AMD Ryzen R7 1800X Overclocked to 5.8 GHz, Breaks Cinebench R15 And HWBot World Records
AMD’s newest line of Ryzen processors has only been out for a few days, but the company has already broken a world record with its top of the line Ryzen R7 1800X CPU. The 8-core processor was wildly tested and tinkered with by two overclockers, including the popular overclocker Der8auer. He was able to get the Ryzen R7 1800X CPU working at a clock speed op 5.8 GHz, a substantial improvement compared to the regular 3.6 GHz base clock. Swedish overclocker Elmor was able to get the 1800X to 5.36 GHz, a very impressive result as well.
New Cinebench R15 World Record
Remarkably, Elmor didn’t need to turn off all eight cores in order to maintain the stable overclock, which means multi-core performance was perfectly up to par. In fact, it even broke the Cinebench R15 (a popular benchmark for testing processing power) multi-core world record with a final result of 2454 points. That’s only nine points higher than the previous world record, which was being held by the Intel Core i7 5960X running at 6.00 GHz. AMD’s most powerful Ryzen chip scores better than Intel despite using a lower clock speed, which means the IPC (instructions per cycle) of the RX 1700X are slightly yet surely higher than the 5960X.
Not only is the R7 1800X a new world record holder, but overclocker Der8auer has managed to get a first spot on the HWBot record for octa-cores as well. Final statistics are a clock speed of 5.802,93 MHz, a multiplier of 44.5 and a bus speed of 130.4 MHz. All eight cores and sixteen threads of the R7 1800X remained active. Liquid nitrogen was being used to cool the CPU in both cases in order to achieve these performances.
Overclocking result of Der8auer
Two new world records are back in the camp of AMD and its Ryzen processors in a market that was dominated by Intel for a very long time. One thing is for sure: Ryzen has definitely made an impact in the overclocking world.
