Wrap your head around a 32-core/64-thread HEDT processor with a mental 5.752 GHz overclock. That's what TSAIK achieved, by with 58.0X multiplier (pulling a 99.12 MHz base-clock), 1.1 V core voltage, and other clock domains kept stable. This amounts to a staggering 55 percent overclock over the 3.70 GHz nominal clock for the 3970X. The motherboard used is an MSI Creator TRX40, while the memory was 16 GB, defaulting at 2133 MHz DDR. A liquid nitrogen evaporator was used to cool the chip. The overclock was validated to CPU-Z database.

All core? More like 1 core, 3 cores at 2557 MHz, and the rest pegged at 2182 MHz. Though, being able to hit this high of a frequency with 32 cores enabled, is a feat. Also, southbridge X570??

They need this promotional stuff to compensate for the clock freq deficit and capture mindshare. Especially after the shambolic power plan and boostgate

the clock deficit don't effect the per core performance, zen-3000 cores 4200 mhz it's equal to 9900KH at 5000 mhz, mybe becuase it have more than 10 times more cache xD and a few other thing like improve latencies
what is mega lol is the name starship xD with this thing you can realy build your own NASA :)

you have to understand it not possible what you whant :x the mosfet, caps and even resistor and even the conduits iteselfs would burn out from this :x that the problem
if you prime95 a processor like this (even old version without AVX) it will blow, on 4200 it reach 74 C with water, what you think hapen with this more than 5000 ?

That's my issue with the AMD design approach. Let's just increase the FPU EUs, uOP cache, L3 cache etc, no sophistication just brute force thanks to the process shrink. Look at Sunny Coves 18% uplift through more conservative but intelligent changes and the 10th gen focus on a performance shift on 4/6 cores at an entirely new power envelope. AMD is relentlessly pushing an archaic design scheme all the way to zen 4 and 5nm

I can't blame their chiplet/core focus because they need the server money. Nice of them to benefit consumers as well. The 3600 is a very good chip.

Take a walk around HWBOT Cinebench scores with around 5.3 Ghz OC TR 3970's.

It is indeed insane. Just a bit shy of 64C Rome.

Hmmm..

5.75 GHz at 1.1v ?
Exactly. 5.75 Ghz and 1.1V? That is incredible.

Besides the improved prefetcher show me any changes that aren't basically beefier memory subsystem, cache or ALU units. Anything that isn't low hanging fruit for a new process.

Well you said archaic about Ryzen where the CPU's first iteration was released 2 years ago. Now you have gen 10 Intel which is basically refresh of a refreshed refresh and this is supposed to bring something new? If you count meaningful changes in Intel's CPUs arch over the decade, we should end up with gen 3 now I suppose. Actually the only new stuff was the Skylake-x with its mesh arch which is pretty cool in my opinion. All other is basically same stuff, bump in frequency and cache added AVX 512 and that is mostly all. 10 gen is slower than 9th 9980XE probably due to security mitigations bringing nothing new to the table and it costs a lot still. Yet this is new in your opinion?
You get why people call you a fanboy now?

a $2000 chip hitting those speeds with an LN2 evaporator is a new record imo.

Me I just point to the performance and the power it uses for it, and Zen (especially 2) definitely delivers.

The voltage value must be incorrect, I guess because the brand new board is not yet mapped correctly by cpu-z
We will see correct readings after the next updates - hopefully

I would like to see nudeCNC make a direct die contact waterblock for these beasts...
It would help a lot... such a big heat spreader and dies all over the place have to be some sort of a heat trap at some point.
Liquid metal would help but still...

Much more interesting than those records few years ago which were achieved by disabling cores and HT. Just wondering that why the bus isn't stable 100MHz? My B450 + R5 2600 does the same.

I mean archaic design?
Sunny cove is technically newer, but Ryzen is more forward thinking, really. Any Ryzen. Sunny Cove is still stuck in monolithic land and gaming will be the only place they'll win with that deck of cards until it all eventually falls down...

Well you said archaic about Ryzen where the CPU's first iteration was released 2 years ago. Now you have gen 10 Intel which is basically refresh of a refreshed refresh and this is supposed to bring something new?

I mean, Nehalem to Sandy Bridge was a leap.

Haswell was kinda a leap but took time to show it's stuff.

Skylake was a minor improvement.

I'm counting like 2.5 gens in there (3.5 if you count Sunny Coves release)

It's like Intel took 10 years to do the Ryzen lineups progress since inception.

its one core...you are aware your words infer all cores/threads, yes?
Did you know that once you put a chip under LN2, power consumption of that chip drops significant compared to running on air or water?
That doesnt mean it is correct. Even with one core and under ln2, this is surely not reading the right thing. ;)

Well i think it is correct, these are 7nm chips and heat density is a huge issue on these things. The lower you can put the voltage, the lower it's consumption will be. Add LN2 on top of that and the power requirement for the chip drops as well.
