New benchmark outcomes for Intel’s upcoming 56-core Sapphire Rapids Xeon Platinum 8470 have surfaced on-line, displaying spectacular efficiency from Intel’s new Sapphire Rapids structure. As shared by Twitter leaker @yuuki_ans, the brand new Xeon was capable of outperform AMD’s 64 Core Threadripper 3990X in a large number of benchmarks together with Cinebench R15, R20, R23, CPU-Z, and V-Ray.
As ordinary, be aware that these outcomes are usually not official, so take them with a grain of salt. Sapphire Rapids remains to be in improvement, so efficiency is topic to vary earlier than launch.
Sapphire Rapids is Intel’s upcoming server microarchitecture that would be the successor to Intel’s present lineup of Ice Lake Xeon processors. It is going to be Intel’s first server structure to make use of the corporate’s new 10nm SuperFin course of – or Intel 7 because it calls it now, which ought to give Sapphire Rapids a big enhance in efficiency.
For all intents and functions, Sapphire Rapids is the server model of Alder Lake, powered by the identical efficiency cores generally known as Golden Cove. Nevertheless, in contrast to Alder Lake, Sapphire Rapids is not going to depend on Gracemount effectivity cores.
The Sapphire Rapids SKU used within the benchmarks is the Xeon Platinum 8470, with 56 Cores and 104 threads. We will verify if that is the flagship SKU, however there’s an opportunity it could possibly be or it could possibly be the second in line. Based on CPU-Z, the CPU seems to have a peak turbo clock of three.8 GHz.
|Ryzen Threadripper 3990X||Intel Xeon Platinum 8470||Efficiency Distinction:|
|Cinebench R15||10,055 – 10,088||8,949||12%|
In Cinebench R20, we noticed the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X obtain a really respectable 25,082 factors in our testing. However Intel’s Sapphire Rapids chip managed to outperform the 3990X by 17%, with a rating of 29,344 factors — regardless of the Xeon having an inferior core depend.
Sadly, we did not do any testing of the 3990X in Cinebench R15, R23 or CPU-Z, and our V-Ray scores use a special model of the app. So for these benchmarks, we’ll need to disclose to third occasion critiques and testing.
For Cinebench R23, we acquired our 3990X outcomes from CPU-Monkey. Based on them, the Threadripper 3990X scored 74,422 factors. However the Xeon 8470 comes swinging again with a rating of 79,150 factors — a 6.3% lead over the 3990X.
Nevertheless, in Cinebench R15 it seems the 3990X lastly will get its first win (and solely win) over the Xeon 8470. Based on Guru3D and Overclock3D, each retailers report a Cinebench R15 rating of 10,055 – 10,088 factors, which outperforms the 8470’s rating of 8949 factors by round 12%.
However the tide adjustments shortly once we take a look at the CPU-Z benchmark outcomes. With CPU-Z, the 56 core Xeon achieves its most outstanding win over the 3990X with a whopping 70.7% efficiency enchancment over the 64 Core AMD chip. The CPU-Z rating got here out to a stable 55,000 factors for the Xeon 8470, whereas the 3990X solely managed a rating of 32,215.
The ultimate benchmark shared was a V-Ray rating, and in keeping with outcomes from Hexus, the Xeon chip wins once more. Based on Hexus, its 3990X check leads to V-ray got here out with a rating of 74,449 factors. When in comparison with the Sapphire Rapids chip, it comes out on prime with 76,710 factors — a 3% lead.

Sadly, we haven’t any official benchmark outcomes of AMD’s new Threadripper 5000WX Professional CPUs and AMD’s server CPUs corresponding to Milan and Milan-X to match in opposition to. Nevertheless, if AMD’s 3990X outcomes inform us something, it is that Sapphire Rapids can provide unbelievable efficiency over AMD’s Zen 2 counterparts, which ought to present some good competitors in opposition to Zen 3 Threadripper and EPYC processors.
