Geekbench is the latest synthetic benchmark to experience the processing power of AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, with the 64-core monster tearing the multi-core test to shreds. However, the incredible score of 22,045 points still left it trailing its Castle Peak brethren, the Threadripper 3970X, and the Intel workstation processor Xeon W-3175X.
Daniel R Deakin,

It appears the vaunted AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X has now appeared on Geekbench, after recently being spotted on UserBenchmark. The HEDT chip was being put through its paces as part of a system that utilized an Asus ROG Zenith II Extreme motherboard and according to the Geekbench entry a whopping 262,144 MB of RAM. (The ROG Zenith II Extreme can support 8x DIMM at a maximum of 256 GB.)

Of course, Geekbench entries have been known to be fake, so it’s pinch of salt time. However, the single-core score recorded for the soon to be released Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, 1,208 points, is hardly outstanding.  It’s the multi-core score of 22,045 points that is worth pointing out; a great result that should be expected from a powerful chip with 64 cores to play with.

In Geekbench’s processor benchmark charts, this mighty score is only topped by the 32-core Ryzen Threadripper 3970X on 22,916 points and the 28-core Intel Xeon W-3175X on 23,521 points. It seems reasonable to expect more core score from the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, and we will likely see some much more impressive results for this CPU coming out of Geekbench soon.

My interest in technology began after I was presented with an Atari 800XL home computer in the mid-1980s. I especially enjoy writing about technological advances, compelling rumors, and intriguing tech-related leaks. I have a degree in International Relations and Strategic Studies and count my family, reading, writing, and travel as the main passions of my life. I have been with Notebookcheck since 2012.
