For comparison, we pitted it against the Armari Threadripper and Intel Core i9 workstations in our previous head-to-head test, as well as the Scan 3XS GW-HTX35 and Armari Magnetar V25R-RA750G2, and Armari’s Threadripper 2990wx system we reviewed recently, although not all of our benchmarks were run on these systems.
