In addition to the latest 3DMark benchmarks tests, there are also performance metrics coming from Geekbench v5, which involved two platforms, the B450 and X570.In the B450 platform test, the AMD's Ryzen 9 3950X achieves a higher single-core score of 1314 points but made a lower multi-core score of 11140 points.

So the Ryzen 9 3950X hit 32,082 easily outdoing Intel's Core i9-10980XE which recorded a result of 25,838. The systems in both benchmarks were using DDR4-3600 memory, however only 16 GB capacity in the Gigabyte B450 motherboard.

If we focus on the 3700X and 3800X, we see that the base clock speeds differ by just 300 MHz, while the maximum boosts have an even smaller margin at only 100 MHz. While far from confirmation that this silicon oddity will ever make it into your PC or our best CPUs for gaming guide, the red team looks to be considering an eight-core/16-thread processor somewhere in between two of its most similar processors: the Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 7 3800X.

We should always view early benchmarks with skepticism.

Remember that these chips are from different worlds, too: the Ryzen 9 3950X is a consumer flagship, and the Core i9-10980XE is the flagship of Intel's incoming range of Cascade Lake-X high-end desktop processors. When it comes to multi-core workloads, the difference is around 3.9%. The price for the new AMD Ryzen 9 3950X starts at $749 in the US market. In comparison, the Ryzen Threadripper 2950X, which debuted a little over a year ago at $899, now sells for as low as $670.

As for the specifications and processing power, the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X features a 7nm Zen 2 core architecture and runs at a base frequency of 3.5 GHz. It's pretty impressive that soon you'll be able to purchase a HEDT-grade processor without having to pay a king's ransom for it.
