ITS EPIC! AMD Threadripper 3970X & 3960X Review With Full Benchmarks

ITS EPIC! AMD Threadripper 3970X & 3960X Review With Full Benchmarks


well it’s finally here we can finally
talk about Ryzen 3rd gen threadripper performance and honestly guys of
all the launches this year this is by far the most exciting now the
other processors from AMD are pretty amazing
the Ryzen 3950X which was launched less than 2 weeks ago is an
amazing processor I mean I’m thinking of putting that into my eye TX workstation
PC so definitely stay tuned for that in fact if you are interested in our full
review of that CPU you can check it out right over here but these two CPUs the
threadRipper 3960x and threaderipper 3970x are pretty important processors
as well because it is an amazing solution for creators like myself and
Dimitri now that he is kind of slowly getting over the fact that his 2950X
water-cooled build is out of date and pretty slow because threadripper 3 is
fast like really fast now we’ve already seen the impressive performance
improvement between second and 3rd generation Ryzen processors and now
those are being rolled into high core count threadripper for CPUs not only that
but with the Zen 2 architecture and a bunch of other changes aimed I set out
to fix some performance issues we had with their previous 24 and 32 core WX
series and imagine when Indy rolls this out things could get absolutely bonkers
guys but that’s another video for another day and after that little tease
let’s move on wanna step up your air flow game look no
further than the master fan SF 120 M from Coolermaster featuring a damping
frame designed to ensure stability a connected fan lane design for optimal
cooling performance and an anti vibration motor that ensures better
acoustics it’s very simple to install and it comes with three fan speed
controls check it out down below now I’m gonna kick things off by making things a
little bit easier for you guys so make sure to check the comments section down
below where we’ll pin the timestamps because this is going to be a long video
because of some additional testing that we have to do for these processors I’m
sure you’re familiar with these specs of these processors but if you’re not
here they are with 32 cores and 64 threads the 3970X will be the flagship
of AMD’s desktop lineup until the 64 core 3990X launches next year it’ll go
for $2000 and it’ll replace the 2990WX which had the same number of course the
396 X has 24 cores and will be available for $1,400 which is still a
good 400 dollars more than the intel’s top-end cascade Lake X 10 9 8 exc but
that CPU isn’t even in the same class aim DS current risin lineup is pretty
full but you can see it actually makes a lot of sense the threadripper 3970X and 3960X are focused on professionals who tackled massively parallel workloads and
need to save as much as time as possible meanwhile the second-generation threadripper processors and the X399 motherboards will stick around but at
lower price points that means the X399 platform will stick around for early
adopters who now want to upgrade and still need threadripper for its memory
bandwidth and massive number of processing threads and PCI lanes under
that comes all of the regular Rison processors from the rise 9 all the way
down to recently launched Athlon 3000 G but what about Intel well handy is
hitting them where it hurts the most these threaderipper cpu’s are being
launched like nuclear missile at high-priced cpus like these xeon w 3275
that thing will run you over 3 grand so while the new threader / processors
might look expensive they’re actually lower priced than the competition I also
mentioned that AMD loaded a bunch of improvements into this version of thread
upper and those are what I’m excited about you see the 2970 WX and the 2990
WX faced some serious issues with Windows due to their unique chip led
design and memory layout also AMD’s c PPC which optimized frequencies for
different load patterns was broken until Microsoft released updates so what is
AMD doing now well first of all they worked with Microsoft to build what’s
called CBBC – so the OS is more aware of Zen to stop ology and it can react
accordingly that should mean higher clock speeds sustained over a longer
period of time and much better performance in many workloads
AMD has also modified their architectures so all the individual CPU
diets can equal access to the DRAM and PCI bandwidth they’re hoping this will
lead to less problems in programs that had issues recognizing how previous gen
architecture handled memory requests speaking of memory the controllers have
been completely revised so third gen threader / CPUs will support higher
maximum memory speeds and increased capacities for example AMD says their
sweet spot is 36 hundred megahertz with 64 gigabytes and 32 hundred megahertz on
a hundred twenty eight gigabyte kit that’s a big improvement over the
previous gen which sometimes struggled to hit three thousand megahertz with 64
gigabytes installed another thing that should be brought up is an AMD
