AMD managed to outperform its arch-rival Intel in terms of performance. Here is the fastest processor! The processor market continues to heat up.
On the PC side, processors developed for both gaming and workstation fueled the competition between the two giants. The rivalry between AMD and Intel has long been Intel’s lead. However, AMD managed to surprise everyone by surpassing its rival in performance today. The development team of the Master Lu performance test has published ratings of the most productive processors for desktop and laptop computers.
AMD dominates the ranking of the fastest desktop processors in the world. However, it lagged behind Intel as the fastest performing laptop processor. At the same time, AMD ranks the other four in the top five.
AMD performance leader on desktop
The 64-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X led the ranking of the most productive desktop processors with a score of 1,718,608. Second place went to the 32-core Ryzen Threadripper 3970X with 1,271,635 points.
The 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X took third place with a score of 1,052,712. Fourth place went to the 24-core Threadripper. The only Intel processor in the top five was the i9-10980XE with a score of 915913.
Laptop leadership still in Intel
The Intel Core i7-11800H led the notebook processors ranking with 667,148 points, while the second-placed Ryzen 9 5900HX scored only 584,684 points.
The developers of the Master Lu benchmark highlight how strong AMD has made a leap in the computing power of its chips in recent years, allowing it to surpass Intel in several areas and even regain market share. However, Intel remains the market leader in terms of sales, accounting for 70 percent of the worldwide desktop PC market.
The competition between the two companies will undoubtedly benefit us. The fact that AMD is cheaper than Intel in terms of price and performs more may cause Intel to cut prices in the future.
