Flagship AMD Ryzen Threadripper 16-core 1950X spotted on GeekBench

AMD’s upcoming flagship Ryzen Threadripper 16-core chip is bearing the model name Ryzen Threadripper 1950X (not the previously-reported 1998X). This new CPU was spotted on GeekBench 4.1.0, on an ASRock X399 Professional Gaming, paired with 16 GB of DDR4-2133 MHz memory. The 1950X was recorded clock speed was 3.40 GHz for this test, which probably is its final nominal clock speed.

The Ryzen Threadripper 1950X sample manages to score 4,167 single-thread performance, and 24,539 points in multi-threaded performance. To put these numbers into perspective, an Intel Xeon E5-2697A v4 16-core/32-thread processor based on the “Broadwell” architecture scores single-core 3,651 points and 30,450 points in multi-core performance, as you can see the Threadripper has better single core performance, and Xeon has better multicore performance. AMD is expected to launch on July 27.
