AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X AIDA64 CPU Benchmarks
Benchmark pages of AIDA64 Extreme provide several methods to measure system performance. These benchmarks are synthetic, so their results show only the theoretical (maximum) performance of the system.
CPU and FPU benchmarks of AIDA64 Extreme are built on the multi-threaded AIDA64 Benchmark Engine that supports up to 1280 simultaneous processing threads. It also supports multi-processor, multi-core and SMT (Hyper-Threading) enabled systems. More information about these benchmarks can be found here.
In the SHA3 test, we see Intel CPUs, particularly the Intel Xeon W-3275 perform extremely well. Otherwise, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X performs at or near the top of every chart. While we did not do the longest and most exhaustive test suite on the new Threadripper in Windows, we wanted to at least get some sense of performance. We also wanted to calibrate what we were seeing in Linux with what we saw in Windows. With the previous generation, the Windows scheduler had a harder time with the 2990WX‘s unique NUMA topology. Here, we are seeing the impact of the single I/O die as the result is top tier performance in Windows.
Next, we are going to look at our Linux benchmark results.
