Another day, another AMD-related rumour. This time around, the red company is subject to a recent rumour regarding its upcoming 16-core Ryzen Threadripper CPU, codenamed “WhiteHaven.” It’s said that the benchmark for this particular CPU has been spotted on the Geekbench benchmark platform.
The CPU in question is allegedly named “Ryzen Threadripper 1950X” but we’d suggest our readers to take this one with a pinch of salt, for now. That aside, lets first take a look at the Geekbench scores of this CPU. When it comes to single-core, the Threadripper 1950X CPU obtained a score of 4,074.
In comparison, the recently released Intel Core i9-7900X has a higher “average” single-core score of around 5,740, which, of course, in unsurprising. What is surprising, however, is the comparison between the scores of the Threaripper 1950X CPU against AMD’s top of the line Ryzen 7 1800X processor, which also has a higher average single-core score of about 4,450.
When it come to multi-core scores, the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X managed to obtain a score of 26,786. Intel’s Core i9-7900X and AMD’s Ryzen 7 1800X CPUs, on the other hand, has multi-core scores of 34,126 and 24,266 respectively.
Of course, one has to consider the fact that the Threadripper 1950X CPU my not come with adequate driver support yet. In addition, this processor may also come with overclocking features that may result in its single and multi-core CPU scores to rise. Regardless, we’ll just have to wait for AMD’s Capsaicin event later this month to know for sure.
