AMD has sparked a lot of interest and discussion in the enthusiast community with its official rollout of the Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 family. When the processors were officially unveiled late last month, we were led to believe that the family topped out with the 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X. However, this week in Los Angeles, AMD rolled out the 16-core/32-thread Ryzen 9 3950X which brings a tremendous amount of power down to the mainstream AM4 socket (X370, X470, X570). Now we're getting some additional insight into how the Ryzen 9 3950X is fairing against the competition from Intel, and things are looking pretty good.

Yes folks, there is a such thing as 'professional' overclocking, which may sound like an empty profession on the surface but actually plays an important role. That role is mainly marketing, as companies sponsor and endorse certain overclockers, in hopes of showcasing their products. If you were to take a peak into pro overclocking world right now, you would see a new world record for Port Royal, a ray tracing benchmark that UL Benchmarks recently added to 3DMark. At present, the record currently belongs to none other than Vince Lucido, otherwise known as Kingpin (or "K|NGP|N"), a nickname he derived from his skateboarding days (among other things, a kingpin is a component of the trucks on a skateboard)....

When Intel officially announced its 9th Generation Core processors at an event in NYC a few weeks back, it used the opportunity to also unveil a beastly, unlocked 28-core Xeon processor that’ll be arriving at a later date, and a refreshed line-up of 9th Gen-branded Core-X series processors as well. Unlike the 9th Gen Core i products, however, which leverage an updated Coffee Lake microarchitecture, the “new” Core X series remains based on Skylake-X – just like the 7th Gen Core X series processors we evaluated here. Some folks are likely to shout “re-brand” from the mountaintops in reference to the 9th Gen Core X series, but rest assured Intel has performed... Read more...
Earlier this month Intel announced seven new members of its Core X-Series of "Basin Falls Refresh" HEDT processors. The flagship of the family is the Core i9-9980XE, which supplants the Core i9-7980XE that launched last year. Given that this newest crop of HEDT processors is supposed to hit store shelves next month, it should come as no surprise that the Core i9-9980XE is already turning up in benchmarks online. In this case, the processor was found in the 3DMark database. The Core i9-9980XE managed to deliver a CPU score of 10,729 points in TimeSpy.  According to this particular benchmark, the processor has a base clock of 3GHz and a max turbo clock of 4.5GHz (which...

While is nothing is yet official, Intel is expected to announce several new processors later today, and rumor has it a beastly Core i9-9980XE with 18 physical cores and 36 threads will be among them. The new chip is said to be part of Intel's next generation Core-X high-end desktop (HEDT) series and a refresh of Basin Falls. Rumor has it this launch will coincide with new 9th generation Core processors for the mainstream market. The latter is expected to include up to 8-core processor offerings, including the Core i7-9700K and Core i9-9900K. Typically there is a waiting period for new HEDT parts to come out, but last minute leaks hold true, today will be an exception. Intel is said to be launching... Read more...
