AMD Threadripper vs. Intel Core i9 CPUs Clock for Clock

By: Steven Bassiri | Editorials in CPUs, Chipsets & SoCs | Posted: Oct 22, 2017 4:46 pm












Once equalized, AMD's CINEBENCH multi-core and single core performance numbers are actually closer to that of the more expensive Intel CPU. We should note that by setting all cores to 4.0GHz, we negate any Turbo or XFR over 4.0GHz. In wPrime, we see that Intel still keeps its one-second lead.


We see that clock for clock AMD's Threadripper equals Intel's Skylake-X in 64-bit integer IOPS, but in SP FLOPs it is half as fast, but we saw the same type of activity at stock. Memory bandwidth is an interesting thing, AMD's reads and writes are faster, but Intel's copy is faster. Intel's memory latency is superior, but that is because Intel doesn't have an Infinity Fabric.
