New 3900X Underperforming in R20?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I upgraded from a Threadripper 1950X and that processor performed exactly equal to the public cinebench r20 numbers over on CPU Monkey.

 

Now I've got a Ryzen 9 3900X and according to CPU Monkey, I should score a 521, but I'm scoring a 460, 60 points lower than where it's benchmarked publicly.

 

How much variance is expected on a CPU? Is this indicative of a problem? I noticed I hadn't upped my memory speed to 3600, did that, the score remained the same. I turned up some automatic overclocking settings on my mobo and the score went down. I'm using the standard AMD Wraith cooler that it comes with. and an ASUS TUF X570 Gaming Motherboard, clean install of Windows 10. Any thoughts? Is this normal?

Reboot and try again.

I get low numbers sometimes so it is usually 3 runs with reboot in between.

 

Just after reading your post I did 3 runs and the first was 454. The next was 485 and the last was 500.

Not what I call a reliable bench.  

 

The multi core scores at least put me were I thought I should be(3833) and that is between the R 5 3600x and the R 5 3600xt.

I downloaded Ryzen Master and turned on the default precision boost overdrive and got scores up to 484! So, that's good, 24 points above my first score. I tried restarting and it didn't really change much unfortunately. I wonder what real world impact these point values have... what do you use your comp for mostly? I do video editing with premiere

I use my PCs for playing games only.

I am a retired freelance 3D artist/designer so my computers have been my money makers up until 2018.

 

I don't think high scores mean much if they don't translate to higher performance elsewhere. 

One of my i7 8086k has a 5ghz all core overclock and the other has a 5.1ghz all core overclock and the only test that the 5.1ghz CPU can win is Cinebench and basically no gain anywhere else. The score does look nice in screen shots. 

 

I am only interested in single core performance because I like to mod games and play building games. Higher core strength equals the more content I can add. 

I have games that are unplayable without my CPU overclocks and I can't add more content until much more powerful CPU are on the market. 

 

If I was still doing 3D all the cheap high core count CPUs would make me very happy.  I did mainly low budget jobs so rendering times were a big deal.

I never overclocked my CPUs because if I got a crash overnight it would ruin the next day. The little gain I got from an overclock was never worth that.

nice! yeah part of why i like being an editor is because it let's me justify getting powerful PCs haha.

 

Weird, I just turned off all MB overclocking, set the XMP profile for my RAM to 3600, uninstalled Ryzen Master, and scored 497! My highest score yet with literally no overclocking. Weird lol
