AMD France lists Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX performance numbers

AMD has accidentally revealed some performance data for their upcoming Ryzen 2990WX processor, a processor which is said to have 32-cores, 64-threads and a price tag of $1,799.

Today, Intel's flagship X299 processor is their i9-7980XE. This CPU is an 18-core processor and ships today at a price tag that is similar to AMD's rumoured Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX, giving AMD a considerable core/thread count advantage, assuming recent specification leaks are correct.    

AMD France has accidentally revealed some information about their Ryzen Threadripper 2nd Generation 2990WX, showcasing a Cinebench R15 score of 5,099. This setup delivers a performance advantage of 53% over Intel's flagship i9-7980XE, which scored 3,335 points at stock. 

Both tests were conducted using similar hardware setups, using Samsung 850 Pro SSDs, 4x8GB of 3200MHz DDR4 memory, a GTX 1080 graphics card and the same version of Windows 10 64-bit.

Assuming this Cinebench score and AMD's leaked Threadripper 2nd Generation pricing is correct, AMD has delivered a major blow to Intel's hardware lineup, offering much more value for money than their competition while also providing a performance advantage of over 50% when using a highly multi-threaded workload.

The scariest thing for Intel is that they simply can not compete with AMD on price. Their manufacturing technique of single monolithic chips is way more costly than AMDs. AMD being able to use almost every chip it produces means a much higher yield and much lower costs. Were an all out price war to happen, Intel would not stand a chance.Quote

Sometimes when you pull a stunt like the 5GHZ OC trying to steal AMD's thunder, it will come back and bite you in the butt.Quote
