AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X Processor Overclocked to 4.82 GHz, Smashes 100,000 Points in Cinebench R23 and Provides 80% Performance Boost vs. Stock Chip

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 'Chagall' HEDT CPUs Allegedly Delayed To 2022

Extreme overclocking specialist SkatterBencher overclocked AMD’s unreleased Ryzen Threadripper 5990X HEDT CPU to an impressive 4.82 GHz across all 64 cores in a custom water-cycle setup.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X CPU Overclocked To 4.82 GHz All 64 Of Zen 3 Cores To Smash 100,000 Points In Cinebench R23

AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU tested by ScatterBencher The 5990X, which is not a chip officially released by the red team. In fact, it’s an engineering example of what the overclocker can achieve and has 64 cores, 128 threads, 288MB of L3 cache, and clock speeds up to 2.65GHz at stock (2.27GHz on average). CPU tested on ASUS ROG ZENITH II Extreme Alpha with 32GB (8 x 4) DDR4-2144 memory. An EK-Quantum custom loop water cooler was used for cooling.

This particular example is labeled as OPN code ‘100-000000443-40_Y’, which is similar to the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 examples shown here. various benchmark databases. This confirms that AMD has standard Non-Pro chips as engineering samples but has decided not to release them for unknown reasons. AMD based latest HEDT strategyIt looks like the company will focus more on the workstation and Pro segment, which means standard Threadripper X-Series chips won’t be in action for the foreseeable future. Another important point is that the CPU should work with the TRX40 ZENITH II Extreme, while Threadripper 5000WX CPUs do not need to run on anything else. The more expensive WRX80 platform.


Now back to benchmarks, SkatterBencher is known for using all kinds of overclocking strategies, including PBO, Curve Optimizers, and manual overclocking. On the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X CPU, the best results were achieved with manual overclocking, which wasn’t that big of a surprise. The only downside is the limited maximum single-thread boost frequency, but manual overclocking outweighs the pros and cons, and is better when fishing for peak performance gains compared to PBO. Each CCD was tested, and of the 8 CCDs on the Ryzen Threadripper 5990X chip, the CCD4 delivered the best tuning results, reaching 4.82 GHz at 1.45V.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X 100K Cinebench R23 Recording:

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X OC and Stock Processor:

Performance-wise, compared to the stock HEDT chip, the manually overclocked AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X CPU achieved performance gains of over 50% in AI Benchmark, 58% in Cinebench R23, and over 80% in 3DMark CPU. Profile comparison. The CPU also Smashed the 100K (100,000) point barrier Cinebench R23 Multi-threaded which is just crazy. During Cinebench run, the chip maxed out at 4.525GHz clock speeds and a CPU temperature of up to 95C. The CPU consumed an insane 691W of pack power with manual overclocking.

That’s not all, overclocking is also a Guide to reaching 4.65 GHz in 5 minutes At AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X CPU. Whether this will work in the same way as a 5995WX remains to be seen until users buy the chip in the DIY segment. There will be some motherboards such as MSI WSWRX80, ASUS WRX80 PRO WS SAGE SE, ASRock WRX80 Builderand Gigabyte WRX80 SU8 Offering overclocking support on Threadripper Pro CPUs. This is confirmed by Tomshardware after being contacted by an official AMD representative as noted below:

[Editor’s Note: After publishing this story, an AMD representative contacted us via email, pointing out that the 5000 WX-series is actually unlocked for overclocking, contrary to the statements below. The company also provided a link to public documents about Threadripper 5000 WX that states, in part, ” Select WRX80 motherboards from our ODM partners will support both memory and CPU overclocking for users looking to push the limits of their workstation even further.”

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.
