An overclocked Intel Xeon W9-3495 X achieved 132,484 points in Cinebench R23, achieving the highest score ever in this test. The previous record was an overclocked AMD Threadripper PRO 5995WX, with a score of 121,215 points.
The CPU became according to the editors of Wccftech overclocked by members of the Greek Overclocked Gaming Systems team at an ASUS OC event. The team members used an ASUS Pro WS790E-SAGE SE motherboard, 128GB of DDR5 RAM and a liquid nitrogen cooling system. This allowed the clock speed of the Intel chip to be increased to 5.4GHz, instead of running at the standard 2.9GHz.
These adjustments enabled the Intel Xeon W9-3495X to achieve a score of 132,484 points in Cinebench R23. That’s more than the score of the AMD Threadripper PRO 5995WX. It achieved 121,215 points in the same test at the end of last year. The AMD CPU was then also cooled with nitrogen and reached a clock speed of 5.4 GHz, just like the Intel CPU. Wfcctech notes that the Threadripper does have more cores and threads compared to the Xeon CPU: 64 cores and 128 threads, compared to 56 cores and 112 threads.
The Intel Xeon W9-3495 X has 56 cores, 112 threads, 112 PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes, 105MB of cache memory and achieves approximately 70,000 points in Cinebench R23 by default. If the chip is not overclocked, it achieves an average power consumption of 400 to 500W. The first benchmarks of this chip appeared online at the end of last month.
