British overclocker Jumper118 got his hands on a copy of the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X chip (literally bought from a local retailer) and was actually the first to share with the public his research on a fresh 6-core, 12-thread processor based on the Zen 3 architecture.
Supposedly, the sample of the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X chip tested by Jumper118 operated at near-base frequencies, and the enthusiast himself experimented more with downvolting in his bench session than with overclocking.
|Discipline:||Ryzen 5 5600X result:||Ryzen 5 5600X frequency:|
|Cinebench – R15||2040 points in the multi-threaded test|
258 points in the single-threaded test
|HWBOT x265 Benchmark – 4k||16.167 fps||4650.6MHz|
|Geekbench3||37283 points in the multi-threaded test|
6746 points in the single-threaded test
According to the overclocker, the required voltage for stable operation of the Ryzen 5 5600X at 4600 MHz is only 1,200 volts, which is an extremely good result and indicates a very significant optimization of the new architecture by AMD engineers.
Yes, the processor is stable at 4.6 GHz with 1.2 volts in BIOS. When loaded, it drops to 1.16 volts. 1.25 volts in BIOS is required for stable operation at 4.7 GHz. But in this case, there was a glitch in the X265 4k benchmark, so I lowered the chip frequency to 4.65 GHz, and successfully completed my tests. 🙂Jumper118
The test setup, which took on board the new 6-core AMD chip, consisted of the following components:
- Motherboard – ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero;
- RAM – 2 x 8GB Patriot Viper 4400 C19 Series;
- Video cards – NVIDIA GeForce GT 710;
- Power suply – Super Flower Leadex 1300W.
And it looked like this:
