AMD Ryzen 9 3950X with 61K points is the Fastest Processor on Geekbench, Destroys Intel’s 18-Core i9-9980XE

So, as AMD’s new 16-core Zen 2 flagship has now been officially launched, we now know for a fact that the Ryzen 3000 lineup won’t be limited to the 12-core 3900X. According to AMD’s first-party benchmarks, the Ryzen 9 3950X is faster than Intel’s i9-9960X, but as per a new Geekbench score, the 7nm AMD flagship might be even more powerful in certain scenarios. It scores a mammoth 61,072 points in the multi-core test which is the highest for any consumer CPU, period. The closest Intel competitor is the 18-core i9-9980XE (with 46618 points) which gets left far behind with a margin of more than 14K points, all the while costing more than twice as much (Ryzen 3950X~$749, i9-9980XE~$2000+).

The best part is that this is an early sample, slower than the final chips that will hit the market. We are looking at a base clock of 3.29GHz and a boost of 4.29, while the 3950X in its final state runs at 4.7GHz when under load. Despite that, however, the single core performance and the IPC of the 16-core AMD flagship is higher than the 9th Gen Intel lineup. Only the higher clocked i7s and i9s manage to match it in the single-core test. Furthermore, the chip is running on an X470 board and the cache size along with the Matisse codename confirm that this indeed is the Ryzen 9 3950X, and not a future Threadripper part. Here are the multi-core and single-core performance charts:

I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and playing games.

  1. Great news for AMD lovers like me.
    Hey Areej I have been following you, techquilla and your deviantart account and appreciate your efforts. Keep up. And I too love Carl Jung’s books.

  2. I’m planning to get a pc after i get a job. My budget is roughly $1500 or so. I’ve been following your site frequently. Now i have come to the conclusion that AMD is the one! Only with AMD, i can get an overkill for the price. I don’t play games that much(I play COD:Black ops on my i5-7200u laptop ?). I do use photoshop & lightroom for photo editing, nothing professional though. For me, i think a Ryzen 3700x on a X470 mobo with 32GBs of ram and 500GB ssd will be more than enough for me, don’t you think? I will be ready to shell out almost $400 for a gpu though.
