Synthetic and Application Testing

Benchmark Test Systems

The following system configurations were used for the Sandra memory benchmark graph, as well as all graphs listed under the Application and Gaming Benchmarks sections:

SiSoft Sandra

Note that all results above were obtained running the installed memory in dual-channel or quad-channel memory modes where applicable.

Here we can see the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE performing roughly about the same as an X470 motherboard using a Ryzen 2700X. The difference could easily be chalked up to a margin of error.

In the CPU test, it comes as no surprise that the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE equipped with a Ryzen 9 3900X would be at the top of the pile.

wPrime v2.10

In our wPrime test, the Ryzen 9 3900X and MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE scores another victory. Although, this is another test where the Intel setup is hot on its heels.

WinRAR

WinRAR is a bit of an odd test as it is multi-threaded, and all things being equal, CPU’s with higher core counts do better. That said, single-threaded performance factors in as well. You can see from the graph, the Intel Core i9 9900K isn’t far behind. However, for whatever reason it does very poorly overclocked. The MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE is the fastest system we’ve ever seen in this test, but not by much.
