Benchmarking the latest AMD Threadripper Pro 7000 WX-Series processors shows that the latest high-end processor has well and truly captured Intel’s crown as the king of workstation performance.
The 96 hearts Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX performed significantly better in a series of tests compared to the 56-core Intel Xeon W9-3495X processor, based on testing by Storage Review.
The AMD processor was installed in an HP Z6 G5 A workstation while the Intel chip was installed in the Dell Precision 7960 system. Both units, which are among the best processors on the market, were combined with a Nvidia 6000 Yes graphics card and 128 GB of RAM. The AMD chip achieved a score of 2,655 in the single-threaded Geekbench 6 benchmark, compared to 2,302 achieved by the Intel Xeon W9-3495X processor. But on the multithreaded score, AMD’s entry dominated with 24,519 compared to a score of just 18,157, likely due to the large number of cores in the processor compared to Intel’s chip.
AMD vs Intel: which is the best processor for professionals?
The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000 WX series, which goes on sale from November 21, features the 7995WX processor, which has a base clock speed of 2.5 GHz and a maximum boost of 5.1 GHz. This is in addition to PCIe 5.0 connectivity and eight memory channels with support for DDR5 RAM up to 5,200 MT/s.
The Intel Xeon W9-3495X processor, on the other hand, is slightly underpowered by the looks of it, with a base frequency of 1.9 GHz going up to 4.8 GHz on turbo. It also supports eight memory channels and can support DDR5 RAM, but only up to 4,800 MT/s.
It’s fair to say that Intel’s processor is no slouch, having broken a world record in March this year. breathe the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5995WX in the Cinebench R23 benchmark.
Nevertheless, Intel was once the undisputed performance champion for workstations and servers, with AMD being more of an underdog. But things have changed as we move towards 2024, and AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX processor is no match for the most powerful Intel processor when it comes to powering the Intel processor. best workstations.
Results generated in Storage Review testing led the publication to call HP’s AMD-equipped workstation “unstoppable for almost any task.” It can also handle workloads typically handled by servers.
