AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Compression Benchmarks

7-Zip comes with a bench-marking tool built inside it. The bench-marking is done through the LZMA compression and decompression. The tool checks how fast your CPU is able to process the compression and decompression instructions. The LZMA stands for the Lempel–Ziv–Markov chain Algorithm which is used for the lossless compression of the data. 7-Zip uses some dummy data and then uses the LZMA to compress/decompress it for the benchmark. The benchmark ratings are displayed in terms of MIPS (million instructions per second). One of the interesting elements on modern processors is encoding performance. This includes encryption/decryption, as well as video transcoding from one video format to another. In the encrypt/decrypt scenario, this remains pertinent to on-the-fly encryption of sensitive data - a process by which more modern devices are leaning to for software security.

Ryzen 9 3950X 7-Zip 1805 Combined Performance

The Ryzen 9 3950X sits between Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 9 7900X. It is 10% lower than the Ryzen 9 5950X while being 6.8% higher than the Ryzen 9 7900X. The Ryzen 9 3950X takes a comfortable 110.3% lead over the Core i9-9900KS. In this benchmark, the Ryzen 9 3950X has an impressive performance, which is way ahead of the last generation Ryzen 7 2700X by 141.2%. With 8 additional cores, the Ryzen 9 3950X provides a smoother experience than the Ryzen 7 2700X. Again, the Ryzen 7 2700X tumbles down the chart, falling behind its Zen 2-based successor. That's a ~141.2% generational speed-up in this title. The Ryzen 7 2700X clearly shows how significantly the high-end Pinnacle Ridge-based CPUs fall behind the Zen 2 models. The Ryzen 9 3950X's performance earns it the 3rd place. AMD's Ryzen 9 3950X notches a small win over the Ryzen 7 2700X, but opens up an impressive lead over the stock Core i9-9900KS. Overall, the Ryzen 9 3950X is a very good performer with its 16-cores and 32-threads in this benchmark.
