Winners of the Tomachi’s Best CPUs for July 2019 are:
- AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X @ 3.5 GHz (Overall winner has best compute per dollar in top 50 fastest CPUs)
- Intel Xeon E5-2640 @ 2.50 GHz (Most compute per dollar)
- Intel Xeon Platinum 8176 @ 2.1 GHz (Absolute Fastest CPU by PassMark)
I’ve heard great things about the AMD Threadripper series of CPUs, $499 USD the overall winner comes in with a PassMark score of 21,847 and 43 points per dollar.
Intel must be doing something special to get so much work done with so little clock cycles in their Xeon series chips, which appear in both the actual fastest CPU and best value. At what would appear to be anomalous pricing, you can currently get a E5-2640 @ 2.5 GHz for only $29.
Perhaps Xeon works especially well with the PassMark CPU benchmark these results are based on, because it throws out a whopping 30,583 on the benchmark.
