AMD’s Ryzen 7000 (Raphael) processors will be out soon, but the chipmaker has wasted no time showing off the Ryzen 9 7950X’s overclocking prowess . Famed hardware detective Tum_Apisak (opens in new tab) has dug up some hidden CPU-Z submissions that showcase the Ryzen 9 7950X under liquid nitrogen (LN2), and the results are simply remarkable. Leading AMD’s Ryzen 7000 army and potentially one of the best CPUs , the Ryzen 9 7950X wields 16 Zen 4 cores, 32 threads, and a 4.5 GHz base clock. The 16-core flagship has a boost clock speed up to 5.7 GHz. However, under the right thermal conditions, the Ryzen 9 7950X can boost up to 5.85 GHz since that’s the Fmax (maximum frequency limit) that AMD programmed into the chip. The first of the two submissions showed the Ryzen 9 7950X attaining a single-core boost clock up of 7,247 MHz at 1.506V. It’s a spectacular feat no doubt, but it’s still leagues away from breaking the world record. The FX-8370 is the current world record holder with a clock speed of 8,722 MHz. For comparison, the Ryzen 9 5950X only got to 6,350 MHz, so the Ryzen 9 7950X posted a 14% higher… Read full this story
