    Intel Core i9-10980XE Cascade Lake-X CPU Beats AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X in Leaked Benchmark

    Intel’s upcoming Cascade Lake-X processors are expected to provide stiff competition, at least to the existing 2nd Gen Threadripper CPUs. The flagship HEDT chip namely the Core i9-10980XE has been leaked and it seems to indicate just that. Comparing it to the Ryzen Threadripper 2950X, it manages to come out on top at a decent price point.

    Intel has already announced that it will be launching the Cascade Lake-X lineup for enthusiasts and creators in October with a much better performance per dollar ratio than their predecessors. The product stack was leaked yesterday and is as follows:

    • Intel Core i9-10900X
    • Intel Core i9-10920X
    • Intel Core i9-10940X
    • Intel Core i9-10980XE

    The 10900X is a 10 core part, with the two higher-end chips gaining two additional chips and the top-end Core i9-10980XE packing 18 cores and 36 threads.

    The Geekbench score of the Core i9-10900X was leaked yesterday, and today the same database has revealed the benchmarks of the Cascade Lake-X flagship, the Core i9-10980XE. The latter boasts 18 cores and 36 threads running at a base clock of 2.46GHz and a boost of 4.70GHz. The L3 cache is pegged at 24.75MB and L2 at 18MB (1MB per core).

    Seeing that the chip ran on an X299 board, the upcoming Cascade Lake-X processors will use the same chipset as their predecessors. The Core i9-10980XE scores 51.5K in the multi-threaded bench and 5,381 in the single-threaded test. This is faster than all the 2nd Gen Threadrippers as well as the Skylake-X CPUs. However, I’d suggest not considering the 32-Core 2990WX as Geekbench doesn’t scale well with higher core counts. The TR 2950X being a 16 core part gives a good indication of overall performance in this test.

    The last unknown aspect of Intel’s HEDT lineup is the price. Intel recently claimed a relative performance per dollar gain of up to 2x over Skylake X, and if that really pans out then we can expect a price tag of approximately $1,000 for the flagship Core i9-10980XE. If that happens, it’s almost certain that AMD will have something even faster at the same price point (64 Core Zen 2 based Ryzen Threadripper?)

    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 wondering about the vast undiscovered expanses of our universe.
