First Benchmarks & CPU-Z Screenshot of AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 2 Chip Revealed

The first benchmarks and CPU-Z screenshots of AMD’s upcoming Ryzen Threadripper 32-core flagship processor have been revealed by HKEPC. This 12 nm “Pinnacle Ridge” chip will be known as “Threadripper 2990X”. So with that naming scheme you’ll have a 12-core 2920X, 16-core 2950X, 20-core 2960X, 24-core 2970X, and a 28-core 2980X. On the CPU-Z screenshot we can see the 2990X runs at 3.4 GHz base and boosts up to 4.0 GHz and carries with it a TDP of 250W.

The chip was able to achieve an overclock of 4.2 GHz on all 32 cores, but did run into some thermal throttling as the performance at 4.2 GHz was lower in the results below. It looks like the stable overclock was 4.12 GHz on all 32 cores without any thermal throttling. At 4.12 GHz the chip scored 6399 points in Cinebench.
