Koh Wanzi at Hardware Zone reviews the “AMD Ryzen Threadripper vs. Intel Core i9-7900X” using BAPCo’s SYSmark 2014 SE benchmark.
According to Hardware Zone, “The 2014 SE version of SYSmark adds a new Responsiveness usage model, where the system’s ability to react quickly to user input affects the overall user experience. This means situations where the system needs to respond smoothly and quickly, such as with application launches, multi-tab web browsing, file copying, and background app installation.”
Also, from the review “The Intel Core i9-7900X took the lead overall here, likely helped along by a combination of strong multi-threaded performance and high Turbo Boost Max 3.0 speeds of 4.5GHz. In comparison, the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X and 1950X have a maximum XFR clock of 4.2GHz.”
