AMD processors can achieve impressive results when undervolted, and the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is no exception. One user has shown how it can perform at close to factory specs even when power has been significantly decreased.
Shaun (@Diabolical_genius) undervolted his chip to 1 V while keeping all cores at 4.4 GHz. CPU-Z results show off the achievement.
The system included an ASUS PRIME X570-Pro motherboard, Patriot DDR4-2133 memory, custom loop with 420 mm radiator, and 3x 140 mm fans. The processor hit 43°c in Cinebench, and the peak power draw was said to be 73 watts. He was able to lower the voltage to 0.844V and keep the same clock speeds with a max power draw of 53 watts, and the temperature dropped by a couple of degrees.
AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D has been proving itself to be a rival to Intel’s Core i9-12900KF. Shaun’s experiment shows it can have impressive results even at lower power consumption and heat generation.
