on their new release of processor based on Skylake minuscule architecture to compete with AMD recent launched Ryzen 1950X Threadripper based on zen architecture. Intel is taking the edge over AMD in terms cores and thread featuring 18 cores and 36 threads while AMD Threadripper features 16 cores and 32 threads and this difference is costing $1000 USD price difference.
Lets get into the benchmark result’s of both and find out which one is worthy regarding to their price and performance.
Their are total of six test in combine:
- Test in multi-threaded mode.
- Test in single-threaded mode.
Multi-threaded mode test
AMD’s $1000 tag Threadripper is absolute hitting the benchmark with a considerable results against the Intel $2000 tag processors. Well AMD has both cards in hand now Intel is legging behind both in price and performance. The fight is not over yet let’s check into the other benchmark too.
Single-threaded mode test
Intel is ahead of AMD in single core that due to Intel processor clock speed per core but the lead is not as efficient as AMD’s lead in multi-core. The second test is a well fought battle for AMD and cannot be called a defeat.
According to benchmark result AMD manages to 42% in Cinebench R15 and no less than 47% in multi-core test and was lag behind with low margin in single core. Taking the price and performance parallel it will be easy to conclude that AMD Threadripper is in hefty lead. And it will be a smart choice to spend your penny on AMD rather than Intel.
