Not very good results. If confirmed Skylake-x 18c could smoke it badly.
Hmmm, I'd like to see how fast can Intel clock an 18c given the termals. If it's anything like a Xeon it would probably run around 2.2Ghz. Also you'd be comparing a $2-3k CPU to a $1k so not really fair comparison.

All core turbo is surprisingly high for xeon with the same core count and tdp, 3.4ghz. Numbers were released by anandtech http://www.anandtech.com/show/11544/intel-skylake-ep-vs-amd-epyc-7000-cpu-battle-of-the-decade/8 . 7980xe is supposed to have also high turbo 3.0, about 4.4ghz. So it will problably be more competitive than people think. Ignore base frequency, look at base frequency of 7900x and real performance.

The only reason I could consider x299 over x399 would be a compact ITX solution. Ryzen 7 tops out at 8 core for ITX and I wish Threadripper could come out with an ITX or even an mATX board.

TR looses 2 of 8 benchmarks ? and thats supposed to be horrible ? Both $1000 ? And using what memory ? This shows nothing.

He is serious. 18-core skylake-x will go up in flames during any stress testing and engulf TR in smoke, eg. "smoke it".
Are you aware Intel has 18 core and higher sku xeons running in servers currently? Please stop with the trolling if you have nothing better to contribute to this thread, will ya?

Sandra Multimedia benchmarks are mostly about the width of the registers and scales with frequency, and there are a couple of AVX2/AVX512-accelerated tests in the other sub-categories as well.

Nothing surprising. Throw in the huge variability of the results and other factors and it's virtually impossible to draw any conclusion.

Or would you rather believe that 2x26C Xeon Platinums are slower than the 7900X?

It's not looking good either because it's a 16C vs 10C comparison.

^^ That is why I said I was not sure if that guy was just trolling or he actually believed what he said. Not only Sandra numbers are meaningless with regards to real life desktop workloads, 18C SKL-X has no way in hell maintaining 4Ghz all core boost that the 10 core model manages under full load. Unless intel plans to ship some LN2 canisters with the chips that is. If 18C gets a constant 3.2-3.3Ghz all core boost that I'd consider a good result. At those clocks it will might beat TR by a small margin in MTed workloads. It does have a high ST boost clock so it will have somewhat of an edge in poorly threaded workloads too. All for 2x the price of 1950x.

Intel's 18c flagship enthusiast chip will almost certainly be decently faster than threadripper in all but rare scenarios, imo.

Using the info from the above and the 7900x as examples, Intel is using the AVX (2, 512) clocks as base/stock. The i9 7980XE is reportedly going to be boosting to 4.2ghz Turbo, and 4.4Ghz Max Turbo (2 cores).

Since this was not an actual twitter link I will assume it fake.

It's deleted for trolling.

Care to explain why the above links to a photobucket and not the actual AMD Ryzen twitter feed?

At what cost ? their 16 core is almost TWICE as much as threadripper, and their top of the line 18 core is somewhere above 3.3x the cost.

Intel's chips should have almost twice & 3.3x the performance then.

How are these not very good results the 999 dollar part of one company outperforms by quiet a bit the 999 dollar part of the other company in most of the results. One went for a more modular core design than the other. End result is that you have to make a trade off in your decision , which is awesome we can do that. For possibly the absolute best in consumer market you likely will be stuck with Intel but like @Markfw stated , it is up to you if the cost is worth it.

I believe the i9 7960x (16cores) is 0.7x more expensive, as opposed to the "3.3x" you're quoting for the i9 7980XE (18cores), which is actually only ;) 2x the price of the 1950x (16cores) top tier Threadripper cpu. The i9 7960x should also be faster than Threadripper since it looks to have both frequency and ipc advantages over the 1950x Threadripper SKU. Platform cost/cooling should be about equal across board. A 16core Threadripper build is going to be about $700 cheaper but in a world where typical Threadripper and Intel top-tier HEDT builds are around $3,000+, $700 may suddenly feel less significant if the 1950x is behind the 7960x 10-20% in performance in single, few threads, and 32 threads scenarios thanks to higher ipc and clocks.

Edit: @Markfw I think you're confusing the pricing on the xeon-gold 6150 which is the server incarnate of the i9 7980XE which has a msrp of $1,999.
