Application & Synthetic Testing Continued
Here we see a result of 39.23 seconds for the Unify while overclocked. At stock speeds, it was slightly slower at 41.72 seconds.
This is one of the seemingly rare cases where the manual overclocking of a Ryzen 9 3900X actually improves performance. At stock speeds, the MSI MEG X570 Unify is a bit slower than the other 3900X equipped test systems. When overclocked, it’s the second-fastest in our lineup.
Cinebench is a nice test as it not only benefits from IPC improvements and clock speeds but additional core count as well. Using the MSI MEG X570 Unify, we saw a result of 7544 points overclocked and 7122 at stock speeds with the MSI MEG X570 Unify.
Cinebench R20 – Single Thread
In the single-threaded Cinebench test, performance generally comes down to IPC and clock speed rather than core count. Using the MSI MEG X570 Unify we saw a result of 507 points at stock speeds and 496 points overclocked. This makes sense as the stock speeds allow for higher boost clocks rather than locking the clocks to 4.3GHz.
In this test, I expected the overclocked value to be lower than the stock one. However, that wasn’t the case with our MSI MEG X570 Unify.
In contrast to the Blender test, our Gooseberry test was indeed faster when run on overclocked hardware. The MSI MEG X570 Unify completed the test in 19.51 minutes when overclocked and 20.51 minutes at stock speeds.
