The storm has reached another peak as AMD shows off its Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7995WX processor breaking multiple records. The forthcoming CPU was already seen breaking records last month and now professional overclocking specialist SAMPSON has used it to raise the bar(s) even further. SAMPSON achieved the new records using a behemoth sized air-cooler to keep the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7995WX in check. An IceGiant ProSiphone Elite, featuring 4x 120mm fans, was mounted to the 96-core processor which peaked at just under 1000W during benchmarking, only 75% CPU usage, and reached a maximum temperature of 103°C. While that temperature is nearly ten degrees higher that what the processor is rated for it was still able to perform under the skillful watch of SAMPSON.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7995WX processor breaks the overclocked multi-thread performance world record – with just an air cooler. 🏆— AMD Ryzen (@AMDRyzen) November 15, 2023

IceGiant ProSiphone Elite
As mentioned, the IceGiant ProSiphone Elite is anything but “just an air cooler”. It is designed for industrial applications such as a Threadripper and retails for ~$170 at Microcenter. However, the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7995WX could easily fall into the price category of “if you have to ask. . .”, and there’s already one offer for it on Amazon at over seventeen thousand USD, so spending a little over a buck-fifty for one probably wouldn’t be an issue for someone wanting to keep the flagship CPU air cooled. Below is a short video showing installation on a Threadripper, just to give some perspective of the cooler’s size and usage scenario.
As AMD shows off these new Cinebench scores it should be noted that SAMPSON also revealed how an ASUS WS TRX50-SAGE WIFI motherboard was used in setting them. This motherboard can be seen here, and at a glance will get the heart pumping for many entusiasts with its clean, no-frills, design that is clearly meant to get to the job done. The AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7995WX officially launches next week on November 21.
