So my buddy let me borrow his 2920x for a week because I was going to purchase it from him super cheap. But in all the testing I did with my current rig, the 2920x was slower than my 1920X.
The biggest disappointment came from the memory controller. By buddy has a 4X8GB kit of b-die running on the XMP profile of 3200 CL14. But with my 4X4GB (Samsung s) it won't run above 2933 with decent timings. But with my 1920X I can run that exact same kit at 3533 CL16.
In Cinebench R15 my 1920X gets a score of around 2750. The 2920X maxed out at 4.2 gets a score of around 2700.
In the games I tested (Doom, GTA V, Destiny 2) it was around 5% slower.
I have since returned the 2920X, and I knew from the start it was more of a side grade but I was expecting to see a small bump in performance. Not a small decline.
I messed with the system for hours trying to figure it out. Just gave up.
One thing I did like was PBO, wish first gen Ryzen had this.
