And if the Korean enthusiast under the pseudonym safedisk was able to get only gold in the 64-core and current ranks, then the American Splave set an absolute record among processors with any number of cores/threads!
In the case of a Korean overclocker, the chip operated at a frequency of 5056 MHz, and the final result of this bench session was the first two places in the HWBOT x265 Benchmark-4k discipline with 95.531 frames per second:
The safedisk’s test setup consisted of the following components:
- Motherboard – ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha
- RAM – 4 x 8GB G.SKILL OC World Cup 2019 on Samsung’s chips
- Video card – AMD Radeon R7 340
- Power supply – Super Flower Leadex 1600 watt
- Unknown SSD from Corsair
The American enthusiast decided to take a different path. For his experiments, he chose the relatively lightweight discipline (for such multi-core monsters) wPrime – 1024m and overclocked the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X to an impressive frequency of 5400 MHz, he took absolute superiority in all counts:
Once again, Splave did not indicate the components used for its record, and only by “fortune-telling” from the screenshots it was possible to find out the motherboard – it turned out to be ASRock TRX40 Taichi and RAM manufactured by G.SKILL with model number F4-3800C14-8GTZN (4 strips of 8GB with a total volume of 32GB).
It is certainly too early to judge by several results, but it is already becoming quite obvious that AMD was deliberately delaying the release of a 64-core processor. The Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor does use some incredibly successful crystals, so we expect even more amazing results on new CPUs in the future.
