Who stated you want unique cooling to interrupt overclocking information? A gaggle of overclockers have taken AMD’s Ryzen 9 7950X Zen 4 (Raphael) processor, touted as one of many finest CPUs, and set 4 new overclocking information for the 16-core processor class. The fascinating a part of the feats is that the overclockers used a standard 280mm AIO liquid cooler.
The Ryzen 9 7950X hit 5.4 GHz on all 16 cores to attain 40,498 factors in Cinebench R23 to outpace the Core i9-12900KS, the earlier document holder. For comparability, the Core i9-12900KS needed to attain 7 GHz below liquid nitrogen (LN2) to rake in 40,412 factors. Though the margin of distinction was minimal, it was spectacular to see the Ryzen 9 7950X got here out on high with a 23% decrease clock pace. It simply goes to point out Zen 4 has a tricky cookie to beat.
AMD’s Zen 4 flagship additionally took residence the trophy because the quickest 16-core chip in Cinebench R20. Surprisingly, the Ryzen 9 7950X solely achieved an all-core clock pace of 5.35 GHz. Nonetheless, it was sufficient to beat the Ryzen 9 5950X, which had beforehand set the document at 6 GHz with LN2 cooling.
|Rating||Clock Velocity (GHz)||Motherboard||Reminiscence|
|Cinebench R23||40,498||5.4||ASRock X670E Taichi||32GB DDR5-4800 C40|
|Cinebench R20||15,771||5.35||Gigabyte X670E Aorus Grasp||32GB DDR6-6000 C30|
|Cinebench R15||6,900||5.5||Asus ROG Crosshair X670E Hero||16GB DDR5-6000 C30|
|7-Zip||228,992||5.45||MSI MEG X670E Ace||32GB DDR5-5800 C38|
The Ryzen 9 7950X had its finest efficiency within the older Cinebench R15 benchmark, which soared to five.5 GHz on all cores. Consequently, the chip scored 6,900 factors to beat the Ryzen 9 5950X’s 6,832 factors. The latter had achieved the mark with a 6 GHz clock pace below LN2.
The final document pertained to 7-Zip, the place the Ryzen 9 7950X attained a 5.45 GHz all-core clock pace to place up 228,922 MIPS. Admittedly, it was probably the most vital delta out of the 4 information. The Ryzen 9 7950X outperformed the Ryzen 9 5950X at 5.24 GHz (LN2) by a 4.4% margin.
The overclocking information right this moment are only a preview of what is to return. AMD is working with famend excessive overclockers to push Zen 4 into new heights with LN2. As well as, count on the Ryzen 9 7950X to disrupt the overclocking scene very quickly.
