AMD Threadripper 1950X 19% slower than Xeon E5-2697Av4

According to Geekbench database

Although the acclaimed launch date will be somewhen during the upcoming weeks news leaks related to Threadripper are making it through almost every day. This time wccftech jumped the gun and they have found some leaks in the Geekbench database. The results are pretty similar to AMD's existing Ryzen CPUs.

Before looking at all these numbers a few things need to be clarified. First of all the chip tested is an engineering sample and not the final CPU, furthermore the DDR4 memory ran at pretty low speeds. According to Geekbench database, the upcoming AMD Threadripper 1950X at stock frequencies hits 25'539 points in the multi-core and 4'167 points in the single-core routine, while the Ryzen 7 1800X with the same memory speed is able to achieve 21'513 points in multi-core and 4'176 points in single-core.

Although the SKU of this chip doesn't match with already published information, the core count suggests that what was tested could be the upcoming flagship chip. According to the information in the Geekbench database, the Threadripper 1950X processor should pack a base CPU clock of 3.4GHz and XFR boost clock of up to 3.7/3.8GHz. Furthermore it has 32MB of L3 cache, 8MB of L2 cache, bringing us to a total of 40MB of cache. The benchmark has been run on an ASRock X399 Professional Gaming motherboard, which was shown off at Computex 2017.

According to Geekbench database, the Xeon E5-2697A v4 processor, which features the same core count and a similar boost clock of 3.6GHz frequency, scores 30’450 points in the multi-core routine. Compared to the 25’539 points Threadripper 1950X scores in same test, this means a similar Intel chip appears to be approximately 19% quicker. If these numbers are actually correct, we hope that AMD will manage to squeeze some more performance out of the cores until launch.
