AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 16 Core, 32 Thread CPU Specifications and Performance Leaked – Clocked at 3.4 GHz Base Frequency


The first performance results of a 16 core, 32 thread AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor have just leaked out. The specifications and performance data of the Ryzen Threadripper processor give us a detailed preview of what's coming this Summer in the HEDT segment.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X Specifications and Performance Leaked

The processor that was tested is an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X. The chip features 16 cores, 32 threads and a base clock of 3.4 GHz. Based on the rumored specifications, the chip should feature boost clocks of 3.6 GHz and XFR boost clocks of 3.7 - 3.8 GHz. The chip will carry 32 MB of L3 cache and 8 MB of L2 cache which totals to 40 MB.

In terms of performance, the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X scored 4167 points in single core test. The specifics are 4081 Integer, 4025 Floating point and 4236 memory benchmark scores. Moving on to the multi-core performance, the chip scored a total of 24539 points. The specifics in this field were 28409 Integer, 33993 Floating point and 5007 memory benchmark scores. This shows that we are looking at some very high-end performance numbers from the Ryzen Threadripper series.

For comparison, we added an Intel Xeon E5-2697A V4 processor to the mix. The chip features total of 16 cores, 32 threads and a base clock of 2.6 GHz which boosts up to 3.6 GHz. It can be seen that the chip isn't a direct comparison as it has lower base clock frequency but boost clock does match the Threadripper speeds. A single Xeon 16 core chip scores 3651 points in single core performance and 30450 points in Multi-core performance. You can note that while single core scores lacks when compared to 1950X, the multi-core performance is a much higher.
