The AMD Threadripper PRO 5995WX has been used to set a new Cinebench world record using LN2 on an MSI workstation WRX80 motherboard. TSAIK overclocked the premium $6,499 64-core processor to 5.15 GHz and paired it with 128 GB DDR5-3200 memory to score 116,142 points in the R23 multithread test. MSI only just released the full specifications for the sleek-looking WRX80 a few weeks ago and one is currently listed for $954.08 at B&H Photo so anyone hoping to achieve similar results is looking at upwards of over $8,000 for such a setup once all other costs are included, but it doesn’t hurt to dream. The good news is if all one is worried about is setting a record then someone could skate by with an NVIDIA GT640 to try and keep some of the costs down, as seen in the pictures.

This is not the first time an AMD processor has held the R23 multithread record. It turns out that, including the Zen3-based Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX, AMD holds the top 20 records for the popular benchmark. Previously the record was held by a Ryzen Threadripper 3990X after it had been overclocked to over 5.2 GHz.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
