For the maximum in this test, the results of the most powerful processor in the site database are taken. And it is clear that this is a server processor, on which no one will play games. Because the cost of this processor reaches several tens of thousands of dollars. Therefore, if you think that the selected CPU has a little game result, just look at the FPS that it produces in real games in the summary table below.
List of less popular games in which CPU comparisons were performed: Forza Horizon 4, Half-Life: Alyx, Control, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, Metro Exodus, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS GO), Ghostrunner, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), Horizon Zero Dawn, NBA 2K20, Battlefield V, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Monster Hunter World, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, League of Legends (LOL), Microsoft Flight Simulator, DOTA 2A, Hitman 3.

The numbers in this table indicate the maximum FPS that was received on the device with the corresponding processor. Depending on the configuration of the computer (RAM size and Video Card) and graphics quality settings (Ultra, Medium, Normal), the results may differ quite significantly. We recommend that you better study the results of the Cinebench, GeekBench and Passmark becnmarks.
The computers participating in the comparisons not only were the equipped with different video cards and different amounts of RAM. But users also tested them at different screen resolutions: 2K, FullHD or 4K. Therefore, the game benchmark data is approximate. But all video cards met the average system requirements of games. You will get more accurate information about how powerful the processor will be in games, if you compare it in one assembly with the video card that is installed in your computer.


Power consumption
EPYC 754320% Ryzen Threadripper 3990X15%
To make a finishing decision on which processor is better, you should also consider the generation of its core. It is clear that the newer the generation, the better the performance of the processor in games and benchmarks, as well as its energy efficiency. In this case the EPYC 7543 is more energy efficient than the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X as it consumes less power: 225W vs. 280W. Power consumption is especially important for laptops. Also, when choosing a processor cooling system, you must know its TDP. It is necessary to calculate so that the TDP data specified in the cooler specification is greater than the TDP of the compared processor.

Software benchmarks

If you plan to use the processor not only for gaming, but also for programming, streaming, machine learning, video rendering or video editing, then the main parameter for you is its performance in multi-threaded mode. In this mode, the processor uses all cores and threads that it has to the maximum to achieve maximum performance. You will find out this data from the benchmark tables below. Before you take into account the data from these tests, be sure to find out whether the software that you are going to use on your computer can work in multi-threaded mode. Since there are still many programs that can use only one core to run, and all the benefit of multi-core mode turns out to be unnecessary.

Comparison of specifications

In the specification comparison table, the processor release date and overclocking capability will be the most useful. The newer the processor, the longer it will last you. And the easier it will be to upgrade the system in the future. The same can be said about overclocking. If the processor can be overclocked, increasing its performance, then it will still be able to produce maximum FPS even in the newest games. Accordingly, you do not need to buy a new CPU to enjoy the games any longer. The savings are obvious!

In this comparison block, you should pay attention to the differences in clock speed and the number of cores. Here Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is 3% better than EPYC 7543 in terms of CPU frequency. Another difference is that Ryzen Threadripper 3990X has 32 more core than EPYC 7543. Also keep in mind that high CPU frequency affects battery life through power consumption (relevant for laptops).

Result:
The number of parameters for which AMD EPYC 7543 is better: 5
The number of parameters for which AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is better: 27
   However, it should be realized that all the figures in the table above do not mean that taking them into account you should fully trust a simple comparison of these figures. Better to watch the testing video and read the reviews of of people who bought AMD EPYC 7543 and AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X before making a selection which CPU to buy for gaming and which not.
