Igor’s Lab has learned that AMD’s Zen 3-based successor to the Ryzen 9 3950X, the Ryzen 9 4950X (5950X?), will likely feature a 3.5 GHz base clock and 4.8 GHz boost clock. That’s very similar to the Ryzen 9 3950X, which features the same base clock but slightly slower max boost clock (4.7 GHz).

This information was derived from the OPN (100-000000059-52_ 48/35 _ Y). According to Igor, these are presumably the final clocks, being that “Vermeer” should be launching in just a few months (AMD has repeatedly assured us that Zen 3-based Ryzen processors will be out this year).

Igor also discovered that AMD is adding per-core voltage adjustment settings to the BIOS, something that should be familiar to overclockers who’ve dabbled with Intel’s 10th Gen Core processors.
