Average Bench: 106% (11th of 1128)

Based on 5,921 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00800F11 Model: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 16-Core Processor

AMD’s 16 core, 32 thread Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is finally here to seize the throne for high end desktop processors. The 1950X is the flagship of the Zen based Threadripper series which also includes the 12 core 1920X and the 8 core 1900X. The 1950X has a stock clock of 3.4 GHz increasing to a maximum single core boost of 4.0 GHz and features quad channel DDR4 and 64 PCI Express lanes. This processor is effectively two Ryzen 7 1800Xs glued together with Infinity Fabric (AMD’s scalable interconnecting technology), making the 1950X one of the physically largest CPUs on the consumer market. If you are considering this CPU, you will need a new X399 motherboard with a TR4 socket. Early benchmarks show the 1950X competing with Intel’s similarly priced i9-7900X. Whilst the 7900X has slightly higher single and quad core scores (10%-15%), the 1950X is around 35% faster for multi-core workloads. Content creators, and other core intensive task masters will not be disappointed. [Aug '17 CPUPro]

There is no competition with this CPU. Same price as i9-7900X yet 20% faster, consumes less power, and produces less heat.

Comment  amdvsintel2017.blogspot.com/...

"Intel 7900x wins and is way stronger and faster quad core and way stronger and faster singel core better even for gaming aswell and better as desktop computer and uses 22 percent less energy and were cheaper compared to Amd tr 1950x" "I just looked at gaming benchmark and stopped reading there because as i thought Intel CPUs are killing Thread Ripper in gaming. As far as content creation, naturally having 16/32 setup will be faster than Intel 10/20 but again do you really need more than 10/20 cores. I don't and i heavily use PC for gaming, programming, web design, video/audio encoding. Overall Intel 7900x is better value and all around CPU. But if you are just in gaming 7700k is just enough. Thanks for review, and hello x299 platform. Gaming vs. Content Creation mode through Software is just another big NO NO to me knowing how crappy AMD software is.I love Intel even more...all you have to do pop CPU in and stuff works and it works well."

Comment 

I was lurking around in this site just now and wanted to see Threadripper benchmarks since I thought it was already released. Well it is - it's 9:40 AM EST August 10, the release date for Threadripper CPUs, and it seems like I'm viewing the FIRST ever benchmark of one of those cards right here. According to this one benchmark, the CPU scores 111% average bench, 111% gaming, 109% desktop, and a whopping 171% workstation. I don't know if I should be surprised by this, since the Ryzen 5 1600 and the Ryzen 3's have already impressed us so much. For reference the 20c/40t E5-2698 v4 scores a 134% for workstation.—Aug '17

Thread ripper gets more points as most software is not geared to use all 16 cores to achieve full benefits. and trying to show 140 watts for 10 cores and 180 watts for 16 cores is rubbish. i9 uses 14 watts/core where as ryzen is 11.25 watts per core

Intel has an 18 core processor that gets about 10% more performance than this, but it is $1000 more. Not sure who in their right mind would buy an intel i9 over Ryzen options when the price is so different and performance not so much. I love intel for gaming and have the i7-8700K, but for video editors and/or media professionals AMD is the clear winner in this category for best value.

Extremely fast

I absolutely love this CPU - it manages to chew through rendering (hobby) & data analysis & ML (work) tasks like no tomorrow, and manages to put my R7 1800X to shame even in single threaded performance (better ram support helps a LOT - managed to get it running at 3466MTs). On top of that, its been beating my 1080tis in Blender Cycles rendering. The huge amount of PCIe bandwidth and memory bandwidth is also absolutely wonderful. Plus, it runs games just fine (Though I'm gpu bottlenecked on my current setup, since I run at 4k) All for just $999!

Price point now massively better and the benchmark software is now being optimised for Ryzen so scores will improve over the already max optimised intel variants.
