AMD Threadripper Pro 7995WX workstation processor has once more been pushed to its limits by the overclocking community. The 6GHz barrier has been crossed thanks to liquid nitrogen, and with it comes massive performance gains in the Cinebench benchmark.
Not even a day after its official release, the Threadripper Pro 7995WX is being put through its paces by extreme overclockers. First, Elmor, Der8auer, and Shamino managed to push AMD’s latest beast to 6GHz with the help of liquid nitrogen (LN2). This netted a massive 201,501 points in Cinebench R23. Then, Safedisk came in swinging with a an even loftier score of 210,702.
Such performance doesn’t come free, as the CPU pulled around 1,600W for the duration of Elmor, Der8auer and Shamino’s test. Thankfully, during normal operations, which top at 5.3GHz on this 96-core Zen 4 chip, consumption hovers around 350W. This achievement joins one of the earlier records held by an air-cooled setup which racked up 161,259 points at 4.79GHz.
The performance was so high that the benchmark only took a couple of seconds to finish. For reference, it took my Ryzen 5 7600X nearly a minute to finish the same test.
Safedisk cranked things up further, pushing the Threadripper Pro 7995WX OC to 6,250MHz. Using this, the Korean overclocker managed to squeeze another 9,201 points. Better yet, who knows if this is the upper limit? More record-breaking attempts might be right around the corner, since this chip keeps surprising us.
If you fancy having some of this performance at home or work, you better be ready to drop between $1,499 and $9,999. Multiple performance tiers are available depending on your needs starting from 24-cores and maxing out at a massive 96. We have already tested the 64-cores/128-threads Threadripper 7980X for you if you are searching for a ‘cheaper’ alternative.
