alright what’s up guys
Eber here with Hardware Canucks ah come on what’s
are you kidding me guys this is only good for taking notes man geez
you know what forget about the sponsored stuff you know I have something more
exciting which is this right here the 3950X let’s do it we’ve all been
waiting for this day and so have I in fact after a lot of teases from AMD were
finally allowed to talk about the Ryzen 9 3950X performance now I’ll be
honest with you guys I’m super excited about this processor because it offers a
ton of cores and threads but most importantly it feels like it hits the
final nail in the coffin for intel’s high-end crazy pricing that’s because
the 3950x goes for around $750 while offering 32 threads on the X570
platform now that platform is a lot more affordable compared to X299 and it
offers a lot of features compared to z390 so why don’t we get into the
performance results spoiler alert guys this CPU is really
and I mean really fast but is it $750 u.s. or almost $1000 Canadian North in
let’s find out first a quick message from our sponsor we’ve all been there
looking at our RAM thinking what a weakling well no longer introducing
tough frame by thermal take the toughest RAM around with a discrete built in logo
and premium heat spreaders design the toughest addressable LED system with
super brightness compatibility with all the usual motherboard software even
raise a chroma and voice control through Amazon Alexa available in the toughest
capacities of 16 gigabytes per kit with speeds between 3040 400 megahertz
considered the tough frame RGB link below alright so I’m gonna get into
benchmarks but before that I do want to talk about the processor and what it’s
about just in case if you miss our coverage of it this CPU has 16 cores and
32 threads which equals the threadripper 2950X but it also operates
at much higher clock speeds – other than the smaller cache size the 3950X uses
the AM4 socket and X570 platform the only thing it really lacks is the
thread reverse quad-channel memory support compared to the 3900X
it has eight more threads and higher max boosts clock but the base frequency is
also quite a bit lower to TDP is also the same the issue for some people might
be pricing because the 3950X goes for 50% more than the 3900X so don’t
expect the same amount of performance uplift compared to that processor I
think you’re really paying a premium for having the fastest aim for CPU on the
planet now I do want to be perfectly clear about this CPU AMD isn’t
targeting this for gamers whatsoever in fact it’s really meant for content
creators or professionals who would love to accelerate their workflow without
investing huge sums of money into platforms like X299 or X399 million so
with that out of the way I think it’s time to get into the performance results
now I do want to mention that we have replaced our testing procedure in fact
we’ve eliminated a lot of these synthetic benchmarks and we’ve replaced
them with more real-world use case scenarios so let’s get into it generally
all of our test systems are the same they’re using 32 gigabytes of memory
clocked at 3600 Hertz GTX 20 atti at Corsair MP 510 2 terabyte SSD and a
corsair ax 860 IPS you all motherboard specific enhancements were disabled 2
for cooling a knock Toa n hu 12 as heatsink is always used except for X399
and X299 those are cooled with the Noctua n hu 14s let’s start off with
cinnamon and right away well the 3950X blazes ahead of
pretty much everything guys even the 9980XE and the previous generation threadRipper set image are 20 conveys the same story too with the new Ryzen 9
leading everything single core benchmarks show that AMD has made huge
improvements with their lightly threaded performance that’s really good news
since most professional apps and games don’t fully stress all CPU cores all the
time so that’s it for our synthetic tests but now we’re gonna move on to
some real-world benchmarks and I think this is where it gets even more
interesting starting off with blender and it really does show how good AMD’s
news into architecture stacks up against these super old
skylake X architecture used on the 9 & 8 exe remember this is a 32 thread AMD
processor literally tied with an Intel CPU with
six threads I’m just gonna let that sink in for a second
Mehta shape is a new program for our benchmarks it’s used for taking
thousands of digital images and combining them to create a 3d data
basically it prefers in combination of core counts and higher sustained clock
speeds and that’s why we see the 9900KS KS so competitive but once again
the 3950X wins even in reality capture which is a program that’s a lot like
meta shape since it also takes a ton of image data to compile multi-dimensional
images it’s super CPU intensive and the 3950X is impossible to beat again
it even puts the threadripper 2950X to shame and that is impressive guys now
this test is actually one of our most CPU intensive since in it we’re building
a version of Firefox for Windows which processes through more than 10 gigabytes
of data here the 2950X wins out by a bit since its memory bandwidth and cache
give it an edge the 9980XE is pretty competitive too but not for a CPU that
costs way more than thousand dollars handbrake is a pretty solid test for
multi-core video transcoding and here the thread repair dominates again but
look at that look at the 3950X it beats the 9980XEsee again Intel should
be pretty worried by now guys Premiere Pro is an interesting program since it
uses the IGP in Intel’s coffee like CPUs to accelerate rendering so the 9900K
and KS end up on the top but the 3950X ends up being the fastest non
accelerated CPUs here in DaVinci Resolve be 9900K gets another narrow win but
that’s because nearly all of our CPUs are slightly bottleneck by the graphics
card just take that into account before you assume a super-expensive threadRipper bill will get you better results right Dmitri all right so now on to
gaming performance now I’m gonna go through these really quickly but there’s
one thing to keep note of and that is we’ve run all of our tests at 1080p but
the gap between the CPUs could narrow if you stepping it up to 1440p or 4k that’s
because the GPU would be more of a bottle ink compared to the CPU in all of
these games the results are pretty close together but you can actually see that
the 3950X is pretty competitive but the 3900X is actually a better less
expensive option if you’re building a gaming focused system
main reason for that is the 3900X was able to maintain higher overall clock
speeds in most titles and while it wasn’t by all that much the difference
did end up showing up in the charts another thing that’s interesting is AMD
has almost closed the gap with Intel when it comes to gaming performance even
when compared to the 9900 k-series they’re not quite there yet but
seriously you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference with your naked eyes now
something I really wanted to mention is a bit of an odd claim from AMD that the
3950X was optimized for liquid cooling and I’m gonna say this right now
that’s just marketing PS because you don’t really need an all-in-one liquid
cooler to cool this processor let me explain as you can see are not to a Utah
less with a single 120 millimeter fan was able to easily keep up with the NZXT
kraken X 62 when cooling the 1350 X while it was under full load so unless
you’re looking for a more RGB goodness I’d recommend you just stick with a very
good air cooler switching over to power consumption you can actually see the 3950X’s overall efficiency is a big reason why it’s temperatures are so good
all things considered when the CPU is fully loaded it consumes about the same
amount of power as the 3900X and that’s pretty impressive guys alright so I
think it’s time to wrap up this video I am genuinely blown away by what AMD was
able to deliver with the Ryzen 9950 I mean they literally bought threadripper like performance to the m4 platform for a fraction of the cost compared to
their higher and CPUs I mean sure $750 is not cheap but it
offers an amazing value for content creators or other folks who love taking
advantage of all of those threads and chewing through their particular
workflow but I also want to take a few seconds to talk about Intel because they
are in a lot of trouble I think aimed he might have purposely
sandbagged their early results by comparing the 3950X to the 9920x
because this thing is actually competing against the 9980XE a processor that
was going for a ridiculous $2,000 just a few months ago this new AMD processor has
basically devalued Intel’s entire high-end desktop lineup and I’m talking
about the upcoming cascade Lake X here not be current CPUs the thousand-dollar
core I nine ten nine eight see is only supposed to be a few percent
faster than the 9980XE but that processor was spanked by this guy and
that’s a very big problem so I guess the last thing that needs to be accomplished
by AMD is to make sure that this processor is available to buy in stores
for $750 because from what we’ve been hearing there’s going to be very limited
quantities of the CPU and that could potentially lead to price gouging and
yeah that could be pretty bad but otherwise this is all I’ve got to say to
AMD Bravo just well done you’ve earned I think I think this is amazing this is
just yeah

