Extreme Overclocker, SkatterBencher, overclocks AMD’s unpublished Ryzen Threadripper 5990X HEDT CPU at an impressive 4.82 GHz across all 64 cores in a custom water-loop setup.
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X CPU drops 100,000 points on the Cinebench R23 across all 64s of 4.82 GHz
Tested by AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU Skaterbencher This is the 5990X which is not a chip that the red team has officially unveiled. In fact, it is an engineering specimen that was able to achieve clock speeds (average 2.27 GHz) of overclocker 64 cores, 128 threads, 283 MB in L3 cache and 2.65 GHz in stock. The CPU was tested in ASUS ROG ZENITH II Extreme Alpha with 32 GB (8 x 4) DDR4-2144 memory. For cooling, an EK-Quantum custom-loop water cooler was used.
This particular sample has an OPN code labeled ‘100-000000443-40_Y’ which is similar to the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 sample. Different benchmark databases. This confirms that AMD had standard non-pro chips as engineering samples but decided not to publish them for unknown reasons. Based on AMD Recent HEDT strategies, It looks like the company will focus on most workstations and pro segments which means that the standard 3D dripper X-series chips will be out of action for the foreseeable future. Another important point is that the CPU works with the TRX40 ZENITH II Extreme where the Threadripper is not meant to work on anything other than 5000WX CPUs. WRX80 platform which is more expensive.
Now back to the benchmark, SkatterBencher is known for using all kinds of overclocking techniques including PBO, Curve Optimizer and Manual Overclocking. The best results on the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X CPU were achieved through manual overclocking which is not surprising. The only drawback is the limited maximum single-threaded boost frequency but the advantages of manual overclocking outweigh the disadvantages and are better than PBO when you are fishing for maximum performance gain. Each CCD was tested and out of 8 CCDs on the Ryzen Threadripper 5990X chip, CCD4 provided the best tuning results, achieving up to 4.82 GHz at 1.45V.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X 100K Cinebench R23 Record:
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X OC vs Stock CPU:
In terms of performance, compared to the stock HEDT chip, the manually overclocked AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X CPU AI achieved more than 50% gain on the benchmark, 58% gain on the Cinebench R23 and more than 80% performance on the 3DMark CPU profile. Criteria. Also CPU The 100K (100,000) score broke the barrier Multi-threaded on the Cinebench R23 which is just insane. While running the Synebench, the chip was out at a clock speed of 4.525 GHz and a CPU temperature of up to 95C. The CPU has received an insane 691W package power with manual overclocking.
Not only this, the overclocker also provides one Guide to achieving 4.65 GHz in 5 minutes On the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X CPU. It remains to be seen whether this will work similarly with the 5995WX until users get to buy the chip in the DIY segment. There will be some specific motherboards such as MSI WS WRX80The ASUS WRX80 PRO WS SAGE SE, ASRock WRX80 CreatorAnd GB WRX80 SU8 Which offers overclocking support on the Threadripper Pro CPU. This has been confirmed by Tomshardware after contact by an official AMD representative as quoted below:
[Editor’s Note: After publishing this story, an AMD representative contacted us via email, pointing out that the 5000 WX-series is actually unlocked for overclocking, contrary to the statements below. The company also provided a link to public documents about Threadripper 5000 WX that states, in part, ” Select WRX80 motherboards from our ODM partners will support both memory and CPU overclocking for users looking to push the limits of their workstation even further.”
AMD has confirmed that they aren’t done with Threadripper CPUs and will be releasing Zen 4 parts next year but whether they remain a Pro-only solution or come in DIY flavors for mainstream HEDT platforms remains to be seen.
