Benchmarks Continued

POV-Ray

In this test, we see a result of 41.91 seconds, or 39.45 using a manual overclock. In either case, the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE is faster than our other systems tested when equipped with a Ryzen 9 3900X.

CHAOSGROUP V-Ray

In the V-Ray test, we see a result of 20,926 K samples with a manual overclock. This is one of the few instances where manually overclocking Ryzen is a good idea over PB2. The only other system that’s even worth mentioning here is the Threadripper 2920X, which still lags the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE system by a large amount.

Cinebench R20 – Multi-Thread

Here is what you would call a “best case” scenario for AMD’s Ryzen 9 3900X and MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE. You can see that the statement isn’t off the mark at all with results that dominate every other test configuration in the lineup. A fair amount of points are also picked up through manual overclocking as this is a multi-threaded workload.

Cinebench R20 – Single Thread

Here we can see Intel and AMD results which are very close to one another. The Intel Core i9 9900K barely manages faster results at stock and overclocked settings when compared to our MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard and 3900X combination.

After Effects CC – Puget Systems

In the After Effects CC test, our MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE scores a result of 930 points stock and 1020 points overclocked. Interestingly, Intel still manages to be faster at stock speeds and manages to outmatch the Threadripper system despite the extra CPU cores and memory bandwidth offered by X399.

Again, we see phenomenal numbers from out MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE test system. The results aren’t terribly surprising as it’s a heavily threaded workload. Again, we see a 12c/24t Threadripper being the only system anywhere near the speed of the Ryzen 9 3900X. If you compare the 3900X vs. the 2700X, you can attribute most of the improvement to core count, but looking at Threadripper compared to the 3900X, we can see that the changes to the architecture are at least as important as the core count when looking at the delta between an 8c/16t Ryzen 2000 series part or an 8c/16t Intel Core i9 9900K.

Lastly, we see results of 20.67 minutes for PB2 and 19.45 minutes for a manual overclock. The overclocked Threadripper 2920X is closest to the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE test system, but it’s not really that close.