technically supports ECC memory but it is ultimately up to motherboard
manufacturers to implement it now this could be another messy situation again
since a few times X299 and boards did support ECC memory but it had to be
pulled back later on with BIOS updates asked for those motherboards well things
are gonna be interesting these new threaderipper CPU’s require a new TRX4
socket and TRX40 motherboards and those won’t be cheap but also take note that
your old tr4 coolers will be compatible with the mount provided they support 250
watt CPUs this MSI TRX40 Creator will be listed for about seven hundred US
dollars and that isn’t even their highest end model another example is the
Asus zenith 2 extreme which were told will hit store shelves for 850 dollars
$850 motherboard my friends you can build a PC for that price I said it I
just said that now this extreme pricing does come
attached to some amazing capabilities and to explain those I’m gonna take a
quick segment from our previous video to help explain this portion there’s 40 PCI
4.0 lanes dedicated to adding cards and eight to the chipset link add to that 2
sets of configurable ports that can each be set to deliver either form or PCI
lanes for Gen 4 and Mimi lanes or for SATA outputs then there’s also a hub for
4 USB 3.2 Gen 2 connections the TRX40 chipset comes into this with another 8
gen 2 ports USB 3.0 connections SATA 6 gigabits per second and another a
general pci 4.0 lanes that can be used for other devices finally there are
two more flexible hubs that can either accommodate PCI capacity or SATA 6 so
how does that all translate into an actual motherboard well looking over the
msi TRX40 creator and it is just nuts for people who need a lot of fast
storage and a lot of capability that comes from all of those pci lanes
basically there are three PCI Gen 4 and a two slots on the motherboard and
another four on an add-in card that looks like this this isn’t even funny I
mean this is an actual this looks like a graphics card except it doesn’t have a
OH I mean it’s running off of a 6-pin
connector it’s got an actual fan to cool all those drives this is welcome to 2019
moving on to the zenith extreme and asus has gone about things a bit differently
first of all they’re using a dual 8 pin and a single 6 pin layout for the cpu
input power the i/o area is also packed with additional USB 3.2 gen 2 ports and
also a USB 3 point 2 2 by 2 port that provides up to 20 gigabits per second of
bandwidth for external storage devices so our test systems have remained pretty
much identical to the 30 and 50 X review other than the addition of the TRX40
Zeenat to extreme as it is the motherboard we’re using for third gen
threadRipper as usual all motherboard specific enhancements were disabled so
things like multi-core enhancement for Intel are turned off starting with
Cinebench and straight off these are by far the fastest to processors we’ve ever
seen the most incredible thing about these results is that they’re almost 50%
faster than the 2990WX and the 2970WX AMD is absolutely dominating our
cinnabench charts guys and it doesn’t stop here blender just continues with third
gen thread upper whipping up pretty much every other CPU we have on hand I mean
the 3960X is hands-down beating the 2990WX
even though it has a lot less processing threads meta shape is also pretty
interesting since it uses both multi-core and also lightly threaded
workloads depending upon the task that’s why the threadripper CPUs don’t perform
quite as well when compared to purely multi-threaded situations but to be
honest there versus previous gen CPUs is massive in
reality capture you can clearly see where the WX series CPU’s is just straight-up
failed to play nice with the windows ecosystem these new processors are very
different but at least for this program there are far better options out there
for less money so after a few disappointing results we’re back to
absolute domination seeing this test finished in under ten minutes is just
well pretty nuts moving on to handbrake here we are with
a Transco job and yep say hello to threadripper leading again
now this lead isn’t all that massive simply because handbrake isn’t fully
able to load all course now we’ve come to the part that’s pretty important for
us premiere and resolve results starting with Adobe Premiere Pro the 3970X
and the 3960X provides huge performance uplifts versus zwx series
and they’re the fastest things in our charts guys but their numbers are still
comparable to what the I9 9900K can achieve with the IGP enabled to
accelerate rendering performance but I do want to make something very clear the
input is based on what we’re shooting with so mp4 files if you’re using a
different format like red raw like our 3d the numbers might be a little
different now this is a new test for us where we take 174 a raw video project
files and transcode them from mp4 to pro res with Adobe Media encoder seeing how
fast this is actually makes me want to use the third and semi X to transcode
