PC Specialist Nucleus AMD Threadripper 2990WX Workstation

CINEBENCH 15 is a cross-platform testing suite that measures hardware performance and is the de facto standard benchmarking tool for leading companies and trade journals for conducting real-world hardware performance tests. With the new Release 15, systems with up to 256 threads can be tested.

CINEBENCH is available for both Windows and OS X and is used by almost all hardware manufacturers and trade journals for comparing CPUs and graphics cards.


The rendering score of 4,585 in Maxon Cinebench R15 is phenomenal. It’s 25 per cent faster than the result we saw with the Armari Magnetar S18X-RD850G’s 18-core Intel Core i9-7980XE processor.

However, the Armari Magnetar S32T-RD1000G2 is 25 per cent faster still, with the same processor, showing what a more optimised hardware platform can provide. We have a possible explanation for this, but will present this later in the review.

The Cinebench R15 OpenGL test is quite sensitive to clock speed, and although the Quadro P4000 is reasonable in this area, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX loses out against most of the CPUs in our comparison systems on frequency. So its score here is the slowest.
