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










AMD had the lead in Handbrake 4K encoding at stock and maintains it in our clock for clock tests, but the margin is smaller. Intel had the lead in Handbrake transcoding, and the margin is still maintained when they are equalized.


In ScienceMark Intel's offering is faster. In SuperPU we see Intel's offering is significantly faster, and that isn't just because SuperPI is a single core benchmark, it also greatly relies on memory latency (where Intel shines).
