AMD Threadripper has once again proved its existence loud and clear with the latest results leaked. There are many credible sources behind the leak and one of them is also AMD’s internal test department.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X
The processor in the discussion is AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and the specifications are as follows:
- 16 cores and 32 threads
- 3.4 GHz base clock speed and 3.6 GHz boost clock speed. Also, XFR boost clocks of 3.7 – 3.8 GHz are reported
- 32 MB of L3 cache and 8 MB of L2 cache which totals 40 MB
AMD vs. Intel
Talking about competition, we have taken Intel Core i9-7900X as an end to end competitor of Ryzen Threadripper 1950X which scored 4074 points in single core test. The score points are distributed as:
- 3933 Integer
- 3869 Floating point
- 4245 memory benchmark scores
For the multi-core performance, the chip scored a total of 26768 points which are divided as:
- 31567 Integer
- 34794 Floating point
- 5206 memory benchmark scores
SiSoftware Arithmetic and Multimedia Workloads
In the SiSoftware Arithmetic and Multimedia workloads, the Threadripper has scored 434.32 GOPS and 821.64 Mpix/s, respectively. The counterpart, Intel Core i9-7900X has scored 336.20 GOPS (Arithmetic) and 1262.68 Mpix/s (Multimedia) points.
Threadripper Series Coming Soon
These encouraging figures are for Threadripper 1950X but wait. Is it all? Definitely no! AMD is prepared to launch a complete lineup with nine SKUs. These 9 SKUs are divided as
- 2 with 16, 14, and 10 cores
- 3 with 12 cores
The 16 core chip carries a hefty price tag which is expected to be around $800 US.
The flagship model of the series is the one in discussion with 16 cores and 3400 MHz base clock speed. Also, the processor is expected to have a 155W TDP.
