16-core Ryzen 3000 processor posts spectacular score on Cinebench R15
According to a video from AdoredTV, a 16-core Ryzen 3000 processor has been tested on the Cinebench R15 benchmark and returned some astonishing results. The Zen 2-based CPU managed to achieve 4,278 points while being overclocked on all cores at a clock rate of 4.2 GHz. Although AdoredTV claims the source of the benchmark screenshot is reliable, it’s important to retain some skepticism here.
Of course, it’s important to put this high score into perspective, to show exactly how powerful this upcoming Ryzen 3000 processor from AMD really is. In our Cinebench R15 tests (specifically, CPU Multi 64Bit), AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX scored 4,376 points. That’s less than a hundred points above what this mysterious 16-core Zen 2 beast managed. It’s also important to point out here that the Threadripper 2970WX has 24 cores and 48 threads.
We have some other scores to help demonstrate what a triumphant result this is for the 16-core AMD Ryzen 3000. For instance, Intel’s Skylake-X Core i9-7900X did pretty well in the same benchmark; this desktop processor amassed 2,148 points. It only has 10 cores/20 threads to utilize in the multithread test, but it’s still destroyed by the 4,278 points of the Zen 2 chip from AMD. Other Threadripper processors unsurprisingly do well in this particular benchmark, but none of them apparently come close to this incredible Ryzen 3000 CPU.
