AMD Ryzen 7000 series processors are not yet on sale, but are already actively setting new records in various benchmarks, as evidenced by HWBot ratings. Earlier this week, four records were reported by the Ryzen 9 7950X with liquid cooling, and now Tom’s Hardware writes that some of those records were surpassed using the Ryzen 9 7950X and liquid nitrogen.
First, let’s recall that Ryzen 9 7950X with a Corsair H115i liquid cooling system with a 280 mm radiator allowed to overclock all 16 cores to frequencies of 5.35-5.5 GHz. This made it possible to update the records for 16-core processors in multi-thread tests of benchmarks such as Cinebench R23, Cinebench R20 and Cinebench R15, as well as in the test of the archiver 7-Zip.
Now the flagship AMD Ryzen 9 7950X has been overclocked even more, but under extreme conditions with the help of liquid nitrogen. In the Cinebench R23 multi-threaded test, the AMD processor was overclocked to 6.45 GHz and achieved a result in 48,235 points and this is immediately 16.2% higher than the maximum result that the Core i9-12900KS achieves even when overclocking with liquid nitrogen.
In the Cinebench R20 test, the Ryzen 9 7950X processor was overclocked to 6.5 GHz and thus delivered a result in 18,605 points. That’s 15.8% better than the previous best result achieved by liquid nitrogen-cooled processors (Ryzen 9 5950X up to 6 GHz).
Note that we are obviously waiting for many more updates of records in the near future, as is usually the case with the release of a new generation of processors. Ryzen 7000 will be released on September 27th. In addition, the 13th generation Intel Core processors (Raptor Lake), which will also fight for new HWBot rating records, are to appear in the second half of October.
