3950X vs i9-9980XE specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important features of the i9-9980XE and Ryzen 9 3950X microprocessors. These characteristics, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of extra threads, offered by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, while lighter area is for additional frequency, provided by Turbo feature. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.

CPUIDs

The table below compares support for x86 extensions and technologies, as well as individual instructions and low-level features of the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and Intel Core i9-9980XE microprocessors. Information in this table was retrieved from actual processors using CPUID instruction, and we also utilized internal timer to measure CPU frequency. Be aware that all technologies, disabled in BIOS or by a virtual machine, will be shown as not supported. Different steppings of Intel processors may also have slightly different features. In rare cases, measured frequency may differ from official specifications.
