AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X 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.
Here we see most tests with a clear 50%-90% lead with the 3990X versus the 3970X. That is overall a great result. The CPU PhotoWorxx test shows a case, again, where the Threadripper 3990X is more in-line with other 28-32 core offerings. This pattern of having great results in some areas and acceptable results in others is one that we see repeating. If you remember our monster truck example from the introduction, this is good at crushing cars and jumping dirt ramps, but merely OK on grocery runs.
Next, we are going to look at our Linux benchmark results.
