[Forbes] AMD In Shock Intel-Smashing Performance Claim: Is Cinebench Score Really True?

https://www.forbes.com/sites/antonyl...ally-true/amp/


"We’re just a week away from hopefully knowing more about AMD's plans for its Zen 2-based 3rd Generation Ryzen processors and more rumors are surfacing of AMD’s new CPU’s performance. This time, the
channel on YouTube claims to have received a screenshot of a Cinebench score of the supposed 3rd Generation Ryzen flagship – a yet unknown 16-core CPU running at 4.2GHz and obtaining a result of 4,278 points.
That is an absolutely huge score and not just for a mainstream desktop CPU. As you can see below, that score matches or betters every other desktop CPU except for AMD’s Threadripper WX-series, which have 24 and 32 cores respectively. Even the mighty Core i9-9980XE, with 18 cores is no quicker, which clearly has huge ramifications in terms of multi-threaded performance given that AMD’s 16-core 3rd Generation Ryzen CPU, if it does exist, has been rumored to result in plenty of change from $1,000 (in fact some claimed leaks via retailers put it at less than $600)."




If true this is very good news for AMD.

They won't sell it less then $699, The question is where TR4 is going.
Also for $699 for smaller AM4 CPU + X570 chipset income- they maybe gonna make more money then 1950X/2950X alone.

Didn't AMD already state that they didn't want to be stuck in the lower-end segments anymore? I mean, call me crazy, but if AMD produces something faster than Intel, they shouldn't have to resort to selling it for cheaper to maintain market share.

If this is true, I wouldn't mind seeing it sold for over $750. If its genuinely that much faster, then why should they hinder their own potential profit making?

+1, if they win over Intel both in MT and ST then there is no reason to sell them at cheap like you can see now Ryzen [email protected] $199.

The weekend will fly by and then we will know. I think the keynote is late sunday for americans and early monday morning for Europe if I am not mistaken.

I am in desperate need to upgrade and I hope that Zen2 comes in swinging. I don't even need a 12c or 16c CPU, I would prefer a high clocked 8c/16t CPU !

The problem is mindshare. I've known people to choose Intel over AMD simply by brand recognition alone. I don't think AMD can sell anything for more than Intel. IMO, at best, the top AMD chip could perform better than Intel's at the same price.
