Out of the Box Performance: CINEBENCH, wPrime, and AIDA64
AIDA64 FP and IOPS
AIDA64 Memory Bandwidth
AIDA64 Memory Latency
AMD's 3990X destroys absolutely everything by a HUGE margin. The results are even more impressive in CINEBENCH R20, and if you go to the overclocking page, you can see those results both stock and overclocked. It's crazy impressive. The craziest part is that this CPU doesn't use much more power than the 3970X, at least not at stock.
One thing AMD mentioned to us is that previous Windows 10 versions before build 1903 (with a special service pack) will not easily take advantage of all cores and threads due to limitations on upper thread/core count. However, while that is solved by simply using the latest software and OS versions, in some applications, that isn't possible.
In wPrime, we see roughly the same results as the 3970X, and that is because that is one application that is pretty old and tops out at 64 threads, so half the CPU isn't being used. We see the best FLOPS results of any CPU in our charts, taking that away from Intel, and the CPU closes the gap on IOPS. Memory bandwidth and latency are similar to that of AMD's other TRX40 CPUs.
