AMD's Ryzen 9 3950X destroys Intel's i9-10980XE in 3DMark Firestrike
 
Intel's Core i9-10980XE takes a literal pounding in the newly posted 3DMark Firestrike performance listings
 
The news on the upcoming launches of AMD's new 3950X and Threadripper parts are heating up. This time with official results for Intel's new Cascade Lake-X parts having an official showing as well. The findings come from the 3DMark database, which has new results for both the flagship AMD mainstream CPU and the upcoming flagship Intel HEDT part as well.
 

 
Different users ran the two tests, but they appear to be stock results from what the results entries show. Now do keep in mind this is less of a controlled environment than the reviews you read here. Each of these was from separate users with no in-depth information such as MCE status or anything else that may be configured. However, once we look at the scores and some of the specifics of each entry, we can extrapolate some useful information.
 

 
First up is the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X result which we see here was run on a X570 GIGABYTE Aorus Elite. The physics score, which for those unaware is your CPU test for Firestrike tests, shows a score of 32082. The maximum turbo clock shows just over 3,700MHz and the stock clock of 3,500MHz. The AMD rig was outfitted with 16GB of Kingston DDR4 at 3,200MHz and 16 cores with 32 threads active.
 

 
Now we move to the Intel Core i9-10980XE result which we see was run on an ASUS WS X299 SAGE/10G motherboard. This is a heavy-duty workstation level board with a solid VRM and capable of pushing a power-hungry chip like the flagship 18-core we see today. The board was outfitted with 32GB of 2,666MHz Samsung DDR4, so that is one defined difference between the two platforms. The physics test for the i9-10980XE shows a 25,838 score, which is great but substantially less than the AMD mainstream 16-core. The listing shows the full fat 18 cores and 36 threads active for the test with a base speed of 3,000MHz with a max turbo of just over 4,800MHz.
 
This is once again quite exciting as the tests we see leak out before launch will continue to vary, but 3DMark can be an excellent tool for comparison here. As we observe in the aforementioned tests, the Ryzen 9 3950X was not even in its sweet spot for memory/FCLK. a proper 3600-3800 memory kit can net around another potential 8-12% performance increase depending on the tasks at hand. The quad-channel of the i9-10980XE was also not cranked up to an enthusiasts level speed either, so time will tell how these platforms shape up. But, this is further proof that AMD is on the right track, and if the performance carries over, the new Threadripper chips are going to be absolute beasts!

This is troubling since I'm looking to upgrade to a 10980XE but than again, nothing is official here and someone could be pulling our chains.  We'll have to wait and see in the coming weeks.  Can't wait!

    Come On you can't compare "Raw Scores" of Fire Strike --->"of the CPUs" When the [AMD - CPU had a 2080 Ti ]& the [Intel CU had a 2070]
     
    Why Not show the CPU Score ?

    The physics score is the cpu score.

    OK - My Bad
     
    When I Zoomed to 140% of the original link ... then I can see the Physics score or if you open the photo links full size ..
     
    The Bold large Orange score is the only one I could read without zooming ..... or opening the photo link

    I pretty much stopped reading this when I came across this. This is everything that is WRONG with the internet in one article.
     
    EDIT: I did see the physics scores when I first read the review, but still closed out as the comparison is still not equal. Let me know when a REAL comparison shows up.

    This might have been part of the AMD's PR hype department or some deranged AMD fanboy.

    Every single bench in tech news is cherry picked, so not sure why people are arguing this is a singular issue of marketing bias. All benchmark tech news is bias.

    Something is not right here, why they compare results between two different systems.
    They must use same GPU, RAM with same frequency and then to compare results.
    It's very hard to believe that i9-3950X with 16 cores could beat 18 cores Intel. 
    From my perspective this is not accurate result and can't be trusted.

    Update: UL Benchmarks (3DMark) has recommended that the Firestrike Extreme benchmark not be used for CPUs with more than 8 cores since the code is not designed to scale past 8 cores/16 threads. The Time Spy Extreme benchmark should be used instead which can scale up to 64 cores/128 threads. This means that benchmarks of HEDT CPUs with more than 8 cores can vary wildly in the FSE test and considering the 9980XE scores around 33000 points, it wouldn't make much sense for the 10980XE to score 25000 points. We have marked this post as rumor.
