Ryzen Threadripper 1920X vs Xeon W-11855M comparison

In our benchmarks, the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X beats the Xeon W-11855M in overall performance. Despite this, the Xeon W-11855M has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that Ryzen Threadripper 1920X has significantly more cores with 12 compared to the Xeon W-11855M that has 6. It also has more threads than the Xeon W-11855M.

Our database shows that the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X has a slightly higher clock speed than the Xeon W-11855M. Despite this, the Xeon W-11855M has a slightly higher turbo speed.

The Xeon W-11855M outputs less heat than Ryzen Threadripper 1920X thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

In conclusion, all specs and CPU benchmarks considered, will recommend the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X over the Xeon W-11855M.

CPU comparison

Use the table to the left to compare both the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X and the Xeon W-11855M, the advantages and disadvantages of each are shown.

CPU rating

Our CPU rating is split into 4 categories: Overall, Gaming, Multitasking and Heavy Workloads. The overall score accesses performance using all CPU cores, gaming prioritises the first six cores, multitasking takes the first eight cores into account and finally heavy workloads are measured using a sixteen-core baseline.

Processor specifications

The more cores a CPU has, the better the overall performance will be in parallel workloads such as multitasking. Many CPUs have more threads than cores, this means that each physical core is split into multiple logical cores, making them more efficient. Indeed, the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.

Clock speed and Turbo speed are important when comparing per core performance, generally the higher, the better. A higher clock speed may cause a higher TDP, however.

TDP (Thermal Design Power) is a measurement of how much energy is lost as heat when a processor is running. This has an impact on system temperatures. If temperatures get too high (typically around 100 °C or 200 °F), the CPU will lower its performance in order to prevent damage to the chip. Adequate cooling is essential for good performance.

Cache is very fast memory built into the processor. It stores what the CPU is currently working on and anything that doesn't fit is sent to the main system memory, which is slower but more plentiful. It is split into three levels, with Level 1 being the fastest and Level 3 being the slowest. More CPU cache is desirable for high-performance scenarios.
