Two more days to go till the embargo lifts on AMD Threadripper CPUs. But it’s exciting for us to share this news with you guys that a user on Reddit named “calling the wolf” shared interesting benchmarks of a tweaked Threadripper 1950X.
This dude overclocked the processor to 4.0GHz @1.25 Volts than 4.1 GHz with 1.4 Volts on. The owner overclocked this 1950X chip to 4.0GHz on all cores with a Thermaltake 3.0 liquid cooler. The motherboard used here was from ASrock, the model wasn’t specified and the 8 memory DIMMs were running at 3066MHz DDR4.
These results are not possible to be obtained by Ryzen CPU owners, at this voltage. The chip was tested on Geekbench 3.0 at 4.1GHz and scored a whopping 58391 points which break the record of 42600 points by 7900X overclocked at 4.5GHz.
Another test was run on Cinebench R15 where the 1950X at 4.0GHz managed to score 3337 points with all the cores running at 4.0GHz precisely.
In contrast to this, a similarly priced model of Intel Core i7 7900X achieves 2169 points on stock and 2464 points on 4.6GHz overclocking. In fact, 1950X has broken the world record previously set by the i7 7900X running on liquid nitrogen at 5.96GHz that scored 3327 points.
AMD with its Threadripper launch has proved that with persistence and dedication to innovation. Consumers can get much greater value for money in terms of efficient pricing and effective performance.
We’re very much excited for the launch of Threadripper line of CPUs and the benefits business and developers will be able to drive with a huge amount of cores and threads along with large size cache memory.
All for the price that’s budget savvy for the businesses. Let us know what do you think about the benchmarks in the comments section below.
