The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X processor has been setting and breaking a whole handful of records over at HWBot, amply demonstrating the potency of Team Red’s latest threat to Intel at the high-end of the CPU market. Eleven records were set with the 3970X, mostly in combination with an Asus ROG Zenith II Extreme TRX40 board, while an MSI Creator TRX40 motherboard was used for the 5.75 GHz overclock achievement.

AMD must love the news in regard to its Ryzen Threadripper 3970X chip lately. Not only has the HEDT processor been scoring records galore with Asus’s ROG Zenith II Extreme TRX40 board, but it was also pushed to an incredible clock of 5,752.97 MHz with the help of the Creator TRX40 motherboard from MSI. A noted overclocker called TSAIK has posted proof of the crazy clock on HWBot’s database, which was achieved across all 32 cores of the monster chip.

Moving on from the astonishing 5.75 GHz overclock, the Ryzen Threadripper 3970X was also involved in 11 other feats of speed and strength that will amaze and delight desktop specialists looking for a super-powered processor. It may cost US$1,999, but looking at the scores recorded it’s clear to see that those willing to cough up that much for the Threadripper 3970X will get the performance they are paying for and expect.

The full list is posted below (courtesy of Hexus), but a couple of record highlights include a whopping 185,114 points in the multi-core benchmark of Geekbench 3, which is currently the HWBot world record for that particular CPU benchmark, and a score of 62,483 points recorded in Geekbench 4’s multi-core test. Other highlights are the 14.154 seconds for wPrime – 1024m and 31.067 seconds in GPUPI for CPU – 1B, which are both classified as HWBot world records. The Asus ROG Zenith II Extreme TRX40 board was used in conjunction with the Threadripper 3970X for the majority of the amazing scores, but MSI’s Creator TRX40 was used for the overclock record and also for the global first place in HWBOT x265 Benchmark – 4k.

These numerous overclocking and processing speed records appear to be solid evidence that the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X is living up to expectations. The 32-core Ryzen 3000-series processor is at the head of the table in terms of AMD’s Zen 2 output at the moment, although there will be a 64-core chip that will replace it sometime next year and will undoubtedly impress everyone with even more incredible world records upon its release.
