In the Stockfish and asmFish chess benchmarks, the 2950X comes in several percent faster than its predecessor while still being much stronger than the i9-7900X.

The 2950X CPU paired with the NVMe solid-state storage can build the Linux x86_64 default kernel in just 47 seconds... But wait to see how fast the 2990WX can build the kernel.

The intensity of the C-Ray multi-threaded ray-tracer was recently ramped up in its test profile to better deal with these latest Threadripper CPUs.

Even with these ray-tracing benchmarks, the Threadripper 2950X blows past the i9-7900X.
