Intel i9 10920X Crushes AMD’s Threadripper 2920X in Leaked Benchmarks


November is measuring up to be quite a battleground for high-end desktop processors with the release of the Threadripper 3000 series and Intel’s Cascade Lake-X processors. With the launch just a few days away, more and more leaks have been surfacing around the new Core-X HEDT processor family. The most recent among these is the 12-Core i9 10920X benchmarks being leaked.

The Cascade Lake-X CPUs are still based on the 14nm++ process. The 10nm based Ice Lake processors making use of the Sunny Cove cores are slated for a 2020 launch, and the Ice Lake-X processors aren’t expected until Q2 2020. While the 10-Core 10900X and the 18-Core flagship 10980XE have already been leaked, the 12-Core 10920X benchmarks give us a pretty clear idea regarding the Cascade Lake-X line-up.

i9 10920X benchmarks Intel

Compared to a 12-Core Ryzen Threadripper 2920X, the i9 10920X scores significantly higher. While the former only manages 4746 points in single-threaded loads and 33655 in multi-threaded loads, the 10920X pulls ahead with 5339 points in single-threaded loads and 44046 points in multi-threaded loads. That is an approximate 12% increase in single-threaded and 30% in multi-threaded workloads. Astonishingly, it even manages to outperform the 16-Core 2950X in both single and multi-threaded workloads.

While we still can’t make detailed conclusions based on a Geekbench 4 test, it does gives us a clear idea of Intel’s upcoming Cascade Lake-X line-up. Judging by the benchmarks, Intel may well be able to deliver on their promise of high-performance processors. However, the Threadripper 3000 CPUs by AMD are also set to launch around the same time-frame and it will be more interesting to see how both juggernauts of the enthusiast CPU market stack-up against each other.

According to Intel, the Cascade Lake-X CPUs will be approximately twice as faster as their Skylake-X counterparts. Based off of past trends, we can expect the flagship 10980XE to be priced around the $1,000 mark. Things haven’t looked this interesting in the CPU space for a long time and we can thank both AMD and Intel to bring forth a new shift in the market.

I've damaged way too many processors than I'd like to admit. Music and Sim Racing keep me sane; that is until I get a strange itch to tinker with stuff again.
