A never before seen AMD processor appears benchmarked on Geekbench with the model name “AMD Sharkstooth” with 32 cores and 64 threads, scoring almost twice the average multi-core score of the Intel Core i9-9980XE. The AMD Sharkstooth processor, an alleged third-generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor featuring the Zen 2 architecture, scored an impressive 93,344 in Geekbench. For comparison, the Intel Core i9-9980XE’s average multi-core benchmark score is currently 49,023. This particular 32-core “AMD Sharkstooth” processor scored 190% in multi-core performance versus the current Intel HEDT platform flagship - Intel Core i9-9980XE processor.

The listed AMD Sharkstooth processor is identified as an authentic “AMD Family 23” thus indicating the Zen 2 architecture. The AMD Sharkstooth processor with the model name “AMD 100-000000011-11” was tested using an AMD WhiteHavenOC-CP motherboard and 128GB memory, a setup which we can assume is coming from AMD themselves. Do note that the upcoming AMD Ryzen 9 3950X processor have already beaten the Intel Core i9-9980XE in Geekbench. This could mean big for AMD in the high-end desktop platform market against its rival Intel.

Quick Comparison with AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX Processor

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX processor also has the same core and thread count as the listed AMD Sharkstooth processor with 32 cores and 64 threads. However, the Threadripper 2990WX’s Geekbench multi-core scores are nowhere near the Sharkstooth’s scores. The “AMD 100-000000011-11” Sharkstooth processor comes with a higher base frequency at 3.60GHz. The Geekbench post also reveals some of the specifications of the Sharkstooth processor which we will compare below.
