EPYC performance Threadripper Pro 7995WX 96-Core hits 100,000 in Cinebench Benchmark

Published by

AMD unveiled its Ryzen Threadripper 7000 (Storm Peak) series yesterday and the accompanying Threadripper Pro 7000 WX series, which notably includes a 96-core configuration. With the introduction of these Zen 4 processors. An OC shows close to 150K points!

PC Magazine conducted a thorough evaluation of the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX. This 96-core processor was benchmarked against its 64-core predecessor, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX, and Intel's 56-core Xeon W9-3495X from the Sapphire Rapids Xeon W series. It's pertinent to mention that Intel currently doesn't have a counterpart to AMD's high-core count offering. Intel's top-tier Sapphire Rapids Xeon model, the Xeon Platinum 8490H, is equipped with 60 cores and 120 threads. The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX, the flagship model of the 7000 WX series, has 96 cores, 192 threads, and an L3 cache of 384MB. AMD calibrated the clock speeds of this processor, providing a base clock of 2.5 GHz and a boost clock of 5.1 GHz. This top boost clock is a considerable 38% higher than its EPYC counterpart, even though the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX has a 10W lower TDP at 350W.


Here are the benchmark results for the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX:

  • Cinebench R23: 100,291
  • Blender: 22 seconds
  • Adobe Photoshop 22 CC: 1,133
  • 3DMark CPU 1-Thread: 1,027
  • HandBrake 1.4: 3 minutes and 3 seconds
  • Crossmark: 1,452
  • Geekbench 5.4.1 Pro: 52,817

If we add the CB MT result to our own charts, that would look something like this:


We need to note that PC Magazine had absolutely no control over the test system, and did these tests over a remote connection. The Dell Precision 7875 system, equipped with the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX, was remotely accessed at Dell's Customer Solutions Center (CSC) Lab in Round Rock, Texas via Parsec software. Dell estimated a performance overhead between 1% and 3% due to this remote testing method. As these are preliminary results, further evaluations with diverse workloads are anticipated in upcoming reviews.

Update: AMD 7995WX Overclocking Session Performance Benchmarks

Videocardz details an overclocking session held at AMD with Quasarzone, emphasizing the technical feats achieved with the 7995WX. The overclocking team at AMD was able to elevate the 96 cores of the 7995WX to 4.4 GHz, leading to a power draw of 620 watts. It's suggested that Ryzen Master can potentially set a power threshold of up to 1,000 watts. Managing such power consumption, however, necessitates advanced cooling methodologies, with liquid nitrogen or helium being plausible options for optimal temperature control.


Performance metrics from this session are noteworthy. In the R23 benchmark, the overclocked chip registered a score of 148,719 points, marginally surpassing the previous record held by a dual 96-core Epyc 9654 CPU system, which scored 147,668 points. Moreover, in the Cinebench 2024 evaluation, the 7995WX achieved a score of 8,052 points. This represents a roughly 30% enhancement over the existing record set by the Xeon w9-3495X, which had a score of 6,159 points.

Let's again charts that up :):
