Again, you can pretend that the cpu score is what this is about. It's not. Read again, I will quote: " AMD Ryzen 9 3950X beats Intel i9-10980XE in 3DMark Firestrike by almost 25%" That is pure bs headline that is 100% false and cannot be defended. It didn't beat the intel, the 2080ti beat the 2070. If they were being honest and if you were being objective the headline would have read: "AMD Ryzen 9 3950x TIES intel i9-10980XE"
