As you know, some of the 4th Gen Intel Xeon processors (Sapphire Rapids) released last month have an unlocked multiplier that allows them to be overclocked manually. One of these processors is the flagship Intel Xeon W9-3495X with 56 cores. Its overclocking set a new performance world record in the synthetic Cinebench R23 test.
So far, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX has been named the fastest desktop processor in Cinebench R23 with 64 cores and 128 threads. According to the HWBot database, the AMD processor was overclocked to 5.4 GHz on all cores by the South Korean enthusiast safedisk, after which it scored 121,215 points in the multithread performance test.
Greek OGS team using liquid nitrogen, overclocks the Intel Xeon W9-3495X to a frequency of 5.4 GHz on all cores. After that, the Intel processor was able to score 132,484 points in the same multi-threaded performance test.
For the experiment, we used the ASUS Pro WS W790E-SAGE SE motherboard and a 128GB G.Skill Zeta R5 DDR5 5800 RAM kit.
The Intel processor not only set a new performance record in Cinebench R23, but also broke several other records in Cinebench R20, Y-Cruncher, 3DMark CPU and Geekbench 3.
