AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X terrifies every CPU in Geekbench's multi-core test apart from the Threadripper 3970X and Intel Xeon W-3175X
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.
