AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X reaches 5.37GHz

New record from TheOverclocker

We have covered TheOverclocker breaking records in the past and apparently he did it again. This time he pushed an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X CPU to 5.37GHz using ASUS’ ROG X399 Zenith Extreme motherboard and liquid nitrogen cooling. The clock speed was achieved pushing the BCLK to 107.96 MHz in combination with a multiplier of 49.75.

As we mentioned before, the system was based on an ASUS ROG X399 Zenith Extreme motherboard and an AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 1950X CPU, which was pushed to 5.37GHz at 1.67v. Aside of that there was 32GB of DDR4 memory set to work at 2500MHz and CL9 timings. Running these clock speeds the system achieved 4'514 points in Cinebench R15. This the highest score that’s been realized with a Ryzen Threadripper 1950X chip so far, outperforming several Xeon E5 processors by quite a margin. However the AMD processor is not fast enough to beat the new Core i9-7960X when run at similar clock speeds.

According to AMD, the Summit Ridge dies that are part of Ryzen Threadripper are heavily binned. AMD Ryzen Threadripper hand-selected CPUs should be the top 5% highest performing Summit Ridge dies.

AMD appears to be making sure that the highest quality dies are going to be used in the case of their Ryzen Threadripper chips. This ensures low leakage power and therefore allows the chips to run cooler, due to lower power draw. Hopefully the current record gets broken soon and we’re going to witness even higher clock speeds with Ryzen Threadripper based systems.
