Extreme overclocker, SkatterBencher, overclocked AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 5990X HEDT CPU to 4.82GHz across all 64 cores on a dedicated water loop setup.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X CPU overclocked to 4.82GHz across all 64 Zen 3 cores to break 100,000 points in Cinebench R23
Threadripper is considered a very strong processor till date. Processor like this wasn’t available before. It is a multi tasking processor which can do multiple tasks like gaming, HD video editing, voice recordings, streaming, CAD all at a same time. Threadripper makes the user work independently and creatively with freedom.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU tested by scatter post It is the 5990X chip and it is not an official chip released by the Red Team. In fact, it’s an engineering sample that an overclocker can get and features 64 cores, 128 threads, 288MB of L3 cache, and clock speeds of up to 2.65GHz in stock (2.27GHz on average). CPU tested on ASUS ROG ZENITH II Extreme Alpha with 32GB (8 x 4) DDR4-2144 memory. For cooling, a dedicated EK-Quantum ring water cooler was used.
This specific sample is named with the OPN code “100-000000443-40_Y” which is similar to the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 models shown in Various reference databases. This confirms the fact that AMD had standard Non-Pro chips as engineering samples but decided not to release them for unknown reasons. Based on AMD’s HEDT’s latest strategyHowever, it looks like the company will focus mostly on the Workstation and Pro segment which means the standard Threadripper X-Series chips will be missing in action for the foreseeable future. The other important thing is that the CPU works with the TRX40 ZENITH II Extreme while the Threadripper 5000WX CPUs do nothing other than The WRX80 platform is more expensive.
Now back to the benchmarks, SkatterBencher is known for using all kinds of overclocking strategies that include PBO, Curve Optimizers, and manual overclocking. The best results on the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X CPU were achieved by manual overclocking which is no big surprise. The only drawback is the limited maximum frequency of the single-thread boost, but the advantages of manual overclocking outweigh the negatives and are better compared to a PBO when you are looking for the highest performance gains. Tested on each CCD and its 8 CCDs on a Ryzen Threadripper 5990X chip, the CCD4 delivered the best tuning results, achieving up to 4.82GHz at 1.45V.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X OC vs Stock CPU:
In terms of performance, compared to the stock HEDT chip, the manually overclocked AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X CPU achieved over 50% gains in the AI benchmark, a 58% increase in the Cinebench R23, and a more than 80% performance increase in the AI benchmark. 3DMark CPU Profile benchmark. CPU too I broke the 100,000 mark (100,000) The Cinebench R23 is multi-threaded and it’s just crazy.
That’s not all, overclocking also provides a file Guide to achieving 4.65GHz in 5 minutes On an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X CPU.
AMD has confirmed that they aren’t done with Threadripper CPUs and will be releasing Zen 4 parts next year but whether they remain a Pro-only solution or come in DIY flavors for mainstream HEDT platforms remains to be seen.
No doubt AMD Threadripper will be providing you excellent gaming performance. If you are planning to buy a workstation for your office work, designing, coding, etc but you also like gaming and want that your workstation supports gaming too then Threadripper will be the best option.
