Start Some Rumour Threads About This Threadripper Leak

Source: The Inquirer Start Some Rumour Threads About This Threadripper Leak

Sharkstooth Tales

The Inquirer spotted a new Thirdripper benchmark leak with some obvious differences from the first leak we saw earlier this month.  The leak now offers a boost clock figure of 4.17GHz which we had not previously seen, however the base clock was detected at 2.2GHz as opposed to the 3.6GHz we originally saw.  It is not clear which is more accurate nor why the change; perhaps AMD is taking advantage of the competition offering low base clocks on their new processor to lower the TDP on some models, perhaps something completely different.

The Geekbench 4 benchmark results are also quite different in multithreaded mode, down to 68,576 from 94,772, but again neither The Inquirer nor we have any details to offer on what is happening

After all, that is the fun part of rumours, isn’t it?

GET READY TO SWALLOW your disappointment if you're an AMD Threadripper fan as leaked benchmarks show the third-gen take on the core-heavy processor is slower than its predecessor.

    Newegg started running a sale on first gen ThreadRipper and the specs caught my eye: 8 cores / 16 threads, 3.8GHz, 180W

    I had to do a double take because I just buint a 3700X system with better specs at 65W. Wow, talk about a huge generation on generation improvement, AMD.

      Nice to see again, isn’t it! Mind you, different threads for different tasks.
