AMD's 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X has already been pushed to 5.55GHz by overclockers

Sometimes, 64 cores just isn't enough

AMD has officially launched its Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor, and with it comes a slew of new overclocking world records. That's right, AMD's Threadripper 3990X isn't even a day old, and it is already setting records.

First up is TSAIK's record overclock of 5.55GHz, which was achieved on MSI's TRX40 Creator motherboard and a single stick of DDR4 DRAM at memory speeds of 1866MHz with CL13 timings. While others have reported that this was an all-core overclock of 5.5GHz, TSAIK's HWBOT submission only shows a single core running at this speed. 

What's more impressive is the all-core 5.3GHz overclock that was achieved by SPLAVE, which was able to achieve a mind-bending score of 39518 on Cinebench R20. This overclock was completed on an ASRock TRX40 Taichi motherboard with two 1250W power supplies and G.Skill NEO memory which was running at 3200MHz with CL11 timings. This overclock was achieved using liquid nitrogen cooling. 

Over the coming days, overclocking enthusiasts worldwide will be putting AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 3990X through its paces, so expect to see more world record attempts in the coming days and weeks. 

At stock, AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 3990X can already deliver mindbending levels of CPU performance in multi-threaded tasks, but in the world of hardcore overclocking, a CPU's stock performance is never enough. One has to wonder if we will ever see such a high Cinebench R20 score on a consumer-grade CPU at stock, and if so, how long will it take for such a processor to hit the market?

435Watt at load yikes!

What will scare the living bejeezus out of you however is the 'Ryze' of power consumption with all 64 cores @ 3800 MHz and full load. That's double what it was initially. So the question is not 'can you overclock Threadripper processors', but rather, 'do you really want to overclock?'.

Not that bad honestly. Not sure what you could expect? 435watts is still on par roughly with other Zen 2 CPUs at around 7 watts per core.Quote

I agree. I am still stuck 5 years in the past. Need to get my head around the direction we are taking with architecture now.

That being said. I looked again at the intro to the Guru3D review. I just love this wording used. It makes me wonder, what Intel's next steps really are. We hear one thing on the media but what goes on behind closed doors is probably far more tense and hostile.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X (64c/128t)

The year is 2020 and today we are reviewing a new processor, a processor that reaches biblical proportions as, when it's fully utilized, it offers so much raw performance there is literally nothing comparable on the market, from any competitor. We review the all-new AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, the behemoth of processors has actually made it to the home office and pro-consumer market at prices that will baffle Intel. This mega-core processor has 64 physical processor cores and 128 logical cores, all powered by ZEN2 architecture. This review is about to shock, awe and then some.
Love it!Quote