all our footage from here on out it’s really that fast another thing that was
odd in this test was neither WX processor was able to complete the task
it happened multiple times and no matter what we did it would just freeze the
system moving on to our DaVinci Resolve test we need it to be very honest here
it’s possible that our overclocked r-tx 20 and 80 I became a bottleneck for the
fastest CPUs on this chart we noticed the GPU was pegged at a hundred percent
utilization while some course on the 3950X the i9 10980XE and the new
threaded per CPU remained idle we’re gonna have to look into this a bit
closer but it goes to show how bloody fast these things are the last
real-world test is a render in Autodesk Maya and this is what absolute
domination looks like folks there’s no other way to describe it and
now it’s time to take a look at gaming performance now before you start raging
in the comments I’m completely aware that these processors are not meant for
that task but it’ll be interesting to see what kind of performance
improvements AMD has implemented with these new processors so starting things
off and we immediately have a problem far cry 5 has some scheduling issues
with the new threadripper CPUs but let me tell you this was the only issue we
encountered through testing luckily enabling game mode and the BIOS
improved things by quite a lot moving on and it looks like ambi really did
improve gaming performance along with everything else while neither of these
thread repair processors lead the charts their performance is more than decent
and a huge improvement over the previous generation and actually just thought of
a marketing point for AMD threadripper finish your work faster more time for
gaming now at this point do we really care about power consumption I mean if
you really do here you go and yes we ran these tests multiple
times and the results were always the same our 3970x and 3960X actually
consumes only a bit more power than the WX series processors
despite kicking their butts across every benchmark this also shows how far AMD is
ahead of Intel they’re offering 50% better performance in some apps with
only about 20% higher power consumption the new Hydra X series from Corsair is a
full water cooling ecosystem with transparent blocks for RGB goodness and
built-in flow indicators with soft and heart to being available and the full
array of fittings so you can design the perfect loop for you hide your X by
Corsair everything’s linked below alright so I think I’m gonna wrap this
up quickly because the benchmarks have conveyed the whole story what AMD has
been able to accomplish over these last three years is just staggering and
third-generation Rison therapure feels like a combination of every improvement
rolled into one incredible family of processors but there is one negative and
that is platform cost sure in the grand scheme of things the 3960X and
the 3970X are affordable compared to Intel’s alternatives but AMD
is pushing the CPUs way past their second gen prices the motherboards are
also seeing pretty big price hikes but in the
right hands and in the right situations the investments will absolutely
positively worth every penny time is money for professionals so if
you spend a few thousand bucks and if you end up saving a few hours of running
times over the course of a week that could ultimately become an advantage for
someone like you know a content creator or even doesn’t every content creator it
could be a professional who works with Autodesk or you know other rendering
programs but at this time I’m gonna ask for another opinion from someone who has
been in industry for a long time and that is none other than Michael Michael
come on in I actually I actually had an emotional response when when
benchmarking this thing because I’ve been in this for a good 14 years now and
it’s the largest generational increase I’ve ever seen it’s not your typical 10%
5% and I also needed to think to myself is that just because the WX series
didn’t perform up to my expectations but then you look back and you look at this
versus Intel and you look at it versus some of the other Ryzen processors and
it’s unbelievable it used to be that AMD had to rely on core counts in order to
beat int’l but now they have frequencies Kork ounce and IPC and they’re just
demolishing everything in their path so for me this is the processor that is the
icing on the cake for AMD in their last three years is the culmination of all
their hard work and man it’s freaking amazing I know right if they say if they
say then then three is coming out next year its Intel’s gonna be in a little
bit of hurt until 7 nanometre I’m gonna conclude this like like Eber usually
does I’m Mike with Hardwick Canucks I’m not going to be as deep and monotone as
him but there’s other videos here that you can check out you can subscribe over
here boot sequence our other channels some are down here and I’m out of here I
hope you saw my hands we will the cameraman says bye

