Out of the Box Performance: CINEBENCH, wPrime, and AIDA64
All CPUs are tested with Out of the Box Performance, which means that no settings were altered, so basically default CPU and RAM speeds. The motherboard's VRM is cooled by a 120mm cooling fan. The 2990WX uses the 360mm AIO water cooler, the 2950X uses AMD's Wraith Ripper, and all the other CPUs use a 240mm AIO watercooler.
Yes, the 2990WX destroys everything in CINEBENCH, and when you enable Precision Boost Overdrive (PBOD) it destroys even more. Single core performance is also really strong because of XFR2. In wPrime we see the same scaling with the high core count CPUs. What we like to see are the improvements the 2950X offers over its predecessor, and they are noticeable.
AIDA64's IOPS and FLOPS show Intel's lead, and the scoring of that particular benchmark changes between versions, but in this case, the versions are all the same. Memory bandwidth is interesting, especially with the 2950X, where it's doing surprisingly well at default speeds. Latency improvements can be seen between the 2950X and 1950X, and we can see AMD is trying hard to close the gap between themselves and Intel. It's also possible that latency moves around depending on how Windows scheduled the benchmark.
