In Blender, the 3950X once again takes the cake from the 9980XE that costs more than double. It wins in HandBrake as well for transcoding down to 4K, but gets slightly beat in encoding. It does exceedingly well in ScienceMark.

In SuperPI, we see some improvements compared to the 3900X as it offers a 100MHz higher Turbo clock.