    5:53 while having the Intel QuickSync enabled when rendering video in software like Premiere that supports it makes it quite a bit faster. it also does degrade quality a bit.. really something you should take into account.. if you want the same quality you gotta turn that shit off

    the 3950 is not a coffeelake competitor its a skylake competitor and even competes with threadripper this puts the power of both in the hands of the small enterprise guys or a business looking to lower upfront costs buy buying a cheaper platform without giving up power and performance.
    AMD may just want to get there shit together with production because this chip may become big time in the small business world

    Yes Adobe Premiere Pro has QuickSync, but keep in mind there is a bit of degredation in quality when using that. With the 3950X, however, there's no loss in quality. So even if it may technically be faster, is it worth it? That's up to the professional to decide if they want their product to look as professional as they can, within a reasonable timeframe – and I'd say 3950X is pretty reasonable.

    AM4 to X399 or TRX4 is more than just quad ram channels. AM4 has 16 cpu lanes to the PCIe sockets plus 4 from the PCH. TR has 48 cpu lanes 16X 8X 16X 8X. Utube ignored all the features of the X399 platform and pushed TR was for 16 cores. Second gen TR was for 32 cores….etc. Run one X16 GPU and your AM4 board is saturated. Utube killed 8 and 12 core TR sales and AMD dropped both of them. And for now there isn't even a 16 core TR ZEN2. Now we need $2200 to get the TR I/O. Now the desktop winner for I/O is the 299X/Intel.

    Have you ever thought about adding deep learning to your test suites? Deep learning is usually not done on CPU, but it would be interesting to see the results nevertheless.

    With 1st gen Ryzen AMD took out the knife
    With 2nd gen, they sunk it in Intel's chest
    Now with 3rd gen they just keep twisting

    For some reason I'm reaching for my credit card to buy an overpriced speced-out Dell with a core i9 and 2080TI, and want to vacuum it with an overpriced Dyson

    for gaming that cpu are not worth it because in few months will come ryzen 4xxx /zen3) with higher IPC and maybe clocks and basically 200$ r5 4600 will be fast or faster then 3950x in gaming or like 9900k

    The 3950x does need a 280mm aio. The reason is the chip is binned. It will overclock to 4.4ghz on all cores.
    Meaning it will be the 3900x in games overclocked like its surpose to.
    That's the reason why.
    Extreme cooling will get you 4.5ghz all core, then it's faster than 9900k in all games.
    That's the reason you dont have a cooler with it and require 280mm aio.

    I am glad your benchmarks were at 1080p, it will show how much head room the CPU will have in the coming years with new GPUs at higher resolution, RTX 4080 for example.

    It's also the best quality silicon that draws the same or less power than the 3900X. More than just additional cores.

    2019 the year that AMD undercut and messed with nVidia profits, and straight under cutting intel's overpriced chip.
