At some point, the fuss of enthusiasts around the Ryzen Threadripper 3-generation processors practically stopped and for about a half month, the owners of the latest records on these chips quietly sat on their pedestals.
Nevertheless, this could not go on forever. The British overclocker under the nickname RSR got hold of a very successful sample of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X processor and with its help surpassed his colleagues in the current and 24-core ranks of the wPrime – 1024m and Cinebench – R15 disciplines:
In wPrime – 1024m, the chip clocked at 4475.1 MHz, and the final result was 23 seconds, 342 milliseconds.
In Cinebench – R15, the frequency dropped to 4474 MHz (most likely an error in the measurement of the CPU-z utility, rather than an intentional reduction in the frequency by an overclocker), and the result was 6827 points.
The RSR test setup consisted of the following components:
- Motherboard – ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme
- RAM – G.SKILL TridentZ RGB F4-4266C17-8GTZR (4 x 8GB)
- Power supply – SuperNOVA T2 1200 watt
- Video card – EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Kingpin Edition
