The result of the Intel Core i9-7920X in the test Geekbench disappointing
As you know, Intel Core i9-7920X will be on sale August 28, and older model of the family — a month later.
Core i9-7920X has 12 cores with a frequency of 2.9 to 4.4 GHz and is estimated at $ 1,200. Yesterday the CPU lit up in the Geekbench database FOR.
New 5172 scored points in a single thread and 32 776 points in multi-threaded. This result is below expectations. For comparison, the OCTA-core Core i7-7820X gaining about 6,000 and 47,000 points, respectively. However, it has much higher base frequency, which may explain the advantage in single-threaded test. But the loss of the 12-core models in multithreaded, you can explain except that the fact that the testing was a custom-made sample.
Those who were going to buy this CPU since it first came out, it was to be hoped that the serial situation will be different.
