Two leading global manufacturers of AMD processorsand Intel are constantly striving to create unique high-performance systems that can destroy a competitor. Currently, it seems that the palm is moving to AMD, which introduced in November this year the Ryzen Threadripper 3000 processors (third generation).
After conducting initial tests, experts already name the top-end model of the Threadripper 3970X processor with 32 cores, the most powerful system in the world among those designed for personal computers.
A more detailed experiment conducted with the Threadripper 3970X in reduced power mode showed that the processor confidently surpasses Intel's Core i9-10980XE.
An experiment with the Ryzen Threadripper 3970X was conductedat various TDP values configured using special applications. In the basic TDP mode of 280 W, the processor operates at 3.7 GHz and 4.5 GHz in single core mode. With a decrease in TDP, a decrease in the clock frequency occurs, which, however, provides an increase in energy efficiency. So with a decrease in TDP Threadripper 3970X by 35% to 180 watts, the decrease in performance was only 10%.
When working with a TDP of 140 watts, the Ryzen processorThe Threadripper 3970X was able to show better performance than the 18-core Intel Core i9-10980XE with a TDP of 165 watts. The tests were carried out both in multi-core and single-core mode.
