While the Ryzen 9 7950X processor won’t go on sale until next week, some overclockers have already gotten their hands on CPU data and have even achieved record-breaking 16-core results in several synthetic benchmarks. Moreover, what is even more interesting, for this they did not need extreme cooling.
Enthusiasts Sampson and blueleader have updated the 16-core records in Cinebench R23, Cinebench R20, Cinebench R15 and 7-Zip with an overclocked Ryzen 9 7950X. They forced the processor to work at a frequency of 5.35 to 5.5 GHz for all 16 cores, depending on the test. At the same time, only a ready-made Corsair H115i liquid cooling system with a 280 mm radiator was used. Temperatures in the tests ranged from 87 to 108 ° C, and power consumption – from 226 to 244 watts.
As a result, in the Cinebench R23 multi-threaded test, the Ryzen 9 7950X processor at 5.4 GHz scored 40,498 points, thereby beating the previous record holder Core i9-12900KS. At the same time, in order to score 40,412 points, the latter required cooling with liquid nitrogen and overclocking to 7 GHz. Now it will be very interesting to see what kind of result the Ryzen 9 7950X will provide with extreme cooling.
In Cinebench R20, AMD’s new flagship at 5.35 GHz clocked in at 15,771 points, thus beating the Ryzen 9 5950X overclocked to 6 GHz under liquid nitrogen. And in Cinebench R15, the novelty overclocked to 5.5 GHz and scored 6900 points – the previous record also belonged to the Ryzen 9 5950X, overclocked under liquid nitrogen to 6 GHz.
Finally, the record was updated in 7-Zip, where the Ryzen 9 7950X at 5.45 GHz showed a result of 228,922 MIPS. The previous record was held by the Ryzen 9 5950X running at 5.24 GHz under liquid nitrogen.
