The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, the company’s flagship CPU, will be released in only five days, and it’s already generating headlines in the overclocking world record rankings. Just recently, two overclockers demonstrated the capability of the AMD Zen4 CPU with a simple all-in-one cooling system, smashing four new world records.
AMD Ryzen 7000, also known as “Raphael,” can accomplish considerably more, although the actual results are still under wraps. Evaluators are already putting the new Ryzen CPUs through their paces and should get their verdicts a day before the release. However, this does not rule out the possibility of certain findings being leaked with the aid of hardware leakers.
APISAK revealed that one sample of the Ryzen 9 7950X CPU ran at 7247 MHz on 1.506V, while another ran at 6500 MHz on 1.465V across all cores. Such results are undoubtedly possible with liquid nitrogen or other sub-zero cooling.
On September 27th, AMD plans to release its Ryzen 7000 series. After the official review embargo is lifted on September 26th, we’ll discover much more about Zen4 for desktops. This should also incorporate the extreme overclockers’ world records. As a result, the amount of performance gain from an 800 MHz overclock remains unclear.
