AMD Ryzen 9 7950X sets world records with all-core overclocking at 5.8 GHz

The powerful 16-core AMD Raphael CPU doesn’t need extravagant cooling to set world records. Sampson and blueleader have now broken four records after being cleared to reveal their Ryzen 9 7950X findings. Not surprisingly, all four of them were cracked with the most recent CPU, but the fact that none of the cracks required liquid nitrogen is astonishing.

Both overclockers broke four records while using AORUS X670E Xtreme, ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme, ASRock’s X670E Taichi or MSI X670E MEG ACE motherboards with a Corsair H115i liquid cooler AIO cooler: for example, Cinebench R15, R20, R23 and 7-zip.

According to Benchmate’s data, the CPUs in all cores have been operating at a frequency of 5.45-5.50 GHz while maintaining a temperature of 87.4-108.2 degrees Celsius. The data also shows that the Ryzen 9 7950X has been operating at power levels between 226W and 244W, which is well within the maximum power range for the AM5 jack.

The embargo on Ryzen 7000 ratings could be lifted by AMD as early as September 26, the day before it goes on sale and the day before Intel unveils its Raptor Lake CPUs.
