This is shaping up to be an exciting month. Sure, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and we can look forward to Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, as is always the case this time of year. But outside of all that, AMD and Intel are about to duke it out in the enthusiast space with new processors that push core counts way above what the typical user needs. As a preview of what is to come, a leaked benchmark pits the AMD's Ryzen 9 3950X against Intel's Core i9-10980XE. AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and Intel Core i9-10980XE Extreme Edition Specifications It's important to note that these are different classes of CPUs. As odd as it may seem, the Ryzen 9 3950X is technically a mainstream desktop CPU,... Read more...
Technically speaking, AMD's upcoming Ryzen 9 3950X is not a high-end desktop (HEDT) processor—it's a mainstream desktop chip, even though it wields 16 cores and 32 threads of computing muscle. In contrast, Intel's upcoming Core i9-10980XE is classified as an HEDT part, with 18-cores and 36 threads. Despite the different categories each CPU falls into, it's fair to compare these multi-core beasts, and a couple of recent benchmark leaks allows us to get a head start on things. Both processors have made an early appearance in the 3DMark benchmark database, with regards to the Fire Strike test. This gives us a point of comparison. Specifically, it is the Physics score we are interested in,... Read more...
Late last week, Intel announced its strongest answer yet to AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper family of HEDT processors with the Cascade Lake-X family. While Intel’s Core-X processors have always been competitive on the performance side of things in the past, their pricing tiers have always been woefully inflated compared to AMD’s offerings. That changes with the 10th generation Core-X processors, which have seen their prices roughly slashed in half compared to their predecessors. The flagship of the new Cascade Lake-X family is the Core i9-10980XE (say that three times fast), which is an 18-core/36-thread CPU. The processor has a base clock of 3GHz, a maximum Turbo...

We have a small update to an article that we first brought you yesterday. As many of you are already aware, Intel is just days away from launching its new line of 10th generation Cascade Lake-X processor family. The first of those processors that came to light was the Core i9-10900X, which is the "entry-level" entry into Intel’s HEDT family. Today, we're getting a look at what is alleged to be Intel's flagship desktop processor: the Core i9-10980XE. Like the Core i9-10900X that was leaked yesterday, Geekbench figures for the processors were discovered by momomo_us and were obtained from an unreleased Dell Precision 5820 Tower X-Series desktop. The Core i9-10980XE is shown to have... Read more...
