AMD Ryzen 16 Core 5.2GHz CPU Benchmark Leaked, Crushes Intel’s i9 9980XE
26 Jun, 2019
Just a little under three weeks ago a 16 core monster of a chip based on AMD’s next generation Zen 2 microarchitecture was leaked. Just a couple of days later the CPU was confirmed and announced as the Ryzen 9 3950X, the world’s first ever “gaming” 16 core processor and the fastest ever of its kind to date.
The Ryzen 9 3950X runs at a base clock speed of 3.5GHz and a boost of 4.7GHz and if you’re reading this you probably already know that. But, it’s important because the leaked Ryzen 3000 series 16 core processor that is the subject of this article does not run at those frequencies, and as such may be a different chip entirely.
