AMD Ryzen Threadripper Performance Leaked

/ 2 years ago

After years of slow advances, the CPU wars are finally heating up. Both AMD and Intel are introducing significant updates to their mainstream lineup. The premium HEDT platforms are also getting a good kickstart this year as well. AMD, in particular, is building on their highly successful Ryzen architecture. This summer, AMD will release their new Threadripper HEDT CPUs. Just in time for summer, the first benchmark has leaked.

Threadripper is AMD’s answer to Intel’s dominant HEDT platform. Based off of the new Ryzen architecture, AMD is finally competitive on single threaded performance. The top end model offers 16 cores and 32 threads on the high-end platform. This is the first consumer CPU AMD has made with so many cores and builds on the earlier CCX framework established by mainstream Ryzen.

Threadripper ES Multi-Core Efficiency is Disappointing

In Geekbench 4.1.0, the 1950x scored 4216 points in the single core tests and 24723 points in the multi-core result. The chip is clocked at 3.39 GHz base and likely an unknown boost clock given the high single threaded result. The result was obtained using an ASRock X399 motherboard and unspecified DDR4. Interestingly, the L3 cache numbers don;t appear to be reported properly as they are quite high.

For single threaded performance, there isn’t much of a surprise. The 1950X manages to score just about where regular Ryzen does and as expected against Intel. The real surprise is the low score for multi-core performance, doing no better than 8 core 16 thread Ryzen. This is likely due to optimisation issues for a whole host of different systems, from RAM, cache, Infinity Fabric, motherboard and others. There is also the possibility that SMT was not enabled. Either way, AMD looks like they have a lot of work ahead to improve multi-thread efficiency. With a month or so ahead of them, hopefully, all the issues will be fixed by launch. I for one can’t wait for more cores to make their way to consumers.

    I truly believe it’s a bug and software can’t correctly read the second 8 core module in TR, because… 16x 4000 is 64000, i believe actual score will be quite less, closer to 40K, but still!

    • Chris says:

      Single core score multiplied by the number of cores rarely equals the multi core score because the processors allow a single core to run at a higher speed than all cores running at 100% usage at the same time. If single thread scores times the number of cores equaled the multi core score, you would see Xeon workstations with geekbench results in the 170,000+ range.

      • George Janiashvili says:

        Xeons have over 1 Ghz difference 🙂

        Meanwhile Threadripper gets far less single core boost, plus AMD’s SMT implementation due to CPU design gives additional 20-30% performance increase, thus giving far less of a difference between 1 core frequency *16 and allcore frequency *16*1.25

    bogus test……results must have come from CNN…

  3. Krishna L says:

    this is old news.

  4. kaz says:

    Intel fan created this. Who is stupid to do these nonsense benchmark?

  5. Guachi Choche007. says:

    inteltard created this.

    This score are low than the ryzen 1800x.

  6. Chris says:

    The 16 core Xeon E5 at a lower speed gives a geekbench result of 41025. The 22 core Xeons running at a lower speed have given results of over 57900.
