Intel Core i9 10980XE and ASUS ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore Review
Published: 25th November 2019 | Source: ASUS | Price: |
Like PC Mark, Passmark tests the abilities of your whole system from raw calculation tasks through 2D and 3D graphics performance all the way up to storage speeds. It's an excellent test of the overall capabilities of your system.
Clearly if you want an insane CPU score in Passmark you should go with the 3960X Threadripper. There is no replacement for 48 threads. As for the Intel it's another test in which the Core i9-7980XE nearly matches the i9-10980XE, showing how good the 7th gen CPU is and why we praised it so highly at the time of launch. The Gigabyte Waterforce edges the Rampage VI Encore out in both stock and overclocked setups, whilst the stock Encore sits below the stock Rampage VI Extreme.
