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. VRMs on the motherboard used were actively cooled, and we used our best AIO water cooler.

CINEBENCH R15

wPrime

AIDA64 Memory Latency

We see the two additional chips dominating the CINEBENCH scores, which is what we expected. In wPrime, we see some solid results as well as it scales with core count quite nicely. In our FPU tests we see that the solid improvements, and while the 2970WX has 75% of the cores of the 2990WX, it's not 25% slower. Memory bandwidth and latency are what we would expect based on their individual design configurations.
