Official overclocking support is reportedly coming to the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. The claim stems from hardware site OC3D, which tweeted on Saturday that AMD is planning to enable overclocking on its new 8C/16T processor with 3D V-Cache technology. This will supposedly be made possible via AMD’s Curve Optimizer, a feature that debuted alongside the Ryzen 5000 Series to allow users to undervolt their processors. The news follows at least two successful overclocking attempts of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D by early owners, including TSAIK, who managed to take the “ultimate gaming processor” to over 5.1 GHz yesterday, a pretty substantial improvement over the CPU’s standard maximum boost clock of 4.5 GHz. AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D will be available beginning this Wednesday, April 20, at an MSRP of $449.

[…] fellow outlet OC3D alleges that AMD is working to enable some form of overclocking support on the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. The site revealed this information on its Twitter post which was about the 5800X3D review. The feature will purportedly work via AMD’s Curve Optimizer, a feature which was introduced by the company back in 2020 with AGESA 1.1.0.0 Patch D (via @AMDRyzen on Twitter). The feature allows for per core voltage-frequency tweaking on AMD chips.

For now though, overclocking enthusiasts are using the BCLK (base clock) method to achieve overclocking on the 5800X3D.

Recently, SkatterBencher was able to reach 4.74GHz stable using a similar Asus Voltage Suspension method on his X570 ROG CROSSHAIR VIII EXTREME (C8E) motherboard with a BCLK of ~104MHz. He also achieved 4.8GHz with a BCLK of ~106MHz (via SkatterBencher on Twitter).
