AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X Sisoft Sandra Results Leaked

In just a few short hours, AMD will release their new Ryzen Threadripper processors. After years away from the high-end enthusiast market, AMD is ready to re-enter the market. Kicking it all off, we have the 3 Ryzen Threadripper processors launching on August 10th. So far, we’ve seen benchmarks for the top end 16 core 32 thread 1950X. Just a bit before launch, we are getting a glimpse of what the 1920X offers.
Threadripper is made up of up of 4 CCX with 2 dies in total. Due to the new Infinity Fabric MCM design, the performance characteristics are different than Ryzen. It also goes without saying that the new Zen architecture has a lot of its own quirks. Depending on the workload, it can be a near match for Intel or fall beyond by a good margin. The 1920X, in particular, is a 12 core 24 thread CPU. Since it does not have 2 full dies, it will be interesting to see how performance plays out.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X Performs as Expected
The SiSoft Sandra results are for the Arithmetic, Multi-Media and Cryptography tests. In Arithmetic, it scores 318.58 GOPs, 670.91 MPix/s in Multi-Media and 30.11 GB/s in Cryptography. In both Arithmetic and Multi-Media, the scores are impressive and on par with the 10 core 20 thread Intel i9 7900X. This about we can expect from Zen given the architectural lead Intel still has. In Cryptography though, the 1920X pulls through and exceeds expectations. This is about what we expected given AMD’s own impressive numbers. For $200 less, it should fare well against the 7900X.
One note of caution is that SiSoft Sandra is focused on obtaining the peak theoretical performance. Depending on the workload, Threadripper may perform widely differently. This is especially true for workloads that require a lot of collaboration between threads. Due to Infinity Fabric, it will be interesting to see what types of workloads will run into inter-core communication bottlenecks.
