Ryzen 9 7950X liquid cooled faster than Core i9-12900KS and Ryzen 9 5950X liquid nitrogen

While the Ryzen 9 7950X processor won’t go on sale until next week, some overclockers have already got their hands on CPU specs, even posting record-breaking 16-core results in multiple synthetic benchmarks. What’s even more interesting, they didn’t need extreme cooling for this.

Enthusiasts Sampson and Blueleader have updated the 16-core records in Cinebench R23, Cinebench R20, Cinebench R15 and 7-Zip with an overclocked Ryzen 9 7950X. They forced the processor to work at a frequency of 5.35-5.5 GHz for all 16 cores, depending on the test. Only a ready-made Corsair H115i liquid cooling system with a 280 mm radiator was used. The temperatures in the tests ranged from 87 to 108 ° C and the power consumption from 226 to 244 watts.

As a result, the Ryzen 9 7950X processor scored 5.4 GHz in the multi-threaded Cinebench R23 test 40,498 pointsand beat the previous record holder Core i9-12900KS. At the same time, the latter had to be cooled with liquid nitrogen for 40,412 points and overclocked to 7 GHz. Now it will be very interesting to see what the Ryzen 9 7950X will deliver with extreme cooling.

In Cinebench R20, AMD’s new flagship clocked at 5.35 GHz with a score of 15,771 pointsand thus beats the Ryzen 9 5950X overclocked to 6 GHz under liquid nitrogen. And in Cinebench R15, the novelty overclocks to 5.5 GHz and scores 6900 points – The previous record also belonged to the Ryzen 9 5950X overclocked to 6 GHz under liquid nitrogen.

Finally, the record was updated in 7-Zip, where the Ryzen 9 7950X at 5.45GHz showed a result 228,922 MIPS. The previous record was held by the Ryzen 9 5950X with 5.24 GHz under liquid nitrogen.
