Intel’s 56-core Xeon W9-3495X “Sapphire Rapids” CPU benchmarked

Intel's new HEDT platform is right around the corner. A few enthusiasts have already managed to get hold of the upcoming chips, allowing them to test Intel's new generation of HEDT CPUs before their release. In one video, we see the 56-core Xeon W9-3495X tested at stock speeds and overclocked across a range of benchmarks. 

In Der8auer's video, you'll see the Xeon W9-3495X tested in various benchmarks running at stock settings and overclocked. To put things in perspective, this 56C/112T CPU has a base frequency of 1.9GHz and a max boost frequency of 4.8GHz (4.2GHz all-core), but the overclocker was able to push it up to 5.2GHz.

To test the CPU, Der8auer used an Asus Pro W790 motherboard, G.Skill XMP DDR5 memory and a 360mm AIO from Cooler Master. At stock settings, the CPU scored 1,600 points in the Geekbench single-core test and 53,817 points in the multi-core test. During this test, power consumption peaked at 1097W but stood between 300W and 650W most of the time.

In Cinebench R23, the CPU scored 70,079 points in the multi-core benchmark at stock settings (2.9GHz all-core). That's about the same as the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX. However, through overclocking, Der8auer found that the CPU still had plenty to give. Pushing the CPU's all-core frequency to 5.2GHz, the overclocker increased the score to 128,391 points, setting a new unofficial record for Cinebench R23 multi-core (the current record is 113,566 points).

KitGuru says: Intel's new HEDT platform looks like a decent alternative to the latest Ryzen Threadripper Pro chips. However, that may not last as AMD's next generation of HEDT chips should launch before the end of the year.
