General info

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
2.Has integrated graphics
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X
Intel Core i9-10900K
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
3.GPU clock speed

Not applicable

350MHz

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
If the CPU exceeds the maximum operating temperature then problems such as random resets can occur.
Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) is a high-speed interface standard for connecting components, such as graphics cards and SSDs, to a motherboard. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
7.DirectX version

Not applicable

12

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
8.OpenGL version

Not applicable

4.5

OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
9.GPU turbo

Not applicable

1200MHz

When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.

Performance

1.CPU speed

64 x 2.9GHz

10 x 3.7GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
4.Has an unlocked multiplier
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X
Intel Core i9-10900K
Some processors come with an unlocked multiplier which makes them easy to overclock, allowing you to gain increased performance in games and other apps.
5.L2 cache

32MB

2.5MB

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
6.L3 cache

256MB

20MB

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
7.L1 cache

4000KB

640KB

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
8.L2 core

0.5MB/core

0.25MB/core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
9.L3 core

4MB/core

2MB/core

More data can be stored in the L3 cache for access by each core of the CPU.

Memory

1.RAM speed

3200MHz

2933MHz

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
DDR (Double Data Rate) memory is the most common type of RAM. Newer versions of DDR memory support higher maximum speeds and are more energy-efficient.
More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
6.bus transfer rate

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X)

8GT/s

The bus is responsible for transferring data between different components of a computer or device.
