AMD Ryzen 9 7900X / Ryzen 9 7950X Benchmarks Show Impressive Zen 4 Linux Performance
AI benchmark boasted big speed-ups for the Ryzen 9 7900 series thanks to the AVX-512 with Zen 4.
Some deep learning workloads like NCNN were showing Intel Alder Lake still performing admirably well against the brand new Zen 4 processors. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D with 3D V-Cache performs very well for NCNN.
But in more AI workloads we now see Zen 4 leading over Intel's Alder Lake and very significant uplift over Zen 3.
Intel's oneDNN neural network library in particular has shown outright massive speed-ups with the 7900X/7950X thanks to being well tuned for AVX-512.
