AMD Ryzen 9 3950X ES confirmed as Geekbench-wrecking record-breaker
We reported on some incredible results on Geekbench lately that had been amassed by a system known only as “AMD Myrtle” on the benchmark database. The single-core result was a huge 5,868 points, but that soon paled into comparison against the massive multi-core test score of 61,072 points. Geekbench entries can be tampered with, but thanks to an HWBOT submission, this particular record appears to be genuine.
According to the system user, blueleader, the CPU in question was the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X (ES). The single-core score puts the processor into the realm of chips like the Intel Core i5-9600K and the i7-8700K. But the multi-core score places the Matisse CPU way beyond anything listed on Geekbench’s latest charts.
But it appears not everyone submits their results to Geekbench’s charts, as the current world record score is 84,070 points by a system featuring a Xeon W-3175X – but that Intel beast comes with the advantage of having 28 cores. The Ryzen 9 3950X’s 16 cores still perform magnificently, and the multi-core score of 61,072 puts it in 12th place in HWBOT’s Hall of Fame.
