The 1950X is the flagship of the Zen based Threadripper series which also includes the and the 8 core 1900X. Manufacturers are all set to launch the X399 motherboards for the Threadripper line-up, this summer. Our calculated values are checked against thousands of individual. Seriously Intel, where were you hiding all these enthusiast grade processors? The 12-core Intel Core X-series processor will be available starting on August 28th. Between these two stupid-expensive chips, it's a tie. Gaming, photo editing, music, video encoding and editing, but its primary use, gaming. That leaves you to make the decision based on which of these categories are more important to you in your daily use.
The 1950X has a stock clock of 3. Many of the X299 motherboards that you can buy cost as much or more than the average X399 motherboard. Intel is naming all their processors having 10 or more cores, after the i9. Pricing and Availability Thankfully, this time around, Intel did give out all the details regarding the pricing and availability of their upcoming enthusiast processor line-up. Again, we show no surprises here. Both platforms support quad-channel memory configurations.
The company will take full advantage of the X399 platform for their upcoming processors. Think of it as an automated feature that will extract the most performance possible from the silicon given the capabilities of your , and. We see Turbo Boost doing a better job than our hand overclock, which is to be expected since we expect higher core clocks in lightly threaded loads. Although Intel still has the performance crown with the processor, the company is not planning to rest on their laurels. But if you zoom out and assume that you want the best of everything after paying an astounding premium for this class of hardware, then we come to a dead heat. These chips are just too expensive to be worthwhile for gamers.
Meanwhile, the 14- to 18-core Intel Core X-series processors will begin shipping on September 25th. There are also many more choices if you're shopping for an Intel board, as well. But the fan had to spin at full speed to keep up, which made for a noisy computing environment. That said, there is value to be found in these metrics. It looks like we might have to wait longer, for more official details. We again see Turbo Boost doing a better job than our hand overclock, which is to be expected since we expect higher core clocks in lightly threaded loads.
All the i9 X-series processors will make use of the latest X299 chipset. With 1-2 cores, you can expect 4. Mindblown Thank you for your perspective concerning this. Test Setup Our competing processors are all charted below. After years of waiting, consumers are finally excited that the processor war is all set to begin again, once they hit the stores. As far as availability is concerned, the Ryzen Threadripper is all set to launch this summer, so you can expect these processors to hit the shelves along with Radeon Vega, by the end of August.
I still haven't figured it out, but the Z390 chipset is supposed to have 20 or 24 lanes of it's own - been meaning to research that. Depends largely on what you plan to use the system for. We calculate which measures real world performance for typical consumers. Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Whilst the 7900X has slightly higher single and quad core scores 10%-15% , the 1950X is around 35% faster for multi-core workloads. I can't speak to gaming, as i'm not a gamer fwiw I still haven't figured it out, but the Z390 is supposed to have 20 or 24 lanes of it's own - been meaning to research that.
This workload extends across all cores available. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices offer more computational power. I was attracted by the higher clock speed of the 9900k, as the 5960X ran at 4. So I guess it depends how much of that you plan on doing. Again, these numbers should come as no surprise.
Given our experience with Dhrystone, there are no surprises to be found here. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance. . And video rendering happens to be one of the best examples of just such a heavily threaded task. Make sure you let us know, by simply dropping a few words in the comments section down below.
