AMD Threadripper 3970X Review: Premiere, Blender, Overclocking, & Thermal Benchmarks
- This review shows our benchmarks for the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X CPU, particularly vs. the AMD R9 3950X and Intel i9-10980XE CPUs.

We're comparing the best high-end CPUs of 2019. As we close 2019, we're finally able to start recapping the best high-end CPUs in the HEDT class of parts. This year, HEDT expanded to include a "budget" $750 16-core CPU -- the R9 3950X -- and a similarly affordable 3900X 12-core CPU. Now, with AM4 launches behind us, the Threadripper 3970X and 3960X are coming out to contest the Intel Core i9-10980XE. The 3970X is on bench for review in this video (our 3960X review will follow shortly). Our focus is on finding the best CPUs for video editing and rendering, 3D modeling and animation, Photoshop, and compression and decompression, but with information on overclocking, power, thermals, and gaming along the way. AMD vs. Intel battles are as old as the industry, and with the two companies both launching new HEDT CPUs on the same day, we get to test whose offers the best value for workstation applications. This comparison tests the 3970X vs. 10980XE, 3950X, 3900X, 2990WX, 1950X, and just about every other CPU that's nearby.
