Our colleagues at TechRadar reported how Intel’s new W9-3495X Xeon processor bested AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995X CPU in a popular 3D rendering benchmark, Maxon’s Cinebench R23, thanks to some stunning liquid nitrogen cooling system.
That, though, doesn’t reflect the more mundane reality of Pros: using a car analogy, nobody drives drag racing cars to work and certainly no creative professionals would risk a BSOD or system lock up by using extreme overclocking. The extra performance is not unsustainable and certainly not viable long term (not to mention how dangerous it is).
For a more realistic view of how the two rivals perform on creative software, check out the content creation preview article Matt Bach from Puget Systems, a boutique workstation specialist, put together.
Xeon vs Threadripper Pro
He pitted three Xeon “Sapphire Rapids” CPUs vs three Threadripper Pro CPUs across eight popular benchmark software including Cinebench R23. He noted that current generation Xeons are 40% faster than the previous generation ones on single-core performance and faster by about 5% (56-core vs 64-core) than AMDs workstation CPU. Overall though, the 5995WX is faster than the best Xeon (W9-3495X) by about 8.5%.
