It's game on for clock-speed records, as some of the first ones are being set with the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X "Zen 4" processors. The first such feat is an absolute clock-speed record of 7.25 GHz (7247 MHz), set without disabling any cores. This is probably the highest clock achieved on a single core for "Zen 4," set using a multiplier value of 72.5x, and a scorching 1.506 V juice. The second feat is even more impressive, even though it's a lower-clock speed in absolute terms. The 7950X was overclocked to 6.50 GHz across all cores (that's all 16 of its cores). This was set using a core voltage of 1.465 V. In both feats, extreme cooling solutions such as liquid-nitrogen evaporators were used, and this only the first round of OC feats with these chips. Interesting times ahead for 7950X vs. i9-13900K overclocking and benchmark feats. The 6.50 GHz all-core OC in particular could pose a formidable challenge to the i9-13900K, which can sustain its maximum (5 GHz+) all-core OC clocks only on its 8 P-cores.

Clock speed advantage neutralized amongst both parties. It’s all about the IPC in the apps most important to you now.

For some...for me, I will continue to support AMD even if Intel is 5%-10% faster as it's in the best interests of all consumers for AMD to get as close as possible to 50% marketshare to achieve a balance of power between them and Intel. AMD and Intel being at parity is what will result in the best possible situation for consumers, but If the day ever comes where AMD has a majority of the marketshare, then I will support Intel.

I agree. Same goes for the GPU market IMHO.

7950x is the top bin silicon, so only good results, 7.2ghz at 1.50v is incredible even if is 1 core and cannot even run a benchmark.

Again this doesn't mean a lot. I'd still rather have more power efficiency.

I will support AMD until they reach 80-90% marketshare and observe what they do with it. We know that about Intel.

AMD is getting near in GHz to intel :) - Need to wait for 13th IPC gains nos. that is the only thing left to compare :)
