The wPrime 1024M benchmark has a new world record holder. An AMD Ryzen 9 3900X owned by user jordan.hyde99 claimed the fastest time in the benchmark for a 12-core CPU this weekend, besting the Intel Core i9-7920X. Perhaps more impressive is the fact that the Ryzen 9 3900X was clocked 330 MHz lower than the 7920X.
Sam Medley,

AMD claimed yet another win against Intel, this time nabbing a world record in one of the most popular CPU benchmarks. Australian overclocker jordan.hyde99 set a new wPrime world record with his Ryzen 9 3900X. What’s even more impressive is that he did it with a lower clock than the previous record holder.

The former world-record holder was a 12-core, 24-thread Intel Core i9-7920X, which managed to complete wPrime’s 1024M benchmark in 35.693 seconds. To crunch those numbers that quickly, the 7920X was overclocked to 5.955 GHz. The Ryzen 9 3900X, which also has 12 cores and 24 threads, was overclocked, but only to 5.625 GHz. It still edged out the Core i9-7920X by completing the benchmark in 35.517 seconds. 

AMD’s journey over the past few years has been remarkable. The company has come a long way from the FX-8350, which was once seen as a heavily compromised “budget” CPU, to build some of the fastest processors on the market while still keeping pricing competitive.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
