Often, when releasing new CPUs, the American overclocker Splave takes a wait-and-see attitude: he slowly examines the overclocking potential of fresh processors, watches the achievements of his colleagues, and after a while (from a week to a month) publishes virtually ultimatum results.
This is what happened today. The American got his hands on an extremely successful sample of a brand new 16-core, 32-thread AMD Ryzen 9 5950X chip, overclocking it to 6057 MHz, and set a record in the 16-core rank of the most popular Cinebench – R15 discipline:
The Ryzen 9 5950X processor was accompanied by the top-end motherboard ASRock X570 Aqua and the popular G.SKILL F4-3800C14-8GTZN RAM kit consisting of two 8GB strips.
Separately, I would like to note the significantly increased overclocking potential of Ryzen 5000 processors: On average, compared to the 3000 line, it grew by 200-400 MHz. And according to a few studies, the vast majority of Zen 3 chips tested can overcome the 6000 MHz mark when using liquid nitrogen.
