The Current Linux Performance On 22 Intel / AMD Desktop Systems
The AVX-heavy Himeno pressure solver is one of the most extreme cases of Intel's superior Advanced Vector Extensions performance.
In the Stockfish chess benchmark, the 2990WX comes out to being almost nine times faster than the A10-7870K APU.
The Linux x86_64 kernel build times ranged from taking 500 seconds on a Haswell Core i3 to just over 30 seconds with the Threadripper 2990WX and Core i9 7980XE.
The spread is similar with C-Ray ray-tracing.
