Compile 1 Million Lines Of C++ In ~2 Minutes With A 16 Core Ryzen 9 5950x

In this article you will learn about 5950x vs 3950x. The recently released AMD Ryzen 9 5950x offers 16 cores and 32 threads so let’s see what kind of performance we can get out of a parallel C++ compile with those 32 threads. At the time of this writing the AMD Ryzen 9 5950x has the highest single core CPU Benchmark score at around 3515. Originally we built this project to benchmark the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990x which has 64 cores and 128 threads. In any event once we had 128 forms in the project we added some generic C++ to each of the 128 units to bring them to over 1000 lines each.
