Now that AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper 1950X samples are hitting reviewers, with another 48 hours until the review embargo lifts, we're seeing more and more benchmark results on it... and it's not looking good for Intel.


Ryzen Threadripper 1950X smashes the Core i9-7900X in Passmark CPU Mark, with a score of 42,233 against Intel's score of just 28,872. Remember that AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is a 16C/32T part, versus the 7900X as a 10C/20T part... but they are both $1000 processors.

When it comes to single-core benchmarks, the Core i9-7900X is still superior, with Cinebench R15 results of 188 versus 173 on the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X.
