  1. Testing by AMD performance labs on 10/28/2019, comparing the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X 24-core desktop processor to the Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX (formerly the world's fastest 24-core), Using the Cinebench R20 single-core benchmark score and Cinebench R20 multi-core benchmark score to measure single-core and multi-core performance for each processor. Performance results may vary. CPK-16
  2. Specifications of 3rd generation Ryzen Threadripper processors as of October 29th, 2019. As of October 8, 2019, the AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper processors can deliver 144GB/s of bandwidth. Intel's competing high-end desktop processor, the Core i9-10980XE, can deliver up to 52GB/s of bandwidth. 52/144=2.77 times the bandwidth on 3rd gen AMD Threadripper. The desktop platform that previously offered the most bandwidth on desktop was the 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper processor, which could deliver up to 128 GB/s of bandwidth. CPK-14
