Monero Hashrate kH/s

The crypto currency Monero has been using the RandomX algorithm since November 2019. This PoW (proof of work) algorithm can only efficiently be calculated using a processor (CPU) or a graphics card (GPU). The CryptoNight algorithm was used for Monero until November 2019, but it could be calculated using ASICs. RandomX benefits from a high number of CPU cores, cache and a fast connection of the memory via as many memory channels as possible. Tested with XMRig v6.x under the operation system HiveOS.

Blender 2.81 (bmw27)

Blender is a free 3D graphics software for rendering (creating) 3D bodies, which can also be textured and animated in the software. The Blender benchmark creates predefined scenes and measures the time (s) required for the entire scene. The shorter the time required, the better. We selected bmw27 as the benchmark scene.

With the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X it creates a 16 core processor in the mainstream area for the first time in 2019. The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X clocks its cores with 3.5 GHz (base) or 4.0 GHz (Turbo). If only one core is loaded, the processor even reaches a clock frequency of 4.7 GHz.

Thanks to hyperthreading, the operating system 32 logical processors are available, which is especially useful for computational applications or virtualization. Like all the Ryzen processors, the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X can be overclocked thanks to the free multiplier.

The TDP is indicated with (for a 16-core processor) low 105 watts, but can rise to up to 250 watts when overclocking the processor. The CPU has 64 MB Level 3 cache.

Memory is officially supported in dual channel mode (2 memory channels) with up to DDR4-3200, with a good motherboard and high-quality memory but also significantly higher clock frequencies of the memory. The error correction "ECC" of the memory is supported, but requires a motherboard which can use this function. An error correction is e.g. Important in workstations or servers if data errors must be detected quickly.

The new 3rd generation Ryzen processors also support the new PCIe 4.0, which doubles the data rates between the processor and connected devices (e.g., graphics cards) compared to the predecessor standard.

The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X relies on the Zen 2 architecture and is manufactured in Globalfoundries, a former AMD division, in 7 Nm structure. GlobalFoundries currently employs around 16,000 people and comes to a consolidated sales of just under $ 6 billion.

The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X appeared in the 3rd quarter of 2019 and is listed at AMD at a price of approx. 650 USD.
