An overclocker has pushed the limits of AMD’s new processor Ryzen 9 5950X using liquid nitrogen cooling. The processor managed to reach 6.3 GHz after overclocking.
Although Intel, which has a large market share, comes to mind first when it comes to PC processors, there is an increasingly stronger competitor: AMD. With its Ryzen processors, the company is gaining market share while capturing users’ minds. The company’s newly released processor is also on this path.
The Ryzen 5000 series desktop CPUs that AMD released this week were sold out as soon as they came out. The reason for this high demand for the CPU is that it promises a stronger performance than its rival Intel Core i9-10900K. However, in addition to this, having a higher number of cores compared to its competitor was an important factor, which also means faster productivity performance.
AMD Ryzen 5950X breaks overclocking record
Such powerful processors can become the favorite of gamers and technology enthusiasts. Overclocking technology enthusiasts push the limits of the processors with various cooling methods.
HiCookie, one of the popular names in this regard, was able to use liquid nitrogen cooling to accelerate all 16 cores of the Ryzen 9 5950X to 6.362 GHz. HiCookie used a Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master motherboard and 16GB of Corsair DDR4 RAM in this trial.
In addition, the Cinebench R20 test could also be performed, as the overclocking process is quite stable. The processor managed to score 15,517 points in this test. Techspot states that the processor received 10,157 points in its own tests, which can be seen from here that a very impressive result was achieved with overclocking. Its predecessor, the Ryzen 9 3950X, scored 12,757 points in the Cinebench R20 with liquid nitrogen cooling.