    AMD's progress in the CPU game has been simply amazing for the last couple of years and they don't seem to be stopping. Now I just hope, on the GPU side of things, the progress will catch some better momentum and begin threatening Nvidia as well at a higher level, so to speak. I hope that won't take too long.

    This is like the only time where I felt that the 3970X is extremely well priced. Yes it is expensive but it's almost a linear upgrade from ryzen. You pay ~2X, you get ~2X performance. Not bad.

    Considering Intel is still on 14nm and performing good with Games for half the price, cmon don't be stupid
    9900k also missing in benchmark comparisons since this guy is going with 3950x

    Yes, while I agree, that Threadripper is MUCH better. Look at the other side. Top of line Intel HEDT is much more affordable.
    TR3 is very expensive now with picky RAM and crazy expensive motherboards…
    It seems like sides were switched.

    Better and Cheaper, are words that not on Intel dictionary

    AMD came from less than 2 USD a share on 2015, to almost 40 USD a share right now,,
    AMD Market Cap skyrocket to almost 45B in less than 3 years

    (should've bought when it was 2USD, right?)

    Intel decades dominant crumble in less than 4 years

    Maybe Intel let AMD win this time around ??
    Intel have "Uno Reverse Card" the 3D chip Stacking, the Foveros

    If my assumptions are correct, it will change the microprocessor forever
    Stacking CPU+RAM+GPU into one chip is pretty big leap

    But we all see that AMD have first step on 3D Stacking, the APU

    While Intel, still no information, not even rumors about it

    I'm worry Intel can't compete even with the Reverse Card,
    Then Intel will be the underdog in 2020s,
    And that's the good case scenario

    We know these CPU's are not meant for gaming, but if you did game you would game at 1440p or most likely 4k due to the 2080ti GPU and these super-powerful CPU's, so why do all you reviewers still test at 1080p? I know you will say to show the CPU bottlenecks, but that is sort of irrelevant due to the fact that you would be able to maintain 60fps at 4k in almost all games. And let's be honest hardcore gamers will not select any of these CPU's as they can get the 1080p high FPS's with much cheaper CPU's, so if you still have to show 1080p benchmarks, please also show 1440p and 4k results as well, as for people who can afford these CPU's for workstation applications but do want to play games (at 4k) as well, it would be real-world helpful ! thanks 🙂

I absolutely don't care how long my machine takes to render the final h.264 since this is usually happening quite rarely and I usually go grab a coffee as a reward.

    I noticed you used a GH5 in one of your tests. I have been in contact with Blackmagic. They are helping with a issue in Davinci Resolve, the software seems to be having serious issues with Nvidia cards. The BMP4K RAW files lock up when using multicam. Disabling the GPU on a 1080ti let the files play but they still freeze in multicam. This also happens with GH5's in multicam.

    As hyped as i could be for AMD, comparing the Threadrippers to a Xeon just for the sake of "Look, it´s even more expensive" isn´t fair. The counterpart for the Xeon is AMD´s Epyc lineup. And those aren´t a bargain either.

    But then again: I´m fricking hyped! 😀

    The prices are low when you compare them to the Xeon processors they are competing against – as in half the price.

    These are faster in almost every metric than Intel's fastest HEDT, sometimes by over 100 PERCENT

    $850…you could build a PC for that price! Yeah, and? I can buy multiple Nintendo Switches for that price but I fail to see the comparison.

    AMD TR 3990X will annihilate Intel's existing CPU line up! A monster that will devour the entire line up of Intel CPUs in one shot!… A desktop CPU with 64 Cores!!!, can you imagine what can do with it? It's like a server-grade CPU inside your desktop, which can game as well! It blows me away.

    AMD = Advanced Micro Domination

    Yeah, TR3000 is definitely not for everyone. But if one needs it, one needs it bad.

    I saw the same thing in Davinci Resolve with my 3950X. When rendering a video there were several cores that were unloaded during the render and it was probably due to my GTX1080 being pegged at 100% load.

    A lot of the new CPU/GPU reviews still compare the gaming performance with 1080p as the go-to; I'd love to see the reviews when the comparisons are made in 4K as standard. Perhaps another 2-3 years?

    Happy with 1950 and don't see reason to upgrade. 3970 like twice more expensive to original price and now its like 4x expensive than 1950.
    Many tasks you can run on GPU, in general CPUs is not slow (and about twice faster, but in multhithreading, while many pro task is still not optimized fot thet)
    As well enough PCI-e lanes on 1950 to run 4 GPU and NVMe. Only one advantages is 256 GB of RAM support. Its nice to see progress and AMD success, but not convinced. (might be for 64 cores)
    Little VRM fans buzzers return is suck.

    From practical and professional point of view 3950x seems to be more attractive. Many prosumer software still not use multhithreading in full for some operations, so high single core performance is more important. But AMD doing very well, happy about it.

    AMD is a really shocking story on how lots of companies having been trickling out technology, little by little over the years and charging a premium for it. Once in a while a company just comes along and says fuck it.

    Please stop up-scaling Rainbow 6 siege to 4k, (TXAA-4x) If you put my 2600x at 4ghz on that chart it would look exactly the same as the 3970x and 10980xe.

    I like seeing rainbow 6 around but this test is literally a waste of 5 seconds.

    You didn't mention the amazing tdp of those CPUs , one huge win , they stay 10°c+ cooler than their ryzen 9 16-cores/CPUs. Plus they are not even the top of the line in the lineup, we are still missing the 48 and 64 cores threadrippers.
