    It would be also interesting a comparison at three with the Power9...

      Nice test. I would also like to see a comparison between CPUs with close MSRPs. Something like a 10940X vs a 3950X would be good to see.

        Unfortunately and as said in the article, I don't have a 3950X and when checking with AMD on Monday it didn't sound certain whether I would get one... I guess 3950X supplies really are tight.

          Intel's chip is HEDT, the lowest HEDT AMD CPU is the 3960X.

            Very nice reporting Micheal. All the whining about processor comparisons don’t mean much to me anymore. The simple fact is for a long time it wasn’t even rational to consider AMD based on performance needs. Now it is foolish not to consider AMD for just about any work load. That is a most refreshing change in the situation.

              And again.

              Compare with 'decrippled' Intel MKL

                Very impressive! No, I didn't necessarily mean the 3960X, I meant the test and the article! Nice!

                  Interesting.

                  I'd be curious to see some gaming benchmarks comparing popular, high-end AMD and Intel CPUs. The tests would all use the same graphics card. Only the CPU would change. Though... it might be worth using two graphics cards: one AMD and one NVIDIA. The different drivers might yield different CPU usage characteristics.

The same is true when comparing a single computer with 3970X versus 2 computers with 3950X.
                    This analogy is flawed imho. Threadripper comes not just with double the cores but double the memory channels and more than double PCI-E lanes.
                    Twisting your argument even further, it's overpriced compared to 3900x because it's not twice faster in single threaded appliances. They are expensive agreed, but it's not home users market anyway. Threadrippers like EPYCs are meant to pay for themselves. 3900x and 3950x are monster-enough home CPUs imho.

                      No, I really meant a comparison between AMD & Intel with BOTH using ACPI-cpufreq 'performance'!
                      It would be an eye-opener for many, since Intel's P-state CPU driver really is bad, especially in the latency department; so gaming benchmarks with a focus on minimum framerates & frame-times would be quite interesting.

                      Also, do You include Google's "Web Latency Benchmark" in the PTS?
