The upcoming AMD Ryzen 9 7950X has been seen setting four new records using an AIO cooling solution but then also pushed even further on LN2. This Zen 4 16c/32t processor is getting pushed to its limits ahead of its September 27 release and showing that it has some impressive overclocking potential. First up AMD’s own XOC team used a 280mm Corsair AIO to set four records. Processor temps were said to peak at around 108C, just shy of the 115C TjMax limit, so using a larger AIO is probably recommended for more long-term use beyond benchmarking.

Additionally, the processor was spotted hitting an all-core speed of 5.79 GHz but the uploader didn’t include complete details regarding the setup or other scores. It is theorized that the feat was achieved using a custom loop of some sort. According to AMD, the processor is designed to be overclocked to 5.85 GHz while using Precision Boot Overdrive but that only boosts 2 cores. Interestingly enough it was reported the processor was sitting at a cool temp of 39.5C.

Lastly, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X was pushed to its limits on LN2. It managed an impressive 6.50 GHz across all cores with a core voltage of 1.465 V. A single-core clock speed of 7.247 GHz was also achieved but with the core voltage cranked up to 1.506 V. Obviously most users would never use such settings for day-to-day tasks but it does show the processor still has some overclocking headroom if given the appropriate cooling solution and other hardware.

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.
