(Posted here because I'm sure at least a few CPU enthusiasts (fanbois, objective observers, and haters alike!) will be at least *mildly* curious

 

For your reading enjoyment, a performance preview on something other than Cinebench, including a small variety of assorted benchmarks, including gaming, including SLI, and ranging from 1080P to 4k....

 

https://hothardware.com/reviews/amd-threadripper-1950x-performance-preview?page=2

 

Highlights: 

Hopefully no one is shocked that the 7900K outperforms this single TR4 sample in 1080Ti/Rise of the Tomb Raider by about 20%, but, the 1959X is only down 4 fps at 4K with a pair of 1080Ti's in SLI....

The 7900X  has minimum framerate advantage of 17.9% higher in 4k SLI high quality, but there was a medium quality preset with single 1080Ti where the 1950X pulled ahead slightly in minimum framerates, oddly enough...

 

Naturally, the 7900K falls victim in Cinebench by 30%, as expected...

 

We'll see how the gaming community with money burning holes in their proverbial pockets or contemplating new builds takes/digests these numbers over the coming days.... :)

Excellent showing from Threadripper. Much better quality CPU, better upgrade paths available and runs much cooler than Intel's comparable ones. So definitely one that CPU enthusiast should get.

Alienware's 1950X offering seems a tad dubious...; it just seems a bad move to semi-market it as some sort of gaming rig; should have gone for the Prosumer/Producer/Creator that also games at 4k!

 

Hype it like it's gaming's next "The One", and then, as expected, take the defeats of varying degrees (as anticipated) in all gaming benchmarks by systems costing $700 less in cpu and $300 less in mainboard....

 

After a brief false alarm regarding some temps (85C in gaming), we then learned about the +27C offset. Those are some good temps, if/assuming the offset was not accounted for.....!

 Have you historically been as concerned in times past over assorted CPU temps in AMD's pre-Ryzen days, just out of curiosity? Or was the FX9590 a 'wonderful future-proof  beast that kept the electric company employed' even back then? :)

 

(Waiting for Vega64 to draw praise for almost matching a GTX1080 in gaming pferformance and at only 100 watts more power draw, because it's 'newer advanced technology'.

 

(The Vega56, on the other hand, might do quite well, exceeding GTX1070 framerates by a nice 20-30%, if the leaks are to be believed...)
