How good is Zen 2 based Ryzen 9 CPU? Its better than king of threads i.e. Threadripper 2950X. At least that’s what the early geekbench listing shows.
Now this should not be surprising, in fact, it would have been kind of sad if Ryzen 9 3950X would lag behind as both these CPUs have 16 cores and 32 threads. The clock speeds are also similar with a base clock of both the CPU at 3.5GHz. Its the boost frequency where Ryzen 9 takes the cake. The listing shows Ryzen 9 3950X outperforming Threadripper 2950X by 14.3% in single thread and 3.9% when counting mutithreaded workload.
This gives us confidence that Zen 2 based Threadrippers will be the best value for money HEDT CPU considering Ryzen 9’s performance. Further to note that Ryzen 9 is outperforming Threadripper with 75W less TDP. Ryzen 9 could pose to be cheaper alternative to those who can’t afford Threadripper CPU.
Zen 2 architecture brings upliftment in IPC and along with TSMC’s 7 nm manufacturing process also sips less power.
