Part is probably also Waterfox. I have 3900x at stock and got 113 (firefox) and with ublock turned off I got 126. So it does have a clear impact but not as big as in your case which again leads me to think that waterfox is mostly the culprit for your 77 score.
I got a lower score using Edge. Something like a 65? Hold on I'll retest in in a second.

Tested with 83.0.478.37 Edge, high performance power plans, static overclocks:

8700K @ 4.8Ghz

Both with highly tuned 3600 RAM. Intel seems to have minor advantage beyond clock difference.

Since your using a static overclock and not hitting your boost clocks on the 3950X that maybe the difference.

i'm hitting 140 score with Edge 83 but i'm stock clocks with PBO on so i'm doing close to 4.5Ghz during the run.

I think you may score higher then 144 if you can hit the 4.7 boost clocks of your chip but that would require you to take off your static overclock to verify.

Yeah, no doubt about it, i think with perfect clock scaling 3950x would score ~156 @4.8 if it was capable of hitting those clocks.

It's interesting how much ublock origin slows down this bench.

In Waterfox Classic with extensions, I get ~77

With a fresh download of Firefox Portable (76), I get ~133

(3900x @ 4.4 GHz static)
That must be part of the reason why my phone was 3x faster than my desktop.

So I tried it again with all extensions disabled on Firefox and the ad blocker disabled on the iPhone. Score on the desktop went up from 55.4 to 66 (almost 20%) and score on the phone went up from 156 to 157 (within the margin of error/test variance)

So at least it isn't a 3x difference anymore...

To follow up

So far my scores are:

Firefox Portable (76) freshdownload: ~133
Waterfox Classic + uBlock Origin: ~77
Microsoft Edge (Chrome) + uBlock Origin: ~68

(3900x @ 4.4 GHz)

My Edge score on a 3600 at stock, no PBO or anything, with uBlock Origin alone, is 121...
there must be something else going on with that score!


My total #s so far:

3600 stock, 3200CL16 RAM
Chrome - 69.21 (with uBlock Origin, HTTPSEverywhere, RES, Amazon Smile, Privacy Badger)
Firefox - 108 (with uBlock Origin alone)
Edge - 121 (with uBlock Origin alone)

Re-run in private / incognito with all extensions disabled
Chrome - 121.6
Firefox - 119.3
Edge - 132.0

iPhone 11 Pro
Chrome - 141
Firefox - 156
Safari - 157

Dell OptiPlex 3060 with Core i5-8500T (6c/6t at stock)
Chrome, all extensions disabled - 85.1

Not sure what this test are supposed to measure as it don't seem to stress my cpu (?)

Got 82 points in MS edge
113 points in google chrome

Windows 10 on 3950x with PBO enabled
View attachment 22015

*edit*

Lots of Extensions in chrome, also iam using a gtx 980
82 point on edge is very low?

Are still using the non chromium version of Edge?

I wonder if Linux is the issue, it does not really tend to use hardware acceleration for anything at all. Not sure if this test even relies on that though. It's all GUI stuff so I think that just uses GDI resources.
While I think that this problem with hardware acceleration on Linux still exists, I'm using Linux right now.
He did something to deflate the score on purpose.

Weird I'm still on Edge 44? I figured it would automatically update as a part of OS updates in the Insider program.

Real nice score and scaling for 3950X, going from 132 @4.05ghz to 150 with 100% scaling means clock increase from 4050 to 4600mhz. Hopefully those XT CPUs AMD is about to release will have even higher ST clock ceilings.
