Summary benchmark results

As a percentage of the maximum value based on a sample from the entire base of all processors

Processor Benchmark
Core i9-13900K90% Ryzen Threadripper 3960X80%
This parameter shows the performance of the processors in single-threaded and multi-threaded mode. In this comparison, Core i9-13900K is 11% better than Ryzen Threadripper 3960X. The data source is several popular tests. More detailed information of the benchmarks is below.

Gaming performance
Summary result of all game benchmarks.
Core i9-13900K78% Ryzen Threadripper 3960X72%
The maximum result in this parameter is 100 percent, which is the performance of the most powerful processor currently available. And it is clear that this is a server processor, on which no one will run games. Because the cost of this processor reaches several tens of thousands of dollars. And if it seems to you that the selected CPU has a little game result, look at the FPS that it produces in real games in the summary table below.
List of other games in which processors were compared: Forza Horizon 4, League of Legends (LOL), PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), Monster Hunter World, DOTA 2A, Control, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS GO), Hitman 3, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Half-Life: Alyx, Battlefield V, NBA 2K20, Horizon Zero Dawn, Metro Exodus, Ghostrunner, Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Red Dead Redemption 2108.899.4
DOOM Eternal78.872.0
Assassin's Creed132.4121.0
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 tested computers not only did they have different amounts of RAM and different video cards. But users also tested them at different screen resolutions: 2K, FullHD or 4K. So the game benchmark data is approximate. But all video cards met the average system requirements of games. To be sure exactly how much performance 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
Core i9-13900K126% Ryzen Threadripper 3960X15%
To make a finishing choice on which processor is better, you should also consider the generation of its core. The newer the processor generation, the better its performance in games and benchmarks, as well as its energy efficiency. In this case the Core i9-13900K is more energy efficient than the Ryzen Threadripper 3960X as it consumes less power: 125W vs. 280W. Power consumption is particularly important for laptops. And TDP should be taken into account when choosing a processor cooling system. You need to buy a cooler that has the TDP data specified in the specification was greater than the TDP of the compared processor.

Software benchmarks

For example you plan to use the processor not only for gaming, but also for machine learning, programming, streaming, video rendering or video editing, then first of all you need to pay attention to the performance in multi-threaded mode. In this mode, the CPU turns on all cores and threads that it has to the maximum to reach 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 make sure that the program that you are going to use on your computer can work in multi-threaded mode. Since there are still many programs that 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 helpful. 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 continue to maintain maximum FPS in the newest games. The economy are obvious! It turns out that you do not need to buy a new CPU to enjoy the games any longer.

In this comparison block, you should pay attention to the differences in clock speed and the number of cores. Here Ryzen Threadripper 3960X is 7% better than Core i9-13900K in terms of CPU frequency. Another difference is that Ryzen Threadripper 3960X has 16 more core than Core i9-13900K. Also keep in mind that high CPU frequency affects battery life through power consumption (relevant for laptops).

The number of parameters for which Intel Core i9-13900K is better: 32
The number of parameters for which AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X is better: 5
   Although it should be realized that all the number in the article above do not mean that taking them into account you should undividedly trust a simple comparison of these figures. Better to watch the video tests and read the reviews of real owners of Intel Core i9-13900K and AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X before deciding which CPU to buy for gaming and which not.
