First up was Rodinia Lava MD where for this OpenMP, highly-threaded workload the Threadripper 1950X is right out of the gates much faster than the 20-thread i9-7900X. While costing the same, the extra six cores / twelve threads of the 1950X are of much benefit to this highly threaded workload.

While most of you don't have "embarrassingly parallel" real-world workloads, when firing up NPB's EP.C workload for fun, the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X comes out as 24% faster than the Core i9 7900X.

A bit more of a real-world workload for the Threadripper processor is with John The Ripper where its Blowfish performance was 8% better than the Core i9 7900X.

But on a performance-per-dollar basis with John The Ripper, the Ryzen 7 1800X leads.

The Ryzen Threadripper 1950X in this scenario was actually consuming less power than the Core i9 7900X system...

So while it has a 180 Watt TDP for this 16 core / 32 thread CPU, with this highly parallel workload from John The Ripper it was delivering the leading performance-per-Watt.
