Intel breaks the Cinebench R23 world record with its super-powerful Sapphire Rapids chip

AMD Threadripper has been dethroned as world champion as Intel’s Xeon W9-3495X 56-core workstation processor absolutely crushes it in the industry standard Cinebench R23 benchmark.

Cinebench R23, in case you haven’t used it yet, is a visual rendering benchmark that splits an image into individual segments that are each pulled onto the screen sequentially. The more processing cores and threads you have available to draw those segments, the faster the full image can be rendered and the higher a processor’s resulting score will be.
