MSI Creator TRX40 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 Hyper-Threading enabled systems. More information about these benchmarks can be found here.

The MSI Creator TRX40 Motherboard and AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X receive the top scores, but sometimes the Intel W-3275 processor had clear advantages in fringe cases.

Next, we are going to look at the power consumption before getting to our final thoughts.

  1. Many thanks, William: Please permit me to share one of my pet peeves about NVMe.
    You will hopefully recall how multiple integrated SATA ports eventually became standard
    with full support for all modern RAID modes. It is my sincere hope that motherboard
    and storage vendors will make it an industry goal to integrate full BOOTABLE support
    for all modern RAID modes for any number of integrated M.2 ports. We have had a
    lot of success formatting SSD RAID-0 arrays with Windows drive letters C: / E: and
    with D: typically assigned to a hard-wired optical drive. We will only upgrade to
    a TR system, like this excellent MSI motherboard, unless we can do fresh OS installs
    to a fast RAID-0 array of multiple M.2 NVMe drives. Because we also rely a lot
    on large ramdisks in our workstations, we need a fast non-volatile partition
    where the latest ramdisk contents can be saved at SHUTDOWN and then
    restored quickly at the next STARTUP. The ramdisk software we are currently
    using has a neat “block” logic, which only requires saving logical blocks which
    have changed since the most recent STARTUP. Given the speed we anticipate
    with Gen4 M.2 RAID-0 arrays, the STARTUP and SHUTDOWN sequences should
    be so incredibly fast as to be almost unnoticeable! Thanks again. /s/ Paul

  2. We currently have one of these boards with a 3960X and 7 FireCuda 520 PCIe 4 2TB drives. I have configured six of them in RAID 0. I can tell you it’s stupidly fast (>20gbps synthetic disk performance)!

    I’d be curious to know what people think is the best memory option for this board.

  3. @Aaron Do you know how to build Unreal Engine 4 from source? I would love to see how fast that ThreadRipper machine can build it. My 6 core machine takes 73 minutes for reference.
